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.
