Great tip and very timely for me. I am doing better on my touching my knees part of my swing than relaxing my arms enough so I can get into the proper position at the end of my swing. Checking for tension at the completion of my swing makes a lot of sense.
I have one related question on the speeding up of the hip turn for more distance. I understand the concept of increasing the rolling over of the wrists sooner when increasing the speed of ones hip turn to get the ball to go straight instead of pushing. If that is true, then what is likely to happen if a person later decides to slow down his hip turn for accuracy on specific occasions I would guess that the ball would go left more often than not. This is my long way of asking if after we get better at attaining the correct positions; the process then becomes trying to marry the hip turn with rolling over of the wrists. Or maybe you have found that a golfer cannot go too far in his releasing the wrists and it does not matter how fast you perform the hip turn? I hope I am clear with my question.

Jim, The ball is going to go left if the body rotation is not ahead of the arms. So you cannot slow down to the point that this occurs. You should be working on the wrist hinge until you never tighten them anymore. Once you can do this then you can clearly be thinking of the body rotation.
Great tip Paul….what thoughts do you have to balance that super loose feeling in the arms while making sure you stay connected (especially under that left armpit). I think a lot of people learning this method initially overdue the connection and as a result tense up their shoulders and upper arms. Take care!!
Bryan, the connection under the armpit is slight. It is not a super hard pressure. So you feel connected then you are switching the though to powerless arms.

Paul, You always talk about how the hip turn powers the golf swing.
Are there drills we can do to increase the speed of our hip turn, and thus clubhead speed?
Oh yeah there are drills:
DRILL: Swing Off Ground: http://ignitiongolf.com/drill-swing-off-ground
DRILL: Listen to Club Swinging: http://ignitiongolf.com/drill-listen-to-club
DRILL: Start High Then Gradually Lower: http://ignitiongolf.com/start-high-gradually-lower/
DRILL: Firing Legs in Downswing: http://ignitiongolf.com/drill-knee-ball-power
DRILL: Belt Buckle Clubhead: http://ignitiongolf.com/drill-belt-buckle-clubhead
Constantly and consistently do them. This way you will always be working on powering the swing with your legs not your arms.
