Paul ,one of the most important building blocks of YOUR méthod .
It’s excellent .
HANK HANEY advocates a flat plane ,an in to out swing ,very much to the right when going in the throughswing .
I tried it ,it does give me more Clubhead Speed ,but It’s not NATURAL for me ,and I feel uncomfortable with it .
M’y swing is more ” I take the club back ,and then I take it through ” ,it’s linéar ,not circular ( WELL a wee bit circular with this driving the hips of yours )
Should I stay as I am ,or change ?
The circular will come from your body rotation. You should not be swinging flat. Not one long driver does this type of swing. I tried it many years ago and I lost power and hit it right.

I didn’t see this tip before my cry for help. Maybe this a good thing.

I saw a slow Motion video of RICKIE FOWLER:in his downswing ,hé seems to bring the club closer to his body than other players .If true ( I’m not sure!),this would contradict my assumption ,developed above ,That the club MOVES faster in a circular Motion around the axis constituted by the body.Does RICKIE FOWLER have a différent swing than the ” classical ” GOLFERS ,such as RORY Mc ILROY?
No idea what video you were looking at. He is going to Harmon now so he’s making some better changes.
Paul, I wish I would have known about you 13 yrs. ago when I first took up golf. I made every error there is. That gentleman mentioned Ricky Fowler’s arms close to the body. I assume they are attached and his body is the main motor swinging his arms. I always used to his the ball fat because I was an arm swinger. Now, it is rare for me to hit it fat because my body moves the club more on line. I broke 100 after I started listening to your tips and drills. I got my friend started with you and we always say to each other that Paul said this.
Not sure what he was referring to as I did not see the video.
I made every mistake too. Not fun when you have no clue what to work on nothing you try works.
Thank you for the recommendation. I truly appreciate it.

I have been doing like you suggested and have been taking three practice swings and then hit the ball, my greens in regulation have improved so much I couldn’t believe how much more consistent I’ve been.
Good stuff. I say everything for a reason. Now you know why I wanted you to do 3 practice swings. It’s all about the movement not the ball. Hope everyone else sees this and starts doing it too.

I have practiced relaxing my wrists and letting them turn on their own as well I have been trying to extend my arms forward toward the target. seem to work well with irons but with the driver almost all my shots are going or hooking left (I’m right handed) I do feel that I am turning my hips first but I must not be doing it enough or perhaps incorrectly. When I play I aim more to the right to compensate but I know that is not the answer. Do yo have any tips to help me?
You need to turn your hips way faster to get ahead of the club coming down or your grip is too strong. If you are hooking it without trying to hook it this is a good indication of a grip issue.
Make sure you are doing these drill nightly:

For right now i am just trying to get my arms powerless and my wrists loose and hit with my legs. IF i ever get to that point where it is an unconscious act, i will try to swing faster, but then this tip sounds like i have to impose that action of roll over on my arms and wrists, which contradicts the powerless aspect. Is the thought to make that rolling over so ingrained that you can eventually turn your brain off to it and get back to the powerless arms and loose wrists?
I have said many times if you are working on a position or drill you will feel your arms. Once you master what you are trying to do you turn them off.
When To Use Your Arms: http://ignitiongolf.com/when-to-use-arms/
So yes, you roll, roll roll until you get rid of all slice spin. I have literally had people do this in 4 balls. Then you let the roll happen and use your legs to straighten it out.

Hello Paul. I have been following you for a while now and I am coming along slow but sure. Thank you for the the help. I am an average to better player now. I always hook my driver when I place the ball at my left heel. If I bring it back to maybe a 7 iron position they go dead straight or maybe a slight fade. Is this a sign that my legs ad hips are not turning fast enough? Or should I just continue to have the ball back for a while. I am in my mid sixties and maybe I just can’t turn fast.

Is the sensation that you wrists feel like a whip on the downswing?
