That's funny, because I went back to doing this as well this week. In addition to some other things that has really helped (working on letting my writs hinge and relaxing my body, making sure my left shoulder turns down and in), I'm striking much better then before. Given the information that the 5SKs have put up, I except that I'm likely still shifting weight and putting more pressure to my right foot on the backswing. However, I FEEL as if I'm keeping my weight on my left, if not moving more weight to my left foot, on the back swing and then doing everything I can to get all the weight to my left by impact. Perhaps that's not what's happening in reality, but the feel has helped.
