Golf Tip – More Distance

September 24, 2015 Posted by Matt

More DistanceDoes a big backswing translate into more distance?  A common misconception among golfers is that a long backswing will help produce a longer drive.  Actually, if you go beyond parallel at the top of your swing, you have now placed the club in a position where you have to make a corrective move.  If the club dips at the top, you will have to lift it back up before you get it in a position to start down with the force of your turn and with gravity.  Stop your backswing when your shoulder jest under or just past your chin and your hands remain firm at the top.
