Lots of golfers worry about their swing plane, their position at the top, the downswing, etc. But all of these parts of the swing are predicated on the start of the backswing. And the way that the backswing is initiated can affect the rest of the swing all the way through impact.
In this swing tip video, Brad Brewer of the Brad Brewer Golf Academy in Orlando, Fla., demonstrates a drill for taking the club back on the right path.
The key is to use your big muscles to initiate the backswing, rather than pulling it with your hands to the inside of the target line or lifting your arms up.
You'll need a could of aiming sticks or extra clubs to help track the path of the club as you work on this, but it's worth the effort.
