Since the most important thing I am working on in my golf game currently is hitting accurate approach shots every time from 150 yards and in, I came across a tip (can't remember where I read it). The tip suggested that if accuracy and good contact are issues, to have a majority of your weight on your left leg at address and instead of having a weight transfer to "post up" on your left leg. While losing some distance it is supposed to allow for better accuracy and better ball striking.
I've been hitting balls the last few nights and it seems to work with the clubs that I am using this with (PW, 9i, 8i, and sometimes 7i). What I've found is that it seems easier to have a flat left wrist at impact by posting up. The ball contact definitely seems better/easier and accuracy seems to be improved. Since I do not swing that hard with these clubs anyway (I'm more concerned with precision with these clubs versus trying to look macho and muscle a 9 iron 160 yards even though it's not accurate!), it seems to be working. I do not put all of my weight on the left leg and am careful to make sure that I am maintaining the width of my backswing but as long as I do that it seems to be good.
While I do not struggle with reverse pivoting that much anymore, there was a time where I was doing this a lot and falling out of my golf shot. This post up move seems like it would be good for anyone that is struggling with their balance?
Thoughts on this? Anyone try this at all?
