Your Swing Thought for the week;   Feel athletic and balanced at the top of the swing.  An important point to remember is that the backswing is designed to set up a powerful and consistent attack into impact. When you think of squatting (butt toward the ground), allow your knees to pivot with your hips as you rotate your way to the top.”.
