Increase your forward spine tilt to make better contact with the ball

Are you having difficulty consistently making contact with the golf ball? For a right- handed golfer, start by testing your left-arm swing without a club. If your left arm can't swing 45 degrees before it hits your chest, then you are standing too upright and you will end up swinging the club too flat around your body. This will cause the club to come in too shallow to the ball creating thin and topped shots. Increasing your forward tilt so that your arm-swing is 45 degrees will help your left shoulder work down and under in the back-swing. This will help the shaft move in a more vertical plane as you turn back, therefore creating a steeper plane on the downswing which helps create better club turf contact.
