Posture while addressing the ball


Q: I constantly struggle with my posture at address. Would you offer any advice/tips on how tall/straight I should stand while addressing the ball?

A: A more upright two-plane swing with the arms swinging up and down in front of you features an erect posture at address that promotes and more level shoulder turn. Conversely a flatter, one-plane swing with the arms swinging more around you requires a more bent over posture that promotes a steeper shoulder turn. I would suggest that you adopt one or the other depending upon your swing style.
