Firstly, our underlying topic is ‘Spinal Configuration and Knee Flex’. Not much is more pertinent or important to making an effective golf strike! (see Clubface Aim [Open, Square & Closed], Clubhead Path [Inside-out Square & Outside-In] and Club Shaft Swing Plane’ [Above, On & Below … also Under, On and Over’].
When we discuss ‘Alignment’ (#5 of the 5 Set-Ups) we can be ‘Open, Square and Closed’. It might be thought that perfectly ‘Square’ is ideal. That is simply not always the human case in golf or just plain old life! We are ‘Imperfect Beings’ so our activities are not always perfect. There are many alternatives, variables and nuances. Ball Flight is always our biggest critic!
How might we get into a neutral or a different yet ideal ‘Take-Away and Strike’ configuration? We have a big range of ‘Spinal Inclination’ (forward & back) as well as ‘Spinal Tilt’ (aft Brace & fore Target)(see ‘Out Of Plumb Conditions’).
