Phil's 3 Quick Fixes

Fix 3: Shorter backswing, tighter coil
The most apparent change in Lefty's technique is his abbreviated backswing—well, abbreviated for him. A backswing that once went way past parallel now stops short of full. A lot of this has to do with Fix 1, squaring his stance to the target line and increasing the resistance of his left side. But also check out his left elbow—he's keeping it tucked close to his left side, even with a driver. The change hasn't compromised his coil (note the position of the logo on his shirt). In fact, it has tightened it and made it even more powerful.
