    I am truly enjoying your checkpoints series so far Paul. Thanks for your incredible attention to detail. Nobody does this. Nobody. I can’t wait to see each progression as you develop them. You are very distinctively pointing us in the the right direction. Yes, we have to put the work in, but now we are at least getting the right information, not just poking around in the dark. Hope is alive. Thank you.

    Do you advocate a slight lift of the front heel at this point or at the top of the backswing or would you prefer it to remain fully on the ground?

      I want the heel on the ground if you can. If you have to lift it then 1″. The problem with lifting it is that it loses the coil ration between the shoulders, hips knee and feet. Lifting it also give you a powerful feeling in your arms because you can go back farther. I am not hitting anything going back. I am setting the backswing. Once set I uncoil with the legs to hit it. Here is a tip I do did on it:

      Lift Heel or Not:

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks again for starting up these checklists. They are great. I’m making screen grabs that I’m using at the range.
    Just asking here about the 20 degree depth of swing. I’m not sure if I get this. Or perhaps exactly what you are measuring as 20 degrees…
