You don't hit the ball with your backswing but it is very important to get it right. If you don't get the club in the right position at the top of the swing, you have no chance of hitting a good shot. Here you will learn 7 keys that will help you develop a backswing as smooth as silk:
Your swing should gather speed from a stationary beginning to when you contact the ball. Many poor players rush the club away from the ball and lose their rhythm. Remember to keep it slow and smooth.
There are three stages to your backswing: eight o’clock is the moveaway, nine o'clock is when your left arm is parallel to the ground and the final position is the top of the backswing. When you practice, stop at each point and check to make sure you position is correct.
The pen drill will make sure that your keep your head position level. Try this: Put a pen in your mouth and point it towards the ball. As you swing back, your head should rotate and so the pen should point away from the ball. You want your chin to rotate to allow your shoulders to turn. Make sure that your head level does not go up or down.
Let go of the club and cross your arms across your chest. Take your address position and turn behind the ball. Not having the club in your hands will force you to focus on the body turn and making sure you turn your shoulders and get behind the ball
Your right leg is a post that you swing around. It should be firm and you should feel some pressure in your right knee and thigh as you turn and screw your right food into the ground as it presses into the turf.
As you start your swing in a barrel, you will bump your right hip into the side of the barrel and then turn your hips inside the barrel on your backswing.
Get your left shoulder under your chin and turn your back to the target as you point your chest away from the target. These swing keys will ensure that you make a full turn.
