It’s OK to lift your left foot off the ground a little. And current players such as Bubba Watson do it also. Lifting your left heel up will help you rotate your hips for a bigger turn in your backswing.
Also the question is, is it OK to lift front heel in backswing? Letting your left heel come off the ground during your backswing can help you make a full turn. I’ve always let my heel rise because my trunk is not as flexible as some golfers’, and I have a long backswing. Other players can keep the heel on the ground and complete a fully coiled shoulder rotation—either way works.
In this regard, how do I stop my front foot from lifting in golf?
Subsequently, does front foot move golf swing? Physical limitations cause some players to move the front foot while others are able to maintain a flat front foot throughout the entire swing. During a fundamentally sound golf swing the front foot stays down through impact. The correct weight shift places 75% to 90% of your weight on the front foot at impact.

Should I flare both feet golf swing?
A good immediate solution that GOLF Top 100 Teacher Nick Clearwater suggests is flaring both of your feet. “Turning your toes out about 20 degrees — maybe even more — effectively makes you more flexible,” Clearwater says.
Do you push off back foot when coming down on backswing?
Is a flatter golf swing better?
On the contrary–a shorter, flatter swing is much easier to keep on-plane than a longer, more upright swing. You’ll make fewer compensations on the downswing and hit the sweet spot on the clubface more often, producing greater ball speeds and bigger drives.
Should I stand taller when hitting driver?
What happens if you stand too tall in golf swing?
If you stand tall, you can get a better angle at the ball and increase your spin with impact. Your swing will give you spin and the proper angle when you hit the ball if you stand tall to hit the ball.
Should your weight be on your heels in golf?
Your weight should be 50-50 on your left and right legs and between the balls of your feet (those cushioned pads just below your toes) and your heels. I’m surprised how many people think their weight should be supported by their toes. Starting with your weight too far forward is one of the worst mistakes you can make.
How important is weight shift in the golf swing?
A: Transferring your weight is so very important in all sports, especially in golf. When you make your backswing you are creating torque in your body, so your weight will move to the inside of your right foot. When you finish your swing your weight will move to the outside of your left foot.
