“3 reasons to swing your golf club backward?” By far, the most counter-intuitive thing you’ll ever hear to improve your golf swing.
But stick with me, it’ll all make perfect sense below.
Read on to learn about how one very simple movement (that’s really fun to do) can address three of the biggest trouble areas golfers have.
3 Reasons To Swing Backward
Rotation/Flexibility – think about turning your head for a moment. If all you ever did your entire life was look left, your neck would be so stiff if you ever tried to look right.
Swinging the opposite way is going to help you increase your full Range Of Motion (ROM) for your entire body.
Which leads too…
Balance – you’re going to challenge your body and get it out of its comfort zone, which helps teach your golf brain to find new ways to find its balance.
Basically, more weapons in your balance arsenal.
Which brings us to the sexiest part of golf…
Acceleration/Deceleration – I don’t care if you are Rory McIlroy or the once-a-year scrambler, we all want more club head speed.
Teaching your body how to handle the acceleration and deceleration forces in both directions creates more speed…and that’s good.
If you were to list the 10 common characteristics of the best golfers, 3 of the top 5 would be excellent flexibility, great balance, and tremendous power.
Swinging the club backward is a simple and supremely effective way to improve all three areas.
Bonus: You already have the equipment and can do it anywhere.
