The stack and tilt golf swing is a new golf swing that has become popular with quite a few high profile tour pros such as Aaron Baddeley and former US Masters winner Mike Weir.
It basically involves a much more centred golf swing than the common swing model that most tour pros use and is usually taught by teaching pros.
The stack and tilt golf swing can be an extremely effective solution for better players who are prone to hooking or pushing the ball, faults often associated with leaving the weight on the right side (for right-handed golfers) and then using excessive arm action in an effort to correct the swing. The stack and tilt golf swing can also help higher handicap golfers who have inconsistencies with their ball contact, i.e. if you tend to hit the ball fat or thin then due to the restriction of weight shift a more consistent ball strike can be achieved.
In effect one of the most attractive qualities of the stack and tilt golf swing is that the point where the club impacts the ground can be controlled much more easily than with a conventional swing. One note of caution is that trying to use the stack and tilt if you have a tendency to swing over the top can further compound the problem. That said overall, the stack & tilt is a steeper more compact swing than the norm and is ideal for crisp and consistent ball striking.
