Common misconception about weight distribution can lead to poor balance

Balance is a common understanding in any athletic endeavor, basically the better the balance the better the swing.  If we can remain in our swing center from start to the finish the swing motion can move freely.

Your center balance at address begins slightly right and under the ankles. This is because of the slight upper body tilt to the right. Mid way back it moves right and back towards the heel. Its critical to hold the tailbone left as your arms move vertical. As you reach the top of back swing and start your transition it moves left back to the left center point.

As your hands reach their low point in downswing the weight has transferred to the ankle of the left foot and turns into the left heel to complete the finish. Notice the footwork is very quiet and feel the weight roll in the ankles.
