    Hi Paul. I notice you do not have a forward press or similar initial trigger for your swing. Do you feel such a mechanism is unnecessary if you properly start the backswing by rotating the shoulders?

    Thanks, Ron

      Ron,

      I bounce the club and kink my back knee. Once I do I am thinking of my lead shoulder. I am doing this to not start from a static position. I am okay with you doing either of these things. I just don’t like a forward press. People tend to press it too far forward de-lofting their clubs.

  2. I get what you’re saying for the full backswing to turn your shoulders 90°. when you hinge first for your short pitch shots how far do you feel your turn before you say you are set and ready to to turn your hips to start the downswing. In other words for other lesser shots when do you know enough coil has taken place? Thanks again for the great lessens!

      Bruce,

      You are not even thinking coil. You are thinking hinge. If you are thinking coil you are not thinking hinge. So don’t worry about the coil. It will happen when you hinge.

  3. Paul,Backswing and Downswing are connected to leg work:left knee pointing back in backswing ,right knee pointing left in downswing .
    These movements are ot apparent in YOUR own swing ,but are very pronounced with some players ,
    JIM FURYK has an unothodox swing ( Inverted loop) but demonstrates a lot OF leg movement .Hé showed it brilliantly in the BRIDGESTONE INTERNATIONAL.
    Do you disapprove leg work ?

      Raymond,

      Leg work is important. I like them stable going back. Your shoulders move the move. Why would you move your legs going back other than them following the rotation fo the shoulders? If you move to much you have not torque. In the through swing I have taught numerous downswing triggers. All of which have you moving your legs and hips. This is one of my main concepts.

      Robert,

      No. The are powerless. This means your body rotation is moving your arms. You are hinging due to the wrists being loose. When working on these things in the beginning you may be feeling the arms and working on certain positions. This is advisable as you master them. Once mastered, then you are focusing on coiling and uncoiling your body to hit the ball.

    Greetings Coach Thanks for the reply In my back swing my left heal does not come off the ground but my knee moves slightly inward /In watching your back swing i can’t tell through your pants if your knee moves. It does not look like it moves.
