Indoor Training: Posture

From Justin Parsons On March 31, 2021
In Part 3 of his five-part indoor golf training series, Titleist staff member Justin Parsons shows how you can use a mirror to improve your golf posture. Posture in golf is important for two reasons – Good... posture allows your body to move freely and swing the club with speed and control, AND good posture can protect you against a wide variety of golf injuries.

Use a mirror and Justin's step-by-step drill to practice getting into good, athletic posture. Some keys to focus on:

1. A neutral spine angle – relatively flat from your lower back through the middle of your back, no excessive arching or rounding, flat angle through the neck, as well.

2. Weight evenly distributed across the center of your feet.

3. Arms relaxed and hanging naturally from your shoulders.

As Justin emphasizes, if you have any difficulty getting into this kind of neutral posture, you may have a physical limitation. You can often work around it, but your best bet is always to first seek out a qualified fitness professional who can administer a TPI physical screening. This screening will identify any physical limitations you may have and will guide you on a course to improve your strength, mobility and range of motion so that you can swing safely and more efficiently.
