  1. Paul,You are perfectly right .When I was a young boy ,I lived in the RIFT VALLEY ( KENYA) ,and I ran round with m’y MASAI friends.They showed me how to use a slling ,Like DAVID hurling a Stone to kill GOLIATH .Well ,the “POWERLESS ARMS ” swing is Like slinging a ball ,nô tension in the strings ,just speed .To be sure To keep Loose ,I ” wiggle “ARMS and body before swinging .
    If you are careful to nearly let go with your right hand on the handle ( VIJAY SINGH use d to do this ) your club head moves évén faster ,your right arm does’nt act Like a brake and your clubhead keeps accelerating.
    Paul ,we talked a year ago about the EDEL clubs use d by BRYSON DE CHAMBEAU .Man y peuple are skeptical about thèse same length irons ,all them 6 Iron shafts. with différent clubheads .BRYSON also Plays a single plane swing ,very upright .
    What do you think about this ?

      I like the single length clubs just haven’t been able to find ones I like to try them. Edel does not make these clubs for everyone. They only made them for De Chambeau. I have talked to 1 Iron Golf a years ago but I just don’t like offset clubs. I am thinking of making my own set.

      As far as one plane goes the best players of all time were 2 plane. So I prefer 2 plane. Jack, Tiger, Rory, Watson, Nelson, Couples, Faldo, Snead, Jones even Hogan as he was not tilted at set up. Once there is a one planer that could beat all of them I will keep teaching 2 plane.

  2. Hi Paul,

    this tip could be very easyly your method in a nutshell. What I noticed so far for me is that the longer the club, the more arms I tend to putt on the swing.
    If I tried to put it on a scale (1 would be all arms, 10 ideal powerless arms), I would say I am still on the following pattern :

    SW/GW : 7/10
    PW/9 : 6/10
    8/7 : 5/10
    6 :4 /10
    fairway woods : 5/10
    driver : 3/10

    this is of course only my feeling, but it reflects the output : still very poor results as soon as I have to hit irons past the PW. Very hard to cure indeed.

    When you explain powerless arms in another video (your arms streched out and swinging your body without a club demo) your arms seems much more ‘stiff’ than when you demonstrate it in this video. Here it seems more that you fling your arms together with your body. Coud you please explain a little more of what is right ? When I have to loose arms (I let the club drop and let gravity take over) it seems that they come down to early.

    I have seen the videos several times and try to understand the move.
    When have very loose armes they seems to start swinging imdependenly of the body and the shpulders, it’s like I have to use some force to hold them in position to the shoulders and the body, and I think have not catched this completely right.

    Susan Pedersen says that she likes to keep the club shaft in front of her chest through the downswing. Is this a thought to have in mind when you do the swing ? I know I should foocus on the lower body during the swing, but it seems that the position of the arms bother me since I am not able to swing on a consistent basis.
