Is There A Perfect Golf Back Swing?

Written by Bobby Lopez

Well, who knows?  There does seem to be a common path that a lot of the young successful players are following.  Doesn’t mean that Tommy “Two Hands” Gainey doesn’t do it and he’s very successful.

If you can get the golf club back to square or hit the ball where you’re looking, the ball is not going to complain.  The ball can only do exactly what you tell it to do! 

We look in this analysis how three different players are taking the golf club back in exactly the same manner.  It must be working?  I can show you more than only these three but in today’s busy world, who has time for that.  Look at these three: Jason Dufner, Matt Kuchar, Bubba Watson and Zack Johnson.

Again it doesn’t mean you have to do this to be successful or consistent.  Jim Furyk, put away the razor blades!  It’s OK.  There is so much more to being a successful tour player than a perfect swing.  So much of it is in your head.

I once asked Vincente De Vincenzo what it took to make it.  He said, “you either had to have a great swing or great faith.”  He then said, “great faith will be a great swing every time!”

Here’s the analysis.  Hope it helps your game.
