Really enjoyed this tip. Being a slicer, the roll-over drill was one I had mis-placed in my arsenal. And the bounce on the right leg really helps. But I really like the touch the legs drill. I am sure many of us on the course have completed a shot only to realize that our legs are not touching…… Okay maybe only I have done that, but I’m practicing it more from now on.
Thanks for the reminders!
Mike, glad you like these drills. I get so many people telling me they don’t have a lot of time. You don’t need time to go hit balls. It’s about the movement. You can practice this anywhere.

Paul, In exercises 1 and 3 in this tip, do you recommend or maybe even encourage the practice of a slight roll of the ankle opposite of the leg where the weight will go? In other words, to start the weight transfer with a slight roll o he ankle as was demonstrated by Roger Fredricks on the Revolution site yesterday? Rolling the ankle does help me transfer the weight. Thank you for your valuable tips and advice, Roy
I have not heard it described as a roll of the ankle before. If this work for you then do it this way. Rolling is not a good word when talking weight shift. This bring up the image of a sway. You are loading onto this foot and unloading off of it into the follow through. Also, I have never heard anyone talk about ankles before. Really, you are trying to feel it in your feet. I will have to watch his video.

Paul, I do sense it in the feet but it is not an active thought or feel. I didn’t realize I was doing it until I saw Roger’s video. Jeremy’s videos on balance piqued my interest in my feet. I noted that when doing his “follow through” exercise I was either falling to my left or else I had trouble getting on my rear toe if I didn’t go too far left. After a touch my legs drill, I realized that I was very flat-footed doing Jeremy’s drill. Then Roger’s video tied it all together for me – I wasn’t “rolling” my right ankle at the start of the down swing. Thanks again for your answer and your time on this question. Roy
