    Paul – It’s fairly straightforward to feel your lower body swinging the club in practice swings but less easy in the actual swing. Even when I end up in the correct follow through position, I’m not sure if my hips led my arms or vice versa. Any thoughts on this?
    Thanks for the great instruction -

    Paul, your “favorite drill” is huge. I have now adopted it as part of the my pre-shot routine, trying to recreate the same feeling during the shot. The result is, indeed, gaining distance and constancy. The down part is, of course, changing distances and over shooting the green when using 7 or 8 irons for approach.

    Question, though, should I apply the same drill or “feeling” to shorter pitches? While to margin for error with long clubs is wide, it is trickier with wedges, which has been causing me to tighten up.

      Glad you like my favorite drill. Hopefully, everyone else will too. It can do so many things to help the swing.

      The feeling with pitches is to turn our belt buckle left of the target so it is a different thought although it is the same move yet abbreviated.

      This is also explained in my short game video series.

    Hogan was saying the same thing:

      Funny how people still tell people to pull the arms down to start the downswing. Hopefully, with Hogan and other teachers such as myself focusing on the body we can get everyone using it to hit the ball. I will just keep doing my part.

  4. Paul ,I have an issue with my backswing ,which is More or less related to the hip rotation .I do rather succesfully your “POWERLESS ARMS + HIP FORWARD TURN” move ,but I exp

    • Raymond,

      Just do practice swings in front of a mirror looking for the whole clubshaft above your head with every club. This is a visual thing. You should see the whole shaft. If you look up and your head is blocking out the shaft so you can’t visually see the whole thing then you are not up high enough. Keep doing this and it 2 weeks your arms should be trained to go up higher. Give it a try.

  5. Hey Paul,

    Love all your favorite drills I am doing them everywhere even in my sleep!

    But I need another drill!

    I do not know what controls the take-a-way distance from my ball moving back before it begins to rise up and around my body to a set position that will give me a chance to get the club head on a ninety 90 degree track.? I fell like my left arm is extending to an almost straight position and my right elbow is moving away from my hip? If I lock my right elbow or attempt to slide it around my right hip I loose the feeling of powerless arms?

    Help needed!

    Best Jay Jay

gam-golf-140Last week I was fortunate to get together with the resident pro for a company called GAME GOLF.  This is a new GPS stat tracking system.

This system is worn on your belt an communicates with tags that are inserted into the grips of your clubs.  More and more tour players including: Graeme McDowell, Lee Westwood and Jim Furyk are using this same device.

Tracking your stats is a great way to help lower your scores and see your progress over time.  Using the GAME GOLF stat tracker will allow you to know exactly how far you are hitting your clubs, distance hit, left or right, long or short percentages and much more!

I have posted a video of me using this amazing new product on the course.  It is not cheap but as you know I only promote product that will help your game.  I highly recommend this product.
