    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

      John,

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

      John,

      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.

    Paul,

    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.

    Thanks,
    Kim

      Kim,

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

      Less is more.
