As a feel.    It’s become so natural to slide my weight way on the back foot in the backswing, that feeling like the weight is on my front foot toes the whole time keeps things more even. 
 

though, as I keep doing it, I could see myself overdoing it the other way.  But, at least I’ll have an understanding of what too far each way feels like.     But, for right now, it’s working. 
 

but, honestly in that swing above, I honestly feel like I could pick my back foot up off the ground. Which surely isn’t right.

Right. That's why I had asked.

Or, to be more concise.   I know the hips have to go back a little in the back swing.   But they have to go forward, and even be more forward of where they started when you hit ball.    In that swing I feel like I moved a foot.   But, of course, I didn’t.

Bit of an update.   

Really working on simplifying as best I can.   No over-swinging, not trying to do too much.   Just straight back, straight down, hit the middle of the face.    Ball goes plenty far, even when I don't try to mash it.     Don't need to hit better balls, juts need to hit fewer bad balls.

    • I've been told in a couple of workshops that there are two kinds of officials.  There are those who have made an incorrect ruling, and those who WILL make an incorrect ruling.  As I read the definition of Stroke, if Pieters began the forward motion intending to hit the ball, and couldn't stop himself from hitting the ball, its a stroke.  if he decided during the backswing, its not a stroke.  A putt is an ingrained motion, back and forward, so I suppose its possible to decide during the backswing, but be unable to physically react quickly enough to halt the forward swing.  That seems unlikely to me.
    • Every time I want to get new clubs I just go for different shafts. Especially different weights. I own a set of Titleist 718 AP2. I have gone from factory white AMTs, to XP95, to Project X LZ 5.0, and now to NIppon 950GH. Every time I change shafts I feel its a totally different club. In my opinion, it is shaft weight that makes the most difference, not shaft flex.
    • AFter many years of playing I have concluded the driver is the most forgiving club, if you hit it right. My problem was a slice, no matter what I did. Until I saw this video about keeping the club head behind you.. Slice solved. Hope it helps.  
    • Found a pretty cool iron cover today on the course.   Got me thinking I could get a really kitchy set for my irons and wedges.    This might be a cry for help.   Very confused right now, welcoming replies to talk me down from the cliff.
