    Hi Paul. Can you shed some light on the difference between DRILL: Stop Taking It Inside or Outside Going Back and this video. Personally, I think the difference is that, one is half back the other is 3/4 back. Just need your confirmation. Tq

      Yes, this is the difference. You have zero depth of swing at halfway back. From there as you keep rotating you get the correct depth as I show in the depth of swing tip. just put the clubs on on the ground as I show as a guide.

    Paul, This is one way to answer my question of where the club should be at the top.
    Seems depth of swing will always get me to the right position.
    Am I right?

    Hi Paul,
    What are the consequences of too shallow of a backswing? Does it go left with some kind of spin? What about too deep of a backswing? Does it go to the right?

      Too shallow and you will blow it right, not take divots with irons and potentially drop kick driver.

      Deep backswing and you will most likely cross the line at the top,you may end up too flat below the shoulder line, pushes, push fades etc.
