Josh does a monthly Q & A session: http://boggspga.com/questionsforjosh/
How to achieve lateral hip slide-after you get to the top of your backswing, and you start to swing the club down, Josh is a big proponent of laterally moving your hip to your left (if right handed) and have weight forward on impact. Use an alignment stick.See episode 6 on his website for the full tutorial
After you’ve conquered the lateral hip motion, then you can start to add speed.
Be set up to the golf ball, bump your left hip out before taking a swing, then take a very small swing (a little less than a half swing)-the distance you hit it will surprise you!
It’s not just about the quick tip or a how to do a drill; it’s also about the “why”
When you shoot down-the-line vidoes, make sure it’s at the same height and angle every time
