Here is a swing thought that helped me “feel” powerless arms on the downswing: At the top of the backswing, I consciously try to keep my left humerus (I’m right handed) against my chest when I initiate my downswing. So, at the top, I’m thinking “Keep left arm against chest, straighten left leg (my downswing trigger)”. It’s amazing. My hips and left shoulder just drag my left arm around as I uncoil. By the time it gets to the ball my right arm is almost fully extended and the club face is squared.

This is a good thought. I did a tip on connection that may explain it a little more:
Keep it up.

I’ve been a member for a year and a half and have become a huge fan of your pitching technique- wow. If only I could get it in the full swing. When I fire the lower legs, the right shoulder seems to flight outwards like a classic over the top move. Maybe I’m over doing it, but my local pga pro is insisting I get the feeling of dropping my arms/hands to correct this. I seemed to be continually going 2 steps forward and 3 steps backwards and it’s so frustrating. I do 100 practice swings with your method every morning. Regards Warren

Glad you like the pitching technique. This is a version of your real swing.
Ii have done tons of tips on the issue you are having. You are starting the lower body and immediately shifting the weight onto the forward leg thus tilting your whole body left in the downswing sending you over the top.
Here is the tip:

Hi Paul. Just wondering if moving the head forward in the downswing could lead to a lower trajectory? I saw these bad shots but after focusing on head behind the ball I got back to launching the ball better.

I could because you could de-loft the club. Anytime you are hitting too low you are de-lofting the club. So check this like weight distribution, hand position, head position, grip etc.

Hi Paul. When thinking of the down swing trigger (i like to move belt buckle left of target), is that the only thing you think of untill the end of the swing? So for me I should only be focusing on where my beltbuckle is throughout the swing?
You would be thinking of this initially then how the legs are physically touching at the follow through. If I had a flaw I would be isolating the flaw and thinking about it until it was fixed. Example would be flat footed on the back foot. I would only be thinking of lifting it. Once I got it I would go back to thinking of the hips etc. Your swing is really looking great. You should be starting to see a dramatic improvement.
Thanks Paul. Yes hitting lots of great shots but find myself losing it during rounds. Hard to isolate the thoughts to body and not ball but will keep on working on it and force myself I guess 😉
