How large is that initial hip move? Some of your tips make it sound as though the initial hip move stops when your belt buckle is facing the ball. Others make it seem as though the initial hip move goes past the ball. Or does it keep going as far as possible? I’m confused on that issue. I’d appreciate it if you could clarify that.

You are driving your legs and hips until your back leg touches your forward leg int the follow through. The initial move down it to take your belt buckle and immediately fire it at the ball but it keep turning. As noted in this tip I referred to my left cheek being visible. You would not be able to see this if I didn’t keep turning. Here is the position you need to be going to:

Over 21 minutes on a position that you don’t care about. Impressive Paul!
No doubt. People insist on knowing about it.
Great stuff here. Biggest problem I have been having in achieving the checkpoint is the foot lift as you mention, but I was also not allowing my shoulders to be more open at impact (or at least that was my mental picture as I was trying to maintain more separation thru the swing). I am guessing that both of those rob distance as I am not seeing the distance I expect, especially mid irons. Driver is solid and I think that is because I allow the shoulders to open more cause I am less tentative with that club abnd it has the extra mass that somewhat forces me to rotate the shoulders.
I like that it is now just little changes that are making my consistency better and better. This series is very good.
Just get those hips moving. Do the favorite drill nightly in the backyard with a driver.

You get separation by firing the lower very quick. If you do, the upper will follow thus separating.

Paul, this is a great summation of all of your previous tips. Also, this is in your book. If anyone in ignition golf does not have your book, they should get it.

A lot of it is in there. I flipped through it. These go into even more detail. Only 3 more left then back to tips.
Great to see/hear the checkpoints.
But one slightly confusing thing…the string/weight analogy would suggest that the arms and club should be at 90 degrees to body, clearly not the case. And it would seem that different rotational speeds of the body would change the angle to the body and the club head position. So, on a shot I want to move my legs/hips very quickly on, the ball should be further from my body at set up… Is that right?

Glad you like the checkpoints.
I have said for 25 years the club would not be at 90 to the body. If it swung around your body a few times it would be. From the top to impact is 1/4 of a second. Even if you twirled a weight on string it would not be at 90 until a few revolutions. It is going toward 90 to the axis is how I explain it. If it is moving toward 90 degrees it is flattening as opposed to moving away from the 90 degrees (over the top).
You don’t want to alter you setup other the the length of the club. Driver may be a little farther away but that is literally 1″ if you want. You need to watch this tip:
