You're standing on the tee-box, driver in hand, ready to hit the best shot of your life, all while hoping to find your ball again afterwards. Sound familiar?
For most golfers, being ready to execute the perfect shot doesn't always mean they're actually able to. But I know for a fact that all golfers, no matter what level they're at, are ready to improve their golf swing and overall game.
When trying to improve their swing, players usually lean on things like buying new clubs, spending hours at the driving range, and taking innumerable lessons from an instructor. One major thing you aren't addressing will put an end to all that. Focusing on this one thing will not only banish your pre-swing worries, it will eliminate the need for new clubs and cut down on your driving range time. If it sounds too good to be true, it isn't. That missing link, that one thing, is your posture.
You've probably heard about golf posture before, but that's not necessarily what I'm talking about. When I talk about "posture," I mean alignment and function and their direct impact on performance.
My belief is that the majority of limitations are posture-based. Your posture is off, and either your skills and abilities have diminished or you're in pain—or both.
Think about this: If you look in the mirror and notice that your right hip is higher than your left hip, we can assume that your right and left hips aren't doing things equally on both sides. With a golf club in your hands, you are probably unable to load your right hip properly in your backswing. As a result, you compensate.
You're wasting valuable time, energy and money if you just try to adjust your swing, hit more balls or buy the latest and greatest set of clubs. You need to stop ignoring your right hip elevation.
The following exercises will bring your body back into balance, erasing your physical limitations. Not only will you be able to do the things that you couldn't physically do before, but golf will become fun again when your body realizes that it can give you the golf-swing motion efficiently without hurting.

It's time to start living and golfing pain-free!)
