Video Golf Tip | Knee Flex In Stance
By Brent Franklin

Hi, I am Brent Franklin with McGetrick Golf Academy here in Denver. What I want to talk to you today about is knee flex and the proper amount of knee flex in the golf swing. This is one thing that I see more people get wrong than perhaps anything else in the swing. I see a lot of people stand up and then they are either too bent over, they have their knees too far forward, or the stand in and they have straight legs and they do not flex at all. This will really help you kind of get the proper amount of knee flex that you are looking for. What you want to do in your posture is basically stand nice and tall, your rear end is going to go back and pull your shoulders and chest out over the front of your feet, and all you are going to do is basically unlock your knees. Just a little bit. Just enough to feel a little bit of spring and little bit of tension. Stand up over the ball, stand straight up in the air once again, rear end is going to go back, it is going to pull your shoulders out and then all you are going to basically do is unlock your knees. They are already pre set in a good position here. We don't have too much flex going this way and too straight legged going this way. You really want the right amount of knee flex to help support your golf swing and I think that is going to make a lot of difference.

Slice Cause: Right Elbow Tucking or pulling your right elbow down during the downswing causes your left elbow to move away from your body, creating an angle that leads to a slice
Effective Practice Practicing at the range with a mid iron, not your driver, and if you have too steep a swing plane, practice off a tee
High-Spin Chips Allow the butt of the club to stop at impact while the clubhead continue to the finish in order to create the spin necessary to make the ball check up after a couple of bounces
