You was so right with this tip and mental thought. I find even after playing golf for 15 years that I was still holding the club to tight even though I didn’t think I was. What I do now is at the very top of my backswing I tell myself to relax and I can feel the tension leave my arms and I just follow through with my swing and it is amazing how the ball will just snapped off the clubface and go straight!
And of course the key is to make this the new and everlasting habit versus the old swing so thank you Paul take care.
I like this thought. This is also why I like a slow backswing. It gives people time to recognize if they are relaxed or not as well as giving them time to get the lower body moving in the downswing.
Keep up the good work.
Paul ,it’s more a mental”attitude “to ingrain in your mind than anything else .In reality ,If you want to put Speed in THE clubhead ,you do have to stretch ,then contract your muscle fibers ,but ,as you stress rightfully ,it’s not raw Power you exert .It ‘s like swimming:I was a top Free style 100 meters champion ,some 65 years ago:my swimming style looked easy and fluid ,and I went very fast ,skiimming over THE water ,not fighting it,but I CAN tell you I put in all I had!
Unfortunately ,I have great difficulties ,at
At 79 you are hitting it pretty well. As you said, you may not be able o physically turn any faster even though you want to. The Ultimate Swing Trainer and my tips have given you more yardage so I would be trying to use this to the best of your ability and focus on repeating this speed as well as perfecting any and all swing positions. Perfection = distance. Focus on swinging perfectly and you will get distance.

Thanks for the tip.
I hit the driver and fairway woods reasonably straight but shamefully pull my short iron shots.
What could i be doing wrong?
I have done a bunch of tips on curing pulls. You can find tips like this in the Cures section in the red nav bar.

Glad you had the “right thoughts” and it helped. Now those have to become your permanent thoughts.

Paul, I do practice swings EVERY day working on your technique and for the most part am able to carry it over to the practice range. So today, I felt I was ready to play a round of golf, have good thoughts, and make more good swings than bad. Just came in from 18 of the most frustrating holes of golf I’ve played! There were no good thoughts out there, and only a handful of respectable swings. All that practice and rehearsal pretty much for nothing… Am a good athlete but am ready to give it up…
So you tried it once and you did not get it. Do it again and again and again until you forget about distance, forget about hitting great shots an start thinking about doing the positions. The best way to do this is to play late at night by yourself with a few balls in your pocket. If you don’t do it on the first ball hit another and another until you do it right. Hit it, hold it and check it for every shot. Also, only swing at 50% of your ability.
You are learning a whole new way of swinging. Until you forget the old way (which did not work) you will be suck in limbo. I can tell people how to do it all day long but they have to commit to doing it. No matter how bad your shots KEEP DOING IT.
