    These are so helpful. My legs are a train wreck, 25 years of muscle memory gone horribly wrong. All of these side by side videos are very eye opening. Tell Jim we are all with him and that we appreciate him volunteering to be the ‘before’ model. Counting the days until spring – Matt

    Yes, great respect to Jim, many of us would actually look the same as he does. And many would already appreciate if they would look even like him 😉
    Paul, this videos are another master piece of your outstanding teaching skills.
    Thanks a lot, keep going strong. My wife and I are getting so much out of it!

      Reiner,

      Yes, most people like like Jim if not worse. Funny thing is, a lot know the positions I teach. This lead me to believe people don’t practice enough. I keep saying it is about the positions not the ball. Just got to work on them. As you do you will be build a great swing which hits great shots. Then the game becomes fun.

      Glad you like the tips.

    These comparison videos are a nice addition to your already impressive collection of instructional videos. Just when I start to think that you will run out of “new” ways to make things clearer, you come up with something else. It is interesting (in this particular video) to see how trying to trying for too much in the back swing can make the downswing so much more difficult. It looks like Jim has a lot of good things going on in his swing that would show up pretty quickly just by working on shortening his back swing. A good coil going back is important, but not if you have to get out of position to try to get the back to the target. I think I am also guilty of this at times and this video (and the others in this series) are good reminder of what to be aware of.

      Gary,

      Glad you like them. Just tying to think of new things to add.

      Yes, the top of the backswing is critical. You need to be in a great position to come down. If not, you will need other flaws and that is not consistent.

      Just coil while keeping the lower body stable. Too many people want too much backswing because they are looking for power in the arms. I am just coiling until I’m tight. Once tight I am at the top.

      Remember that you are a spring. You coil it … you uncoil.

    Holy cow! One of your best, if not the best of your videos.I have no questions as you made it so clear. This video is a work of art. Mike

    Again, this video is one for the ages. However, a question did occur to me. Is there a minimum amount of shoulder turn necessary to achieve decent results?

    By restricting the hips to no more than 45 degrees, some older, inflexible players may not be able to coil there shoulders more than 75-80 degrees.

      Mike,

      You need to turn your shoulders back as far as you can turn them back. I don’t get to 90 degrees and I hit it a long way. If I went to 70 degrees I could still hit it a long way. It about coiling your spring and uncoiling as well a keeping the wrists loose.

    On the other side of the equation (Brandel Chamblee in the most recent Golf Magazine) are those who say restricting the hips is only for those who are very flexible. Mike

      Mike,

      Brandell Chamblee has no idea what he is talking about. Never listen to tour pros or rocket scientists.

    Paul,

    Absolute gold for me on this one. I did some review in the mirror and with my best friend (my wife, :)) and figured out my hip rotation way too much like Jim’s in the video. Put me way out of position to lead with the body and huge loss of power, too. Combined this with a review of “How to Feel Stability in Lower Body” tip and have had an amazing transformation in the consistency of my shots. Gonna take the learnings to the courses next 4 days for 72 great holes of golf (and capturing a little gold from the others, of course).

    Thanks again for such a great golf instruction site and concept.

      Kim,

      Glad you are seeing what you are doing. Just keep knocking these things off one a time. You should be able to take it to a whole new level.
