    Hi Paul. Can this also help me from moving my head too much in the backswing?:)

      Sure. Just keep the weight on the instep and you shouldn’t be moving the head too much going back.

    Paul, is there a problem starting the back swing with weight on the right instep? You mentioned shifting your wgt on the top of the backswing.

      If you do this you may end up leaning too far behind the ball. I would be careful. Maybe do this as a drill so you feel where the weight is and you get used to it but think about 50/50 in the future.

    Hello Paul – Thanks for this tip and since watching I am trying to get my right knee over my right foot more, which gets me in a better position at the top of my backswing and stops me swaying which I am prone to do. One consequence of this is a lower ball flight trejoctorary, especially off the tee which I presume means I am hitting down on the ball more, which is fine because I play on a coastal course and I am getting more distance “under” the wind. As a tall player is this another of the expected consequences of adjusting my right knee position at set up ?

      I would think you are loading better on the back foot then shifting more in the downswing de-lofting your club. You really don’t want to hit it too low. You need to focus on your weight distribution through impact. Feel a little more weight on the back foot (not hanging back) and you should see the height of your shots increase.
