Two-handed Backhand

Have you been watching the tennis at Wimbledon? Federer looks pretty darn good this year. He's one of the few players who still hits the backhand one-handed. Most players have gone to the two-handed backhand for more power.

Bobby Jones said the golf swing was essentially a backhanded shot with the left hand for a right-handed golfer.  Actually, that's exactly what it is; a two-handed backhand. If you are a right-handed player who thinks of the right hand controlling your club, try making a two handed backhand instead. 

The right hand can ruin more shots for a right-hander than you can imagine. If you play right-handed, try making your shots two-handed backhands, with the left hand controlling the swing, and watch your shots improve.
