Posture in Setup

Is the degree of spine tilt the same for all clubs in the bag?

Yes most definitely. When I do a video golf swing analysis I measure the degree of spine tilt on my students and the correct spine tilt is between 28 and 32 degrees.

This is measured from a down the line view of the players address position, taking a vertical line from the ground and through the spine.

If you want yours measured send me a photo, preferably with a still digital camera.

Great question, thanks for the submission.

Your detailed "back to the basics" training has enabled me to improve dramatically in the last week. Just goes to show you how important grip, posture, and stance really are! I encourage anyone and everyone to have a read! Thanks. -Todd

I've been spreading news of your website around to some good friends of mine who shoot in the 80s and they too have found it very helpful. Thanks again! Scott Steele, Kansas City, MO


Just wanted you to know that I copied your grip and setup. Along with hinging the wrists as you instruct, I am striking the ball so much better. Nice and crisp coming off the club. Just wanted to thank you....big difference. Mark, Maryville TN

I will be spending more time here, but just on a quick read through I found it to be the clearest articulation of the different elements of golf I've read. The site works well.I like the mix of writing / pictures / video.
