Hi I'm Tom Stickney Golf Magazine Top 100 Instructor and today I want to talk to you about how to hit the big dog further by increasing your width in the backstroke. A lot of times people trying to hit a lot further they get up here they turn to the top they get a little stiff they can't turn quite as much arms tend to collapse given them a false sense of a big turn. The easiest way to make sure that you turn maximally and you have the most width to your backswing as well as length is to make sure when you take it to the top so arms don't bend but the right arm extends and that pulls the left arm to a straight taut condition you'll feel it pushing against right here.

That pressure point pushing against that thumb when you do that you're going to have a wider backstroke. So your shoulders going to turn if you're going to have a wide arm swing and then from there down all you can release all the way through it have maximum power. Remember if your arms break down that's wasted motion push those arms out away from the body but you know that right arm straight and that pressure point against the thumb. When you get to the top and you have that width you're going to find it that you're going to be able to hit the ball further than you ever thought possible.
