O.K. BELLY BUTTON. I GET IT. BUT SHOULDNT ALSO THE BUTT POINT AT THE LINE OF FLIGHT TOO?

The grip is pointing at the target in the downswing at parallel to the ground. Keep in mind this is a drill working on your wrist hinge. You are not trying for perfection. You are trying to loosen your wrists.
Great tip again Paul! I have been practicing the manual release a lot and I have increased distance significantly. My question here is that I feel that there are three types of release that may alter ball trajectory and flight. One is the release I think you are doing (and the one I’m practicing) which is the palm of the right hand is as if you we’re trying to shake hands. The second one, if I’m trying to hit draws with the driver is to have the hand releasing with the right palm down to the ground. Finally, when bunker play or even high shots (sometimes fades or even slices) with the right palm pointing to the sky. Is this approach correct or should I only be thinking of one type of release?

Glad you are seeing results while working on the release. You don’t have to do all these releases to hit these different shots. If you do you now have to practice 3 swings. All you have to do is change your setup. Then you can do your normal swing and hit all 3 shots. Way easier.

been working on your method for about 3 months(no arms,axis turn,w/proper setup)i’m 62 and been playing for about 35yrs.I use to either solid pull 30-50yds or block right.Now i’m hiiting the ball online(if I get the turn right)But wth the shorter clubs i’m having a hard time making solid contact(i’m a large guy with a big waist)any suggestions?
You only have one swing and 13 clubs. Usually when people are having problems with shorter clubs they are setting up wrong. If you set up too low with these clubs you will change your swing. Even though the clubs are shorter you still need to do the same setup (tall). The wrist angle changes to accommodate the shaft length.

Paul – been making great progress over the last year or so following your method. I know you emphasize powerless arms, but wouldn’t it be OK to tell people that their forearms need to rotate (or roll) to perform this drill. It may seem too obvious, but it took awhile for me to become consciously aware of this motion that needs to take place as I worked through the process of not hitting with my hands and arms. Love your site.
Glad you like the site. I appreciate it.
Early in the tip I talk about seeing the butt going back and the butt on the way through. You cannot do this unless the wrists roll. Plus you cannot do the butt to the belly button thing either unless the wrists roll. So doing the drill should have this occurring.
I have done tons of other tips on the wrist roll over.
