    sHi Paul,

    It’s starting to sink in! I was riding with the longest golf ball driver in our swat.
    I hit an almost perfect drive a little left but solid. My finish was perfect and I could feel my body turn. He hit a big drive down the middle with a slight draw. Everyone commented how huge his drive was. As we were approaching our drives he was heading to the left rough where my ball was and he commented how he blew past me by 20 yds. As we got closer I could see my ball was ahead of his. I out drove his good drive by 5 yds. Still a lot of work to do but I’m getting close. I practice hours everyday, hitting balls , chipping and putting. I know this training is working. I use to hit effortless with swinging my shoulders. Lower body wood kick in but not like it’s doing when I swing with your lower body move.
    Playing tomorrow cant wait to see if I have a better swing. We are having exceptional weather here in Pittsburgh for this time of year. I’m in FL for all of March staying at a private club with full membership privileges. Between now and end of March I plan on having a solid golf game. Sorry for the lengthy comments!

    Thank for your help,

      I love stories like that. I had a similar thing happen to me many years ago. Great feeling.

      Just stick to the plan. It gets exciting which can lead to hitting harder and harder. If this happens slow back down to 50% and build it back up.

    To get the stable base, is it a good idea to feel the knees pointing forward going back? Feels like it is way easier to start down with minimal movement in the lower body.
