Posture's Effect on the Takeaway
Posture at address is something that Tiger Woods always does right and it's something that can be done right every time by all golfers. However, once you setup to the golf ball correctly, you must ensure that your equipment works with you and not against you. I regularly see that most students have clubs that are too long for them once they are in the correct posture and they are then forced to manipulate the club during the takeaway rather than just glide their shoulder blade as I demonstrated in the Takeaway Video.
- Many golfers use clubs that are too long for them
- Correct club length depends on individual proportions, not just height
- Get into your ideal setup position, then add the club in and see if it fits - don't adjust your posture to suit an ill-fitting club!
- If the club is too long you'll tend to stand up too straight, won't get the club up on plane, etc.
