    Good info, thanks. Worth noting that spin and trajectory are also very much influenced by quality/type of lie and equipment. Pitching off a mat with range balls isn’t ideal.

    Good video with good advice on backsping generation.
    I particularly liked his comment to “bruise” the grass ahead of the ball and avoid taking a spin reducing divot. I do this but I call it “nipping” the ball off the turf.
    Of course, green conditions must be conducive to pulling the ball back with landing backspin.

    Can’t stand these videos on how to hit a draw, a fade, or create backspin and they never show the ball flight or roll. All that happens is the instructor saying “Yep, it did just what I wanted it to do”

Published

The downswing is one of the most misunderstood parts to the golf swing — especially the transition from the top of the backswing into the start of the downswing. Disaster is likely to strike if you make these moves in the wrong order using the wrong parts of the body.

This video will clear up some of the questions you may have about how you should be starting down and then continuing through impact and to the finish.
