I was hitting balls the other day and developed this idea. This will not work for all of you…but I think a some of you can benefit from this. Make the adjustment very slight. I exaggerated to illustrate the affect.
I call it the stack and tilt setup as it gives you some of the benefits of stack and tilt without implementing any conscious physical swing changes. However, it has no relation to the swing system, it’s just a label I used.
As I say in the video, I am not a huge fan of stack and tilt, but if you are having weight shift problems, balance problems, trouble hitting down on the ball, getting stuck, or some other issues, trying this slight adjustment in your setup might help.
This is not a bandaid.
There is nothing inherently incorrect, it is just not a classic setup and don’t do it too much as it will create a funny body angle.
The important part…you must maintain some spine tilt behind the ball. All you are doing is shifting more of your weight to your front foot at address by moving your left hip toward the target.
In addition to changing you attack angle if you are having some troubles, it will also help you bring your ball flight down for into the wind and out of the trees.
The best part is there is no need to make any changes in your swing.
