David Leadbetter's Perfect Posture Drill

Published 06/04/2010 08:35:31

David Leadbetter is one of the best and most famous golf coaches in the world. He rose to fame helping Nick Faldo win a hatful of majors back in the 80s and 90s and he's still coming out with great tips for golfers of all skill levels.

This video is aimed at intermediate to advanced golfers.


The Tip

In this video David talks about the importance of good posture for a smooth golf swing

  • Get your back straight
  • Straight back helps shoulder rotation
  • Maintain your angles through the swing - with your spine as the pivot point
  • David then discusses the drill whereby you place the golf club behind your back
  • Curving your lower back is extremely detrimental to a good golf swing
  • Perform this drill periodically to make sure you're in the right position to set up to the ball correctly every time
