Video Golf Tip | Correct Postural Tone

Denis: So what is correct postural tone for a golf swing? Well, to get a feel for it try this exercise. Hold the club in your left hand, form a fist and hold it against the back of your head. With your right hand, palm out, on the base of the spine, form a fist also. From here you can see already I have a different postural tone. Feet shoulder-width apart, tilt forward, the lower body and backside goes backwards to counterbalance the upper body going forward. From there, rest the club against your hips, hold your arms out to the side and just let them fall in front of you a couple times, really relaxed. In this position here, my head and spine are more in line and my arms are hanging freely and my shoulder blades have moved around my rib cage just a little bit. From there, to complete the setup, take your grip. Ramsay: Let’s relate this to the postural part we talked about earlier on. As you can see, the ear is over the shoulder and even though the shoulders are a little bit right of what you need to do with your golf swing, Denis still has fuel through those muscles we’re talking about earlier on. The lower tummy muscles are on and his upper body is counterbalanced with his lower body. There is very good balance positioning and there’s good balance at the lower base through the inner thighs and through the feet.

Better Delivery Position for a More Powerful Swing The delivery position of the swing is when the club shaft is parallel to the ground, at which point the right elbow and knee should have kicked in towards the center of your stance
Analyze Your Impact The only way to have a proper impact position is if the back of your left hand is square to the target at impact
Backswing: Arm Movement In the backswing the arms do not move back but rather hinge upwards
