Obvious flaws in athletic motion will promote inconsistencies golf swings which lead many players to deconstruct the elements that make up the entire sequence, typically reviewing posture, swing path, and transitions.
There may not be better golf training than working towards fully understanding our backswings. Me and my golf students pay close attention to the backswing because the athletic motion found during this sequence hugely influences the overall success of our shots.
Players with any tour experience recognize the immense importance of an effective backswing, with shoulder tilt often having the greatest influence over the success of this component within our swings.
36 degrees left at the top of the backswing position represents the standard tilt applied by most right handed top speed golf professionals, with many high handicap players experiencing shoulder tilt of 29 degrees to the left in the identical position.
The difference between 36 degrees and 29 degrees may seem mathematically insignificant but the actual effects a golfer will experience while trying to crack solid shots will be quite clear and consequential.
While the difference in degrees for these two positions may seem insignificant mathematically, the effects on a golfer’s ability to strike solid are extremely evident in the inconsistencies the high handicap golfer typically experiences.
Instability during backswings will cause limitations in your ability to turn downward under your head, causing complications in the overall golf swing.
Focusing on getting your shoulder down more towards the ground will improve your handicap on the golf course.
David Leadbetter developed the A Swing (or Alternative Swing) in Florida over the course of 10 years.
The swing creates an energy efficient athletic motion that minimizes body movement, which makes the A Swing easier to repeat with less of a physical toll placed on the golfer.
During your backswing, the A Swing will consume 30% less energy, with the center of gravity shifting 15% less compared to traditional swings.
One benefit of the A Swing concerns the 10% increase shoulder rotation during the backswing.
Such a high increase in our shoulder rotation assists in producing a backswing that ultimately results in better golf shots on a more consistent basis, mirroring the same motion most golfers only gain from tour experience or by taking lessons from a top speed golf pro.
