    After your backswing is complete and you are feeling the tightness, do you try to maintain the tightness on the downswing? If so, do you have any thoughts on how that tight feeling can be maintained on the way down?

    Hi Paul,
    I came back to this tip in order to find some guidance on the following issue. For some weeks now I felt I was kind of losing my ability to build torque. I noticed I lost yardage and today I realized the main reason was probably because my hips were turning far too much. I focused during my practice session on this specific point. What I basically tried to do was “resisting” when coiling, in order to get the tightness feeling you mention. As a mental image, I tried to “not move the hips” (of course, this is an image, they did turn). After a series of balls, I noticed that the carry of my ball increased quite significantly (I would say the difference was 1 to 2 clubs with irons). Now, as this is not something you gave as a drill, I would like to be sure it is ok for me to work like that.
    thanks again for your great site.
