You’ve heard teachers talk about a “connected” swing. It basically means that all the parts of your swing - hips, shoulders, arms, and hands - move in proportional amounts and in a sequential pace.
What happens if your backswing is too long?
The connection breaks.
The 360˚ Mirror is your best teacher of the connected swing.
You can see your entire setup and swing while you are “looking at the ball”.
THE BACKSWING DRILL:
- Set up to the ball and decide on your ideal backswing position
- Mark the 360˚ Mirror with a line at this position (dry erase marker)
- Make 3 swings to this position
- Hit a ball
- Repeat until your handicap is as low as you want
A mirror is faster than video :)
