Pivot foot

Do you pivot on your heel or ball of your foot?

I pivot on my heel. Once I switched from the toe to heel pivot, my accuracy improved and my shots seemed much smoother. Every now and then I feel myself pivot on the ball of my foot and immediately know the shot is not going to work out well.

And staying away from the Planter Fasciitis. Shiz hurts, but after a few holes and a couple cold ones, it loosens up.

Pivoting on your toe is a great way to destroy your knee. I went to a couple of driving clinics put on by pros. I was pivoting on my foot. Both of them told me "if you want to have a knee to drive with in 20 years, you need to pivot on your heal." I didn't listen to them. I strained my MCL, and was out for a couple of months. I'm lucky I didn't tear it. Now I am learning to pivot on my heel. And, as a plus, my power and accuracy are getting much better.
