Should you simply shift your weight to the front foot and turn? It’s not that simple if you look at the elite players.

    Horrible video.Your own video shows Johnny Miller with only his right toe touching so how can his weight be on the back foot. Try teaching this philosophy to a 20 handicap and watch him hang back and hit horrible drives the rest of his life. 🙁

    Lucas…. you are confusing gravitational ‘weight’ with lateral thrust in the trail foot. Also, you must account for underfoot torque to fully understand ground reaction forces and torques created in the golf swing.

Yes, you heard me, one of the best drills we have is the battering ram drill. It is awesome for getting the relationship between body turn and arm swing correct, and improving your impact conditions. Enjoy the video, and hope this helps!
