Is a back swing necessary in golf?

David Leadbetter sometimes gets his pro golfer students to hit shots with only the downswing. You do not need to have a backswing, but then positioning the club correctly could be difficult. That guy is wrong how the hell are you going to know were to swing the ball if you dont use a backswing. Trust me if you try you will miss! If you think im wrong tell me and tell me why. Zambozio Zambozio, I was simply trying to make the point that you can hit a golf ball well, even without a backswing, i was not saying that everyone should do it, or could do it. If you consider when you take your backswing, when you get to the top, you pause, meaning that you have lost all your momemtum and the sole purpose of the backswing was to get the club in the proper position, therefore if you practiced getting it in the correct position without a backswing, there would be no need for one.
