Find your Perfect Backswing!

This is a great drill to help you find "your" perfect backswing.  This drill will help you establish more width and will help you find the proper length of backswing.  Depending on your body build and flexibility, this drill will allow you to only go back as far as you comfortably can. 

One of the biggest issues I see is allowing the left arm to over bend on the backswing.  This is usually due to tightness in the shoulders and what happens is left arm bends to allow you to make a bigger backswing.  This over bending causes consistency issues!

I would rather see a golfer with a more compact backswing which provides more control, than an overly long backswing which is difficult to time.

Enjoy the video!
