An email came in from one of our instructors in Australia, Ken McKay. Ken talks about a person walking up and asking about his swing as he was practicing. Turns out the person followed us here on the site, but he had a problem - Reverse tilt. Reverse tilt is one of the biggest problems in mainstream golf today. Reverse tilt will guarantee a bad swing and a bad shot.

Ken observed his swing and yes the reverse tilt was there. The cure, PLHR, the person was not pre-loading heavy right and getting behind the ball. PLHR instantly fixed the reverse tilt!
