  1. Is this “Sit on a chair “position part of the “lowering of the body move used by the best pro’s to “spring up ” in the through swing to get more power ?

    • Raymond,

      This sit on a chair is the keep the flex. This is the start of how to use the legs to power the swing. So you need to even be in position first to fire the lower. Take a look at your swing from down the line and see if in fact you are keeping this flex as you hit the top.

  2. Do you have any thoughts on moving your right knee angle in a bit towards the left knee on backswing?

    • Tom,

      This would create too much resistance. When this happens and you coil it will actually throw you onto the outside of the right foot creating a sway. Get the feeling the right knee is pointing forward as you coil back the shoulders. This will create the resistance you should have. Keep in mind the right knee does swivel as you coil. This is a feeling of it pointing forward as you coil.

    This has been one of the most helpful hints for me. Until I concentrated on this, I was continually failing to hit the ball solidly. Thanks!

    Hi Paul. Sorry this is off topic but have you ever considered doing a live YouTube presentation?? I think it would be well received by the members here and all of your you tube subscribers.

    • Glenn,

      I have. I have also looked at doing my own TV show. Renting a studio etc. This is a huge commitment and I need to be 100% before pulling the trigger as there are bi costs involved. Not sure I am up to it but if I do commit then I will do it full force and do it right. I will let everyone know. Thanks.

  5. Paul ,I don’t see what interest there is in doing so .HARVEY PENICK was one of the best golf coaches ever .He just had THE LITTLE RED BOOK to make himself known .His teaching was a model of simplicity and it worked !

  6. Good day Paul,
    This is the clincher tip for me. The problem I had at the top of the B/S was imbalance.Was leaning forward too much so I was in compensation mode in the transition and was still out of balance at the F/T. So for me this bar stool drill helped me to finally maintain balance from point A to point B… Finally much more regularity at each swing…I feel in balance and confidence is right there too..Thanks a million Paul

    • Stephane,

      Balance it vital. This is a consistency game. If you are out of balance it is going to be tough to be consistent.

      The flex in the knee is tricky so give it time to master it. Just do lots of practice swings.

  7. Oh and this give me total confidence for maximum solid torque at the top because of balance over there…Superb drill

    • Stephane,

      Building a solid base is vital to get the spring-like effect. Glad you liked it. Thanks.

  8. Paul great lesson, I realized I was doing this during my backswing. My question to u is upon keeping my right knee flexed I feel a tightness in the right hip area as I coil, is this the feeling I should be feeling upon getting to point A. when the right leg was staying straight I didn’t have that feeling. I find that continuing to watch your tips I find more important information I missed upon watching your videos. A lot of information! Thanks Tom

    • Tom,

      Yes, this will tighten the lower body. Don’t be so tight that it hampers your coil though. Your shoulders should be pulling the hips the hips pulling the knees into position. If you are too tight you lose the ratio and you don’t coil enough.

      Glad you like the tips. The info is in there. As you keep watching them you will learn more and more.
