How to stop hip slide in your golf swing

How to stop hip slide in your golf swing? A hip slide is when the hips bump excessively towards the target coming into and after impact. This can lead to unsolid contacts and poor distance control, also if the hips slide instead of turning this can lead to the club head flipping over through impact as the hips will not clear out of the way.

Stop Hip Slide Front foot only swing

A nice way to stop the hip slide is by withdrawing the trail foot slightly and setting up with the majority of your weight on the lead foot, then perform some swings, what you will notice is that the lead leg will be much more solid, if it were to sway in this position you would more than likely fall over.
