    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.
    Thank you!

    Over 21 minutes on a position that you don’t care about. Impressive Paul!

    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.

    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.

    • Ken,

      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.

  5. Paul,

    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?
