Been working on it Boat. Have a bad tendency to turn my slide foot right, which indicates balance and center mass. Have to slow down in practice and focus on that. Also, concentrating on getting the right leg out behind and left helps this.

When I was young, my heels would be hanging off the approach and my slide ended like yours after just 4 steps. Now, I take 5, end up 2 feet short but my slide foot is straight :-)

As for me I used to line up at the back of the approach, too, when I was in high school with my five step and high back swing. When I came back to the game, I did the same thing. Brought all my bad habits along with me.
Today I've moved just in front of the second line of dots on the Brunswick approach and still take five steps. I've worked on getting my backswing under control and to keep from reverting back to a full roller figure eight swing. It's very hard to do as one gets older.
Went for a practice session today and I did foul line drills and one step drills for the first two games. Next moved to practicing spare shots with my shiny urethane ball. The ball was coming off my hand pretty well today and had a good roll on every shot. Hope this continues... smile
