For those who have read through my website you will see I don't put as much of a high regard on the backswing as many golf instructors tend to do. The glaring reasons being that 1) there have been so many different looking backswings in the history of golf that have performed and repeated with exemplary results.... and.... 2) the backswing is MAINLY a way of taking the club back in a manner that will enable the golfer the best way they know how to put them into THEIR hitting area.
Therefore...IF a golfer has a flawed idea about the concept of what hitting the ball is actually like then trying to force his backswing into something that won't allow that 'idea' of their hit to occur is not going to help matters much. In most cases it will only make matters worse because now the golfer has to manipulate even more movements to get back to the ball in the only manner he knows how.
This is the main reason I teach in the manner I do. I teach what the HIT is first and foremost and in many circumstances my students backswings actually change for the better because their concept of strike has altered for the better also.
So what is the HIT?

The Zone- that airless floating indescribable place we wander off to when we seem to have our best rounds of golf. What is the zone? And HOW can we visit it more often in our journey to better golf?
Let’s change the word “Zone” to the word “Comfort” instead….because that is what it really is.
There is a certain type of comfort in our ability that allows us to slow down and analyse and make better decisions for better results. Comfort comes from confidence. Confidence in one’s ability to be able to produce the necessary shot that is presented before us. Obviously good practice and the experience of practicing and performing well struck solid shots to a specific distance and target spread out over the vast landscape of shots we may need throughout a round of golf will help us have at least one hand on the Zone area. So we can never under estimate the practice it takes to work on and understand how to hit ANY shot.
