The Backswing

How To Create The Proper Backswing


Creating a large swing arc is very important in the backswing. You can see how the golfer’s hands extend away from his body creating width (Red Shaded Area) . It’s important to make sure when you create width and a bigger swing arc that you maintain 2 important pieces:

  1. Don’t lose the connection between the body and arms when the hands and club extend away on the backswing (Note the tricep and lat muscle maintain connection throughout the backswing Orange Shaded Circle).
  2. Keep your left arm as straight as possible even on the top of the backswing (Green Line).
