Loosing balance

 
You can lock arm muscles, back muscles, leg muscles, knee muscles and muscles all over your body- all to the detriment of your game. By swinging and hitting freely you must surely feel the "pull" outward of the club head, as you go through impact. Golf is more like playing with a yo-yo than tensing up and attempting a thumping jolt. The habit of losing balance as we hit the ball is nothing more or less than tension. Common sense should tell us that if we respond to the pull of the club head it will take us naturally onto the left foot. My mentor Jack Coogan told me of a story that a friend had had the best lesson ever, while watching an elephant in a zoo, moving easily and lazily from side to side. He simply copied this and he freed up his swing. A great image to expel tension.
