    Hi Paul,
    I have tried this “pointer” tip and it works great. I combine it with another alignment help , ie, putting my club across my thighs at address. Btw, I I am occasionally frozen over ball at address esp if I am working on a swing position. Can you do a video on backswing triggers to enable smooth takeaway from address position? Thanks again for making golf fun and exciting again. David

      Glad you like it. Thanks.

      I did a tip on starting the backswing here:

      How to Pull The Trigger:

      You really shouldn’t be getting stuck over the ball as you go back. If you are working on swing positions you are doing so on the range. When you play just think of coiling your shoulders back. This is a pretty simple thought that will allow you to develop torque as you go back.

      Choose to work on your body positions first on the range. This means coiling, moving the head, weight shift, lower body stability. Once you get this work on the wrist hinge. You can do that here:

    Hi Paul. Thanks for this alignment tip. I’ve never seen it in any of the golf magazines and have always relied on standing behind the ball and picking a spot down the fairway. This method makes a lot of sense and I’ll use it the next opportunity I get.

    Best Regards,

      Thanks. There is a lot of stuff I say that you will never hear anyone else say. I will just keep trying to get the word out. I did hear someone steal one of my things the other day. Funny.

    I understand this if I’m trying to work the ball left to right,But what if i want to draw the ball.Do i still line up left of the target with the club square to the target?Do I just drop my right foot back a little? I’m a little confised on this

    Paul, I wish I saw this tip during my golfing season. I am one of the many that always setts up and is aiming too far right , although I think I’m properly aligned. Now I have to remember this and incorporate it into my set up when I golf again next Spring. I really enjoy watching your video tips.
