A poor backswing connection and sequence is a common thing with amateur golfers. We often see a disconnection of the arms in the move away, and this leads to all sorts of problems in your swing.
A good backswing connection and sequence is very important to allow you to produce a consistent downswing and deliver the club on plane with a square face.
A great way to help you stay connected in your back swing is to imagine you are standing in a clock face with a laser pointing out the butt of the golf club. In your move away allow your torso to move your arms and club and when your club reaches 8 o’clock, have the laser pointing between your forearms.
This will allow your club arms and torso to move in a better sequence and ultimately help you hit more consistent shots.
