    IMO, Max like so many golfers tries to balance on the balls of his feet.
    As a result golfers stand further away from the ball, and
    distort their spine, needlessly.

    We stand on our legs and our feet are connected to our legs at the heels
    so doesnt it make sense to balance on the heels.
    That automatically brings the ball closer.

    Arm pits over the knees is not a solution only an effect of proper balance over the heels, IMO.

Can turning your shoulders 90 degrees sap power from your swing

Learn what the right amount of “shoulder turn” is for you so you can maximize your efficiency factor in your swing. Not enough shoulder turn will prevent a proper weight shift and loading of momentum for the downswing and too much will throw the whole swing off of center and cause unnecessary strain in the transition! What could you focus on so you can consistently get the right proportion of turn for yourself?
