Dariusz -

My hips are open only 10-20* at impact and a lot of that has to do with physicaly issues in my back/hips. When I take my left foot back about 4-5 inches at setup (hips parallel with target line) I don't over-rotate as much and I can get my hips to open A LOT more (closer to 30-40* range like tour players).

Much, much harder for me to draw the ball with my left heel so far back.

Your general thoughts would be appreciated.

Hello CWD, nice to meet you again !

I apologize for a delayed answer, first of all.

Let me understand well the scenario. You say when you take your left foot back about 4-5 inches at setup (hips parallel with target line) you don't over-rotate as much and I can get my hips to open A LOT more (closer to 30-40* range like tour players). Do you want to say that your feet line is open and hips square, yes ?
If I understood correctly, nothing is weird here. The more open the feet line is the bigger is the room for the rotation of the rest of the body going from the feet up. However, this scenario is not compatibile to the SPC concept since placing feet this way makes it practically impossible to find an automatic sequencing of joints working like in a chain of events. What I mean is there must be torques created so that meeting the RoM of a given joint literally induces the other (being another part of the chain) to behave as it is desired. Open feet stance will not guarantee this sequencing (will not induce ankle and knee joints to be a part of the sequencing). In the diagonal stance, to help not very flexible golfers to be more open at impact is adding a substantial amount of the lead foot flare angle -- while rear foot is being droven back diagonally.

Have you experimented with various flare angles of the lead foot ?

Cheers

The lead foot way back didn't work last night. My body was unstable.

I'll work on the flare. I can handle a little lead foot back, but not the level that I was at. Almost fell over with the driver. Smile

My researches proved beyond any doubt that it is much easier to end with an open pelvic section (and, thus, with slightly open torso as well) with lead foot flare even with a closed feet stance (as exactly in the diagonal stance concept) than with feet line open and lead foot closed or neutral.

I do not know if it will help tyou what I wrote but, at least, you should experiment with it in detail.

Cheers

Hello
Are there some exercises which can help to come out of this situation? I have seen many people struggling with this type of pain.

I am sorry, I am not familiar with any specific excercises to help with increasing the RoM of particular joints or ligaments except normal stretching excercises. The best is to consult either an orthopedist or fitness instructor.
What I am doing here is just discussing a model.

All the best,
