There is a minimal amount of layoff in the PPGS backswing. But one golden rule, never must we swing into the sacred burial ground! We had a comment on the blog about the lay off of the club in the backswing, I want to clarify what is happening in the backswing.
This is an excellent question and it goes into one of the fine details of the PPGS swing. Pulling down the club from the backswing the club lays off slightly but we never enter the sacred burial ground.
