I've been Playing Golf for: 10 Years
My current handicap index or average score is: 85
My typical ball flight is: Mid height, left of center
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: High right
Looking at the front view, I see that my left arm bends a lot during the last part of the backswing. Then, when I start down, that left arm forcibly straightens and the force of that straightening motion throws the clubhead away from my body, which destroys the wrist cock. The club head then releases too soon and I have to stand up to get it to the ball.
Would I be better off just learning to stop the backswing when my lead shoulder touches my chin? I've tried in the past to stop the left arm from breaking so much, but at this time, it's really unconscious. Should learning to limit the back swing be a priority for the off season?
