Corey Badger on Squaring Your Shoulders (Video)

Yeah, I know the GC video says "change driver position for a variety of shots." But it's really a quick way to make sure your shoulders are aimed properly at address. And Corey says it's an alignment tip in the video!



This idea of aiming your sternum -- or breastbone, if you prefer -- at the back of your driver to make sure you don't turn your shoulders too far toward the target is pretty slick. It seems to me that it might also help if you close your shoulders too much at address.

And it might allow you to play a stinger as well. With the ball teed up a bit more inside your lead foot, your sternum would be aimed back more toward the center of your stance. That should help you hit more down on the ball, which is what you do with a stinger.

Will this work with, say, your irons? Probably not off the tee, especially since the ball is so far forward in your stance. It's the thickness of the driver head that lets this tip work.

However, I could see where this might work with irons off the turf when the ball is back in your stance. If you have a problem with opening your shoulders too much at address, it might be worth a try.

I really do like simple tips like this. It's very easy to tell if you're aimed properly with this tip because you have a very specific spot to aim at -- in this case, it's the very back of your driver, which will mean your sternum is aimed about three or four inches behind the ball.
