SwingFix analysis: Maintain posture and spine angle

RSS

One thing you see from most great players as they approach impact is that they are moving down and through the golf shot while maintaining their spine angle and posture.

Most amateurs, however, tend to stand up and move into the ball as they approach impact, something referred to in golf circles as early extension, which makes a high level of consistency almost impossible to achieve.



Elgin has some good things going on in his swing, but as SwingFix instructor Karen Palacios-Jansen points out in this video analysis, he is standing up and sliding into the ball at impact, which is having an adverse affect on his ball-striking.

Early extension is among the biggest problems for many golfers, so enjoy this video analysis, as you can learn a lot about the golf swing and maybe uncover some of the issues that you’re having.
