In this article you will see Dr. Wright demonstrating how to set posture using a weight in the middle of the chest. This article also relates to the Power or Carrying Angle. When a weight is placed in the center of the chest and you assume your posture, you naturally set the Power Angle for that Core Region in the thighs.
You will notice in this article that Dr. Wright has assumed a Lower Core setup. At this point in the research there had not been a differentiation in the Upper, Middle and Lower Core. The Lower Core fundamentals were being taught to all students in Dr. Wright’s lessons and Golf Schools in 2011.
To this day Dr. Wright refers to the fact that golf professionals teach what they do, not what is natural to the student. Dr. Wright is a Lower Core Player. The research to date (April, 2020) shows that about 10% of the male population is Lower Core and 66% are Upper Core. The 24% of Middle Core players are the PGA tour Tournament winners much of the time. Those statistics are for men.
The majority of women players are Lower and Middle Core Players. When Dr. Wright did training in South Korea for the KLPGA, he measured over 100 women, none of whom were Upper Core. Don’t assume you are any Core Region until you determine your stance widths. Once you determine your stance widths, your playing core region is determined by your external shoulder rotation, not your region of maximum strength. If your trail arm delivery doesn’t match your Core Region stance width, you will need to move to a Stance Width where your trail arm delivery matches.
Subsequent to this article, Dr. Wright went back to the research lab for the next several years. He discovered the 9 Core Regions as a Fibonacci Sequence, the Wright Balance® Optimization and Express exercises, The Wright Balance® Optimization Moves for full swing and putter and much more.
