There are three important things in the golf swing, in this order.
1. The transition
2. The backswing
3. The setup
The better the setup, the easier it is to make a good backswing. The better the backswing, the easier it is to make a good transition.
Everything that happens after the transition is out of your control.
For those who disagree about my priority list…here is my thesis driven evidence.
How many great golfers are there with poor posture and weird backswings?
How many golfers are there with perfect setups and backswings and they stink because they have bad transitions?
A WHOLE LOT!!!!
