    Great tip Paul and the sound is not too bad. My question is wether it is possible to over-do the firing of the hips and thus get your hands and club stuck behind on the follow through. I have heard this described as a better player’s problem but would like to know if you have encountered this. Thanks.

    Paul, is it important to ensure the shaft of the club dissects your right forearm on the way down just before releasing the club? Would this indicate the correct path and enough lag? (When videoing swings from directly behind).

    Many thanks,
    Paul

    Why are there several pros such as this past weeks winner Patrick Reed keeping their right foot on the ground through impact?

      Sean,

      Because they are trying anything and everything or they are sliding laterally. I really do not like this new swing. They think this is the magical move. How many of the best players of all time kept this foo flat at impact? I can’t even think of one.

      You can keep the foot flat if you make sure the hips have rotated upwards of 45 degrees at impact. This does hurt the back though and causes a reverse C in the follow through. Why not let the hips pull the heel off the ground.

      Keep in mind we already have the best swing of all time. Tiger in 2001-2003. At this time he was beating the best players in the world by 3 to 13 shots. If we already have the best swing why would you want to do something else?

    Paul, this a tip I have been waiting for since I think I’m having problems starting my hip turn at the top of my backswing. I’ll add your drills to my homework routine and hopefully I will be comfortable with the move whenever I get back outside and to a golf course. I love your video tips , but there is only so much an amateur can work on at one time. My indoor swing tempo has definately slowed dow and I continue to try and make my arms powerless.Thanks

      Harvey,

      If you are getting overloaded you are not using this site properly. You need to work on 1 or two things. Forget the daily tips. They are added to the archive every day. When you get to that topic watch them then. Or use the tips in conjunction with my Swing Machine Golf products. I have said this in the past.

      I did another tip on this a while ago. Maybe there is more info that you can learn.

    Paul unquestionably the best tip you have ever done. I have watched so many different nuances of the downswing but you have nailed it in a simple and direct way.
    Thank you and good job!
