To find the correct right leg position place a stick vertically in the ground, or try standing next to one of your kitchen cabinets (any object that is waist high and allows you to lean over). Now stand at the address position so that the outside of your right foot is just touching the stick. Measure how many inches your hipbone (pocket area) is from the stick. Now make a full backswing. The shoulders do turn 90 degrees and the hips do turn 45 degrees... but the original measured hip distance must remain exactly the same throughout the backswing. It must never move closer towards the stick or farther away from the stick.
The greatest golfers in the world all have this one point in common. Their swings have slight variations but the angle of the right leg at the top of the backswing always remains the same. The angle of the right leg must be maintained to play great golf. The illustrations below show how to position the right leg correctly while maintaining the base of the spine "centripetal point."
