Golf tip of the week: Rotate the shoulders around the spine | News, Sports, Jobs

Stay inside the vertical lines, the shoulders control the swing plane axis.
The spine angel must maintain the same angle until impact. The shoulders should rotate around the spine without allowing the spine to move left or right. The back should be bent at the waist to approximately forty degrees.
If the spine angle moves side to side, the club will not return to the ball correctly at impact.
Allow the shoulders to turn more level than under; the left shoulder should turn upward on the backswing, the right shoulder for the left-hand golfer.
A good thought is to imagine you are standing in a barrel and turning without touching the sides.
Don’t forget to enjoy this great game called golf.
