  1. Paul l am doing exactly what u said. Because of some issue I am unable to play and practice so I practice my swings using the keys u suggested (coil, hinge, touch your legs, touch the back of my head). Some times I independently add uncoil before touch my legs.
    I have been doing this for about a month, I will start playing soon and I feel confident I am going play much better. I intend to practice indoor first so I can see my swing then I will go to range after.

    • Alan,

      Very good. It will pay off big time in the near future. Just keep making the positions perfect.

  2. Paul, that was a great tip. You have changed my outlook on golfing. It sounds very logical. Yes, I won’t hit as many plastic balls in my yard as much anymore. Do you coach an golfer on the PGA Tour.

    • Ken,

      This is why I cannot believe you are not in the low 80’s right now. Practice differently now. Get the swing. Then later you can go back to hitting balls. Practice swings, short game practice and playing. That’s it.

      I do not have any tour players. I am not at a course where they are so I do not have the connections. I almost had a few but my connections to them fell apart. It’s boring anyway to teach good players. I have done so in the past. I like taking a bad swing and making it look great. That is exciting to me.

  3. It is very helpful for me to start with the finish and swing backwords then forward. My new thought is to ignore the ball and just think of the finish position. Equals more distance. Thanks.

    • Joseph,

      Very good. So many people don’t give any thought to the follow through yet this is the most important position in the swing.

  4. Hey Paul,
    Wow, I felt as though you were talking to me directly in this video. I am only a year and a half old to golf and my first year I did exactly what you said. Just hitting with my arms at the practice range hoping I would get a good shot once in a while.
    Because of your videos over the last few months though, I understand wrist cock and release feeling that whipping action, with hips turning first. It was awkward at first, but now I feel it feels weird not to have my hips turning first to allow the club shaft drop through.
    With less effort I’m experiencing more power!

    • John,

      Glad I got to you before you put in 20 years of hitting. It is so much harder to fix the longer you do it. Stay focused on the positions and building a great swing. You will have if for life!

    Great tip 😉 I have a cut down club with a practice grip on that I swing inside now that it’s winter here. Is that a good way to work on the positions?

      Glad you liked it.

      That’s great you cut down a club. This is what I swing all of the time at home.

      No ball means you can clearly be thinking of positions and making them perfect. You can also do the trigger but be careful swinging hard indoors.
