Now, of course, the ensuing swing is a planted-heel modern action, but that stance is very mechanically sound for making a golf swing, as we all know.
This would certainly be the death knell for the Stack & Tilt models of swinging, because we all know that you can only look at the back of the ball and do that “touch-the-knee” thing from a right-tilted or right-biased stance.
