The exact definition of Balance is an even distribution of weight enabling someone or something to remain upright and steady. Personally I think this is one of the most over looked swing flaws for most players. If its one thing we can see week in and week out on tour is that the vast majority if not all tour players are balanced from start to finish.

Think of it this way, the club is a weight that you are swinging very fast away from a fairly fixed center. That weight by the laws of physics will want to pull away from the center or in this case you. If your body is not stable and balanced to start it will need to resist that pulling motion. If your sitting back on your heels at address the pull would be towards your toes and in order to resist that pulling the urge would be to pull back or standup.  If we started on the toes we would immediately resist the urge to be pulled forward . In order for you to have a sound golf swing you must remain balanced. One of the best ways I have found to work on this critical area is to take a foam roller and cut it in half. Standing with one foot on each while in your golf posture will give you a great feeling of what being in balance is all about.

Lastly, when hitting balls make it a priority that each and every swing finishes balanced and hold that finish position until the ball lands.  

Hopefully these tips will help you understand the importance of balance and just how to work on it.
