How to Set Up Your Golf Swing Like Tiger Woods

How to Set Up Your Golf Swing Like Tiger Woods

The Tiger Woods Golf Setup Position

One thing that anyone notices immediately with Tiger Woods is his set up position. It is absolutely perfect. Now that includes knee flex, bend from the waist, the straight back, the great posture, the shoulders back, the arms forming a perfect triangle right in front of his body and the great grip.

So when Tiger sets up to the golf ball he will aim the club first, take his stance, and then you will look at him and that is something you want to copy. The way he sets up to the golf ball. Set up determines a lot of things that are going to happen in your golf swing. You can correct many swing problems by just setting up better. Tiger looks to me that when he sets up somebody could give him a good push from behind or a good push forward and he would be rock solid. He is braced right into the earth and really ready to deliver a great golf swing.
