Golf Book on Hitting it Longer

Keep your left arm straight? Many golfers complain about how difficult it is to keep their lever arm (left arm for right-handed golfers) straight in the backswing. Let me offer two general suggestions:

  1. It is not absolutely necessary to keep your lever arm completely straight in the backswing. Some excellent players have a slight fold or give in their lever arm in the backswing, but they then allow it naturally re-extend on the downswing.
  2. Most of the time when extension is a problem it is not necessarily a lack of flexibility, but a lack of upper torso rotation in the backswing: i.e., the arms are trying to go too far back for how much the shoulders are turning.

Although a fully extended lever arm is ideal for a simple golf swing it is not essential. And if you make a good shoulder turn instead of trying to create the backswing with your arms, then keeping your lever arm extended is pretty easy.

Golf swing and short game techniques are covered in simple and user-friendly detail in my books, "The Your Golf series," shown in the graphic above (and a couple to the right).

And I work with golfers of all skill levels on all areas of their games (individually or in small groups of friends, family, co-workers, etc.) in my Private Golf Schools.
