Steve Bishop, a blog reader and fellow instructor reminded me about this with my own swing.
Bending over enough at the waist is an extremely underrated setup fundamental. Unlike many golf swing fundamentals, you almost can’t do it too much. It sets your hands lower at address making it less likely you will whip it too far inside with your arms, it allows your arms and hands to hang down relaxed out of your shoulders, it makes it easier to turn your shoulders 90* to your spine and many, many other benefits.
I always instill this in my students and sometimes I forget it myself. Thanks Steve for reminding me of the importance of this.
