Backswing.com is an Internet publication where golf professionals have a voice to share their views and insight on topics ranging from instruction, to fitness, to the game itself. We began by publishing written roundups where multiple pros comment on a specific topic.
Since publishing the first roundup in April of 2019, hundreds of golf professionals have come on board to provide their wide-ranging opinions and advice. We are incredibly grateful for the reception we received from the community of golf professionals and for their active participation in our efforts to grow the game.
As Backswing continued to grow, we saw an opportunity to bring more value to our readers in the areas of instruction and great deals at top courses. In early 2021 we launched The Fix by Backswing & Foursomes by Backswing.
