How do you begin your backswing? - Page 2

post #19 of 23
Your question is the holy grail for me!!!!! I've tried starting with my shoulders but I just can't do it. So im just trying to take the club back on the right plane just using my hands(im sure this is not workin either) I've tried everthing but can't master nothing!!!

Are we talking about the takeaway? If so, then I try to feel everything staying quiet except my left hand pushing the club back until I'm toe up with the club pointing down the target line. Once I'm in this position, I simply finish a full shoulder turn to the top.

I like to feel like my hips and knees don't move until the club head is about even with my trail foot, then I start to turn my hips while releasing flex in the trail knee to stay on an incline. Feels like all arms till A0.7 or so, video shows otherwise but that's the feeling.

I start my backswing with a slight forward press. It's not a conscious action, just something that I apparently do, it's right there on video.

My feel is to press down with my right foot.

A couple of little things to get my swing started. Once I'm set, I drop my hips and inch or 2 to get(keep) the flex in my knees, a SLIGHT forward press, then I think about (well, not really think- I just do) starting my left shoulder on track and 'pushing' the club away from the ball. It happens too quick to actually "think" about it, but the combination has been part of my swing for just about forever so it's a natural move in my case. Using the shoulder to start the swing keeps me from breaking my wrists too early and I can get to waist high before I do.
