Is Your Backswing The Correct Length?

By | on February 21, 2021 | 6 Comments |

In this tip I am talking about what the correct backswing length should be. I see so many golfers with long backswings and too short of backswings. But why is the backswing only supposed to be a certain length? What are the problems with having the incorrect length of swing? Check out your backswing length and then realize why it does or does not work for you.

    Hi Paul,

    Nice tip…. as a “more experienced” golfer I have limited thoracic motion… working on that.
    I would guess you should just go back as far as it takes to coil with lead arm relatively short.
    I tried to find video but was unable.
    Thanks, Don Forrester Sacramento, CA

    I meant keeping the lead arm relatively straight not short… senior moment.
    What do you think?
