Backswing Position

Backswing Position is the measurement in degrees (°) that the angle of the club shaft rotates between addressing the ball and the top of backswing. This is measured by the change in angle at address to the angle at the top of the swing. At address the club is at zero (0) degrees. At the top of the swing it is ideally 270°.
