I am not referring to John Daly’s pants. I am referring to his long back-swing. His long back-swing is unique and should NOT be copied. He is very flexible for being such a large man.

Here is what determines YOUR full backswing:

1. your current flexibility
2. your current strength
3. your current technique
4. your golf club’s length

When John Daly won the 1991 PGA he became world famous for his monster long drives and long back-swing. I recall after he won the PGA, the driving range was full of amateur golfers trying to swing like John Daly. Yeah, and I was one golfer that tried too. Why? More distance.

If you would like to learn more about your back-swing, please contact via email at rcamacho at azgolfinstructor dot com, and by phone at 602-828-GOLF (4653).
