Tips and Drills:
Lengthen or Shorten Your Swing
Check out some of the below drills and tips to see various ways to use backswing length to improve your game!
THREE EASY WAYS TO LENGTHEN YOUR SWING
We hear from so many deWiz users that claim that they "can't swing the club any longer." Try these three easy tips and watch that Length of Backswing number increase!
1. Turn your head slightly towards your back foot. This minor adjustment allows for more rotation of the shoulders in the backswing.
2. Turn your back foot to a 45° angle. This will free the hips to again allow for more rotation.
3. Don't forget to ROTATE at the waist! Many players with shorter backswings will find that they can add a few inches to their backswing by simply rotating more with their hips.
DEVELOP A "GO-TO" SHOT BY SHORTENING YOUR SWING
There comes a time in every round where you step up to the tee and danger seems to be lurking everywhere. It's always important to have that "fairway finder" or "go-to" shot in your bag for these situations!
A shorter backswing will help to limit the dispersion of your shot shape and increase the likelihood of staying away from that trouble.
Work with your deWiz to develop this shot by taking a reliable club and practice taking swings 4-5 inches (10-13 cm) shorter than your standard Length of Backswing. Stay out of trouble and find those fairways!
