The Backswing

History has shown us that there have been many different backswings that have won major tournaments. Jack Nicklaus had an upright swing and Ray Floyd had a severe inside backswing that won him a Masters. The bottom line is that the ball could care less which swing you choose, so you must experiment with one that hits the ball solidly and epitomizes the type of shot you prefer. There are backswings that are short and some that are long. There are some that go inside, outside and straighter back than others. Your first goal is to make a full torso rotation and find out which style hits the ball solid and then work on direction. Many different backswings on Tour produce great results.
