Hitting shots off the back foot


Q: I am hitting my shots off the back foot. Whar are some drills to help transfer to the left side?

A: Golfers who hit off their back foot do so because their angle of attack into the ball is too steep and by hitting off their back foot they have a chance to level the clubhead out and hit the back of the ball instead of chopping into the ground. To cure this you must first shallow out (level out) your angle of attack into the ball and then start standing more on the forward leg. The two best ways of swallowing your swing are to either flatten out your backswing and downswing plane or by swinging more from the inside-out in the downswing. Either approach will get you less steep and will allow you to transfer your weight onto your lead foot.
