Swaying

 
At address the right knee is bent equally with the left. But, as the backswing progresses, the right leg straightens up and accepts the weight which is placed on it as the golfer turns away from the ball. What this solid right leg does is act as a sort of brace against a lateral movement of the body off the ball- and this lateral movement is the deadly sway, which can ruin any golf shot. By making the right leg solid on the backswing, the golfer finds it easier to turn or pivot. But whatever you do, don’t make the mistake of locking your right knee on the backswing. Keep it bent, even if only slightly. If you lock it, you’ll never get it unlocked in time to make a proper downswing.
