    GREETINGS COACH After watching your tip ,with PAUL and ERIC, you pointed out that there was no grass showing between Erics knees. I took a look at my swing and saw a small gap.Watching this tip I realized that I was not really pointing my forward knee behind the ball.OK I got the fix but when I make the move my forward foot,left foot,rolls just a touch,not off the ground,but I feel a little pressure, only just a little. There now is no gap. OK yes /no? THANKS

      Very good. If there is a gap you are turning too much. Less turn more torque (coiling your spring). Keep at it.

    PS I feel the slight pressure on the instep of my forward foot

      Be careful. Make sure you are more focused on loading into the back instep 80%. I am not focused on this forward foot at all. There will be 20% of your weight on the forward foot but because there is 80% on the back foot you wouldn’t even be thinking about the forward foot.

    This checkpoint was very instrumental for me. Again looking at a lot of video I took of myself, I can see the grass through my legs at the top. Was also getting sway rather than turn and straightening the back leg too much, sometimes totally straight. Did a lot to get much less movement in my backswing and make sure I stayed on that instep and that made the big difference. Feels effortless now and I think I *really* understand hitting with my body now. In this case for me, less is more. Wow.

      Great. This will tighten up the backswing giving you the torque.

      Less is more.
