Using the “MySwing balance plates,” we see the difference of how the Center of Gravity (CG) moves when you are on one leg, in a standard set up, or in a hybrid setup between the two. This is referred to as a diagonal stance or closed stance, and it’s gaining quite a bit of popularity on Tour with players such as Matt Kuchar and Graeme McDowell. The findings were very interesting!

    Shawn hits the ball as well and as far with one leg, proving that power does not originate in the legs. Thank you Shawn.

      Then how do Ground Forces provide the extra power if not through the legs?
      One leg = Low power…. Two legs = Max power…. plain & simple.

        Ground forces dont create power, they allow the power of the upper body to be transmitted to the clubhead, by providing balance and stability for the upper body…newtons third law.

        The lower body, including the legs provide the equal and opposite reaction force.

    We pivot on our right hip in the BS and finish the pivot on the left hip.
    Pivot on our hip joints is only possible when our hips are supported by our legs.

    If pivot is greater with longer clubs, then doesnt it make sense that the leg position should be such that the right hip is well supported when pivot is deeper?

    Of course a closed stance(trail foot further back from target line) places our trail leg in a position to support the larger , deeper pivot on the right hip.

    There is no mystery, no secret, just common sense.

      But what happens within the hips when you are transitioning from the right trail hip to the lead left hip… that split second when neither hip is fully loaded? 😮

      1992? … Surely load plate data and 3D video has obsoleted much of what Hogan (Aussie?) has written?!!

        OGO

        Are you saying that when torso turns in the BS, the trail hip is not supported by the legs?

        That is the statement written in 1992. How to do it and why. That has not changed.

        Tell us something in the book that IS obsolete…. please. Time and technology doesnt change FACTS.
