Good Golf Posture - Page 12

post #199 of 214

Thanks i will try that drill.  Ok so i uploaded two screenshots from my swingvideo last night. Is this about right?

 

To me it feels like im pushing down the shaft to the ground.

 

 

 

 

And this is i think how i used to stand. With the arms pointing away from me more, and so the club was more on the same line as my arms were(if that makes sense).

Looks pretty good, just add a little more knee flex.

Does club length have anything to do with posture? If say a club is a 1/2" over length or under length. Would that affect how much you bend or straighten up? Do you just adapt rightly or wrongly to club length?

It won't affect it that much, just think about how your posture changes from swinging a driver versus swinging a wedge.

I wanted to bring this back up for a couple reasons.

 

I noticed that a fade turned into a slice in my past few rounds and after doing a quick video in my backyard, I found my butt was sticking out further and my back was curved toward the ball.  I am not sure if this is because of my many years as a hockey player and it feels normal or if it is just my natural back comfort.  I noticed I stand and sit like this as well (anterior). 

 

When I play tomorrow I am going to concentrate on a posterior stance and see what I notice.  It feels better with just some practice swings in the backyard and I feel like the swing is more coiled and not as rugged and inconsistent.  I think it also makes key 1 more achievable.

 

Am I way off here?

I would agree it makes Key #1 more achievable, couple reasons,

 

-  It's just easier to pivot and make a more "full" pivot if the lower back is flat-ish/upper back rounded than if you had an S curve in the lower back and a straight upper back.

- Pressure in the feet is more stable, guys that stick their butt out will tend to have the weight in their heels.

- More posterior feel helps get the eyes down

I can tell you that I'm feeling less pain and strain since I've been following this.

I noticed a big difference in the feel of the swing.  I am getting the feeling of coiling up during my swing.  I also noticed that I am able to keep my eyes down and I am beginning to think of how I am going to hit the ball rather than my swing takeaway but that is for a different thread

 

The bad thing was I think because of the change, I am not as upright as I should be which is causing me to stand up during the swing.  I am going to practice this evening on posture AND how my back is aligned.

Yes, probably means the tailbone is sticking out, check out the drills in the first post.

If Snead's pants weren't pulled up so high his lumbar spine wouldn't look so rounded.

Disagree but even if that was true what about everyone else?
