Today's topic is the master setup position. It doesn't stem from a question sent in to the website, but from my own observations at some of our recent PPGS Performance Golf Schools.
I really love the format of these schools because the ratio of student to instructor is so small (4:1). It allows me and our other certified instructors ample time with each student to identify what needs work. Instead of working in generalities to a large group, I'm able to work on specifics individually!

The master setup position is one issue that keeps popping up during these schools, which is why I wanted to discuss and review it today. Where we position our shoulders is so important, because it will determine the way we're able to swing our arms. If you hunch your shoulders too much, you won't be able to properly lift the club. Instead, you need to relax your shoulders. In the PPGS, your right shoulder (for a right handed golfer) will slump down more than your left, but that doesn't mean your left shoulder should get pushed up to the point where you're incapable of making a good lift. They both need to be relaxed, but your right will be lower than the left if you're in the correct spot.
You'd be surprised how much your setup really does affect your swing. Take a look at today's video and you should come away with a strong understanding of the PPGS master setup position.
