If you are not willing to work on your golf flexibility, then the only option would be to learn how to shorten your golf swing. What Happens When You Make Less Than A Full Swing? 1) Lack of clubhead speed - resulting in shorter distances with every club. 2) Inconsistent timing - making it harder to duplicate good swing mechanics. 3) No torque - your core stores a lot of power via torque. This is from a big rotation. Smaller rotation equals less torque, which equals less power and again distance. 4) Less confidence - when you make a shorter backswing you typically know you're not going to hit it very far which affects your mental side of golf. The Benefits Of A Shorter Backswing. Doing a shorter swing makes it easier to get back to the ball since you know where the club is. This can create better ball contact and straighter shots.
