    I see that you are using a driver in your video. Does this drill and concept apply to all clubs in the bag? ( other than putter of course)
    Thanks

      Thomas,

      Yes, all clubs. Everything I discuss is for all clubs unless I specifically mention it.

    Hi, Paul.

    That is the best tip ever!!! I had never thought of “separation” as what separates the pros from the rest of us but I am sure you are right. And I agree with your analysis that kids who learn before they develop upper arm strength do it naturally while those of us who learned later have to work hard to unlearn our upper-body driven swing and that takes thousands of repetitions.

    Brilliant insights. Thank you!!

      Jim,

      Glad you liked it. Thanks. Human nature is the real killer in the golf swing. Got to stay focused on the hips.

  3. Paul,I do this “up in the air ” drill with the four finned . POWER FAN .
    Is it OK to do So ,or better with the Driver ortie Sand Wedge as you showed yesterday?

      Raymond,

      Driver is best. It’s longer and creates more wind resistance so you can hear it. I used sand wedge to work on lag because I was just hitting short shots lagging it. You can use longer club to work on lag in practice swings if you want.

    Same questions as above. Does this drill work for small clubs (pitching wedge) and the power fan?

      Duke,

      I did lag drills with short clubs because I was just hitting short shots holding the lag angle. Working on separation you would do so with longer club if you are holding the club in the air. This way you can hear the club swinging. You drive the legs and hips harder to make the club sound faster as it swings. You can certainly work on everything with both short and longer clubs.

      Power Fan is a training aid from years ago. It’s a grip with fan blades and you swing it. The bladed create resistance.

    I’ve been working on “separation” for a while now and finally starting to see some positive results. I was guilty early on of doing your favorite drill correctly for a couple of swings and then lowering it to swing through a leaf or such. I did this because I knew I would have to be able to lower it on the course I guess. I know I need to get back to doing the drill correctly but was wondering if doing ten or twenty above the groung swings for every one lowered swing would be an acceptable approach.

      Gary,

      Glad you are doing it right now. It is vital you do it the way I suggest. Then you will take the “hit” out of your swing.

  6. very important tip but hard not to turn the shoulders with the hips.

      Garret,

      That is why it separates pros from amateurs. Do the drill constantly holding the club in the air. Then you are not thinking hit and can feel the hips powering the swing.

  7. I tend to pull the ball when I concentrate on attempting separation. ????

  8. Happy New Year Paul! BTW,I’m living proof that your method works. Not to “blow my own horn” but to add further credence to your methods…..I started golfing for the first time 19 August 2012, joined your site 20 Sept 2012…….performed your “favourite drill” regularly (several times per week ever since I saw that tip)……finally got the “separation” thing and thus,flattening the swing plane, last summer. 2015 average score was 82.5 (71 rounds) Index 8.2. Just turned 55 yrs old in July. Thanx a ton!
