The “Stack and Tilt” golf swing is a comparatively new or modern swing that is rising in popularity. I have to admit that I have not tried it, because I spent many years trying to dominate the traditional swing until back surgery forced me to change to the simple golf swing by David Nevogt. But, if you are only starting or if you aren’t pleased with your conventional swing, then here is an outline of the Stack and Tilt golf swing so you can decide if you’d like to try it.
The Stack and Tilt Golf Swing
The Stack and Tilt golf swing was developed by swing instructors Andy Plummer and Mike Bennett after twenty years of analysis. The Stack & Tilt has been called a revolutionary golfing swing that keeps your weight stacked over the ball for pure contact, shot after shot. There are a number of golf swing gurus, though, who don’t recommend changing over to it.
More than twenty PGA pros are using the Stack and Tilt golf swing today, including the likes of Mike Weir and Aaron Baddeley. I suspect as more famous pros start using this swing, then more golfing instructors will be available to teach the Stack and Tilt. Until then, if you are curious about learning more, you may find one extremely comprehensive DVD set called the Stack and Tilt DVD series.
Here is what the Stack and Tilt golf swing can do for any golfer: The swing is really easy in nature and it makes for a more compact, clean swing, with less moving body parts and more consistency. It makes it simpler to make contact with the sweet spot of the club; this will allow you to perform a straighter, longer, and more consistent swing.
One of the major differences of the Stack and Tilt golf swing is that you address the ball with the weight mainly on your left foot (for right handed golfers). As you start your back swing, more weight is moved to your left foot – essentially there’s no weight transfer as the weight stays on the left foot during the golf swing. With the Stack and Tilt, the ball is positioned further to the middle of the stance – even with a driver. Also, the golfer’s hips will be in a more horizontal plane vs the conventional swing where the hips are tilted at an angle.
Top Of The Backswing
The backswing is a little bit shorter than the conventional swing. The middle of the shoulders and hips are in a straight line; this is where the “Stack” comes into it. In a conventional swing, the shoulders would be centered over the right hip. The “Tilt” refers to the angle of the backbone which is slightly angled towards the target.
The position of the head at impact will be over the ball, while traditionally, the head is behind the ball. The hips will continue to be on a level plane while the conventional golfer’s hips will have even more lean than at the address position.
