Achieving a good backswing is firmly on the checklist for every amateur golfer. It gets you into a position that makes it more likely that you will consistently and effectively deliver the club into impact.
If you're struggling to fix your own backswing and find your golf game is suffering as a result, this video from Eric Cogorno will help.
As the main man tells us, good backswings stay on plane the entire time or lean more towards a vertical shaft. Your left arm – and more specifically left elbow – controls whether the shaft is on plane, horizontal or vertical. The trick Eric shows you in this video is really about using that lead arm and arm rotation to fix your backswing plane for good.
