    Hi Paul,

    I am thinking of getting this weighted hip turn belt by momentus. Before I get it I would like to know what do you think of this product?

      Dear Herman ,I have this MOMENTUS belt since quite some time ,I also have the MOMENTUS jacket .
      I don’t find them that much useful except if you want to build up the muscles in your core .They won’t help your swing :just follow Paul’s instructions ,you’ll be doing fine

    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?

      Frank,

      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.

        Paul ,Regarding FRANK HERRERA’s question ,I note some “Long Drivers “(The “Champion Long Drivers “) ,in order to launch the ball higher at takeaway, recommend to tilt the spine to the right at address ,not just only the shoulders , so to come into the ball in a definite upwards sweeping motion ,not horizontal and surely not downwards , with of course the ball “perched “high on a 4 inches high tee situated in front of th big left toe .
        You wrote me in a previous response that your pupil ,the champion Long Driver ,MIKE DOBBYN ,didn’t do anything of the sort except teeing high.
        MIKE DOBBYN hit the longest drive ever 551 Yards .
        But he”s huge :6 foot 8 ,315 pounds .
        Apart from his outstanding physical attributes ,what make’s him ,in your opinion ,swing at 161 MPH
        N;B. DOBBYN was beaten twice by “small “JAMIE SADLOWSKI in the LONG DRIVE finals afterwards .
        Size isn’t everything !

          Raymond,

          It is all about lag angle and turning the body fast. I keep saying this. Both of these guys have these 2 things. Most long drivers are big guys. For a big guy to turn fast is rare. Sadlowski is thin but can turn incredibly fast which is necessary to hit the ball a long way.

    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?

    Thanks

      David,

      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.

        Paul , Commenting on Mr WEINSTEIN ‘s remark ,there’s an obvious way to cure the dreaded sway back :take a wider stance ,wider than the outside of the shoulders,which is the standard stance.
        Of course it makes the rotation forwards more difficult and you have to push real hard from the back right foot(Instep) to launch the rotation !

          Raymond,

          This is why I don’t like a wide stance. Also, I have seen plenty of people with a wide stance who sway. It is about allowing the head to move and finding the balance point of the back instep. Takes practice.

    Hey paul
    I was wondering if you have any clips or thoughts on how long your back swing should be
    Many thanks

    Hi Paul;
    In this tip, your voice is not in sequence with the video. No idea why. 1st time ever.

      Michael,

      I will take a look at it. I have a few that are out of synch for some reason.

      Michael,

      I don’t see anything wrong with the tip. I would think you have gone forward and back or skipped around the tip and it is out of synch. It could also be your connection. No one else is saying it’s out of synch.
