Sorry brooster, I don’t use the term “stay down”. I don’t know what it is used for, because the word “down” implies a “downward” movement of some kind, and we don’t have that in my method.

I guess if someone is coming up and out of their tilt, I might use, “Stay in your setup position” or “Stay Athletic” or “Turn your shoulders around your spine” or “Maintain your spine angle” until your back shoulder touches your chin* on the downswing.

I have used, in the past, “stay behind” if someone is sliding forward or coming up and out too soon on the downswing.

* Doing this must not restrict the body’s rotation in any way… like the worst tip ever “keep your head down”. The head must follow the shoulders up and out just after impact. The body unwinding from ground up, must be UNINTERRUPTED, accelerating to the finish!
