The Most Common Backswing Flaw

One of the most confusing terms in golf instruction is "shoulder turn". Personally, I believe that instructors that talk about shoulder turn to describe the amount of turn during the backswing are hurting their students.

To explain why I feel this way, I will ask you to try a little experiment.

Reach both arms in front of your body and take your right hand and grab your left wrist. Now, without turning your chest, pull your left arm across your chest with your right hand until your left arm is pointing to your right.

Notice how far your left shoulder moved. If your shoulders do this during your backswing and you think you are turning, this is the root of your backswing maladies.

For the club face to come back to the ball square and centered, the geometry and relationship of the arms and upper body cannot change during the swing. Doing this experiment, you see that what might look like a backswing to many golfers, but is actually a major change in the arms/body geometry which can result in a whole slew of wild shots depending on what else the golfer tries to compensate.

Now try a new experiment. Cross your arms across your chest and turn your upper body until your chest faces away from the target (make a backswing). You'll notice that your arms and chest moved together. This is the same movement you should be making during your backswing.

What's the difference between the two turns?

During the first turn, the arms pulled parts of the upper body until the arms looked as if they were in place. The stomach and hips didn't turn.

During the second turn, you had to turn your mid-section to make the turn, also turning the hips as needed. Those are the very same muscle you should always use to make your normal backswing turn.

This one change in your swing will create more distance with less effort. It is not the end all of the golf swing, because there is more to controlling your movement, but it is one of the most common mistakes I see that many instructors miss during their lessons. Now you can improve your backswing and become more consistent.

Instead of thinking about turning your shoulders, think about turning your chest.

This may not completely correct your shot pattern, but it may get it more under control and give you more distance as well.

Even accomplished golfers sometimes make this mistake but on a much smaller scale. It is one of the most common timing errors in the golf swing.
