  1. Hi Paul, Just lucked out and got two golf shafts the other day. Will definitely try this drill. One comment and one question. Comment first, my game has been improving steadily with your help. I discovered that when extending my arms at set-up, I was not as loose or powerless enough in the beginning and consequently not as powerless as I thought. What a difference it made when I set up totally powerless to my swing. I also just realized that I am not focusing on the ball anymore. Now the question, is there ant chance Paul Wilson golf shirts are available for sale?

    • Yes, the arms should be extended but not tight. I’m glad you caught this because if you start out tight how can you keep them powerless throughout the swing.

      Not sure about shirts. I was thinking about this. I will let you and everyone else know if I do. Thanks. I think Ignition Golf shirts would look cool.

      • HI PAUL, YOUR ARE SO RIGHT ABOUT THE ARMS. AND I AGREE IGNITION GOLF SHIRTS WOULD LOOK COOL BUT IN RED ONLY
        THANKS MIKE

    Straightening the right leg (for a right-handed player), starting the moment the downswing begins, is an excellent tip. Turning the hips or belt buckle, or pushing off the instep of the right foot, don’t automatically prevent sway. Straightening the leg does, because it creates a pivot right from the top.

    My problem is excess motion in my backswing and downswing. My bad shots (especially pulls and pull-fades) occur when I don’t rotate properly. So this is an excellent vid for me.

    Thanks, Paul.

      Will,

      Glad you liked it. Need to keep it tight and simple going back for sure. See that backswing as setting it up to go the other way.

      Coil, load and hinge.

    this is great paul. re: your indoor practice series….i worked out an indoor version for this lateral motion tip at the gym with two foam rollers and standing in the mirror with a club or the Momentus traveling club. these would be 36 inch rollers. works well!

      Craig,

      Good idea. I have one of those. Tried to kill a bug with it last night. Now I have another use for it.

      Craig,

      With your swing people will ask you where you got it. Great swing. Hopefully, you’re numbers are starting to show it.
