The Back Swing - It’s not about your arms!

Instead of thinking about my arms and swinging my club backwards, I try to think of my back swing as turning my back to the target. I’m not swinging the club up in the air, instead I’m just putting the club behind my back. I’m just winding that spring!

The back swing works from the top down. The back swing takeaway starts at the top with your arms and shoulder turn and works its way down to your hips and legs.

The back swing is all about coiling up your body and creating the muscle tension or torque needed to release a powerful downswing. More specifically, resistance is created between the greater turning of the upper body and shoulders and the lesser turning of the hips and lower body.

Now for my back swing rule number one. Don’t get in a hurry! A hurried back swing doesn’t make the downswing any faster. I think it may be just the opposite. You’ve got to remember that somewhere at the top of that back swing, you’ve got to change and go the exact opposite direction.

The speed of your back swing should be at a steady tempo, not real fast or real slow. The tendency is to go too fast.  Any time my golf swing begins to break down, my first correction is usually to slow down my back swing.

Relax! A good Golf Swing Setup is just not that tough! The good news is that you probably have a good athletic setup and all you need is to brush it up and be more relaxed.

You can can choose from three different Golf Grips. It’s your choice and you should choose the golf grip that feels right for you.

An athletic Golf Stance and setup is the launching pad for your swing. If you start with a bad stance, you’ll probably follow with a bad back swing, a bad downswing, and a bad follow through. Not to worry though. It’s just not that difficult!

Solid basic Golf Swing Steps or golf swing mechanics lead to an easy golf back swing, down swing, and follow through.

My best advice for your Golf Down Swing, with one exception, is to just let it happen! The down swing and follow through should be the very natural result of everything that precedes it.

Golf Swing Summary - I DO still remember the faulty golf swing mechanics and neurotic golf swing thoughts that less than memorable worm burner shot or that weak 70 yard shot off to the right. Here’s my list of golf swing killers.

What little I know about the golf swing is already on these pages, but I’ll be glad to provide whatever Swing Tip Support I can. I'm no expert, and everything I've done here is probably incorrect according every golf aficionado on the planet. But then again, if it works, do you really care?
