Right foot pain ¶

What causes the ball of the right foot to be sore during or after a round? I'm guessing EE standing up, pushing off the right foot like you are sprinting?

Hmm, That's not a common place for pain from the golf swing. So I would definitely want to investigate the foot function to see if there is some underlying imbalance or dysfunction driving the pain. In order to really stress the joints, you would have to have quite a bit of early extension and big toe extension. So I would have my fitness/physio look at it.
The big difference with sprinting is the location of the knee puts the toes near end range of motion, which makes it take more of a beating with high force. So again, I'd look at the foot itself rather than the technique. You might also want to look at the golf shoes to see if you have a stiff enough toe box. If those check out, then it might be looking at technique, but you'd have to explore some real small details to try and solve that pain pattern.
