You could try placing an umbrella / alignment stick in the ground so it's just next to your back hip. Then when you make your backswing, try not to touch it with your hip.

I would say don't move back at all. Stay centered... but push your weight into the inside of your back foot. Other than that it should feel like you're twisting in place (at least it works for me)

I would try reading up on the S&T; swing, starting here at TST. It emphasizes keeping your weight forward and gives maximum payoff on iron play.

As onephenom said, keep the weight to the INSIDE of your back foot. I have seen guys put a golf ball under the outside of their back foot to get the feeling of keeping the weight inside. Do that, and the hips will take care of themselves, hopefully.

Great tip, was that ben hogan? You can also use a piece of 1x4 instead of a golfball, its a little easier to work with.

Actually, where I first saw it was Woody Austin on a Nationwide tour event driving range back in the 90's.  A 1x4 works fine, as does the grip of another golf club laid down perpendicular to the target.  Anything to get that feeling of the weight never going to the outside.
