Rotation & Posture
If you regularly read the instruction pages of Golf Monthly you’ll know that, as coaches, we often stress the importance of a good posture. Not only will a sound spine angle set at address and maintained through impact help you make consistently sweet strikes but it will also ensure you make a good turn. One of the big mistakes I see is standing too tall at address. As the main muscles in your legs and midriff are not engaged you’ll have a tendency to slide your hips as you take the club back. This ruins the resistance required between your upper and lower body at the top of the backswing.
