Generally speaking golfers struggle to get the majority of their weight forward (under their lead foot) at impact.

Going by the PGA Tour stats, the Pros you see on TV each week have anything from 80-95% of their weight under their forward foot at impact. So in essence we need at least an 80-20 split between the front and back foot by the time we reach impact. Everyone’s a little different, but if you aim for at least 80% under your forward foot, your chance of a consistent contact every time improves.

To do this, the hips have to move towards the target on the downswing. This moves the mass of the lower body forward. This step drill is a great drill I use with some of my clients to give them the feeling of sitting/squatting to start the downswing and making sure the weight moves into their lead foot at impact.
