Does a slow backswing help?

While you will want to play with a good tempo, you may want to use a slow backswing for some of your practice swings, both on the practice tee and on the course.

Should the hips start the downswing?

The hips initiate the downswing. This will allow you to create more distance and use your lower body to generate power. Remember, power comes from the ground up! At the top of the backswing, the hips have turned back, away from the ball and the target. On the way down, they will turn back and face the target directly.
