Good posture is an absolute necessity for a killer golf swing. Without the correct golf¬†posture, you’ll lose a lot of power on your swing. Here are the basics you need to know:

  • Bend at the hips
  • Keep your back straight
  • Point your chest towards the ball
  • Push your bottom out
  • Keep a slight flex in your knees

Overall, this proper golf stance should be a little uncomfortable for you. Our instinct is to slump forward and push our pelvis to the front in a sitting position. Here’s a way you can test your golf posture:

  • Hold your club perpendicular to your stomach
  • Bring your shoulders back
  • Bend forward at the hips and flatten your back

This should bring the club to the ground and give you a good idea of your posture. Practice in front of a mirror or ask a friend to help you out. Get more tips from our PGA Master Professionals. Want to get started with a golf career? Take our Golf Career Assessment today!
