How To Groove A Perfect Backswing

Published

on

Have you ever asked yourself or a friend, how do I groove a perfect backswing? Watch the video above and read the article below to learn a simple and easy drill that has helped countless golfers build better backswings and hit the ball more solid.

HingeI often see golfers on the range who struggle with not hinging the golf club correctly, which leads to multiple issues in ball striking. This drill will give you a feel for the correct way to hinge the golf club in the backswing. The additional benefit is you will get the correct grip pressure to allow your wrists to hinge properly.

PivotNext is the pivot! If your back is to the target after you pivot, you are now in the correct position. Making your pivot more effective will make a dramatic difference on how far you hit the ball. You can watch yourself in a mirror for an improved pivot.

Push ArmsLast, pushing your arms out and away from your trail shoulder will give you the necessary and proper width in your backswing to produce power. Keeping this type of width in your backswing and downswing generates the proper angles to hit the ball far, high and straight. Pushing your arms out is a great tip on its own. I spend a fair amount of time on the lesson tee fixing unstructured arms.

Pump drill

BONUS TIP: The pump drill on the downswing helps you maintain properly hinged wrists.

    This is useless. I couldnt find out how to do a proper backswing until I found out that the club isnt suppose to be so far behind you as I thought it should. So better to focus on the first 30 % of the backswing and then just tell the student to go up up up.

    You appear to have a cupped left wrist at the top of your swing. Do you advocate a cupped or flat lead wrist. What about a bowed lead wrist? Thanks.

In this video, I use technology to help you better understand how you can pitch the ball like the pros.

When pitching, you may have learned to keep your weight on your lead foot throughout the shot. That’s not always the best approach. With BodiTrak, I show you how to move your weight correctly to achieve more consistent strikes.
