      Raymond,

      I don’t like it because it activates the hands and arms. If they are activated how are you going to make them powerless. If you think of the longest hitters they typically have a late wrist set. Shorter hitting tend to hinge it early. Look at Faldo. He hit it no where for a guy 6′ 4″.

  2. Hi Paul:

    In your book you have a “Stay Connected Drill” that I missed in the video series. After applying that tip, my consistency improved.

    As I tried to “hit it harder” (I know – wrong thinking) it was the connection that suffered. Swinging at 50% helps to maintain this connection as well.

    I would love to see a video tip fully developing the “Stay Connected concept. I suspect others might find it as useful as I have.

    Great stuff. Thanks

    I tried this brill it really works i concentrate on slow takeaway and proper shoulder turn and swing at 50 per cent WOW
    It really involves your body and my timing was great
    Cheers Paul

      Paul,

      That’s great news. As much as you don’t think it will produce great shots it does so why swing harder. Just get used to this for a little while then speed only the touching of the legs position to get it up to 80% in the future of course. Then never go beyond 80%. If you do you are entering a gray zone where anything could happen.

    Hi Paul – Several months ago I mentioned to you British Pro Percy Boomer’s 1946 book (still in print) “On Learning Golf”. In that book, he says something that you alluded to in this video. He wrote, “The slower the swing, the faster the clubhead speed.” He points out that other several sports share a similar result: slower is better. At 79, I’m still swinging too fast, but I’m working on slowing down. This video convinced me to slow down even more. 50% is reasonable and, I look forward to longer shots!Onward and upward (or, in the case of golf, lower). Cheers, – Roy Gulick

      Roy,

      It is not necessarily a slow swing. It is a swing powered by your body rotation with loose wrists. In a good golf swing the body rotates at approx. 2.5 mph. If your body turns this slow and your arms are turned off it would appear you would have a slow swing.

      The power in this type of swing is generated through the wrists being loose. So let’s say you are turning your upper body at 1.5 mph and and I am a 2.5 mph. For you to get to my speed (1 mph increase in rotational speed) it would take you way more energy. Unfortunately, most people are just trying to hit the ball as hard as they can with their arms. In doing so, the swing looks fast (because your arms move faster than your body in life) yet the ball does not go very far. In hitting hard the wrist are getting tighter which is exactly the opposite to what I am doing.

      Slowing down for you is a good thing. This will start to take the arms out of the swing. Once you have got the “hit” sensation out of your swing and you are hitting the ball almost as far with very little effort simple start to work on turning your body faster. If you do, you will create a faster whipping action of the club and hit the ball farther than every before.

      I like the 50% thought. Keep doing it.

    Paul, This tip really works. I can’t believe how much straighter and further I am down the fairway I am just by swinging slower. I was slow getting the hang of swinging like this, but now, even on the driving range with a faster full swing speed is amazing. My game partners shoot par most of the time and they are amazed after I finally caught on to my new effortless swing. They and I are excited about my game progress and now I am enjoying the game; thanks!

      Wayne,

      I sure does. People look at me like I am from mars when I tell them to do this. You are proof that it works and works well. I hope others will try it.
