If you look at Wes Short Jr.’s golf swing from a rear view, you can see that he has a not-too-complex, neat backswing, and the sound of his impact is strong and pure. This prompt’s a look at his player-profile and statistics, which reveal that he is barely a Senior, and only began playing on the Champions Tour in 2013.

As a golfer ages, any complex top-of-backswing positions (that is positions in which many trail-arm joints have been moved in various planes of motion), become more difficult to undo. Why? Because human muscle looses strength and thus speed and cannot perform many movements altogether. Nerve conduction velocity too begins to slow, so that the brain cannot send messages as to what to do fast enough to working muscles.
