The bird's eye view you had of golfers appearing to shift hips forward during backswing is intriguing.
You wrote: "Yes when I use the Blake swing my hips rotate in a way that shifts them toward the target." Can you elaborate on the phrase, "...rotate in a way that shifts them [hips] toward the target?" My own feeling is that I must start my backswing action "from the knees" to get a feeling of shifting my hips forward during my takeaway/backswing.
Of course, the conventional wisdom has always been, and remains so now, that there should be a weight shift to the trail side during the backswing. Did Mindy have special insight on this matter that still hasn't been discovered or accepted by mainstream golf instruction?
Trebuchet: a medieval military engine for hurling heavy missiles (as rocks). Do you (somehow) see a connection between a trebuchet and keeping the weight balanced between the feet during a golf backswing? Jim
