Aug 10, 2016 · The backswing is the where you begin your effort to give direction and control to the golf club.Â A good backswing sets the stage for that perfect swing, if you do not feel your body coil as you give power to your club, it may not be a perfect way to move forward into the downswing.
I like Waldrons explanation of the lift in the backswing to justify the undisputed fall in the downswing. At 0.12 you can see the lift in the backswing even in Jamie's off the knee swing. @2.42 Monty says 'take a full backswing'. Is that really his full backswing. I very much doubt it. That is his full backswing without the 'lift'.
