It is easy to disregard the finer points of taking the club back because as the saying goes in golf. "you don't hit it with your backswing".
It is a nice sentiment and it is true that with enough practise you can learn to hit the ball from a variety of backswing body shapes, however, the downswing gets easier and less reliant on coordination and complex self-organisation when the backswing has the correct structure.
Other benefits include:
All said, if you take the time to learn to make a backswing that has solid structure then you will be able to move more freely in the downswing, create more club speed and a consistent club delivery.
We are serious about learning.
