  • Description

    Golf posture is one of the most overlooked critical aspects of the golf swing, but one of the easiest places to make big improvements! This golf instruction video shows you how to develop a proper golf setup for increased power and reduced chance of injury in the golf swing.

    Video Practice Points
    • Many golfers round their necks or shoulders forward at setup - this is incorrect
    • Hinge from the hips at setup, rather than bending at the waist
    • Roll your ankles slightly inward and outward to find the balance point where your weight is centered
    • Rock forward and back to find the balance point where your weight is over the center of your ankles

Golf Posture

The correct golf setup and golf posture will increase your shoulder turn and reduce back pain! Every golfer wonders to himself why he doesn't look the same at address as Tiger Woods or other greats. After all, they are just standing still, right? It seems that if nowhere else, that is the ONE place in the swing where everyone can be just like Tiger! However, there has been a lot of confusing information in the golf world that has lead to the incorrect belief that there is no one way to setup to the golf ball and everyone's golf posture should look different. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Proper Golf Setup

The golf setup position is a relatively static position in the golf swing compared to others, but that doesn't mean it's not important to a proper golf swing. In fact, a poor golf posture is equally detrimental to your golf swing as a bad golf takeaway.

The good news is that with our golf posture drills in this instruction video, you can get a golf posture that looks like the pros every single time. Just setting up to the golf ball correctly will help ensure that your body can rotate properly during the golf swing and help you create more power with less effort and less chance of a golf swing injury.
