    I have worked on this a lot. One thing I did was to lay another alignment stick down at 45 degrees. This helped actually see the 45 degree line. Then while swinging I would stop at impact and see if my hips aligned with the stick. To take it a step further, I put a 3rd alignment stick thru my belt loops in front. When I did this it really showed how short I was of 45 degrees. It took me a lot of work to get to 45 degrees. It’s a totally different feeling. I’m still working on it but it’s gett better.

      Glenn,

      Glad you see it. This was kind of the point. I saw the stick one day and hit home that everyone should be using the stick. Simple.

      I do have a belt loop stick tip too so we are on the same page there as well.

      Glad you are working on it and are starting to do it. This is one of the main differences between pros and ams.

    All the sports where you throw an object require you to turn your hips aggressively towards the target: tennis serving ,weight putting ,javelin ,discus throwing ,boxing (Throw a punch with the right hand ),so golf is no exception .But you need to have flexible hips and work on them (See JEREMY KLINKHAMER to find out what exercises you should practise )

    I have tried for a couple of years to adjust my swing according to your teaching. But just recently you have provided several tips which helped me put it all together (or a lot of it together). One–This tip about hips being 45 degrees at impact. Two–comparing the one piece takeaway to my putting, which is a one piece takeaway. Three–keeping back knee flexed and buckle seemingly pointing at the ball. With two counts, my backswing is done with my upper body, the downswiing with the lower part (hips & legs). There is so much more, of course, but these have really helped. THANKS,
    Bill (Charles)

      Charles,

      Very good. I love it when the pieces are coming together for people. I refer to it as a puzzle. As you put the pieces together you see the whole picture.

      Keep working on those pieces as they are vital in a great swing. Once you are doing them without thinking about them add new ones and so on.

    PAUL
    AT IMPACT AS THE HIPS ARE AT 45 DEGREES WHERE SHOULD THE CHEST BE ANGLED AT THAT POINT?
    IN MY EFFORT TO FOCUS ON THE ROTATION OF THE LOWER BODY MY CHEST ROTATION SEEMS TO LAG.
    HAVE YOU A TIP WHICH ADDRESSES THE LOCATION OF THE BELT BUCKLE VERSUS THE CHEST AT IMPACT.
    THANK YOU FOR THE WONDERFUL WORK THAT YOU ARE DOING
