All About Tiger's Chin

Bet that got your attention, huh? Keely Levins at Golf Digest did an article about a swing key that shows up in several of Tiger's instruction pieces for the magazine. It's called The Body Part You Never Thought Of That Could Be Ruining Your Swing.

It's your chin. Tiger says you should keep your chin up all the way through your swing.

I'll let you read the article for the details -- it's relatively short -- but here are the four bad effects Tiger says burying your chin in your chest at setup can cause:
  • It restricts your shoulder turn during the backswing.
  • It inhibits your weight shift during the downswing.
  • It affects your spine angle during the downswing.
  • It messes up your balance all the way through your swing.
Learning to keep your chin up, as Tiger does in the photo above, is a very simple thing you can practice almost anywhere. But don't underestimate its importance. It's usually the simplest things that make golf harder than it needs to be... and it doesn't take a genius to improve his or her posture.
