Here is part one of the stance taught by Mike Austin in detail:
“98% of the swing is in your stance and alignment. All the angles: Your arm angles; your angle of your spine; the angle of your legs in relation to your hips, so that you have yourself balanced . . .”
Don’t squat your knees. Maintain as much of your height as possible.
Standing erect, move your derriere backwards and your head moves down. You didn’t move your head independently.
What brings your head down, is the movement of your derriere.
Move the derriere back and let your head come down until the arms hang down above the tips of the toes.
That action gives you the proper angle of the spine.
Now, put your palms together.
