    The tips throwing the ball make me toutch the knees , Thjis is magic

    but when i do a golf swing with a club
    no way..

    • Robert,

      So do it long after you hit the shot. You just need to at least do it. If you just quit you are not doing it at all. Also, just do it slow not caring about where your balls goes. When people can’t do something they are trying to hit great shots. Forget the ball. Just swing slowly thinking “take my back leg and physically touch the forward leg” looking for the pressure of them touching. You need this feedback to tell you that you are doing it right. So no matter where the ball goes or how long it takes you, get them touching.

    Bought the dvd over the weekend. Hit balls in backyard over the weekend. Tried the swing on the course today. Happy to see that I could end up at the finish point of touching the head and right foot ending at the toe. Did not check the touching the knee as I forgot about it trying to do the other things. Did not get any distance with a slight slice at times. I am a 14 or 15 handicapper who has mostly hit with my arms. Lucky to get 200 years on a drive and am 69 years old. Hit a 7 iron 130 yrds. Question: Is the trigger for the downswing the idea of touching the knee or turning the hips or turning the belt buckle towards the target? What is the best thought for starting the downswing? If I start with my shoulders and keep the club cocked, it helps me get to the hitting area without swinging my arms down.

      Glad you are working on it. Make sure the positions are precise as I hear from people all of the time they are doing something when really, they are not. So watch my positions and copy them exactly.

      Don’t worry about the fade. There is a whole cure your slice section in the book and videos. You can get to that later. Just stick with grip, setup and follow through until you are used to it.

      You need to choose your trigger. In the book (page 136) I have all of the triggers listed as well as in the videos in the positions video at the end. You can spring from the instep of the back foot, knee ahead of the ball, belt buckle, hips, or straightening the forward leg. Try them all and get used to them.

      At this point in working on it you really shouldn’t even be thinking about the downswing trigger. You should just be trying to touch the legs hitting the ending point. In other words, don’t move too fast through the lessons. I teach a very specific way. Stick to the plan and you will get it … fast.

      Also, once you get it then go to the distance section for more power.
