Posture Makes Perfect
By: Rob Doster | 10/12/10, 12:15 PM EDT
With proper setup, you bend in two places — at the knees and at the hips. Using your driver, you can get a feel for the amount of bend you need at the waist. Place the clubhead next to your chin, as I’m doing in the photos. Bend your knees slightly, finding the balls of your feet, as you would do in building your stance.
Next, bend at the waist until you feel the heel of the club pass your heels. That tells you the amount of bend you need.
Do this, and you’ll be balanced, centered and ready to hit a golf shot.
