    Merry Christmas Paul,
    You will agree with me that one needs gauges,to measure speed and pressure.
    Now,this is the best way of determining speed. Thanks.
    Could you please come up with how to easily determine the pressure between the front of the armpits and the upper arms
    during the address.

      Glad you liked it thanks.

      The pressure under the armpits at address is a slight pressure. If you are locking them against your chest too hard you will tighten your arms as you take the club back. So I would say it is about 3 out of 10.

    This is a very clever way to rythm THE start of THE backswing,never seen this tip before !I understand you don’t have a single rythm in THE takeaway and backswing :you start slowly ,then increase speed progressively up to THE top .
    How do you find THE optimum speed in THE downswing,without “forcing “THE movement and keep a smooth swing ?

      The rotational speed of your body should be telling your arms how fast to come down. If you body rotates slowly in life and they are telling your arms how fast to swing how could you not have a smooth swing?

    Hi Paul,
    Whenever I want to slow things down, relax and have a smooth swing I think “Freddie Couples.” Maybe I should think “Freddie” more often.

      You should think Freddie all the time. This is a great image. So is Ernie Els.

    Hi Paul it’s working but I need to focus on keeping my head behind the ball. Do you have a tip on that?
