Thanks, ASh

That makes a lot of sense. The nearest foot has to turn to open up the hip.

For me I can always tell when I play well when I feel I arrive at my hitting stand with the correct (left) foot.

That's incredible, and a little dangerous for rec players like me, I would think. I prefer to land evenly for safety reason. But I understand the edge...
