Got a question from a longtime surgite, Dewitt Strong, about forward press in the swing to start the backswing.
I was looking at some old golf books and I found on on the forward press. Basically, the book suggested the just before the backswing press your hand forward about one inch (25 mm). Then the backswing becomes opposite of the forward press.
This forward press is taught by many instructors and you see it on TV on tour, but I am here to tell you that it is wrong. As always, the Peak Performance Golf Swing is opposite of mainstream golf.
At the start of the backswing, we want to have a solid and steady stance. One important aspect, nose at the ball! Keep your nose pointed at the ball and your eyes on the ball. Take the club into the catchers mitt and up-the-tree with a solid stance.
