Fix Three Backswing Killers

Monday March 17th, 2008
THE PROBLEM

\nA bad backswing is often due to one of three things: a sway (you lose power), a reverse pivot (you slice or pull) or an unflexed right leg (you hit it thin).

\nTHE SOLUTION

\nA shaft without a head on it can help you correct all three faults. To determine which problem is affecting your backswing and then correct it, try these three drills.

\n

FAULT: REVERSE PIVOT

\n
\nPlace the shaft in the ground behind and between your legs, angled so that the handle of the shaft touches your inner right thigh. Now take your backswing. If your right leg pushes the shaft forward toward your front leg, you're reverse pivoting. Practice until you can turn without moving the shaft.

FAULT: SWAY

FAULT: STIFF RIGHT LEG
