    Hi Paul. The last few tips have been great, especially now that here, in central Canada, the courses are now closed. In getting ready to golf in Arizona this winter, I am practicing in the garage. Arms off, touching my legs and the shaft ending at the back of my head is all going quite well. I am well in balance. There is no ball to hit and I have a small carpet on the cement floor to protect my clubs. The problem with my going from A to B is that my club will, too often bounce off the floor, especally with my fairway wood. It’s better if I think of starting my turn a little sooner. I also noticied that in turning off my arms I sometimes have a loose left hand grip on my back swing. If i concentrate on the grip, this helps too. Do you have any other solutions to what is obviously fat shots or hitting the ground before the imaginary ball? (I am obviously doing something wrong and not in sync).

      Gerry,

      Just hold the club off the ground a little to do your practice swings. You are right, getting off the back foot makes it better. This is because fat shots are caused because you have too much weight on your back foot through impact.

      Sometimes I brush the ground sometimes I don’t. I really don’t even think about it. All I am thinking about is going from point A to point B. Just keep doing the practice swings holding the club slightly off the ground and you will be fine.

      You definitely need to be holding onto the club yet keep your wrists loose as you swing the club. I just did a tip on this here:

        Thanks for this Paul. i did view your Secure Grip Loose Wrists tip. Quick qhestion: Is your grip presure always at 8 out 10 through out the whole swing? Thanks again.

          Gerry,

          Yes, every full swing I take I am holding onto the club with this secure grip pressure while keeping the wrists loose.

    Paul, I would like to know where in Arizona Gerry Carriere plays golf during the winter months. I live in Arizona and would like to play and practice with others who are following your teachings. The golf pro at our club has heard me speak of you and your method of teaching the golf swing. He recently watched one of your video clips on the internet. He liked what you said so much that he began to talk to me about your approach. I loaned him my copies of your DVDs and book. I have been away for he past month, but will be returning to Arizona at the end of the week. I hope to work some with him, but it would be great to meet other students following your teachings.

      Peter,

      I will send Gerry a message so keep your eye out for a response. Thanks for the promo to your pro. Glad he and I are on the same page.

    Paul have been working on the point a to point b drill not much luck. Today during my walk I kept saying turn the shoulders set the wrists rotate the hips a&b. At the range today I shortened that to turn set rotate and it started to come together. The club just went along for the ride it was great.

      Billy,

      It’s almost the same thing. Just touch your head at the end and you’ve got it. Now keep doing it.
