Your backswing is not as relevant as your downswing, but the reaction that you set up is as relevant. What I do going back is going to set me up to create speed or not to create speed.
The first move to create effortless power has to do with your feet. There is no getting around that you need to use your feet well so you can use the ground well to create speed. If you want to create effortless speed during your downswing and learn how to hit the ball farther, you need to have a pressure shift into the right foot. This move is actually more of a feel than it is a drill. When you go back, I want the pressure to go to the right foot and slightly back towards your heel.
Part number two is shoulder tilt. How steep or horizontal your shoulders tilt or how far down your left shoulder goes is going to dictate some of your ability to create speed.
A drill for this would be to put an alignment rod on the ground that represents the ball target line. Then put a second golf ball one foot outside of my golf ball and three clubs back – or about six inches to the right. I’ll then put an alignment rod across my shoulders, take a normal set up and make a backswing. I want to have my left shoulder down and my shoulders tilted to the point where it’s between the ball target line and that second golf ball. That is what I would call a safe zone.
The third part of creating speed during your backswing has to do with the shaft and the club itself. Whether the shaft is vertical or horizontal during the backswing affects how much speed you’re going to be able to produce. If I can get the shaft more vertical, it will produce more speed versus if I have the shaft more horizontal.
For this drill, again, I’ll need two alignment rods. I put one alignment rod by the ball target line. I take the second alignment rod and put it on the side of the club, and I grip it. The stick will be up the side of the club on my left hip. When I make a backswing I want the stick to point somewhere between the ball line and my feet line.
Those are the three moves to create effortless power during your backswing. The point of these three moves is to create a reaction during your downswing. You don’t hit the ball during your backswing, but you can do a lot to create reactions during your downswing to generate power.
