Eric Cogorno: Upright Backswing Vs Flat Backswing

There is a lot of talk about upright golf swings vs flat golf swings, but what are the differences and why does it matter so much?

The upright golf swing is one within which your arms are positioned high and in front of you on your backswing. With a flat swing, players swing the club back in a way that wraps around the back of their bodies. In this video, Eric Cogorno and Kevin Roman discuss the difference between a throw release and a twist release.

They specifically focus on the arm and hand motions in this video and show you that while neither release is right or wrong, both will impact ball flight patterns.
