Is it better to let your lead heel come off the ground on

your back swing or keep it down?
Does raising it help with weight shift and
or timing?

A good golfer i was talking to who rasies his
heel said that he feels like he steps on
the ball during impact - so it must be some kind of
timing thing for him.

What do you guys do and why?
How well do you hit the ball when you
try it the other way? Talking about full shots
with the longer clubs.

Keep both feet on the ground at all times.

I think that neither foot should ever come off the ground. The golf course is not the place to dance. You just need to hit solid shots.

If you use a compound pivot (think Mike Austin as taught by Dan Shauger) then it's part of the action of the swing. Probably not a one size fits all answer. With any of the wide stance / SA type swings I doubt it adds any value. My opinion.
