  1. To simplify things: you re-center into the ball of your lead foot, hopefully just before the top of the swing. The pressure "flows" from the ball of the left foot --> inside arch of the left foot --> heel of the left foot. It's actually internal rotation of the lead hip. The move is almost a mirror image of your backswing (albeit with more force, due to the downswing's momentum). The left knee feels straight at impact (though it really isn't quite straight, and shouldn't be). The pressure into the heel allows the lead hip to get out of the way and creates that nice combo of left side bend and rotation of the upper body at impact. Many times, you'll see pros put so much force into their lead heel that the toe actually twists a bit. If you want to feel this, there are several things you can do: 1. you can buy a Force Pedal disc on Amazon, or save the $50 and cut a tennis ball in half and put it under the ball of your lead foot. As you pressure downward, the tennis ball pushes you back. 2. Put a paper plate or one of those floor sliders people use for workouts under your lead foot and push your lead foot away from you (towards the ball side) as you come down. Don't hit balls this way, btw! Do 5-10 practice swings, then hit some balls w/o the paper plate. You'll feel how it works!
  2. I’m working with him. I’m on lesson 2 of the 3 lessons. He really gives you 5 lessons, because he breaks the basic components up. So far I’ve gotten a lot out of it. He fixed my posture and arm hang. Now we’re working on the stroke and grip. Basic stuff, but important. I’m already putting better. Preston is also pretty available for questions. All in all, money well spent.
  3. Yuk. Have fun with bursitis in your lead wrist, being stuck on the downswing, and a chronically open clubface.
  4. I got a pair of J1 Low Retro Golfs in Shadow. They're 2 sizes big so... selling on StockX! Too bad, the colorway is great.
  5. James Oh is a short game wiz. This is worth your time: https://www.instagram.com/reel/CX4xCO8puuc/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
  6. I can send you a packet of range basket seeds. They only grow in the spring tho.
  7. I struggle with the same thing. The above a great drill, as well as the one where you put a ball or basket legs and the first move down is to let the ball go, then turn through: https://rebelliongolf.com/drop-the-basket-drop-the-ballerina/
  8. I'm working through this issue. My trail elbow gets too far behind me. To remedy it, I do this: https://www.instagram.com/reel/CXxXiQuAytl/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link May or may not be for you. Who knows?
  9. The wrists don't set that much. In fact, if you over-set your wrists, you'll screw up your clubface alignments. What really "sets" the 90 degree (or so) angle is the lift and bend of the trail elbow. Do a bicep curl with your trail elbow as you turn.

  10. I'm doing online putting lessons with Preston Combs online. He's great. Check him out and see if he's for you: https://www.prestonsputting.com/
  11. It's awful. Poorly maintained, poorly run, overpriced in every regard. A lousy hot dog is > $10.
  12. I bought a V2 on sale Black Friday and paired with a Rovic RV1S. Very stable on elevations. Also, spring for the TFS-- it's completely worth it!
