    Wow, I’ll be trying that drill as soon as my wrist heals up. Seemed to have injured my forward wrist. But, that drill looks great!

      Rick,

      i have done this with quite a few students in the past. Never thought to video it. Works well.

    OMG!!! Seeing the Before and After is golf life changing.
    I have put the drill into my preshot routine. I have taken your advice to stop beating balls and practice getting my wrists fully hinged. It still amazes me how natural that hinging happens in the drill THANK YOU!!

      John,

      Glad you liked it. See how tight you were? In no way were you in position to come down. Glad you see it and will be working on it. This is a game changer.

    This drill is a game changer Paul! Thank you so much. Here’s an interesting question have we all gone down the wrong path getting fit for ridiculously light shafts? I’m thinking maybe. I would love to find a fitter who would be committed to fitting heavier shafts. This may be wiser than using my big Bertha Irons with super light steel fiber 70 shafts. I practice sometimes with an old set of mizuno mp 14 blades from the early 90s. But Every time I play with them it’s a disaster.

      Ben,

      Yes, you definitely need a good fitter. Are they fitting you will light shafts because you need them though? I like feeling the weight of the club. Light steel is trying to replicate graphite which does tend to give people more distance. I would find something you are happy with and stick with it. Maybe it is normal steel shafts with a bit more forgiving head. Sounds like you like that type of club. Get them off of ebay for next to nothing.

    Thanks Paul, I have a great fitter and I was fit 2 years ago when I was a 25 hc and weighed 60 pounds more than I do now. Now I’m a much fitter 13 hc . What I did today as an experiment is put some Lead tape just below the grip of my 7-iron, about 10 g worth and I really like the feel much better. For me, A heavier club feels better if you are swinging with your lower body. A lighter club feels better if you are swinging with your hands and arms.

      Ben,

      I like that test. Great way to feel a heavier club. You are starting to become a better player so yes, heavier may be better for you. I definitely like heavier. Then I can feel the head and let it swing wherever it wants.

    This drill works well…tried it today. It also helps with doing the effortless swing. This is one you should definitely do to help with “relaxing” the arms, taking them out of the swing. Thank you for this tip!

      Paul,

      Good stuff. Glad you liked it. Once you get it just don’t touch the back on the neck.

    Thanks Paul the experiment is a smashing success.
    I now theorize that many of us are being fitted for clubs that are way too light. Yes they are much easier to swing with your hands and arms, But that’s not what we’re trying to do anymore now is it 🙂

      Ben,

      You could be right. I would think they will do anything to get average players to hit it better. The last thing they ever try is fixing their swing.

    It really is incredible Paul- with the added weight, for the first time today ( How long have I been working on this?) I actually hit a few shots with powerless arms. Your club can’t “feel heavy” if it ain’t heavy.

      Ben,

      Good stuff. I have been teaching this to students for a couple of years now but decided out of the blue to record it. Glad I did. Seems a lot of people are benefitting from it.

    Wow this is awesome
    I played a round with a gentleman once Who swung the club with a bent left arm. His accuracy and distance blew me away he told me that the reason my shots were all over the place was because my left arm was too rigid .
    I’m going to the range today to try this new drill out

      John,

      The arms need to be extended at address then the lead arm extended at impact. If so, you maintain the arc width. If you force it straight you will most likely tight up causing the chicken wing.

  9. Are the training shafts with the cylindrical weights at the end of the shaft designed to help instill lag in the swing?
    Just touching the neck with the shaft of my club seems much easier and far less expensive.

    • Jonathan,

      I think you are thinking of Speed Sticks or something like that. Yes, why not just do my positions and fix your swing. A great swing will hit it plenty long.
