Right Leg. (
It is vital that both legs, but particularly the right leg,
remain in the original address condition of being slightly bend
throughout the back swing and the down swing movement, it must not
straighten nor must it be allowed to bend any further, the bend
in the leg that is adopted at the address position must be maintained
at all times.
The only movement the legs should make is as follows:-
During the back swing movement the left knee moves slightly
forward from the original address position whilst simultaneously
the right knee moves slightly backwards from the original address
During the down swing movement, the left knee returns to the
original address position before moving slightly backwards from
the original address position, whilst simultaneously the right knee
returns to the original address position before moving slightly
forward from the original address position.
This action prevents the body lifting and dropping as the hips
Therefore you must not allow the right leg to bend during the
down swing movement otherwise you will cause the whole body to dip
thus effectively increasing the loft of the relevant golf club in
your hand nor must be allowed to straighten.
