Proper leg actions will promote better golf swing

Right Leg:

Leg actions is very important and you should understand that when the golfer makes his/her backswing, the back leg (right leg for right handed golfer) will remain flexed during the entire swing. This is very important as you practice the drill on weight transfer.


GOLF108EbDuring the Backswing:

What you should NOT do.

If your back leg straightens  during the backswing, your body will lift causing your posture to change. This can hinder the proper weight transfer potentially causing you to miss – hit your shots.

So remember, keep the back leg flexed during the entire swing (backswing, forward swing and follow through).
