Posture is Power in Golf!

Posture is more than just standing up straight! Postural stability provides a consistent swing plane. Posture means power production in golf!
Unfortunately, your body slowly adapts to poor posture, causing muscles to weaken and become imbalanced. A few simple exercises, done consistently, can improve and maintain good posture. The result of better posture is more swing power!

Bad posture can produce tendonitis, muscle & joint sprains by placing your muscles at a bio-mechanical disadvantage.

Here’s what posture does for your golf game:

  • Give you control to place shot closer to the target
  • Improves your coordination
  • Gives better balance
  • Crucial for eye to muscle communication

Posture is maintaining the spine angle. It’s important for repetitive performance such as the golf swing. Because the golf swing is not a dual sided motion, posture imbalances can quickly escalate. The repetitive nature of the swing lends itself to injury prone.

Regular exercise can reduce injuries such as back pain, hip pain and shoulder aches. Golf exercise can improve power, distance and control of your golf swing.

Your postural muscles include your upper back, mid back, hamstrings and glutes. Begin with a routine to stretch these muscle groups and strengthen them.
