    Does this mean your against a SLIGHT FORWARD PRESS to start your swing?

    Paul ,I understand therefore that the forward shaft lean is a consequence of you lagging the club into impact .
    There’s one issue however where you do have to lean “manually “the shaft forward ,that is when you hit a low shot under tree limbs with the ball in the back of your stance.
    Regarding club lag ,it has much to do with the flexibilty and looseness of the wrists :could JEREMY show us some drills to improve the flexibilty and how to increase the amplitude of movement of the wrists ?

      I was not talking about that shot. For that shot you would be getting the lean due to the ball back in your stance and hands forward.

      Make sure you ask Jeremy on one of his tips so we will get the question and can address it.

    Paul, another good tip and video. Your how to explanations make it real and the added emphasis on wrist action, straight arms, and uncoiling that were covered here allow the viewer to see how, and more importantly, why it works. It can then be repeated and incorporated. BTW – the rolling wrist action (I practice it almost every day now) has really improved my swing, thanks to you!

      That’s great. The roll over is a very important part of the swing. If you keep doing it you will make it nice and smooth and have it forever. Once this is working you switch your focus to coiling and uncoiling. At that point you have a great swing.

    Hi Paul,

    I video taped my swing recently and it showed that I do not have forward shaft lean at impact. It also showed that I maintained my lag when coming down but around waist high I loose the lag and sort of throw my right hand at the ball.

    I have been working on your ear to ear lag drill and it is working wonders for my distance(the wrist is loosening up). I was wondering if there is a drill you can recommend so that I get to fix that last minute casting and also get forward shaft lean?

    Thank you.
