The backhand and forehand top spin volleys are very similar to the hand and arm action on a normal golf shot, but on a different plane and with the target hand higher on the club. This gives a sense of space in the golf backswing which runs out in the through swing because the lead arm has to fit into a cramped space and at speed. In tennis there is no time to think of taking a backswing, everything is reaction and watching the ball meet the racket strings.
Had a person in my playing group trying to show me a error in my swing. I donāt recall his exact terminology but it seemed like his example showed me a swing similar to a tennis shot. Not straight through but more on a arc.
If your familiar with cricket (which Iām not overly :/ ) I think Iāve been trying to hit a straight drive. Should I be playing more tennis?

Koiom, Impressive there is a simple way to shape the ball never though about explaining it like that to golfer for shaping the ball. Thanks for the idea.
I like to imagine hitting a topspin forehand up the line when I need to shape a big draw around an obstacle.
The tennis shot up the line often produces a right to left shape on the ball too.

Very true. Although Dr Koim and Professor GPJ their research is based on relatings feels to do excatly what you are saying. Understanding an concept is easy. Applying the skill or feeling the skill is the hard part. Dr Koim and Professor GPJ's research is a good way to relate with golfer who have a tennis, cricket and ten pin background to learn how to shape the ball using your feel. As Dr Koim and Professor GPJ out lined Probably only beneficial if the golfer has played tennis,cricket to a reasonable standard though:)
A tip I saw was to steer the ball as though you are turning a steering wheel. You want the ball to go right to left, then āturn the wheelā to the left in the swing. You want it to shape the other way, then turn to the right on the way through.
You donāt need to be a skilled tennis player, cricketer or bowler to understand that concept.
