"I want to give a shout out to Steve Pratt. I had a great session with him and his Trackman radar device on Sunday. He is a Mike Austin disciple and he and I see eye to eye on so many areas of the swing and game, it was fun to collaborate with a like minded individual. Using the Trackman was gratifying in so many ways as it reaffirmed my entire view of the golf swing and also corraberated all of the issues I felt I had with my swing.
Steve is excellent in his understanding how to use it and uses the information to help you better “your” swing, not force you to just make the numbers better. It was great to have a fresh pair of eyes. I have added him to a small list of people I trust with my swing. My friend Bob Sockolich who works at GolfTec in Pasadena, Steve and myself.
This is an important post because I don’t want anyone to think I am such an arrogant tool, that I am the only person who knows anything about the swing. Bob and Steve get my highest recommendation if any of you are interested. I would put the three of us against Foley, Leadbetter and Haney any day of the week."

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,
