Arm placement during backswing

Orval Jones

Q: On the back swing, I do not turn my left arm over my right as I see some do. Dosen't that create more parts to move on the downwing? I realize there should be some turning over of the right over left on downswing, but its the back swing I would like to know the proper way to take back as well as set.

A: I'd tell you that I've seen and worked with many good players that don't turn their left arm over their right during the back swing. Its not something that I see good players do and there for wouldn't suggest that you do it either.
