The rear leg, and in particular the lower part of the rear leg, is called the rear shin post. This is a critical part of the backswing. It stabilizes the lower body movement, allows the body to coil correctly, and allows a strong “push off” at the start of the downswing to create maximum body rotation and speed. An absolute must if you are looking to add distance!
Piers Ward and Andy Proudman of Meandmygolf do a great job here using BodiTrak, a pressure mat, to show how swaying and allowing the weight to roll to the outside of the rear foot will hurt your ball striking. They give a simple use of a coin to help resolve and stabilize the rear shin post to cure this problem.
PGA Professionals Piers Ward and Andy Proudman of Meandmygolf discuss whether swaying in your back swing is ok or not in this weeks Impact Show. They use Boditrak to show the weight shift in the golf swing and use a 50 pence piece to achieve better footwork and help improve your ball striking.
