BUTCH’S BA­SICS

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best -

Some peo­ple think a shorter swing means shorter shots, but of­ten the op­po­site is true. Short, wide back­swings, where the hands stretch away from the body (above), cre­ate a big­ger arc than long swings where the arms col­lapse at the top. The key is how much you turn your body. As long as you make a good windup be­hind the ball, a short swing can be pow­er­ful.
