A Shorter Back Swing

I’ve made great progress with the swing changes I mentioned last week. I stepped through a couple of videos frame by frame to see a comparison of the longest part of my back swing.

The club head is stopping a good 2-3 feet short of where is used to. It looks like I’m still crossing the target line a little, but I’ll take it because the shaft is stopping short of parallel for the first time in my life. With a shorter back swing, my head only moves a bit and so many other things are in a better position. My timing is off on the woods and driver, but has gotten better after a couple of sessions on the range. Iron shots feel great. I can’t wait to take the new swing to the course tomorrow for the first night of golf league.
