Maintain your spine angle

Golf Tips
By Cameron Rankin
Head Professional, Sand Hills Golf Resort

Your spine angle should remain consistent during your backswing and at the impact position. Any loss of body height on the backswing or standing up at impact or the opposite changes in height will cause inconsistent striking of the ball.
To improve consistency, work on improving your posture position. Think of your spine being as straight as possible, but on an angle over the ball, with your arms hanging directly down from your shoulders. Weight pressure should be felt in the middle of your feet.
During your swing the hips and shoulders should turn perpendicular to the spine angle.
