  1. Hi, this the same as the lead hip being higher as you finish impact?

      It think I say this in the tip. If one leg is longer your lead hip would be higher.

    This is a great visual way of getting the hips to turn enough. I constantly see golfers in the bent legs position and they all seem to lack power and consistency and chicken wings abound. It’s like being at Buffalos Wild Wings.

      Exactly. I just have to keep getting people to do what pros are doing. There are a few moves that if only I could get people doing them they would dramatically improve. Using the lower to hit the ball is the main one. Hopefully, people are constantly working on it.

    As you demonstrate at one point in this video,straightening the lead leg entails the pushing back of the left cheek:but in reverse you can think about pushing back the left cheek first in order to straigthen the left leg .

      Yes, you can certainly do it that way too. I will have to add that to the tips list.

    Thanks Paul for the link to this tip. Good to know that straightening the lead leg at impact is the correct thing to do. It seems the natural thing to do to take the shift of weight, and very unnatural to throw weight onto a bent leg. I guess I was not leaning back behind the ball when straightening the leg causing me to lift up and top some shots. Overall though with the help of your tips my swing is improving a lot now.
    Many thanks!

      Glad you liked it.

      Yes, it’s a turn not a jump. You jump and you will top it. It’s about turning. AS you turn the lead leg should be straightening.

    My question is whether the lead leg is straight at impact. You answered it! It is not straight, but close, and it allows the hips to keep turning.
