How to spot a good backswing from a bad one

Golf instruction usually is loaded with tips on what you need to do to optimize your downswing and impact position. And while that’s obviously important, I believe it’s just as important to know how to make a proper backswing.

Anthony Kim Snapshot

Don’t get us wrong, Anthony Kim still has in our opinion, one of the

most compact and powerful swings on the PGA Tour. As is the case with
