Swing Characteristic #7: C-POSTURE
C-Posture is used to describe a posture that occurs when your shoulders are slumped forward at address and you have a definitive roundedness to your thoracic spine.
Causes of C-Posture:
- Limited thoracic spine extension.
- Upper Crossed Syndrome – muscle imbalances including tight pecs, lats, upper traps, and levator scap and weakness in the mid-scapular muscles, serratus anterior, lower traps, and deep neck flexors.
- Instability in the core muscles causing poor posture and the slouched forward position at address.
- Lack of proper instruction – not understanding the correct setup and posture.
- Lack of pelvic tilt causing the upper body to bend to address the ball
- Clubs that are too short.
- Grip that is too much in the fingers of both hands.
