Swing Tips, Loss of Posture
Loss of Posture is defined as any significant alteration from your body's original set up angles during your golf swing. This loss of posture can affect all aspects of the golf swing including timing, balance and rhythm.
Losing your spine angle or altering your posture usually causes two typical miss hits, the block to the right and a hook to the left. And as most competitive players know, having two misses, one to the right and one to the left, can be disastrous in tournament play.
The easiest way to diagnose a loss of posture is to use the triple posture line. Starting in the set up or address position from the Down the Line View, draw a line from the center of your head to the center to the center of your waist.
Next, draw a line from the center of your waist to the center of your knee. Finally, draw a third line from the center of your knee to the center of your ankle. These three lines make up the triple posture line. Now, advance the video to impact or just beyond.
The majority of PGA Tour players will maintain their posture angles during the entire golf swing and there will be minimal movement from those original triple posture lines.
If you are moving off these lines during your golf swing then you have Loss of Posture. This great article can be viewed alomg with many other great articles at www.tpi.com the fantastic Titleist Performance Institute website You may like to view Nike Golf Equipment
