Response to Re: A Blake Hybrid?
I once asked Richard Wax if he felt that his hips moved forward during his backswing and, as I recall, his response was that this was not something he had tried (overtly) to incorporate into his swing. When I feel that I start my backswing from the knees, rather than from the hips, it is possible to move the hips forward while the shoulders are turning in the opposite direction. A pertinent question arises about Blake's objective for the backswing. He wrote that he was trying to avoid a weight shift to the trail foot, ie, to keep the weight balanced between the feet, rather than shifting it away from the target. What is your opinion of that idea? Jim
