The Importance of Good Golf Posture

by | Jun 26, 2013 | Blog, Golfing Injuries

Good posture has been described as one of the most important aspects of the address/set-up position in the golf swing.

Jack Nicklaus has said:

“If you set up correctly there is a good chance you will hit a reasonable shot.  If set-up is poor, you will hit a lousy shot even if you made the best swing in the world.”

A good set-up will help with the following:

–      Balance throughout the swing with correct posture and foot placement.

–      A good set-up helps you create power and control direction.

–      With practice in the correct set-up, players can pre-set the optimal impact position.

Your golf professional will teach the correct spine angles, ball position, foot placement and body alignment – so book in for a lesson!

There are many reasons for loss of good posture:

–      general stiffness of muscles and joints.

–      poor core stability.

–      lack of flexibility.

Assessment and treatment in the clinic using manual therapy techniques and specific exercise programmes will greatly reduce these problems.
