    Hi Paul,
    I have noticed something in my practice swings and an courious about your thoughts. First turning my arms off has been one of the toughest things for me, and I have not perfected it yet. However when I have really turned them off and just my body rotation turn them I find I have a slight bend in the left arm as you do. When my left arm is straight it seems as if I have activated the arms muscles and everything is too tight. Your thoughts?
    Thanks, Mike

      This is why you want to keep a bend in the arm as did Jack Nicklaus, Faldo, Couples etc. I don’t know why everyone feels they have to keep this arm straight. I say it should be extended but not locked. It does need to be straight at and past impact.

    After watching Ernie win The Open I found a slo-mo video of him on youtube – what did I see but pure Paul Wilson – he does exactly what you teach! Thanks for all the advice – it is really useful and doable – and yes the game is improving slowly. All the best Julia

      Thanks Julia. Yes, Ernie is a great model. Feel the body doing the work not the hands and arms. Glad you are improving.

    Hi Paul,
    I think Ernie Els is a great example but are there any other modern day or yesterday pros that are good examples of your method?

      Louis Oosthuizen would be an even more perfect example. I also like Rory (slower though) and Tiger in 2001-2003.
