    Default The REAL end of the backswing

    I see folks all the time using a "top of the backswing" photo to show how much movement of one kind or another is happening "by the top of the backswing," or something like that.


    Every really good swinger is their furthest away from the target around a 3/4th to 4/5th of the club movement away from the ball, going back.


    So, in my opinion, it is more accurate to show the furthest away from the target movement as a true "end of the backswing" and the "end of the club movement" as part of the transition.



    A great example is Masters Champ Jordan Speith.

    I would classify it as this way:

    BACKSWING

    Everything moving away from the ball.
    TRANSITION

    Some things going away, some toward.
    DOWNSWING

    Everything starts to move toward the ball.

    or even better

    PULL BACK

    Left shoulder downward, outward, backward.
    RUN UP

    Left shoulder downward, outward, forward.
    JUMP

    jump start
    Left shoulder upward and inward...but still forward.

    jump

    Left shoulder upward, inward and backward.

    What are the hand/wrist movements that allow the club to shallow during transition?
    At least now I understand why I suck at this game.
