    Check Jack Nicklaus and Ben Hogan at top of BS. They both “fart behind their left heel”
    Straight spine, no side bend. Simply preset spine angle at address .

      In correct takeaway the extreme butt of the shaft is moved down with the pinkie of the top hand.

      The golf club is a lever and the butt end has to move down toward the ground in order for the clubhead to be moved up, away from the ground.
