Could how you sit affect your golf game???
Sit Up Tall, Prevent Detraining
The way you are sitting right now is affecting your golf game just as much as your grip.

Don’t waste your hard work in the gym and on the range by sitting with poor posture. Poor posture is a physical limitation and can directly affect your golf swing.
To help counteract these issues, find a neutral pelvis position in your sitting posture. To do so, follow these steps:
Tilt your pelvis all the way back
Tilt your pelvis all the way forward
Tilt your pelvis half-way back to neutral pelvis position
This position will allow you to have a chance to get your lumbar spine (low back), thoracic spine (mid-back), shoulders, neck and head in a proper position. There are many posture aids available to achieve this position, but using your core muscles is the ideal way to accomplish this.
You can influence your game sitting at work, just as much as you can in the gym. Don’t counteract all your hard work by detraining your body into a poor posture.
