Keeping your spine angle through the shot is really important. When you watch great players, at impact they still are able to maintain a good spine angle while those of us who struggle tend to lose those angles through impact.

Using “the way out front” drill — and swinging with smooth tempo — put the ball well ahead of where you normally would have it in your stance, which forces you to maintain that good spine angle down and through impact. Feeling that sensation, when you move the ball back to its normal position in your stance, you’ll have a better feeling of keeping that good spine angle.
