Golf Tips for Women With Large Breasts
Large breasts can be a major hindrance to fluid and correct golf swing. The mechanics of a proper golf swing require the upper arms to swing right in front of the chest and large breasts can get in the way of that upper arm motion. Players have two basic options to correct the issue, through attire or correction of the golf swing.
Wear Proper Attire
Purchase a good, comfortable sports bra to keep your breasts close to your chest, which can prevent them from hanging or otherwise protruding.
When you try one on, make all of the movements you normally would while playing golf and you feel comfortable with your swing.
1. Change How Your Arms Hang
Women golfers with large breasts may need to alter how they place their arms as they address the ball to swing. One tip is to tighten your shoulder blades to place your upper arms higher on your chest before you swing. Again, a comfortable, fluid swing that makes good contact is what you want to repeat.
2. Change Your Toe Position
You can change your foot position to eliminate the chance of your breasts getting in the way of your golf swing.
How? Turn your right toe out 30 degrees and drag the right heel away from the target line a few inches.
Why? Standing with your toe out 30 degrees and your right heel away from the target line clears space for your arms to move freely as you turn your hips during the backswing and then the approach to the ball.
Practice your swing on the driving range. Your goal is again to find a comfortable, fluid swing that you can repeat.
3. Swing Longer Clubs
A shorter golf club shaft makes you stand closer to the ball and causes your golf club to be more vertical.
If you use longer club shafts, you can stand farther away from the ball before you swing and your arms will extend outward from your body instead of straight up and down. This will lessen the chance of your breasts getting in the way of your swing.
