    Default both feet 90degrees to target line.

    I have notice more and more tour pros have both feet 90 degress to the target line on all shots, short and long.. Does anybody know what the advantage to this is ?

    I noticed that too. MJ has talked about the advantages of this in some of his videos...apparently its more biomechanically stable...

    yes-now the left foot is pointing at the target line as opposed to turned a little like Hogan has in his book.

    I also notice the width of many pros feet are not very far apart.

    I like this position for many reasons.

    It is easier for the golfer going through impact to not over orate their pelvis and to apply reverse rotational torque too the ground.

    Thanks. That was crystal clear.

    i think how turned out the left foot is also depends on the internal rotation mobility of the lead hip of that player...it's a trade off between the extra snap in the kinetic sequence vs whether you can get your body open enough at impact for your particular swing.

    Tiger played this way for many of his early years. Maybe it's not so healthy!
