    Mike Austin recommends an extended but not locked right knee. Austin also has a huge sit down position in his downswing.

    Correct...NEVER locked!
    All you have is your hand path, the force along that path, and torque about that path.


    That's your means for creating the proper D-Plane with the proper speed, for the desired shot.

    Exactly what Homer says in 7-16.

    Knee lock is NEVER an athletic move in any sport.

    Lanny Wadkins rates right up there in middle iron play. He has less flex in his right leg than most and absolutely mashes mid-irons!

    Yes, the knee straightening isn't about the knee, but how the hips move and fire AT the ball (inside back corner).... it is easier to fire the right hip properly, because you are in the right place

    Recently, I got the tip to turn the right knee slightly inward at address. This was from the "Swing like a Pro" book. It would seem to promote the action that Redgoat is saying is ideal, which Davis Love III shows on his site at http://redgoat.smugmug.com/gallery/141697. Comments ?

    azgolfer,

    I like to see the right knee flexed and rotated at the top of the backswing. In most cases, I would rather see it start rotated open, as opposed to kicked inward at address.

    As you mentioned in your post, I love where DLIII ends up at the top, regardless of where he starts.
