Correct Spine Angle In Golf

Having the Correct Spine Angle In Golf is vital. The aim is to start with a slight tilt of the spine away from the target at address, then to maintain this same degree of spine tilt at the top of the backswing and then to increase this degree of tilt on impact. Almost 90% of first timers that come to me will not be setting up, maintaining or increasing their spine angles which causes them massive inconsistencies in their game.

Spine angle in the Golf swing

If you don’t maintain your spine angle during the backswing this will give you some huge problems, the main one being a huge power loss as you will have to cast the club on the downswing to shallow out the dynamics of the swing as the tilt to the left would have made your swing very steep. It will also be impossible to get the correct body movement on the through swing if you don’t have the correct spine angle at the top of your swing.
