I would be delighted to write a full testimonial sometime, but in the meantime I do have a question for you. It concerns the weight shift on the downswing: I understand very well the reasons for throwing the club head from the top, why this release cannot be delayed. I also understand that, assuming everything has been done correctly to this point, this throw will cause the weight to move towards the target - i.e. the spine pendulum must go back the other direction - in order for the body to maintain its balance.
My question to you is this: is this weight shift purely reflexive as a result of the throw, or is there a conscious effort to push the navel all the way forward? Are the two inextricably linked, or should there be a conscious driving forward of the weight before or after the throwing motion?
Many thanks in advance,
