by Q: I feel like I am falling backwards.....


Q: I am 28 and have been playing for about 10 years. My handicap is about 12 -14 and I am having a problem with my hips getting through the shot before my upper body ( I think). The end result is I am off balance at the finish of my swing. I feel like I am falling backwards at the end of my swing. What is wrong? Thanks,
  - Carl

A: Dear Carl,
Check your set-up and make sure your weight distribution is equal on each foot. Also make sure that your weight is near the balls of your feet. A good drill is to take two 4X6 boards and cut them into three foot lengths. Use one board as your foot target line as one and the other as a tee for your ball. Now swing easy as you're standing on one board and work on feeling your balance. After about ten swings begin to swing a little harder. Continue to feel your balance and if you're falling off make an adjustment so that you don't fall off. Now place a ball on the second board and try to hit it while maintaining your balance. Continue this drill until you feel comfortable. After you feel good about your progress hit some balls from the grass and feel the improvement.
