    Hi Paul

    Could you comment me about the recommendation to hit the ball with the upper body behind the ball.
    I have note that you and the many pro player at the contact moment lock like fold his back leg favorable to the upper body be behind the bolt, some instructors recommended incline the colum angle at the contact moment or down the back shoulder . What your opinion about this?

      I have done tips on this in the past. If you fire the lower body properly the upper body should hang back behind the ball. It’s like hitting the accelerator on a car. When you do your upper body falls back in the seat. If this occurs the path of the club will be slightly from the inside. If you are with the arms your upper body will lean left and the club will swing left. Now this firing of the lower body takes time to master. If you cannot get it by firing you need to purposely keep your head behind it int he downswing. Keep working on the touching of the legs position and feel your body staying behind it.

    Hi Paul
    As you are showing this I recall a “feet together” drill to avoid swaying. Would you say that this is a counter productive drills for those who follow your swing method? Or do you only refer to the driver and other long clubs here?

      I don’t ever do the feet together drill. This never cures a sway. Curing a sway takes immense focus on concentration on where the weight is loading on the feet. The head should be moving in the backswing with a proper coiling action of the shoulders as opposed to moving sideways. A quiet hip rotation in the backswing can also help significantly.

      So yes stay away from this drill. It is a waste of time. If you are swaying focus on stabilizing the lower body, loading the weight in the right instep heel in the backswing as the upper body coils.
