"Today I went to Steve Pratt for my first lesson to start working on my swing for the 2012 long drive season. Bruce Hamilton, who was Corey Pavin's instructor throughout his major victories and ranked top 100 teachers in the nation who tragically lost his battle with cancer this last year was my coach for the past 16 years. I have had assessments with other instructors throughout Southern California and Steve Pratt is the only one I have had a lesson with who I would compare as a world class teaching professional as Bruce. Let me put it this way, I have never swung with so little effort and had such long straight drives with that high CHS numbers. Also it was in one lesson. Thank you Steve - can't wait to see the future and am greatly looking forward to it. "

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,
