On the 11th Day. Think you want to be more consistent? Just remember, PGA Tour players are just as inconsistent as you are. Their scores have a much greater range than most people realize. Year after year I have clients that complain about scoring 90 one day and then 100 the next. Yet any given PGA Tour player has a scoring range of 63 to 84 year after year. And they make double digit numbers too. Check out Daly’s eleven swings at Bay Hill a few years ago:. http://www.scratch-golfer.com/DalyRollsan11atBayHill.htm
On the 12th Day. Twelve degrees forward applies to the amount of forward hip bend you create at set-up. This is by no means an absolute. There are all sorts of different postures among PGA Tour Players. 12 to 18 degrees is the average forward bend range among tour professionals tested at the Titleist Performance Institute. As a generalization, forward hip bend helps provide balance and stability in your golf swing. It is an athletic position that is similar to the positions other great athletes utilize. Baseball players, boxers, basketball players, football players and most any athlete has more success when bending at the hips rather than slouching at the waist.
