Hello Paul — Chuck Thompson here, after being away for about a month; went to Europe on a World War II Trip — Normandy, Battle of the Bulge, D-Day, etc, etc. We think every American should make a similar trip to understand the importance of America’s participation in WWII. The trip was fantastic; hope you can go sometime, or maybe you’ve already done so?
In addition to that trip I went with 5 other fellas and played 4 rounds of golf at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail near Birmingham, Alabama. It was as terrific as it could possibly be! Great courses in great condition; fabulous greens; beautiful layouts, etc. And, I played pretty well. I even played the Links course at Grand National where I got a hole-in-one in 1995 — hole #2, 165 yards over water. A memory to last a lifetime!
Now I’m back and enthused about continuing my efforts to learn “your” rotational golf swing. It’s much harder than I thought it would be. I’m having trouble letting go – letting the club hit the ball without me using my hands to create the hit!!! I’m eager to study your videos of the last month and incorporate the techniques presented there into my swing.
Bye for now; I’m glad to be back. I’ll write more soon! Chuck Thompson

Sounds like a great trip. I will have to do it one day.
Golf sounds great too. I hear that Trail is quite the experience. Congrats on the hole in one!!!
Learning my swing is all about you telling yourself to hit the ball differently than you have ever done. It is the opposite but I guarantee that at some point in your golfing life you have hit a great shot farther than any other shot with a feeling of “nothing.” This is powerless arms. Now you just have to do it every time.
Powerless Arms – The Trust Factor: http://ignitiongolf.com/the-trust-factor/
I have some problems to feel the club heavy when approaching impact. This is so easy when I swing the club with one hand (left or right) then I can really feel the weight of the club, but this disappear more or less with both hands in the normal swing. Do you feel the club as heavy with 2 hands as with one ?
I feel the club heavy with all clubs with both hands. If you are not you are hitting with your arms. Your arms are like string. The club is a weight. To string, the club would be heavy stretching them both out fully. This means it would feel heavy as it swing. So you need to immediately start letting your arms stretch out.

DRILL: Another Way To Widen The Arc: http://ignitiongolf.com/drill-widen-arc/
I have tried to move the hips to start t he swing and for some reason I am swinging over the top. In turn I am pulling the ball to the right (many lost balls) I think when I am turning my hips I turn my upper body also . I do not see how one can turn one’s hips and not turn the upper body.
Any way I am doing it well and my scores are rising. Probably the scores are up my putting has been rotten.anyway
Maybe you can tell me what I may be doing wrong If not now I will see you in November.
Your body affects the direction of your shots. When you fire the lower body your whole upper body should be staying behind the ball. If so, this causes the club to swing from the inside. Although you are trying to use your lower body your whole upper body is tilting left in the downswing. Tilt left and you will start it left. So if the leg drive is supposed to tilt your body right in the downswing and you cannot do this then manually tilt your body right. If you do, you will see the direction change. Once you get the club swinging out at the ball tidy up the leg drive and the touch the legs position.
I have tons of tips on how to cur a pull which can be found by search the red navigation bar at the top of any page.
I will post them here:

Paul, Where can I find the “feelings series” tips on the net so I can o back & watch them?
I ask because I believe this is the best way for me to learn how to stop hitting the ball & just swinging.
