Many bad shots are a result of how a golfer takes the club away from the ball at the start of the backswing. Although compensations can be made in the swing to produce a good shot, it is more difficult to create a high level of consistency with a bad backswing.

Making a simple move away from the ball can help increase your level of consistency and ability to find target more often. In this video, I give you some key things to look out for to help you improve your backswing.

    I love the depiction of the proper arm swing and the proper club path, but your description of the leg action seems quite foreign. Why must he trail leg straighten? Not to say that plenty of great players haven’t straightened their back leg, but is really a necessity? Wouldn’t that be based more upon a players flexibility and/or ability to load the back leg/glute and not so much a hard rule? Although I’ve heard that the backswing is not a beauty contest & it’s the downswing that matters, I am a firm believer that the backswing is a function contest, and the more that occurs going back means the more must happen coming down to offset that action. Simple backswing=simple downswing as I see it, great job describing the vertical movement of the club/arms going back, along with the plane!

      Golfers with slightly bowed out knees will straighten the back leg in the golf swing…. and those with knock knees will flex too much. You can easily spot the differences.

    The takeaway movement of the backswing is fully conscious….. and that’s when that little voice in the head of recreational golfers says: “I don’t know what I’m doing and I don’t know if I can hit the ball!!”…… and only “4 points to remember”….!!!

      You can’t ‘think’ your way through the golf swing and trying to remember all the golf tips. And yet that’s how most recreational golfers believe it’s done. No massive practice just remember the tips.
      Meanwhile professional golfers will practice a small swing change for 3 months before they feel secure with the swing change.
