Video Golf Tip | Shoulder Alignment At Address
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 shoulder tilt or alignment at address position. What I see a lot of people do and have a lot of problems with is they get up, when they are hitting a driver especially, and they have their right side way too high and it throws their shoulders out of line. A simple way you can rectify this is to stand normally, where you are talking to somebody. Try to stay as level as you can as if you are having a conversation, and all I want you to do before you get into your set up or after you get your feet shoulder width apart of a little wider for a driver, just tilt a hair to your right. All it is is a little tiny move just to your right side and then go ahead and take your normal set up position. What this is going to do is help soften your right side a little bit, it is going to help your body work around your right side a little better as opposed to what most slicers I see have is they get their shoulders high and they come down very steep into the ball. Once again, standing up nice and tall like you are having a conversation, all you want to do is just have a slight tilt to the right and then bend over like you are going to hit the shot. You are already pre-set, when you turn now you are basically going to be loaded and a little behind the ball. Try this set up with your driver and I am sure it is going to help.
