Professional Golf Tip of the Week: Perfecting your backswing
Many poor shots are caused in just the first foot or two of the backswing. People tend to overwork their hands and get the club into a poor position from which they cannot recover.
Do this simple drill to make sure you are starting out right. Set up with a club along your toe line. Swing the club half way back until your hands are over that club. The club you are holding should be in a straight line with the one along your toe line at this point — if it is not your small muscles have taken over. Practice getting the club/hands to this point in your backswing together, and your shots will be more solid.
Rosedale Director of Instruction and PGA Professional Steve Whidden will be offering a new professional golf tip each week. Be sure to check YourObserver.com for next week's tip.
