Golf Tip – Backswing

September 2, 2015 Posted by Matt

backswingShould you lift your left heel on the backswing?  There is often debate as to whether the left heel should be lifted in the backswing, and there are good arguments on both sides.  Jack Nicklaus lifted his heel, while Tiger Woods keeps it in place at the top of this swing.  Lifting your heel will give you power from a longer arc in your swing, while keeping the heel on the ground lets you go wider and create more coil in your shoulders.  You may try both to see what works for you.  You might ask your pro to advise you if you are thinking of making a change on way or the other.
