Video Practice Points
  • Proper stance width is 2" outside of neutral hip alignment

  • Check your right shoe at follow through - there should be virtually no weight on that leg, so the shoe should be straight at finish

"I think he's come very close to a golf swing model that appears to be ideal...It's a big muscle, motor-driven swing that's repeatable...You don't have to be a super athlete."

I am out-hitting guys in their 40's and 50's, thanks to you and your system. My back or other muscles never ache, nor am I tired after 18 holes. I am so glad I found your technique and system."
