Flat shoul­ders throw your swing off plane A steeper shoul­der turn im­proves power and ac­cu­racy

Golf World (UK) - - TIPS FROM THE TOUR -

If you ro­tate your shoul­ders on a plane that’s too flat the shaft will ap­pear more hor­i­zon­tal and point way out­side the ball at the top of your back­swing. This cre­ates a sit­u­a­tion where the arms are too wide out­side the line, the up­per body is pulled back away from the ball and you’ll prob­a­bly look a bit flat at the top of the swing. This all makes it very hard to swing the club on a neu­tral path. If you ro­tate your shoul­ders on the proper plane the shaft will stay per­pen­dic­u­lar to the spine an­gle you set at ad­dress and point at or just out­side the ball at the top of your back­swing. This cre­ates more ten­sion in the back­swing, en­cour­ages your up­per body to stay cen­tred and en­ables you to at­tack the ball on a neu­tral plane with a more de­scend­ing at­tack through im­pact.
