Weekly golf tip with Brad Redding

Flat shoulder turn

Flat shoulder turn happens sometimes to the player who has the wrong perception of how the shoulders should move during the backswing. To create a better understanding of how the shoulders turn, take an alignment rod and connect it to your shoulders using rubber bands. Get into a good set-up. Turn your shoulders where the left end of the alignment rod points down to the ground. It should point the alignment rod in a zone that runs from anywhere outside the golf ball to inside 45 inches from the ball.
