I really common fault I see is where golfers don’t turn their body enough in the backswing,
And lets face it, if the backswing is good, the rest can almost take care of itself…
I see a lot of ‘armie’ golf swings, with very little shoulder turn and too much bend in the left arm (pic 1) !!!!
This causes you to top the ball, hit the ground before the ball as well as struggle to get distance on your shots.
If you turn your shoulders on the backswing you will be able to keep your left arm straight (pic 2) which is crucial to a consistent strike and good power and distance.
Get the left shoulder under your chin on the backswing and keep your left arm straight (pic 2) and you are well on your way to the ‘perfect backswing’.
The three crucial things for a good backswing are:
1. The left wrist breaks early on the backswing
2. The left shoulder turns underneath the chin
3. The left arm stays straight
