I've found dragging my toe a bit helps to keep me from rotating my hips to early and just spinning on my heel. I never understood how to pull with my hips before I started dragging my toe.

Weight back, drag should be more on top the toes.

Missed my edit window: i can bet that on full power shots the people that use their weight well their back foot comes totally off the ground for a split second then the outer edge of the foot starts to drag as a counter balance.

the instep of the foot really shouldn't drag all that much. if it is then your back hip is never being utilized.

I don't really think dragging the toe helps or hurts I used to do it but just trained myself not to because I was tired of tearing up my shoes

I think if it helps or hurts depends on the thrower. I tend to associate toe drag with forehand shots.

if I hear someone drag their toe my first instinct is to watch and see if they are following through. Typically they are not. These people often throw flippier drivers and hyzer flip their shots. Yes, I will make suggestions.

Last weekend when someone stopped their motion on the tee another player said "good stop". I asked what was a "bad stop". A few holes later when another player dragged his toe and made an early release hyzer shot I remarked "that is a bad stop".

Chris, this is a good thought because I believe it is what I need to figure out. Please elaborate. Let me know about what "not completely following through" means. Pm me if you feel it better -- or start a new thread so I don't hijack.
