How do you know if your backswing is too long or too short?

Because we as humans are not wired to know exactly where our body parts are, we need to rely on the task at hand to determine if the backswing is adequate enough for us to complete this task. As far as feel of the task is concerned, we want to be able to whip the club through to the target with ease and velocity, so the backswing needs to be able to allow you to not only be able to whip the club nicely, but also to sling the club in the direction you want to start the ball. So if you do not finish the backswing, you can’t whip the club and you will be left with trying to push and shove your way around the golf course and get exhausted and sore.

There is a much better way, and I discuss it in the video.

    Wow, using the start of the takeaway to decide draw or fade instead of open/close stance or club face. Got to try that.
    Discovered Shawn a few months ago and started swinging more freely and with plenty of hip rotation. Tried the “modern swing” trying to create torque between upper and lower bidy but started to slice again and lost distance but gained back pain. But the “out if the way…, out of the way…” pendulum like swing he often shows has done me a lot of good.
