The Knees

Chapter # Four - The Knees

The Knees are flexed and positioned above the balls of each respective foot.

The LEFT KNEE starts flexed.
As the backswing starts, it is pulled slightly away from the target by the rotation of the left hip away from the target. At the start of the downswing it moves under the left hip, above the left heel, so that it can support the transfer of weight from the right side to the left side.

The RIGHT KNEE remains in its flexed position throughout the entire backswing and remains in this position until it is pulled forward by the rotation of the right hip to its follow through position above the left toes. This forward motion of the right hip pulls the right knee forward untill the right knee is above the left toes. At this position, the right knee and lower right leg are pointing down a line parallel to the target line.
