TO swing the golf club well and consistently, you need to address the ball in the right way. It is that simple.
Good posture encourages the correct muscles to move the club away from the ball at a good angle. Unfortunately, some club golfers do not address the ball correctly and the main reason is because good posture is sometimes less than comfortable.
For those who get lazy, it is hard to execute a good takeaway and consistently swing the club correctly.
Use these thoughts to create a slightly less comfortable, but much more effective, set-up.
Lower into position
Settle into position by holding the club at hip height in front of you – bring the club to the ground, keeping your spine straight and your shoulders back. Your weight will move to your toes, so add a little knee flex to feel more balanced, weight under foot arches.
A shaft check
You can check your position by placing the club along your back. A good straight spine has the shaft in contact with both top and bottom of the back.
Oust the slouch
A more “comfortable” position has the shoulders forward, the hands too close to the body, the knees too flexed and the back hunched. This promotes poor motion.
