How Your Posture Effects Your Bunker Play

By Mark Holland - Posted on 18 August 2008

Your body posture is affected by the following; 

  • Spine angle or bend (left and right)
  • Spine tilt (forward and back)
  • Centre of gravity (high, low, left and right)
  • Balance (left, right, forward and back)
  • Dynamic posture control, control of your spine when swinging (lifting and dropping)
  • Joint and body segment alignment (balance)

Posture in the golf swing for effective bunker play

The above are critical for managing the rotation and weight shift of the body when swinging.  They also have a subsequent chain reaction effect on the timing and sequencing of the motion which will produce your impact alignments and ultimately your ball flight.
