Hello Dariusz and all - hope all is well.
Very pleased with the way my golf is progressing and the more I studied your work Dariusz, the more I am understanding this wonderful game and your explanation of the body's requirements to try to generate the perfect or near perfect golf swing.

I mentioned that I went to an Australian golf pro a few years ago, who had a method called - right sided golf, mainly because my hips and pivot were not functioning properly.
That is now history and the diagonal stance has helped achieve a better pivot.
I also mentioned I bought the Pivot pro a product Jim McLean endorses, and have been working with that. What this great product has helped me with is to enable me to keep the flex and resistance in my right knee leg. I think assistance is similar as to when you say at address to have the right knee pointing in ( not sure of the correct terminology).

Now to my point, and apologies for the lengthy post. When I go into my back swing the right knee wants to twist to the right, when not mindful of that – by keeping the resistance, this can result in the resistance dissipitating and what resistance is left going the outside of the right foot. This has been a major problem of mine for years.

I have said Dariusz the pivot pro has helped highlight with this flaw and look forward to you take on my lengthy post.

Thanks again for your great work.

Hello John, nice to hear from you again, mate.

This post of yours is very important when it comes to understand the importance of the rear knee/ankle joint preset during the setup.
If you remember from many Hogan's (and not only his) vids, he tries to set the rear foot more perpendicularily to the target line letting the rear heel go out and trying to bringing the heel again - which will not be possible due to torque between spikes and grass; the process, however, puts torques on both ankle and knee joints so that the feel is that both joints cannot be externaly/outside rotated any more.
During the very motion the knee neither is able to turn outside more but also to collapse to the outside because the very process of detorquing that comes into force after the rotational limitation in both joints is being exceeded forces both joints automatically to move to the inside (targetwise).
On the other hand, simple bending the knee to the inside without preset does not guarantee that the knee won't bent outside since there aren't any natural physical limitations already reached (!). That is why the preset process is so important and, luckily, so compatibile with the whole Diagonal Stance concept - bringing the rear heel to the outside corresponds ideally with opening of the hip line, while attempt to bring the heel back corresponds with closing the shoulder line in relation to already opened hip line.
Hogan was a genius and we need to follow him closely - these who do not slowly drop to the category odf ignorants, alas.
