Video Golf Tip | Spine Posture At Set Up

A key element of the golf swing is the body’s movement, and what really dictates the body’s movement is the structure of the body. What we want to do is be able to tilt the spine to the club shaft at a 90 degree angle and get in to a well balanced athletic posture. Additionally we want the spine to be erect as it is tilted. One way to do this is to put the club shaft down your back, relax your head, and get where you can tilt over where your spine is nice and erect. As I am tilting from the hips I am just letting my legs relax so that my weight falls to the center of my feet. Additionally, you will notice with a driver, my hands extend away from me so that I get the intersection of the club through the small of my back. So you should see a nice athletic look, spine should be tilted about 90 degrees to the club shaft. As I go to shorter club, a 7-iron, and I tilt to the club shaft, you will see that the spine is tilted over somewhat more than with the driver and the arms are hanging more downward. Again the intersection of the club through the small of the back is a constant. So what we are really saying here is that you need to tilt to the golf club, tilt the spine, and get in to a well balanced athletic posture. As you do that it is going to help your golf swing.
