When it comes to breaking down the golf swing, I will admit that the concept of 'watching paint dry' just might be more fun
That said it is necessary if you expect to be able to swing the club more effectively, have more fun playing the game and lower your scores.
I often quote the saying given to me by a friend that sums up my feeling about the set up and the golf swing; "If you choose a path with no obstacles, it generally doesn't lead anywhere."
The most integral part of the SET UP is the SPINE
It is my firm belief if you can achieve a good spine angle, the rest of the pieces of the set up will come more naturally if you allow it.
When it comes to the swing, your spine impacts literally every part of your set up and swing from your grip, stance, weight distribution and alignment, to your ability to transfer your weight effectively through the swing. It also can enable you to achieve maximum club head speed. The Drive Shaft, as I call the spine is the one part of the set up you need to get correct as far as physically possible.
