  • Where should weight be when finishing swing?

    I see a pretty straight lead leg with a body tilt away from it. which makes me think the Pro's weight is on back foot. However, back foot is on the toe or side and doesnt look like it is bearing much weight


    So should the weight be evenly divided after the swing?

    2. How much of a weight transfer do you want? Load and put most weight on back foot and shift so most weight is on front foot into contact and than go back to evenly divided?

    Why do you care where the weight is AFTER you hit the ball?

    Yes, it can be a factor to judge whether you did the right stuff getting to contact, but it shouldn't be the main focus.

    The main thing you need to do is rotate the torso. To hit the most effectively you shift and rotate, pretty much simultaneously.

    The front foot has the equivalent of 123% of your body weight on it, at contact. There shouldn't be much weight on the back foot at contact.

    The weight goes from back foot, to front foot, to back foot, but it is shifting WHILE you rotate. IOW, you rotate off the back foot, onto the front foot, and the finish of the rotation puts you back on the back foot.

      I really don't know or care that much (as long as it doesn't affect where the weight is at the point of contact).

      I just want most to all of the weight on the front foot at the point of contact.
