    Hi Paul. Thanks again for this reminder. Turning off the arms works really well. However every now and then, (and I know that shouldn’t), 1/2 way through my swing, I get an urge to give a little arm muscle resulting in a pull if not a bad shot. Doing this I end with a chiken wing finish. I know what I have done wrong, but like the above tip, is some little thing I can think about to stop this urge and have a better extended finish?
    Thanks for all your hard work. You have made golfing a lot more fun and I thoroughly enjoy your site.

      Gerry,

      Glad you like the site. I appreciate the feedback. I’m also glad you are improving. This tells me I am doing something right.

      I think the best thing you can do are practice swings before you hit each shot. I just did a tip on this the other day. As you do the practice swings you are thinking about the pace of the practice swing as you are doing it. Then you apply that very same pace to your shots.

      Also,

      You can be thinking about going through to your follow through position. In thinking like this you are not thinking of hitting the ball. So hit it, hold the follow through and check to see if you did it exactly right. If you are thinking of sticking the follow through you must be doing it at a rate of speed that you can actually stick it. If you go too hard you will be falling all over the place and not hitting the position.

    Hi Paul,

    Thank you for that tip.
    I have been trying to use your techniques for a little while now and things are getting a lot better and I am more confident with better scores.
    My worst problem shot is now this pull hook off the tee.
    In a couple of rounds recently I observed both myself and playing partners having hooks on particular holes.
    They are ones with downhill fairways or where the green lies below the tee.
    My theory is that because we are looking downhill at our target landing area then we tend to lean forward slightly on the downswing which causes the forward body lean hence bringing about the pull shot ( I only understood this because you explained it in a previous tip).
    To correct this I think to hang back a little on the right side or when I set up to pick a target that is horizontal rather than my landing area.
    I would welcome your thoughts on this.
    Whilst my scoring is getting a lot better now, particularly when I use your chipping method using different clubs for different roll out on the green, my one challenging shot is when I am say 5 to 10 yards off the green with the flag say 20 yards on what kind of shot to use then.
    Keep up the good work – a great site
    Ivor

      Ivor,

      I’m glad you are improving. I love hearing it.

      Yes, you may be uncomfortable in this situation. If you see it happening consistently on these holes then something is wrong. You may also be undecided on what club to hit from this elevated tee. Without confidence you may not be driving the lower body fast enough to get ahead of the hands so the hands and arms pull down and you pull hook it.

      In the future, before you tee of from this situation, just hold the club in the air at approx. knee high. Do a few practice swings feeling the legs and hips making the club swing. Once you have this feeling step up and apply it to your shots. You are pull hooking because the arms are starting down first. If you get the legs and hips to initiate the downswing you will hit it dead straight or with a slight draw.

      Here are 3 tips on my favorite drill:

    Hi Paul

    Your method works for me extremely well, except when using a rescue club (5 or 6) of the Tee and especially on a par 3. Any reason why a rescue cube would have more of a hooking effect?

    Thank you

    Best,

      David,

      You have one swing and 13 clubs + your putter. If you cannot hit certain clubs you have a mental block, you are making a different swing with those clubs or those club are not fitted properly. They may have weaker or stronger than normal shafts. I would take them to a fitter. Also, make sure you are doing your exact swing when you hit these clubs and not doing something different. Do a few practice swings beforehand focusing on your movement. Then apply this movement to the shot.

        Thanks Paul. I THINK I use the same swing, but will follow your advice the next time on the driving range. Then, perhaps, a fitter.

        Best,
