Have you ever hear someone say I can’t play this game because I have too much of a baseball or hockey swing? Perhaps what they are really telling you is that they really weren’t very good a baseball or hockey, because good base ball, tennis, and hockey players learn golf very quick!
The backswing for golf is very similar to a backswing made in Tennis, Hockey or Baseball. If you think your backswing is to flat think upright baseball, to upright think of a flatter hockey swing. I really is that simple!
