Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 23, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta SPOUTS Says: KEEP WEIGHT "INSIDE" A etaujr Seot golfer of yttrt _ �e by once uid that thoM who could' hold the body ttill �ad hit tht ball, would hit fir Ud true. That ttill applies, although it don need a bit of explanation. He meant that you thould Myer allow your weight to drift "oattida" your feet throughout the back- and downswing. Even after bejinninithefollow-throuth �o�r weight, uthan ghtraaiferred, thould remain within the width of your itanee. Thote who let weight drift to the outtide of the right foot on the backrwing will tway away from the target. Theclubhead it then thrown are out of kilter. When you let your weight go outtide your left foot early on the downtwing, you'll be moving toward the target and destroying the centrifugal force you need to up the ball. 1�7t NAU. Hn, %yn.
