  1. Golf Fitness tip of the week – Touch Your Toes For Consistency.
    Touch your toes – 5 degrees in posture change during swing. Can not touch your toes 18 degrees posture change during swing. Consistency in the swing is key – that’s why we have 14 clubs to use.
    This is just how simple you need to keep information for the general golfing public. Much more than this and they will not do it.

  2. Thank you for your comment, Kip. That change is with any and every club you can swing. If you start at 42 degrees the changes will be from there, with your five iron. If you start at 36 degrees with a drive the changes will be from that starting point, and if you start with a sand wedge with 47 degrees of bend, the changes will be from that starting point. It is not club dependent, rather is a standard change with any club of any angle or length that could be in your bag.

    I hope that clarifies the situation….yes consistency in the swing is the key, and our data indicates that no matter what club you hit, you will be less consistent if you cannot touch your toes.
