Proper Posture for an Athletic Golf Swing

From Jason Baile On June 03, 2022
"Nobody gets worse by setting up better."

This bit of golf wisdom comes courtesy of Titleist staff member Jason Baile and in this video, Jason and Lance Gill, the Director of Performance at
... Jupiter Hills Club, talk about the foundation of a good setup - athletic posture.

Proper posture allows your body to move athletically and powerfully while also minimizing your risk of injury. There's a direct correlation between good posture and solid ball-striking, so it makes sense to learn some basics about posture and to monitor your posture and setup throughout the season.

As Jason and Lance detail, there are basically two flawed postures that you want to avoid. "C" posture is characterized by excessive rounding in the upper back. It restricts your ability to rotate your upper body around your spine. Typically, you'll compensate by over-swinging with the arms and hands and your consistency will suffer.


"S" posture is characterized by excessive arching in the lower back. S Posture is a major contributor to lower back pain and injury. By activating your core muscles and getting your lower back in a flatter, more neutral orientation, you increase the range of motion in your hips. By activating the big muscles in your pelvis and core, you'll rotate more easily and take a substantial load off the vulnerable structure of your lower back.

Whether you're prone to C or S posture, go through Lance's drills to establish neutral posture in your spine. Your body and your golf swing will both benefit.
