DROP BACK FOR STA­BIL­ITY

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best -

I hit a lot of three-quar­ter shots dur­ing prac­tice ses­sions, be­cause any mis­takes you make dur­ing the swing are ex­ac­er­bated when you take speed off the shot. An ex­am­ple: I hit a lot of slower shots with my right foot pulled back (above). My typ­i­cal mis­take is to dri away from the ball in the down­swing, let­ting my right side take over. I don’t hit it nearly as well when that hap­pens. But if my right foot is pulled back, I can’t dri . I feel like I’m cov­er­ing the ball with my body and stay­ing sta­ble for a qual­ity shot.
