Hanging Back

WHAT IS HANGING BACK?

When a golfer “hangs back”, their weight does not shift correctly back onto the lead side on the downswing.  Golfers tend to hang back on their trailing leg and spine through impact.  This results in a lack of power and the inability to create a consistent strike on the golf ball.  This will also usually result in a premature release of the wrists angles, as the player is trying to advance the club with their arms rather than with the correct weight shift and pivot.
