    Paul ,I know already you don’t emphasize having the left arm straight”as an Arrow” at the top of the backswing ,allowing it to fold somewhat .
    I understand centrifugal force is going to take care naturally of this issue ,if you keep the arms POWERLESS ,they will stretch out by themselves.
    However starting the downswing with a straighter arm ought to be beneficial.
    Is’ nt therefore some merit to purposedly stretch out the left arm at the top by pulling it gently out with the right hand ?

      The arm should be stretching out on its own. It would be buckling because the muscles are contracting. If you are not contracting your muscles the arms would extend in the downswing. If you are pulling it down you are using your arms.

    Hi Paul,
    I’m really starting to feel the powerless arms and the ball is flying straight and long. However, when I have an iron in my hand I’m losing distance and coming up short. Is it because I’m still using my arms?
    Thank you

      For more distance you need to turn faster and have looser wrists. You may be trying to hit down with irons. It is the same swing as with woods. So stand tall. Coil and uncoil with the writs loose see if this does it. If not I would follow this tip:

    Hi Phil,

    I think I’m stretching out? I don’t seem to have any chicken wing.
    One thing I finally have is my trigger. This seems to help consistency?
    Playing with my new swing 1st time tomorrow!
    First time playing that I have a better understanding of the golf swing? ( I think? )

      If you are not doing a chicken wing then you would be working on coiling and uncoil, loosening your wrists and finally creating powerless arms. Hope you saw some good shots. This is what is to come if you keep working on it.

    Paul – appreciate the tip and am working on extending the arms. It is winter here and the only available practice area is the AstroTurf mats. Should i be adjusting the ball position or approach to hit off the mats. I find there is not give after contact and often times am flinching unconsciously. Should I be trying to pick the ball clean or another adjustment? Thanks in advance for your help, love your program!!

    What should your right elbow be doing in the swing?
