The premise was that since the backswing really doesn't add any value to the swing, but only gets you set up for a good downswing, then why not eliminate the back swing? They say to:
- set up to the ball like you normally would, with the proper distance from the ball, correct grip, etc....then...
- get at the position where your right elbow is bent, and the shaft of the club is at about 90 degrees to your straight left arm.
- Pump the left arm...basically raise the left arm a few inches and then..
- Hit the ball
I tried this at the range last weekend, and I actually did better at the "No Backswing" swing then I thought I would. However, I think this approach loses the rhythm and the back and forward swing creates.
After experimenting with this concept, I really think this "No Backswing" should be used as a drill rather than a swing that is used on the course.
