Fix Poor Golf Posture for Better Aim

Fix Poor Golf Posture for Better Aim

Control Your Golf Swing with Better Posture

When someone comes to me for a lesson and I see a ball pattern where they are hitting one ball left, one right and one to the center, but their ball pattern is completely scattered, what I do is I look to check their posture. I get behind them and I look right here, and in most cases here is what I am going to see.

Do Not Keep Weight Over Toes

I will see that the upper body weight is forward, which means that the weight is out over my toes. When the weight is out over my toes when I swing I am going to lose my balance. When I lose my balance I can fall in to the shot or I can fall away from the shot. That ball can go left, it can go right or it can go straight. When I mention this to them about how they fell with their balance almost every one of them says the same thing, that they do not feel that they are keeping their balance. So what they really need to do is adjust their posture.

Once I get them from way out over their toes into a better posture position where the weight is out evenly over their feet and the weight is out evenly over their body, almost immediately we see a better ball pattern. So if you are having problems with your ball pattern check your posture.
