Rounded Back at Address will limit your Distance

I've seen lots of amateurs with rounded back at address. From this position, they are not going to hit the ball very far.

You will be able to turn more on the backswing if you have the straight back.

Let's experiment.

1. Stand up with your back rounded
2. Now, turn to the right
3. Next, stand up with straight back
4. Turn to the right

I think you noticed the difference. If your back is rounded, it limits your turn on the backswing and the downswing causing you to lose power during the swing.

Most golfers have rounded back because they bend from their waist. You are going to have to bend from the hips instead.

The correct posture will give you more room for your arms to swing freely and let you turn more on the backswing.

You will never see a good player with a rounded back at address.
