PAUL,I TRULY LOVE THAT TIP FOR I HAVE A VERY INCONSISTENT TAKEAWAY MY WHOLE GOLFING LIFE..ONE QUESTION,HOW DO U GET TO THE TOP OF THE BACKSWING AFTER THE FIRST 2 FT.?? DO U DO THE WRIST COCK AFTER THE HANDS HAVE REACHED THE RIGHT THIGH,,OR JUST PASSED THE RT LEG,OR WHERE EXACTLY DO U START TO THE TOP??

I get the club to the top by continuing the rotation of my body. In doing so my arms keep moving back. Because my wrists are loose the momentum of the club swinging back hinges my wrists. At first, you may have to lift the arms up manually until you have trained them to go up there. Once they are in the correct position you are not really thinking of them at all.
Here is how to get the top of the backswing position:

In going from the 7-iron putting stroke to the full takeaway, you say to stretch your arms out. When I do that, I end up in a stiff or robotic position. How straight should the arms be when stretched out? Are they soft or stiff aka rigid? Do you have a lesson on the arms in the stretched position?

You are stretching them out and tightening them up. You cannot hit it if your elbows are bent. So extend your arms but don’t lock them up. Don’t you normally stretch your arms out when you set up? I am not asking you to do anything different. You do the putter drill to see that you are capable of doing a one piece takeaway. Once you know this you extend your arms and act like you are putting.

Hi Paul, something I’ve noticed with my swing is that with my iron shafts DG S300 & driver shaft at 72g (I was fitted before I stumbled on ignition golf : ), I tend to activate my arms towards the top of my backswing/start of downswing despite being conscious of your teaching. I notice with lighter shafts in irons and driver it is much easier for me to maintain powerless arms. I realise we all have different swing characteristics so maybe this is a particular trait of mine. It may be time to get fitted again. For me I think that too heavy a shaft for my body rotation in the backswing causes me to activate my hands & arms.
I guess I’d like to hear your opinion whether this makes sense or I just need to keep practicing! Thanks
BTW, when I do achive powerless arms with my driver it makes the game much easier so thanks to you!

It may also be easier with driver to turn the arms off due to its length being further from the center and the size of the head. Typically, when people get irons on their hand they bend over too much. This causes the feeling to hit down more. This hitting down can be psychological or how you learned to hit with irons. Before getting new shafts I would try standing taller. Once you do you will not be trying to hit down too much and may get the feeling of powerless arms with irons too. Also, before you do the re-shaft try other shafts so you know with 100% certainty this would be a wise decision.
