      If you have the thumb to the right of center, the thumb against the side of your hand and you see 2 knuckles the perfect amount of heel pad should be squeezed against the club. This is the whole point of doing it this way so you don’t have to judge how much heel pad to squeeze.

      Thanks! Also the idea of keeping the right leg flexed and still helped a lot – as do most else you teach!!!!

    Hi Paul.

    In the past the golf pro said I bounced up in my back swing. I cured that fault. I now coil and uncoil and do not have an upward seasaw motion thanks to you. I now have sense to go at a level coiling to he right foot’s instep and let the natural leverage and force generate the downswing’s shift and turn which you preach. To bounce up and down in my opinion ruins the rythm of biomechanical and kinesthetic nature of the back swing and the downswing generated at the right foot’s instep. :)

      Bouncing up and down is a real problem. This is a very inconsistent move because how to you come down exactly the same amount every time? Glad you got rid of it and are now coiling and uncoiling. Keep at it.

    Hey Pro, Having trouble with position of the right arm at the top of the back swing. Am I to straighten it out, push my wrist out or ?? It seem if I just let it happen I go to far, pass parallel which creates pushes and slices.

    This tip really helped me. I wasnt loading on the back leg much because I was focusing on getting my weight on my front leg better but actually putting weight on my right on my right instep I can better spring to my forward leg.

    So that is working great for me but could you explain more about lag and hitting down on the ball and having left back of hand straight (im right handed)? By that I mean no cupping forward wrist at impact. Im looking for that solid feel. Thanks.

    Paul. Can you help me with my drive. I am still coming down too steep most of the time. Do you think that I need to get my wt back on my heels more? At the start of the motion I am moving my wt back onto my back of my feet more. Any other ideas…………..

    Thanks bro.

    Hit an 80 the other day against my son who has a BIG drive. We tied due to my control.

      No you need to turn your arms off and start your lower body first in the downswing. Doing this right tilt your upper body behind the ball in the downswing and flattens the clubshaft. You are trying to hit. In doing so your upper body is leaning left in the downswing. Lean left and the club will swing down and left.

      So after explaining this you MUST work on turning your arms off. This will cause you to hit the ball shorter at first. KEEP DOING IT until you get used to it. This will get the arms out of the swing. Then and only then increase ONLY your legs and hips to get more power.

    Thanks Paul. I went out and tried today. Do I also have to make an effort to turn the right arm over so the club face straightens out. Without much effort the ball takes off to the right. So, no arms, but feel some power in right arm working or else the club face does not square…………
