  1. You teach coiling the upper body while resisting with the lower body which creates tension in the back muscles while at the same time keeping tension out of the arms and hands. I am having trouble putting the two together. I am either too tense or too loose all over. The easy swings you make in this video don’t seem to create much coil tension. Your thoughts?

    • John,

      You get the coil and use your arms. After you get good at coiling you turn your arms off. You are trying to get everything all at once and you are not goo at coiling. After you get the coil it will become clear you no longer need to hit so you can and will turn them off. No spring and you will hit with arms because you have no other way to do it.

  2. Deliberate practice refers to a special type of practice that is purposeful and systematic. While regular practice might include mindless repetitions, deliberate practice requires focused attention and is conducted with the specific goal of improving performance. Wikipedia.

    So I went to the driving range (TopGolf, actually) and put the tip into practice. I, for one, am becoming more familiar with the positions. The tip allowed me to focus on one thing at a time. I am more skilled, now, with “touch the legs” and “touch the head”. I felt that repeating a slower practice swing provided the added bonus of working on powerless arms.

    Paul, I believe your tip incorporates aspects of deliberate practice. At points, my attention and focus waned. So I grabbed a cool drink to refocus. Alternating irons helped too. When I saw my shots hit near the target circles, I got pumped. Gotta love those large point totals.

    One hour down – 9,999 hours to go.

    Great tip. Thnks.

    • Anthony,

      I like the term deliberate practice. Yes, this is what I want people to do. Working on your swing is work. So people need to do the work. The payoff is a great swing which hits great shots. Keep at it.

  3. i tried this tip yesterday, and is the best. you can see and feel in the three swings if they are ok, and you surely can tell if you are swinging to hard. even if i don’t get the positions right, i still hit a good ball. i can see this is the way i will use this program to get the paul wilson swing. try it

    • John,

      Very good. Definitely keep doing it. Use this to get looser and to work on certain positions.

  4. Excited about what I’m learning. I’m working on the follow through and touching my legs. It was really awkward at first but I get it. My shots are getting better, I’m not consistent yet. If I cancel it comi ng

  5. I can feel it coming

  6. Quite a useful lesson Paul.
    I never go to a driving range ,I just play on the golf course .
    I restrict to the minimum the practice swings ,which slow the game and a sure sign of indecision to me :if you trust your swing ,just go and swing right away .
    I usually take just one practice swing behind the ball , looking up the line I will play and selecting the piece of turf in front of the ball I have to swing over to get the ball flying in the proper direction .I have to feel the “Turn the Hips” ,and “Touch your legs ,touch your Head “positions before I get going .
    If I don’t feel these positions I start all over again until I feel them
    Then I step to the ball and I swing ,the least possible time after the practice swing , not to forget the practice swing feeling :it works !

    • Raymond,

      Yes, the practice swings before every shot is important. If you do it in one that’s fine too. Got to do at least one. Need to have the thoughts/feelings of what you are about to it before you do it.
