So true that review is very important! It made me realize that when I don’t feel the torque, that I have to manufacture speed by swinging my arms which really slows it all down. I intend to return to the helicopter drill until the torque feeling is in-grained in my swing. Truly great idea on your part for Fri review.

Mike, I have a ton of content on this site that needs to be watched so I think 1 day a week we go over a previous tip. I think it makes sense. I think you get it too. There is a lot to remember.

hey paul,,,i will guess that i am the only student you have that cannot do the helicopter drill.i have been a weightlifter/bodybuilder for so long now (45 YRS),that i do not have the flexibility to simply put the clubshaft in back of my neck…so other than trying to circularly turn my left shoulder until i feel that tension in my left ribcage….anything else????
If you can’t do the helicopter drill as I show then put the club across your chest with crossed arms. This way it will indicate the shoulder rotation as well although you won’t get quite the same rotation.

I am using my left shoulder to coil. Which part of the shoulder do you focus on eg, I think of the top of the left arm, where it joins my shoulder. Do I coil against the middle of my chest for eg, the buttons of the Tee shirt? Will the Letter Y made by the arms move in that shape automatically as I coil from the left shoulder? I played rubbish golf today. Embarrassed to tell you what I shot!! I was in confusion whether just to move the letter Y from my buttons, from the middle of the chest or to coil from the shoulder against the buttons. Thinking of both did not work.

I think of the tip of my shoulder. I turn it back around a stable base.

Do not make this complicated. I get the feeling you are trying to dissect every morsel of this movement. It is simple. You take your shoulder and turn it. Your arms are connected to your body so they would move if you turned your body.
Do your arms move when you putt? I bet they do. The putting stroke is a one-piece action. It is the same action you should be using for a one-piece takeway in your swing:

You may play poor golf if you are changing your swing. Keep the goal in mind and forget how you are playing. Build a great swing and you will play great golf.
