Because my footwork is subpar, I find myself hitting shots off balance or hitting it awkwardly. The single biggest thing that is the difference between hitting a decent shot when you are off balance or a crap shot is the weight transfer.
Even when out of position, move your weight from one foot to the other. Helps so much more than you can think
