Video Golf Tip | Footwork In The Swing
By Brent Franklin

Hi, I am Brent Franklin with the Mike McGetrick Golf Academy here in Denver, Colorado. What I want to talk to you right now is footwork. Footwork is very important in maintaining your balance throughout the whole swing. I see a lot of people either get to the outsides of their feet, either way, their feet move too much laterally, they fly out, their foot comes off the ground. It is really important that once you get your feet set they don't really work all that much. Your left foot is going to come in a break in just a little bit, but more importantly you are really maintaining your balance on top of your feet. You don't feel your feet roll to the outside that much. Your left foot is going to roll a little bit to the inside on your backswing, on your downswing your right foot does not actually come up, it actually rolls on the inside a little before it gets to the toe. You don't want your right foot to fly up too early or it is going to throw your body out of balance. You want to keep your feet on the ground and let your body pull your feet where they need to be. A really good finish position is after you made a golf swing, left foot flat on the ground, right toe on the ground, but there is no wobbling, there is no foot or toes coming off the ground. When you make a swing try to keep your feet planted on the ground. Let them move a little bit but don't let them move too much where you are swaying to the outsides. Where it is going to cause bad balance in your swing. What you want to feel looks something like this. Remember, keep your footwork quite. Let your right foot kind of roll into your left. your right knee is going to roll into your left, it is not going to come out and fly out here too early, and remember, hold that finish position for good balance control.

Importance and Execution of Pitch Shots Pitching is the most important part of the golf swing, so practice it and not only will your short game improve but also your full swing
Find Your Correct Swing Plane Analyze your ball’s flight to determine if you have the correct swing plane
One-Plane Over-the-Top Cure If you commonly come over the top and slice the ball the one plane swing is a great solution because you are bent over more and naturally attack the ball from the inside.
