Hi Paul, get the tightness and I am now definitely using the lower body to create the swing and things have progressed nicely, however, I still don’t seem to end the swing around my neck even though I am not using my arms. I don’t want to force it as I feel I will be reusing my arms I was hoping the momentum would get me there but it just doesn’t. what do you reckon?
You need to manually set this club between the ears for a while until you train it to go there. Once you understand where this exact position is and you keep the arms turned off it will go there on its own. Just do swings towards a mirror like you are hitting a ball at it. This way you can check it in the follow through position. A week of working on this and you will never have to work on it again (if you do it right).
Hi Paul, In my take away I visualize & try to feel both armpits connected to the body trying to remember to keep the flex in the back leg so as to get that tight feeling, however 2 things happen to me, first I find my arms & hands are difficult to stay powerless , secondly I find it difficult to keep the “grapefruit” under the right armpit instead it becomes a ” grape”. I also have difficulty in getting the right elbow to find that position for the “grapefruit feel “. What do u suggest? Thanx
Harvey, The connection under both armpit is just until the right leg. At this point the right arm starts to fold slightly. You do not feel this pressure only the pressure under the left armpit. As the club goes from 3/4 back to the top this left arm rides up the pec muscle so the left arm gets above the shoulder line. There is still connection but it has to ride up.
For the right elbow grapefruit position you literally need to move the right elbow away from your body as you go from 3/4 to the top. Feel like you are dropping a watermelon out of this armpit.
I get the feeling you are too connected as you take the club back and you are holding this pressure all the way to the top. This is not correct. It is a little pressure not a lot of pressure. The pressure is only under the left armpit as you hit the top of the backswing because the right elbow has separated from your body.
Just do lots of practice swings with a mirror off of your right side. Take the club to the top and try to replicate my backswing position. Then you will get the correct feeling.

Oh dear….I think I have done all those mistakes during my one and a half year as a beginner in golf. Just looked at the last video I did on my swing and I can see that I have the “to much hip turn” left to work on. My swing is often too long, the club ends up far behind my back, and in the video I can see that I

Lotta, Just try this to slow the hips down:
How To Stabilize The Lower Body In The Backswing (belt buckle at ball): http://ignitiongolf.com/stabilize-lower-body/
As I said in the tip you are overturning to get a more powerful feeling going back. All you should be doing is coiling until you are tight. Once tightly coiled you uncoil the other way to hit the ball. So keep the lower body stable understanding that you are try to set the backswing in the correct position. Once set you maek the move the other way. You can also use a mirror and do nightly practice swings watching to see how much the lower body is moving. Once you see it, you can stop it from moving too much.
The ball can make you do more of a swing. Again this is you looking for power in the arms to hit at the ball. This is the wrong thought. You are not trying to hit anything. The ball is hit because you are swinging from point A (top of backswing) to point B (follow through). See the swing differently. Focus on getting to the top then to the follow through. Forget impact. After you hit every shot hold this position. Check it. Then correct it if it is wrong. The positions have to matter more than the ball. Once this happens you will make the changes.
