I need to keep telling it to everyone because a lot of people want to run before they can crawl.

Hi Paul Great drills, use to slice the ball ,now only draws and hooks , ball sometimes starts off 5 ,10 yards off target line before draw or hook starts, is this do to not enough lower body,or too much roll over of wrist.I do not get many pushes to right,will it help if i try to get more tilt behind the ball as i start downswing.the draw 5-20yards very playable,and consistant ,the occassional hooks annoying. best shots when grip pressure very light 1,2 through out swing, is there any problem with keeping it this light through out swing. ( it keeps my arms from taking over)
If you are pulling it your arms are starting the downswing not your lower body.

If you are hooking it without trying to hook it you have a grip problem.
Paul, the thing that helps me most to do your swing method is your tip that the club should feel heavy. When I feel the weight of the club, I tend to relax my arms. Thanks for your tips!
That is a great thought. If the club feels heavy you cannot be using your arms. Now, you just have to keep this feeling.
This tip is just what I needed to get back on track. Lower body going faster than I was ready for and club being left behind with shots mostly pushed to the right. Thanks!
Seems this was a timely tip for a few golfers. Glad I posted it.

Your method has been a wonderful break though for me Paul. I have been working on the body rotation with the swing speed radar and I find this is an especially helpful feedback tool.
Just like you have said, when I feel like I am swinging fast; swinging with my arms, my swing speed is actually lower. When I use your method and swing with my body, I feel slower, but the meter shows much faster speeds — and the ball is traveling much further. In three weeks of work I have increased my speed from 85MPH to 95MPH with my driver while maintaining straight shots. Since I’m swinging easy now I am confident I can gradually get my speed even higher while maintaining good control.
I can’t tell you how grateful I am to you for the help. I had been trying weight training to increase my arm strength — now I realize how wrong that was. It is really great to finally be seeing real progress!
That’s great news. I guess this ties into my previous answer. The more you are lagging it the more power you are starting to generate. I would think you are getting this new found power due to loosening up the arms not because of the Orange Whip. Keep up the good work.

Hi Paul. I believe I read that Tiger Woods hurt his left knee by too violently straightening the left leg at the end of the swing. This happened under Butch Harmon. Your method seems to straighten the forward leg as a natural occurrence of rotating the hip in a circular motion. I don’t sense any violence in your swing or possibility of injury. Would you agree?
Sometimes my body takes over at the start of the downswing and I will start hitting crooked shots. Too much body turn from powering the hips and legs which then spins my body open and pushes the club to the outside, so I will swing across the ball and hit pulls and fades. The shoulders are opening too fast. Hence,the body races out of sequence, the arms lag behind, and the club cuts across the ball. Can you expand on the powering of the hips drill while mentioning how to better keep the shoulders in check to avoid getting so far ahead of the downward arm swing and stop hitting across the ball?
