Recreational golfers who constantly struggle to fix their swing problems would do well to fix their posture first. Rounding the back, flexing the knees too much and tucking the head down to see
the ball are common setup faults that can lead to a poor swing. If your posture isn’t right, you’ll be forced to swing with mostly your arms and hands, creating very little shoulder turn.
hollow back or S - Posture
round back or C - Posture
If this sounds like you, here’s a drill you can try within the confines of your own home. Stand in front of a full-length mirror and bend from your hip socket so that your upper body tilts
forward approximately 45 degrees. Notice that your head is in line with your spine and isn’t tucked downward. Next, release your knees slightly. A problem most golfers have is too much knee flex
and not enough bend from the hips. Finally, let gravity drop your arms and club to the ground (they’ll naturally hang straight down if you’ve achieved the correct posture). This improved position
will enable you to make a more complete shoulder turn without a lot of arm and hand action.
Try to practice a couple of weeks during your off season time to be sure enjoying your golf rounds a lot more in spring.
