Paul, this is not exactly specific to this video, but a more general appreciation. After a month or so of being a member here, I am finding my ballstriking better than it ever has been. Because of the changes I am making (and being stubbornly dedicated to following through on), I have some difficulty judging just how far I hit each club, but yesterday on a hard course I hit 10 greens in regulation, which–well, let’s just say it is not a commonplace occurrence. Over the winter, I am devoting my time to locking in my putting and short game, so that my goal of breaking 80 can be a realistic one come next season.
So thanks a lot. These have really, really helped.

Thank you for the kind works and feedback. I truly appreciate it. Keep up the good work.
Watch this tip:
How Far You Hit Your Clubs: http://ignitiongolf.com/club-distance
Paul – You never say much about having hands in front of the ball with a flat wrist at impact. Is this important? Are you saying that a swing powered by the legs turning the hips will put the hands and left wrist in the correct position as we roll the wrists and impact the ball without having to think more about it?
This occurs doe to having the right fundamentals. If you are trying to do this manually you will not reach the release point in the swing. This is a point after impact where both arms are fully extended again in the golf swing. This is where mass reaches the widest point of the arc. This is also why I do not teach impact. If you are using physics to hit the ball you need mass to get to the widest point of the arc. At impact there is an angle between the lead arm and the clubshaft. This means impact is not the widest point of the arc so why would I care about it. If you allow the club to swing to the widest point it has to be squaring at impact.
I have done a bunch of tips on this here:

Paul – Further to my last, Ben Hogan makes a very big thing about a flat left wrist in his book. That’s the reason for my question.
I answered this below.
Forget impact. Focus on the release point after impact.

To second what Keith said above, thank you for all you do. I dropped about 10 stokes a round last summer by following and practicing your technique, and hope to be breaking 80 by the end of this summer.
I think this drill, in conjunction with starting the downswing with the legs and hips, is the the absolute key to your method; you find the center of the clubface consistently, and without imparting hook or slice spin. You can literally hit 200 yard drives, dead straight, with about 30% effort, just while practicing this drill alone.

Thank you for the support. I truly appreciate it.
Glad you are seeing results. I love hearing it.
This is a huge key for the average golfer. Most golfers wrists are way too tight. They need to loosen them up. This takes constant work but once they are loose it becomes a whole new game.
Absolutely. Being a member of Ignition Golf for the past year, and buying your Swing Machine book, is the best thing I’ve ever done for my my game. The importance of following consistently great instruction, from only one source, cannot be overstated.
Sort of unrelated: Who on the PGA tour do you think best demonstrates the qualities in the swing that you teach? I think, without question, it’s Brandt Snedeker. It’s uncanny. Halfway back, 3/4 back, at the top with the grapefruit sized gap under the right armpit, hips turned back to the ball almost immediately after beginning down, right heel off the ground at impact, arms fully extended a few feet past impact, touch the legs, left arm at exact 90 degree bend with the club splitting his ears, touching his head: all of these positions are exactly as you teach. Also, looks as though every swing is with about 60% effort.
Just curious your thoughts on this?
Glad you like my products. I truly appreciate the support and feedback.
I like a bunch of swings on tour. So many new guys now I can’t keep track of them. Snedeker is certainly a good model as well as Adam Scott. I really like Louis Oosthuizen, Goosen, Couples etc. etc.
