In Lesson #1 I demonstrated the
"5 Basic Body Actions" necessary to achieve maximum results in
attaining your golfing goals of playing well in a relatively short period of time and which
require minimum amounts of maintenance. In Lesson #2
I expanded on the first basic action, 'Foot Action'. This lesson concentrates on connecting
the learned foot action to Leg and Knee action.
After you've established your setup as mentioned in the previous lesson, we now connect
the leg/knees to act together to support the foot action.
At your address position, your legs are firmly planted and knees are slightly flexed.
The beauty of this stage of your swing is that it's what I call a "bonus move" - because
as you roll your left foot to start back against a braced right leg, your left leg will naturally
have to go with the foot action you have already created, thus giving you a "2 for 1" move.
The movement, when done properly, will show your legs spelling the letter
K in the alphabet on your takeaway. Foot action and Leg &
Knee action are in sync - almost like your staging a little dance with excellent balance.
Remember... the knees must remained flexed throughout the swing!
The movement for the Foot Action/Leg & Knee action is minimal as you will see
with some practice; however, it's essential that you understand its overall importance in
maintaining a great foundation and sequence that, once learned, will never let you down.

get to the outside of your right leg, or let your right leg straighten up or buckle.
Your right leg is the fulcrum, or key, to storing up power in your
