Golf Tip: Working on Posture

Start the year off right and work on the basics such as your posture.  The picture on the left represents good posture with a flat spine angle.  The middle picture shows “C” posture, rounded shoulders and a rounded upper spine.  The right picture shows “S” posture, a distinct curvature in the lower spine.  Both “C” & “S” postures cause swing issues and pain in the lower back.  Get your shoulders back, bend from the waist with a slight bend in the knees and your arms hang below the shoulders.  The distance from the end of the club to your body is about a hand width.
