PER­FECT POS­TURE

Golf Australia - - MASTERS 2018 -

Tiger’s pos­ture is ex­em­plary now. In the past, his set-up has of­ten lacked def­i­ni­tion and he has stood too up­right at ad­dress. Here he is lean­ing for­wards a lit­tle more from his hips and, as a re­sult, his up­per body is more in­clined. The an­gle from the top of his head to his tail­bone is neu­tral, he has the per­fect amount of knee flex and his weight is cen­tred on his feet.

Set weight be­tween heels and toes

In the past, Tiger has been guilty of set­ting a lit­tle too much weight to­wards his heels at ad­dress. He has rec­ti­fied this flaw here. His weight is now per­fectly balanced be­tween his heels and toes.

How to get into the cor­rect driver set-up

While you stand fur­ther from the ball with the driver, the butt is higher so you only need to lean slightly for­ward from your hips to take your grip. The ball is op­po­site your in­step and the shaft ver­ti­cal.

Why you need to hide your left thumb

The left thumb is the cor­ner­stone of your tech­nique. The tip should ex­tend no fur­ther than the first joint on the in­dex fin­ger. If it pro­trudes, it messes up your wrist hinge and can dam­age your pos­ture.
