In golf, having a good posture can make a big difference as to how well you can play. In almost every sport you will hear the importance of having an athletic stance. Golf is no different.
What a lot of players do while setting up is bend their knees and squat down as if they were taking a seat in a chair. Setting up like this will make it very difficult to hit a good shot.
Here is something you can try to get in a more athletic position while golfing:
* Start by using no club for this drill, and start off by standing tall. Grab your belt above your zipper with both hands. Then start to push your belt downward into your hip socket and lean forward. Once you feel the muscles in your leg engage you stop. At this point you should feel as though your feet are gripping the ground solidly, and even if a 60 mph wind were to blow though you would be okay.
While in this position, let go of your belt and let your arms hang. This is the perfect posture for golf, and the one you are going after.
Work on this drill a few times until you feel comfortable with it. It will train you to understand that that a good golf stance will come from your hips tilting forward, not from the bending of your knees and waste.
This simple drill can help you achieve a better and more athletic posture on the course. If you can get in a position to put a good swing on the ball, it will drastically increase your chances of doing just that.
