Hi Dariusz, really getting a handle on this now and will soon be playing some great golf.

Can you please advise on set up, whether there is a definitive model with the SPC concept. In my set pre SPC days , I used to have my weight on the top half slightly tilted forward, this is catastrophic with the SPC because I cannot get the weight over to my right side correctly.

To get a good swing on the ball I feel I need to have my knees pushed forward and my tush under, this does feel a little uncomfortable, I suppose mainly due to doing the other for so long.

So I welcome your thoghts on set up and COG again Dariusz, because my set up looks nothing like Hogan's.
Thanks again D

Well, the SPC concept requires creating the firrm rear side from the ground up that's being done via positioning the rear foot more perpendicularily to the target line and ankle/knee joints presets. Thus, the first obligatory thing is to set the rear foot this way. The diagonality of the stance makes the rear hip go slightly higher than the lead one (opposite to the reverse-K position) and hips opening atowards the target line. If you leave your upper body now according to what happened with lower body parts - it is just what you describe, i.e. the upper body goes forward targetwise. However, during the process of closing of the shoulder line in relation to your hips (which is a part of the diagonal stance) the upper body receives an axis tilt per se that offsets both upper body leaning too much forward as well rear hip high position.
One should feel exactly as a runner whojust has taken the best position to start running fast and strong while using ground forces.

Let me know if I understood your question well and if my answer makes any sense for you.

Cheers

Thanks D - I suppose I should clear up my meaning of set up a little better. I have the diagonal stance etc, I supposed I meant more the cog aspect. I seem to have my weight more on my heels, there is no way a runner would take off in this position, it does work and I am playing good golf.
All I have to do now is have a set up routine that is repetitive and I am back, bear in mind I had a major changes to implement after having all my weight on the left side.

Thanks again D, appreciate your work.

John, IMHO a runner would have the weight set on lead heel and rear inner part close to balls of the foot. I do not know if you have already seen this section:

I would be anxious what are your thoughts about it.

G'Day Darius, spent a bit of time again with my golf pro friend yesterday. I have been mis interpreting a few things. As it turned out it has been an incorrect pivot I have been executing, instead of an across and back move, I have been lunging a little forward as you have alluded to having too much weight on my left side; an over throw from the left side golf days.
By counteracting that, what worked for me to a certain degree was keeping my weight on my heels.

After spending some time with John Furze - we worked on the correct pivot, with a posture that is an athletic and more conventional ala Hogan.

I will keep you posted and shoot some vision for your perusal.

Thanks again D.

That's great, John. I'd be delighted to see your swing motion when you're ready.

All the best, friend, cheers.
