    What about the right knee? Somebody, years ago, in order to stop me from swaying or letting my weight to far to the right, advised me to try and keep my right knee pointed at the ball throughout the back-swing. (Just a swing thought — I don’t think one can actually do that.)

    Sometimes when I think to do it it seems to help me “stay connected”? Any comment?

    Excellent reminder,Paul,on how to avoid this “disastrous “forward knee position .
    Do you always keep your left foot flush to THE ground in doing so ,or ,when you are looking for extra coil ,do yo allow a slight move up OF THE left foot Heel ?
    Now you should do another instructional footwork video on what THE right knee does .
    As Mr Herbert writes above ,I keep my right knee flexed throughout my backswing ,with THE inside OF THE knee “Blocked”to THE inside (To THE left ),with my Weight on THE inside sole OF my right foot .
    You cannot Sway backwards in doing so ,and you are ready to push off THE right foot while executing THE throughswing .

      This is a very important position that helps with the coil so if you are doing this right maybe your swing isn’t too far off. Focus on the other positions to make them perfect too.

    Hi Paul,

    I have been a follower of your powerless arms technique and I’m very near at accomplishing what you have been teaching. From a 36 handicap I was able to lower it by 20s.. However I have a major flaw in my swing, I can not physically touch my knees together. This is because I am an overweight golfer and touching them is next to impossible.. With this, my follow through position is wider with my back leg almost level with my front leg.. This results in poor consistency ( I believe ). My question is do you have an alternative way of doing this for big men like us aside from trying to lose weight? Thanks and more power!

      I think I answered this already.

      Narrow your stance and see if the touch. If they do not then you need them to come around to the best of your ability. I want them to touch you can do the exact same position every day for eery shot forever. If you cannot physically touch them together then you will have to do your best and constantly check this position so it does not fall apart.

      Do these drills too:

gam-golf-140Last week I was fortunate to get together with the resident pro for a company called GAME GOLF.  This is a new GPS stat tracking system.

This system is worn on your belt an communicates with tags that are inserted into the grips of your clubs.  More and more tour players including: Graeme McDowell, Lee Westwood and Jim Furyk are using this same device.

Tracking your stats is a great way to help lower your scores and see your progress over time.  Using the GAME GOLF stat tracker will allow you to know exactly how far you are hitting your clubs, distance hit, left or right, long or short percentages and much more!

I have posted a video of me using this amazing new product on the course.  It is not cheap but as you know I only promote product that will help your game.  I highly recommend this product.
