There are a few moves you can make in the backswing that all but guarantee a poor strike, and Eric Cogorno speaks with top golf coach JT Thomas to highlight the biggest BACKSWING KILLER.
According to both men, any golfer whose lead shoulder gets away from the ground in the backswing will be faced with a resultant lack of left side bend.
No left side bend on the way back will likely lead to zero right side bend on the way back down. With right side bend being one of the keys to a great downswing, the chances of a good strike are minimal.
