This is a great way to find out precisely where your balance is – not only in your set up but throughout your swing. Remember, EVERYTHING in your body and swing react to the center of gravity and balance points and by staying in balance, your swing will have much less hiccups. Imagine the tightrope walker on the high wire. As he moves his balance points as he walks, the balance pole will counter balance and react. The golf shaft reacts very similarly in your swing.
