Ben Hogan's practice swings were characterized by a thoughtful two-step action. That is, he would step right, swing the club back, step left, and then complete his follow through. Ultimately, this is a great way to connect the movement of the feet (and lower body) to the swinging of the club. More specifically though, it is useful for feeling the sequencing of the lower body leading into the downswing. If you are a player who tends to become upper body dominant during transition, this is a great drill (and feeling) to exaggerate. However, be careful not to lunge too much with the upper body, as we still want to work on maintaining a centered torso during the weight shift.
