The backswing sets up the correct position to start the downswing!

Today is  Technical Thursdays!  In our Video Blog, we talk about the backswing.   If your backswing gets you into the wrong position, no matter what you do on the downswing, it will be a series of compensations to try and get the clubhead back on track!  I will give you a simple drill to help you understand exactly how to get your swing started in the right direction!

Take a golf club and put the butt nd on your sternum.  Your hands are all the way down on the stell.  You are in your normal address position. Start the backswing keeping the butt end of the club on the sternum.  You will instantly feel that the backswing starts with the chest and not the hands or arms. If you start with the hands, the butt end of the club will move and get caught up in your shirt. Do this several times to understand this move fully.  You can do it in your living room at home!
