Golfers of all levels can benefit from the proper impact position in their golf swing. One major component of this is the spine angle. Kip Puterbaugh, the owner and director of instruction at the Aviara Golf Academy at the Park Hyatt in Carlsbad, California, shares a drill to help golfers maintain their spine angle through the golf swing.
What to Look For
Puterbaugh points to the still photos of Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel as examples of the proper impact position. He notes that the right arm should be below the left at impact and the hips should be roughly 35 to 40 degrees turned out of the way.
