    Hi Paul,

    This tip is pure genius. Your presentation is so simple that I laughed out loud. I’ve been searching for a way to attain a repetitive swing. This is it.

    Thanks,
    Len

    Dear Paul ,
    I have read in annother golf instruction that the following leg should not touch the lead leg , However David Leadbetter advises to do exactly as you say :as an image ,h

      Raymond,

      I want the legs to touch so you get feedback to tell you if you are doing the exact same position every time. If they are apart you need to look down, video, or have a friend tell you if you are doing the exact same move. The other instruction is not thinking of the swing the way I am. I think you would want to do the exact same position each time so you swing doesn’t fall apart. If this is the case then please keep touching them.

    G’day Paul,
    Oh boy, this is a boring repetitive game – doing the same thing over and over.
    Thanks for re-enforcing one of your principles. Some pros referred to swinging through the ball. I think overcoming human nature to hit the ball is the hard part.

      Ben,

      Glad you liked it. Thanks.

      Swinging through it is not precise enough. If you do not know exactly where you are swinging through to you will not do it so you will go back to hitting. If you know the exact point now you can stay focused and repeat it. Keep on making it boring.

    Paul,

    Great reminder, exactly why I subscribe to your site, I need repetition in my instruction as well as swing.

    Paul,
    Today I played 18 holes and used the A to B technique and only thought of the two positions when making every swing. Towards the end of the round one of the other players in my group commented on my good hip turn during my swings. I had told no one in the group what I was doing today. I then got kidded and called the ‘Hipster’. I had a good round and intend to use this tip going forward. Thanks for the advice.

      Rich,

      That’s good news. People are noticing so you are changing. Keep at it and they will be begging you for what you did (I hope you tell them).

    Hey Paul -

    I am watching all your tips…. I came off of the fantastic golf school with you last April and swung (and scored) really well. Towards the end of the season I lost it a bit… then started thinking too much… AND it IS the follow through and finish that I need to start practicing again to get it back!! It’s so simple right? Touch the legs and touch the club to the back of your head!! Hollie

    • Hollie,

      Great to hear from you again. Yes, the follow through is everything. Funny how people forget this. Glad you remembered it.

    Where should your club make contact with the ball when going to Point B?
    Is it directly behind the ball? Is it at about 7:30 going to 1:30? What is the point of impact that I should be trying to pass through.
    Didn’t mean to be rough on you about asking me to join again. This is really important to me and I have turned numerous people on to your free tips. I have been a student of the game for over 40 years and think this is a swing I can take into my 70′s and beyond. I very much want my friends and even new aquaintences to be made aware of. You have been blessed witha wonderful way of communicating.
    Aloha,

      Rod,

      What hour on the clock is the ball?

      The club will make contact with the ball while still on the way down and slightly from the inside. It hits the ball. The ball sticks to the face for a millisecond then is released from the face (moment of separation). As the club is continuing on the arc the face squares the ball separates from the face (hopefully).

      I am not sure why you are even thinking of this. Impact is not the widest point of the arc so why do you care about it? If you are using physics to hit the ball the mass (club) needs to swing to the widest point of the arc. This occurs after the ball is hit.

      Watch:

      How to Release the Golf Club: http://ignitiongolf.com/impact-wrist-release

      So you should be trying to set the club at the top Point A. You then start the downswing with the lower body. The arms are turned off. You are thinking about making it to Point B (my follow through positions). If you move from Point A to Point B the ball will be hit perfectly. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking about impact. You don’t need to.

      You certainly can use this swing into your 70′s and even 80′s. At 82 one of my students just shot 39 for 9 holes on a very tough course. He also flies it 250+.

  9. watching your tips since Easter this year,I just practice turning my shoulders then touch my knees on the downswing,I must say my golf and confidence has improved out of sight that I’ve come down to an eleven handicap!My swing thought on long shots is simply swing from A to B works pretty much 90 per cent of the time,just fantastic thanks Paul.

    • Colin,

      That’s great news. I love hearing it. Now just keep doing what you are doing and try to make the positions even more precise. As you keep looking like a better player your handicap will keep dropping. It’s all about the movement. Perfect movement = perfect shots.
