Backswing help before this drives me insane!

3 posts in this topic

I started playing around a year and a half ago and I've recently dropped my handicap from 28 down to 20.4, however, I seem to be changing my backswing every shot and can't get a consistent feel to it causing the odd sweet connection to a lot of fats and thins.

I've recently had a lesson and I was working on the shoulder turn to try and stop my head from dipping down but I've now got a feeling of my arms lifting up and away from me slightly as opposed to going behind my shoulder on the takeaway/backswing which I see on tv all the time.  I've had a friend take a photo of a practice swing but it doesn't look like the club is way ahead of my body and is slightly more round my body.

Basically I'm wondering if the shoulder turn should give you the feeling that you're arms go slightly in front of you but they're really not on the takeaway and backswing?  I know this might not make sense but I'm trying to word it the easiest way.

I would suggest filming a My Swing video.  http://thesandtrap.com/f/4180/member-swings

Tough to say how it should feel for YOU when I don't know what the swing looks like.

These videos might help

More than a few of the people I golf with tend to be too mechanical or more so too contorted in their swing. If you put an old style weed cutter (steel shaft fat wood handle) in their hands and have them cut the tall weeds you would be amazed at their fluid swings. But put a golf club in their hand and it all goes haywire.
