Get it right go­ing back

the tran­si­tion

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

One of the big­gest back­swing mis­takes I see is when a player ro­tates the lead arm over the trail arm right away. That makes the club pull to the in­side, putting it im­me­di­ately out of po­si­tion.

To feel the right move­ment, pick up a range bucket that’s half full of balls and get into your setup. Sim­u­late your back­swing, keep­ing the bucket aligned so the balls stay in (far left). Only when you get to the top should you feel the bucket turn­ing so that the balls fall out – right as you start down (left). That’s the po­si­tion you want to be in to fire into im­pact.

To fix a slice, don’t dump the balls on the back­swing.
