As featured on Golf Channel's “The Golf Fix” with Michael Breed, GolfTEC's Andy Hilts shows you a great drill to help increase shoulder turn and tilt in the backswing, creating an inside-to-outside swing path and more distance.

The Daily Variety says:

So I was just hitting balls into a net with my right foot dropped significantly back. I had more power. Much more swing speed. And hit the ball more solid. Why would a player not set up like this all the time?

Roy S says:

I play this way and generally kill the ball nothing wrong with playing this way I was a spinner before this really quiets my shoulders and hips down.

Philip Fourie says:

I find I hit the ball so much better with this diagonal/right foot back stance drill than the conventional stance due to a right hip problem. My problem is ball position…does the ball position need to move back a bit as I would assume the bottom of the swing arc had also crept back?

Anthony Lennen says:

I have been doing this drill with my driver, and I just freaking kill it. I am going to try it on the course tomorrow. It just seems to free up everything. There is no doubt in my mind It increases my swing speed. I hit these amazing high draws with this set up.

Thomas Fraser says:

For upper body dominant player with reactive lower body. Moving their trail elbow outwardly as opposed to inwardly for their backswing causes the player to tilt and turn their shoulders only 15 degrees causing an outside to in swing path that creates an OOT slice.

So yes starting to swing the club with the lead shoulder pushing the trail elbow inwardly allows each shoulder to turn at their full 20 degree range of motion. Then all the golfer needs to consciously do is to push their trail shoulder towards their target to creates the club head to repel their trail hand back with a better tilting and turning of the golfer shoulders and the preferred inside to out swing path.

i cant get an in to out swing without dropping my right foot back, as soon as I drop it back like 3 inches everything feels so easy

Jesse Fragale says:

When you drop the trail foot back, do you adjust the ball position. Bc it feels like it’s further away

Svingit Golf says:

I have started todo this because of lack in mobility. It was the fastest change that I have done that works directly on course. I put my right foot about halv way back of my left foot. Not as much as in the video. I can fade and dra the ball really easy. I get a greater turn.

I've watched dozens of golf videos over the years… this one ranks as one of the best! Easy to understand format. Thank you!

Kimo sabe says:

If 'the staggered stance is a great way to get you more on plane and stop your slice', then it should not be a drill- make it your normal stance.
