BACKSWING AT 45 DEGREES

45 degree with irons:

When using any irons, the backswing should not exceed 45 degrees, as shown in the image above.

Keep the left arm straight during the backswing. This will prevent your club from going too far in the backswing.

Going back too far:

You are looking for trouble when sending your club too far back during your backswing, as shown in the image above.

Straight left arm drill:

With your right hand behind your left arm, pull the arm across the body causing the shoulder to turn, therefore, creating a stretch in the upper left side of the body, as shown in the image above.

This will also help your left arm to remain extended during the backswing.

Keep this position for a few seconds or longer and repeat as often as possible until you no longer bend your elbow while doing your backswing (muscle memory).
