    Paul, another great tip to work with in the fridgid non-golfing winter. I am setting up my indoor workstation and all these tips are helpful as I go through your book and video. Would you reccommend using the short momentus club on these drills or is it heavier than what we want to use. Also, how would uuse reccommend using that club in your drill practice since it would be used without hitting balls?

      Use the short Momentus if you do not have room to swing or if you like swinging it. If you can swing a full sized club then do so.

      I promote the short Momentus because it is a great training aid so use it for drills etc. It is all about making the movement. The advantage of swinging a short club is that it definitely takes the ball out of the picture. No ball means you actually makes swing changes.

    Paul, I have some confusion regarding “length of backswing”. I generally indoor practice with my 7 iron and when I get the coiled tension my backswing is in about the same position as you show. However, I’m pretty sure that is where all my clubs are when I’m coiled. I never thought about changing the top of the full backswing with different clubs. Once at the tight coil do the arms reach up or out further for the driver, 3 wood, etc.? At fully coiled what is the way to get different backswing lengths?

      Longer clubs set in motion should create more momentum as they swing back thus coiling you back a little farther and lengthening the backswing without thinking about it. Just keep getting the tight feeling and you should be okay. If you see a short iron going way too long than you might want to shorten it up.

    I notice in the early part of the video tip when you are mirroring the length of the backswing that your upper arms are separated from your upper body (rib cage). In fact you have separation with both arms and had you a towel under both arms both would have dropped to the ground. I thought the upper arms were virtually attached to the upper body throughout the swing, Comments please.

    Hi Paul,
    This is a good tip.
    Do you intend to follow on with a further one from the front view finishing off the stroke – showing the arms through the hitting zone?
    My problem is that I tend to turn over the hands at the point of contact with the ball resulting in severe hooks. However if I leave it a bit later I find it difficult to turn the hans over and generally end up holding off the club face.

      I think I am done with my indoor practice tips for now. I want people working on their grip, setup, top of the backswing and follow through. If you master these 3 areas of the swing you will become a great golfer.

      If you are hooking the ball without trying to hook it you have a grip problem. You need to immediately be working on your grip. I say this because from a neutral grip I would have trouble hooking the ball more than 5-10 yards with irons and 15-20 with Driver. Watch this tip:
