Paul is there a time where I should be thinking of slowing my hip rotation, at impact it feels so fast that it has no where to go
but to stop turning any suggestions thanks
July 21, 2013
In every swing the hips actually come to a complete stop after impact. Although it may not feel you like you are doing this you are. They stop. The club catches up then they level out and keep turning.
If you are driving them so hard that you are blowing it right then slow down a little. You can drive too hard.

paul enjoy all your lessons. you talk about no tension in your arms,and wrist at address. i heard you say the grip pressure is like a 2/10.do you apply more grip pressure at impact,or on the downswing? if so how much on a scale of 1/10.if i keep my grip pressure 2/10 at impact,i seem to lose control of my club face.i do come over the top some times,the fast hip rotation helps stop this.
It should be 2 out of 10 at address. It then tightens to 8 out of 10 as you hit the top of the backswing. The grip is secure but your wrists are loose.

Fine Drill ,Paul ,to keep your hip rotation tuned when waiting on the tee ,in addition to the two ones you showed us in another video “”My favorite drills “.
You can also use a tree or a post to fix the upper body , apart from the Golf Kart .
For those who want to work on their Hip Turn ,I signal the “POWER HIP ROTATOR “,a training device by Golf Pro’s DENNIS PUGH and SIMON HOLMES (www.powergolf.co.uk),which consists of rubber tubings you fix to your thighs :it’s better to train the Hip turn with than the Rubber Tubings of MIKE BAUMAN (THE ULTIMATE SWING TRAINER).
Of course there’s the SOMAX POWER HIP TRAINER ,but apart from being cumbersome and expensive I never could get it from BOB PRITCHARD ,who wrote me I was to old to improve (!!!)and refused to sell it to me :I had paid for it and he refunded the money!
Hip Turn and Arms swing need to be carefully synchronized together to hit it straight !
If one speeds up ,the other one has too!

Thank you very much for your job, great tip. It’s helping me a lot. I’ve started to follow your tips on video and on your book for a few months, my game changed a lot. I’ve started to play golf for 2 years and broke 100 just one time (99)… I’m in the middle of Dave Breslow “Wired to win” coaching and I’ve taken my first lesson with Pete Mitchell on Skype, great teacher too. And guess what, I’ve broken 90 3 weeks ago !!! I did 88 on a par 72, great for me. The best is that I’m consistently playing near 90 now. But it’s not enough, I want to be better than that… Mental game is very very important because last week I was playing my best golf, 40 on the first 9 holes (par 36) but unfortunately I did the worst last 9 holes… 50 !!!
I thank you again guys because I enjoy golf more and more everyday.
I keep 2 things in mind, effortless arms and hip rotation !!!
Paul, can you tell me please what do you think about the Somax Hip Trainer ?

That’s great news. I love hearing about people improving. It never gets old.
I like what you are working on. Just keep doing one thing at a time.
The Somax hip trainer is a good idea. Seems pretty expensive though. Why not just get an Ultimate Swing Trainer?

When rotating the body is it rotating:
1. Parallel to the ground?
2. Slightly upwards?
3. Slightly downwards?
October 21, 2018
Your body would be tilted back as you hit the ball. This should explain it. You would turn parallel if you had your feet together because you would only have one axis.

In watching you practice the hip turn I noticed that when you used the cart, your right hand was below your left. This is opposite to the location of the hands on the club. Is there a reason, or does it really matter? Many thanks for you clear and helpful instruction!
Paul,Thanks for this useful reminder To be effective in the fast hip turn ,you have strengthen the muscles commanding the move .This is not an usual move so these muscles are by nature lazy,weak and untrained .
I don’t remember JEREMY KLINKHAMER demonstrating the exercises to strengthen the muscles involved .Could you please tell me which are those exercises if I missed them
