You'll get more information from my site. If you're going to dive into this swing then you'll need get my grandfather's book. It's hard to read at first but you also have my help.
Now let me address your question.
I know I'm talking by email and it all sounds technical and precise and hard to do and Iíll try to simplify it but it wonít seem like I am. This is a very technical swing. Itís good that you feel awkward. Everyone I teach feels awkward at first but they love the way the ball flies.
There is no pressure on the back heel. The pressure is in the arches. The arches of both feet push into the ground, I call it digging into the ground. This is necessary to prevent sway in the lower body as the arms torque into the shoulder or right forearm torques into right shoulder.
At the address the hips are already turned to their maximum, (AGAIN AT THE ADDRESS), not during the backswing.
At the backswings maximum the shoulders are inline with the hips (that were parked there at address).
You drop the right wrist/forearm straight down to the right heel to right ankle area. As your arms accelerate below your right knee, your shoulders square to the target but your hips stay in the same position they were parked in at address. Don't try and think about (what does he mean by right knee)You will notice that the shoulders cannot rotate past square with the hips turned to their maximum to the right at address. The shoulders rotate to hip location on backswing and rotate back to square or 12:00 horizontal clock on the downswing. The hips stay at 7:30 horizontal clock during 80% of the swing. This is known as the Vardon move, which my grandfather talks about in the book.
Both knees are flexed at all times during the swing.
Please type and re-read my thread on the Joe Norwood Swing.
It is imperative that you keep the wrists cocked during the downswing, yes it appears impossible but try it.
Here's where people lose the shot with this swing.
01. Rotating the hips during and the backswing and downswing.
02. Swing the arms out to their right toe on the downswing instead of to their right heel, once the arms move forward the centrifugal force moves the hips and the shot is lot.
03. wrist break, wrist break, wrist break. The right hand controls the swing. It cocks back or folds back and is held in that position throughout the swing.
Remember the grip. left hand strong, right hand weak, which will eventually become the strength of the swing. The handle of the club stretches from forefinger to back of palm/wrist joint, not straight down the finger joints.
Well I've done it again. I've probably confused you more but if you continue and read all the threads over and over and try to implement what I'm saying, the perfectly straight shots will continue.
