IS THE BACKSWING IMPORTANT?

There are a lot of people who think that the backswing is not important in the golf swing. They look at very special golfers who are exceptions to the rule, because of their immense talent, and use them as an example of why you don’t need a great backswing. Dan argues that a great backswing will make everything easier later on in your golf swing.

  1. Never a truer word .. I have the same issues as you described for Rory .. when I do get it right, the downswing and strike are so much better and easier it's unreal

  2. Definitely true, when I get my backswing down proper, it effects the transition and my downswing. Sometimes subtle things have drastic effects. It may be a bit different for different people and their mechanics but its definitely important.

  3. Couple of years ago I heard something on the Golf Channel. >90% of bad shots can be traced back to one of 3 basic faults: poor grip, poor setup, poor takeaway.
