Axis tilt to transition down with power and consistency

Axistilt1

The Spine at address has both a forward bend and tilt away from the target. The forward bend rotates on the same angle during the back swing. There can be a slight increase downward.  Midway back the spine increases its tilting axis away from the target approximately 2 degrees to allow the rotation of body pivot to center on the right hip. However as the arms wind up the vertical pressure causes the spine angle to return to its original tilt at the start.

During the downswing when your hands hit the low point and the shaft is both horizontal to the ground and parallel to the target line the axis (SPINE) tilt has increased up to 5 degrees away from the target. The forward tilt is also becoming more vertical into impact. During impact the forward tilt starts to rise up to create room for the arms and club to swing down. The axis tilt continues to increase back and away into the follow through when the spine finally does straighten up as the weight shifts to the left foot. The Spine still has a slight tilt toward the ground
