Golfers struggling to improve their performance on the course must typically focus on the fundamentals to get to a more consistent level of play. Often one of the most overlooked areas of play is the postural address or setup position of the swing. Most people are aware of the importance of their setup routine; however, many overlook the less addressed area of posture.
Proper posture and foot placement allows you to maintain your balance throughout the swing. Balance throughout the swing allows you to hit the ball squarely in the center of the clubface. Also proper body alignment can help to create a setup that leads to control. Postural alignment is an integral part of the quality of your golf swing.
Good postural alignment helps you create power and control the direction of the shot. Key pre-swing elements such as ball position and body alignment create the conditions that lead to control. The body angles that you create at address directly influence the path and angle on which you swing the club. They influence the body positions and movements; thus your setup directly affects all elements of the swing.
