    I noticed your head movement back on the backswing, more than I do, and then moving forward before you hit the ball. I’ve been trying to keep my head behind the ball as I swing through. Is this okay? Are your eyes fixed on the ball? I’d like to see this kind of footage in slo mo, also when you chip and putt. Very interesting.

      Don,

      You are working on keeping the head back to get the tilt. As I say in a lot of those tips get the tilt then do the touch the legs position so you are not hanging back too long. My head is moving forward as I turn and shift to get to the touch the legs position. So you are not working on moving your head forward as you come down. Your head would move if you are turning and shifting getting to the touch the legs position.

      I am looking at the ball but not fixated on it.

      The footage was in normal speed then slow mo right after. I’m having Pete slow it down even more so give it a day or two then watch it again.

    Paul,
    Very interesting! I would never have thought that your head moved as much as it does in these pictures.
    Maybe mine does also but I don’t think so.
    Maybe I’ll let it move a bit more.
    Thanks,
    Charlie

      Charlie,

      You can move it as much as you want going back so long as the weight is loaded 80% on the instep. When Tiger was #1 in the world he moved his head 5 inches. Moving the head sure gets you feeling the lower body. Give it a try.

    I agree with Don Lochary – would love to see these in slow motion. Too many things to look at in normal speed.

    Great Paul, thanks for trying this in answer to my request. I agree that if we could this in slow motion too it would help us to visualize what is going on at each stage. I love this short sequence though as it reinforces what I am seeing and helps me to have the confidence that I am doing at least some things right.

    Hi Paul, when I swing the golf club I see my left shoulder rotating clockwise and passing between my feet and the ball but close to the ball. I assume you see the same thing. I also assume the reason your shoulder does not appear in the video is that the camera is too remote from your eyes where it is located on the rim of your sun visor. We might get a more helpful picture of what you see if you strap the camera between your eyes. With your skill level I think you could swing the club semi-blinded without too much effort. A wee challenge for you and hopefully a more informative video.

      Ted,

      I was already semi blinded hitting the ball with the camera where I had it. Not sue it would show the shoulders. I would have to experiment with it. Plus, how do I attached the camera. Might have to tape it to my forehead. Not sure.

    Hi Paul, Greetins from New Zealand. Thanks for the response. You really want the camera lense to be on the line of sight between your eyes and the ball for the video to be most informative. The camera may need to be taped to your chin for the lense to be in the best location. Hopefully the camera has a wide enough field of vision to pick up the shoulder passing in front of the ball. The athletic tape used for strapping should do the job and is easy to remove from skin. You will probably need to use heaps as you don’t want the camera moving relative to your head as this will distort the impression of your view. Best of luck.
