Good Golf Posture - Page 7

post #109 of 201
Thread Starter 

Just filmed this today, will prob add to the OP.  Starting the vid with straight back posture, sticking my gut in to get my head down and the curve in my back.  This feel might help some rather than saying, get your tailbone under you and tilt the neck down.  The head/eyes are tilted down because of the flexion of the cervical spine.  Again you do this by engaging your abs, almost like doing a crunch or if someone was doing to punch you in the stomach.

lol yeah neither one is good, too much bend at the hips.  I just don't get what these guys are seeing when they look at good players.

Regarding anterior/posterior tilt... Are you advocating actively "adding" a little posterior tilt to the pelvis at setup? Or simply to avoid adding too much anterior tilt?

Avoiding too much anterior.

And this saying under posture takes away lower body strength?

Which for many means adding some posterior, as Mike would agree. :)

 

To answer cipher, when you have too much anterior tilt, your hips can't turn (or are less likely to) turn freely.

In my experience the above is kind of rare to see, I see way more of this below, notice the arch in the lower back.  Yes can do too much of anything in golf ;-)

 

 

 

Some good examples
