  • Scapular instability.
  • 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.
