Create width for more distance
I’m trying to be as neutral as possible at the top of the backswing and I’m pretty good at achieving this. I want my left arm to be straight and stretched away from the ball as far as possible to create width. The wider your swing is, the further the clubhead travels and the more speed you can build. I’m a short guy, so I need to generate as much width and speed as I can to hit the ball a long way.
