Try the 'Stack and Tilt" method with new book
The Stack and Tilt swing did for a time take the PGA Tour by storm. Players like Aaron Baddeley, Dean Wilson, Mike Weir and Steve Elkington switched to the method popularized by golf instructors Michael Bennett and Andy Plummer and saw results.
Bennett’s and Plummer’s book – The Stack and Tilt Swing: The Definitive Guide to the Swing that is Remaking Golf – was released late last year during a time when some experts wondered if the swing theory has staying power. Judge for yourself by checking out the hardcover book published by Gotham.
If you’ve been struggling with the modern golf swing, maybe it’s time to try something different.
Most of the ideas are not new to the swing – the straightening of the right leg on the backswing, the swinging of the hands on an inward path, the weight distribution on the front of the body.
What is new is that the Stack and Tilt keeps the body centered over the ball during the backswing. The three key moves are to 1, Turn the left shoulder down. 2, To tilt the spine to the left and 3, Push the hips through impact.
With more than 200 color photos, the book might not solve all your bogey woes. But if you are lost, searching for some salvation on the course, maybe reading the book will give you something worth holding onto, whether it is an entire swing change or just some ideas to consider.
