What to Know About Golf Backswing Extensor Actionns?

When watching golfers at a crowded driving range, you might find it's not difficult to separate the good hitters from the others by their backswing. Many novice golfers and hackers have a tendency to take the club back in a hurried motion and swat at the golf ball. Good hitters take the club back and swing with a fluid motion. Hitting a golf ball effectively requires the coordination of your arms and body rotation. Hitting it farther requires stronger arm extension at a key point during your swing.
Step 1
Take your normal stance without holding a golf club, and look at a target. In this position, your front arm is closest to the target and your back is away from the target.
Step 2
Grip your front arm just below the elbow with your other hand. Bend and extend your front arm several times, and feel the extensor muscle flex on the underside of that arm. This muscle is used to straighten your front arm.
Step 3
Hold a golf club with your normal grip, and address a golf ball. Take the club back and stop at the top of your backswing. At this point, your front arm is slightly bent and your back arm is fully bent. The club should be parallel with the ground at the top of your back swing and you eyes should be focused on the golf ball.
Step 4
Swing the club slowly and stop when the club head is about to contact the golf ball. At this point, you have used the extensor muscle in your front arm to fully extend that arm.
Step 5
Address the golf ball again using your normal grip and stance. Your goal is to extend your front arm with more force as you maintain the club on the correct inside-out plane during your swing. Understand that the point where you add force to the extensor action is the same point at which you normally extend your front arm on the downswing.
Step 6
Focus on the golf ball as you take the club back to the top of the backswing. Concentrate on the correct inside-out plane, and swing the club using more force from your extensor muscle at the instant the club approaches the point of contact.
Step 7
Continue to practice hitting golf balls while focusing on your extensor action. It's OK if your accuracy decreases at first, because you are increasing the speed of the club.
Step 8
Continue to practice until you regain accuracy while using more extensor action.
