“Theories differ as to why flamingos stand on one leg. The correct reason, as neuromechanists have recently discovered, is that flamingos are more stable on one leg than they are on two—they’re able to passively support themselves on a single leg with almost zero muscle activity," writes Luke Kerr-Dineen in discussion with Top 100 Teacher Micheal Hunt.

Perfect for putting
Luke adds, “The point of this zoological discussion is that a flamingo stance may be the perfect fix for your putting, especially if you sense that you have too much body motion in your stroke. Then adds, “It won’t be easy at first, but once you get the hang of it, what you’ll find is that your body weight will be forced to centralize and stabilize, because there’s no where else for it to go. With two feet on the ground, your weight can shift from side-to-side without you even knowing.”
