Thank you so much for this. I came online specifically to look at this topic and found your article. I have battled my whole life to keep my feet squared when I have pretty profoundly flared or duck feet naturally. The sliding front foot has always compromised my accuracy as it is impossible to know at what exact moment the slip would occur. Can't wait to get out onto the range, let my feet get into their natural positions and see how it all feels. If this is a position that actually has benefits instead of drawbacks, this could make my swing so much more consistent and reliable. Thanks again!
