This week we explore the proper tilt in Position #1 and a great little drill that helps us get there every time! Most golfers whether they are right handed or left handed, tilt towards the target in their set up position (position #1). If you are one of these people, an easy way to check yourself is to look in the mirror after you take your set up. If your shoulders look level to the ground, then you are leaning too much toward the target or front foot. Remember, our spine should point away from the target when we set up to the ball. This position allows us to simply lift our arms and club on the backswing with little to no rotation and lets us swing the club more vertical. Our head should be behind the ball and the amount depends on your ball position and the club that you are hitting.
The drill that I have learned to use to help me and my students get in the correct position is really simple! When you set up to hit your shot, simply lift your forward heel off the ground and this will tilt your upper body and head more to your back foot. From here, just place your heel back on the ground and leave your body in the same position. Now look in the mirror and you should see your head more behind the ball and your spine tilting away from the target.
This is a great drill that will help you learn the proper positioning in position #1. I hope this is helpful! Keep the faith and play to your potential!
