  1. When doing this drill, what do you think of the notion of the lead shoulder moving away from the chin?

  2. Paul,

    When you say move your belt buckle to initiate the downswing and maintaint the lag angle, can the same motion be accomplished by straightening the left knee? In other words would straightening of the knee occur too early in the swing or would that initiate the proper downswing?


    • This was just a drill to get the person feeling the lower body moving instead of whacking at it with the arms. If you go to straighten the left knee just make sure at the point where the left arm is parallel to the ground in the downswing both knees are still flexed. They would be because in this short period of time your belt buckle would have only turned back to the ball. I just don’t want you overdoing it and getting this leg too straight too early. Remember, this leg is not locked until the through swing when the right arm is parallel to the ground.

It's funny ... many years ago I took lessons at some of the best schools in the world.  This was when I was wintering in Orlando.  Once I got back to Canada, I had no way of having my teachers watch my swing to make sure I was doing the swing positions exactly right.  

Not knowing if I was doing things right or not would drive me crazy because not doing it exactly right was a waste of my time (I hate wasting time).

I don't want you wasting your time.  This is why I started offering Skype Lessons to former students, members and Swing Machine Golf followers.  Now there's a way (through Skype) we can see your actual golf swing.

For $39.95 or less, you can finally stop guessing and doubting yourself.  We'll explain what you are doing and what you need to be working on to develop a great golf swing.

If you're serious about developing a great swing please start taking Skype Golf Lessons with us today.
