A huge cause of miss-struck shots among amateur golfers is a loss of posture through impact. Many golfers will tend to stand up through the hitting zone leading to both thin and fat shots. By doing this, the body will also lack rotation which reduces the amount of power into the back of the ball.
Retain your posture throughout the swing by using this drill in your practice. Position your backside on a bay divider. This will actively promote the turning of the hips and help retain your spine angle through impact. By achieving both of these checkpoints, you’ll get a much better strike on the golf ball.
On a health and safety note, don’t forget to check that there’s no one in the bay next to you that might be affected by this posture drill!
