Thank you for the tip. I have been working on straight arms 30″ after impact . So with this roll over early drill ? No change required in grip?

No grip change is required.
Paul…thanks again for seeing me last week.
I’m doing the drills on the range and @ home.
Hope to report good progress soon.
It was a pleasure meeting and working with you. Keep me posted.
Have been trying to slow my swing down and focus on ball before looking to where it is going (and stretching my arms out)I must still be swinging to hard with my arms because am still topping or hitting thin . This is my most frequent fault and I feel I could break through if I could cure this one fault. It truly is a struggle .
If you are hitting it thin or topping it you are swinging too hard.
Just tee it up for now and get consistent. Also stop watching the full flight of the ball. You should not see the first 30 yards.
And work on this position:

As well as stretching our your arms past impact.
Also do this drill immediately:

I’ve been making progress in terms of using my lower body and not hitting fat shots. I’ve been practicing rolling the club and hitting hooks and, when I forget about that, hitting some great shots. My question is: where does developing lag fit into this learning process? I don’t think that I’ve reached my potential in terms of distance but I don’t want to sacrifice accuracy.
Thanks again. I’m really pleased with the improvement I’ve made since I discovered your teaching.
Glad you are seeing results and like my teaching. I appreciate the feedback.
I would work on lag once you have a half decent swing that you are happy with. I doing so, you are going to lose accuracy because you will again be thinking of your arms. If you want to get into doing some of the lag drills around the house or in practice swings this is a good way to work on lag without it affecting your swing. Do them every day if you can. It take a while to master it.
You can find the lag drills in the red nav bar under:
SWING TIPS > FULL SWING > LAG
Thanks, Paul. I think my question is something like this: If I’m swinging well and keeping my wrists freely hinged, will trying to get more lag and the increased “whip” of the club which results cost me accuracy? If I’m hitting it straight now, will more lag cause me to hit to the right or to the left or will it have no effect on the direction of my shots? Am I being clear here?
It’s early morning now, Paul, and I just re-read your reply. You answered my question. DUH! Thanks for you patience.

For a while you will lose consistency because you will not be used to releasing it with more lag. If it is lagging more it will take the club longer to square. You are not good at releasing it so with more lag you will leave it right until the wrists loosen up and you release it better. This is why I suggest working on the lag while at home doing practice swings. Work on both lagging it more and releasing it. Too many people only work on the lag so they continue to blow it right. So if you feel you are ready to start working on it do so. Be prepared for some errant shots.
Great advice, Paul. I hope to be able to take it to the range tomorrow morning. Thanks again.
Paul ,Excellent lesson :I experienced exactly what you said (Push fade )with the new KRANK GOLF driver I purchased which is more powerful than the current excellent HONMA BERES one I used until now .(I drive 20 yards longer with the KRANK )
But instead of rolling over the wrists as you advise ,I just increased the speed of the rotation of the upper body to match the thrust of the lower body ,and my drives reverted to a straight flight again .
Is there any thing wrong in doing so?
I ‘ll try your method when I play next on the golf course .(I never go to a “driving range”)
I just don’t want you to be using the upper body to hit the ball. The upper body uncoils by uncoiling the lower body (spring-like effect).

You are only rolling for a bit to get the wrists releasing. Just hook it purposely for a few minutes then increase the leg drive. If you blow it right you need to roll it more.
Can I do this rolling wrist drill with my long irons? 3-6

You can do this with any club but keep in mind that the longer the iron the less loft. As you roll it, you de-loft the club even more so you may not get the ball airborne hitting long irons. Driver is on a tee so the ball can get airborne with the least lofted club. Keep at it.

Hi Paul am trying left handed golf been working on touch knees and follow through positions, for2 weeks ,hit a few balls alot of thin shots but reasonably straight. my arms feel really powerless hitting left handed ,right handed arm feel really power full hard to turn them off. left handed only hitting 3/4 shot at slow speeds should i stick with the 3/4 shot until i start making consistant contact before tring to turn lower body speed up.right now my left handed swing doesnt feel like it has much power not hitting ball very far. is the above drill the way to increase distance
