Phil's 3 Quick Fixes

Fix 2: Weight moved back
This one's a bit more subtle, but dramatic in its consequences nonetheless. Our sources indicate that Harmon has moved Phil's weight from his toes slightly back to the balls of his feet at address. The whirling flourish of hips, legs and arms seen in previous Mickelson swings has been replaced by a more stable turn through the ball with more of his spikes in contact with the ground. There's less weight on his right heel through impact because there was less of it on his toes at address. The new Phil is tighter (check the distance between his hands and thighs) so he can release the club with his body, not with his old flip move with his hands.
