    Hey paul
    I have found that sometimes I’m losing sight of the ball when coiling my upper body why is this?

      This is you either trying to avoid the tightness of coiling or you are trying to coil back too far.

      When you coil it gets tight. Human nature doesn’t like you to be tight so it looks for a way out. For you, this way out would be raising up instead of continuing to coil. I did a tip on it here:

      How Human Nature Affects the Body Coil:

      If you are simply trying to go back too far then just go back until you start to feel the tightness of the coil. This should get you to approx. 90 degrees. Once you fee it you go the other way. In other words, don’t try to crank the shoulders too much.

  2. What’s the most amazing here ,and cannot be explained ,nor replicated ,is the utmost speed with which Paul unravels smoothly and accelerates his hips going forwards in the throughswing.
    Even working hard on this part of the swing cannot bring me to half Paul’s hip rotation speed .
    I am puzzled and bewildered on how to get there .
    There must be a trick I don’t seem to grasp !!!
    Please help,Paul !

      It is just years of driving the lower body hard. I know it doesn’t look like I am swinging hard but I am really using the legs. They turn my body. My arms are connected to my body so they move however fast my body tells them to.

    It is winter in Northeast NJ and I am only practice swinging in my house. I seem to be unable to keep my body back when I initiate the hip turn; hips & body move together. Should I be feeling the sensation of the hips moving before the upper body? Am I possibly rotating my hips more than I should in the coil?

    Your method really resonates with me. I have been golfing for 40 years & am fast approaching 70 & have always struggled with inconsistency.

    Thanks, Paul!

    Great tip, learned that both arms are really close to the body, I have so much more space than you showed, something for me to work on in my coiling
