During the golf swing, there are a lot of key fundamental points and key fundamental positions that you want to be hitting. Having a full back swing turn is a combination of these things. A full back swing turn will allow you to generate a lot more power. It’ll also allow you to generate a lot more consistency if you can manage to complete the full turn by getting certain pause of the body into the right position.

Now, a full back swing turn will generally look like for most people right after a solid setup, the club is moving away from the ball, the arms are extending backwards before the wrists are hinging and just notice that all the time that my shoulders are rotating away from the target. This is the aspect of the turn that most people will focus on when they look at the back swing, so that chest and the shoulders moving away from the ball as the arms rise within wrist hinge up to a point where the shoulders have turned fully underneath the left chin, the arms are extended out and away from the body and you are into that fully rotated and coiled position.

Once you are in that position, that allows you to build up a lot of potential energy. With a lot of potential energy and a lot of potential swing speed, you can move through the ball and you will be able to hit it further and harder. The idea of the more consistency is you can generate that power a lot more easily than if you were to say only to take it back to here with what you would call a half turn as the shoulders don’t rotate fully back, they only move to a halfway position.

From here, you will not able to generate the amount of power needed to hit the ball out there a decent distance. So, what we are going to look at is examples of what you need to do with turn, positions that you may not quite be getting that turn and how this will affect your golf equipment going forward. So, stay tuned and let’s talk about the back swing rotation and the full body turn.
