Golf Channel Academy Lead Coach Kelley Brooke compares golfers to other athletes to demonstrate how to coil effectively in the backswing.we can't get back to the front foot. Image a baseball or softball player . What they do is they spend a lot of time digging into that sand and that dirt at home plate . They knock that rear knee in so that they can uncoil the hips. The same things in golf. We always need to try to coil against that rear leg so it's easy to make that transition to the front foot. So the easy way to do that is to set up by knocking your knees in. And during the backswing, just pay very close attention to your weight, never rocking to the outside of your rear foot. If that doesn't work, what we'll do is, we'll take a golf club . You'll set up to the ball. And what I want you to do is, I want you to step on your grip.
