    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.

When pitching, you may have learned to keep your weight on your lead foot throughout the shot. That’s not always the best approach. With BodiTrak, I show you how to move your weight correctly to achieve more consistent strikes.
