GREETINGS COACH I have been doing a lot of your favorite drill swings and I have started to actually feel my left knee lock in place I slowed down my swing to see if my hips moved the way I thought they should.Once in a while it looked like I might have slid left but my finish was correct.Not a major slid but slight.When I made the swing at my normal tempo all went well and finished in the right position. I like that swing feeling but want to know of anything to watch out for. I am indoors so there is no ball.

Very good. This is what is going to power your swing. The practice swings are the best/easiest way to master it. Keep up the good work.
I am 72 years old with a driver swing speed of about 90mph. Assuming I can achieve powerless arms should I expect to drive 240-250 on average?
Dear John ,I read your question to PAUL,about distance off the tee with the driver .You have the same preoccupations as I do.I’m older than you are (Over 81 ) but the limits are the same:aging body ,loss of flexibilty ,lack of explosiveness .
I believe what Paul says ,improve your swing technique first ,by swinging 200 swings a day in “dry run “without a ball,in front of a Mirror or window pane to check if you are practising well ;your swing has to approach perfection ,so as to get the most out of your body’s physical possibilries.At the same time work on your body with JEREMY KLINKHAMER’s drills ,strenghten the core (MIKE BAUMANN’s Rubber tubings )and improve your flexibilty .
Speed of the clubhead can be learned ,with Paul’s sound exercises ,but also with such “gimmicks” as the SUPERSPEED STICKS of MIKE NAPOLEON(See his site )or the MOMENTUS SWING WHOOSH .
Speed of the cluhhead is not enough ,the “SMASH FACTOR “has to be optimized (How good is the contact between the club face and the ball)
You have to train with a SSRTT to ascertain you improve your speed .
But most of all you have to hit it straight on the golf course and do so consistently ,no need to hit it far if it’s in the rough ,the bushes ,the water or the woods .
Then there’s the short game ,the half of your scoring.
With all this training you’ll get over 100 MPH from your present 90 ,and with that you’ll hit 230 yards which is fairly good .
Powerless arms plus driving your legs and hips faster would get you there. This is not out of reach. Too many people are just whacking at the ball and hitting it 220 yet I teach a 14 year hold who hits it over 250. It is not about strength. It’s about technique.
