Loss of posture
Loss of posture is one of the bigger issues with player as over 64 percent have a loss of posture in their golf swing. It is any significant alteration from the body’s original set-up angles during the golf swing. The typical mishits are the block to the right and a hook to the left for right-handed golfers. This puts the player in a position to use their hands to square the clubface. This becomes a timing-driven swing that can be inconsistent. To improve this issue, take a swing noodle, place a clubshaft through it and push it into the ground. Take your address position with the swing noodle on your tail bone. Make some full swings and work on keeping the noodle on your tail bone. Now hit some balls doing the same. With practice you will see better results.
