    Hi Paul,

    Driving the ball with my lower body seems to work when concentrating on movements other than just closing my legs in a circular fashion. For example turning my body around to the left fast gives me the same result. I know you recommend not bumping the left hip at the start of the down swing, but by bumping my hip and turning the body, I get the same physical result as closing my legs. I get the correct timing in all three methods by feeling the club head at the top of the back swing and fully extending the arms to feel the centrifugal force of swinging the club around my body to the top of the back swing. Please comment.

    Paul, my last sentence is mis-stated. I meant to say I get the correct timing in all three ways by feeling the club head at the top of the back swing and extending my arms to feel the centrifugal force of the club swinging around my body to the top.


  3. What you are emphasizing is the follow-thru.

    Do you have a reference link to the follow thru

    • Michael,

      On the original site you hover over GOLF TIPS in the red navigation bar. Once the drop down shows up you hover over FULL SWING then go to FOLLOW THROUGH.

      This is also in the Dashboard in the full swing slides.

    I agree with this all – excellent. One other key though that I have found is “making sure I turn my BACK to the ball,” almost as far as I can.” Not the arms though. Beyond good extension, this gives me TIME get my hips and lower body moving FIRST. It sort of becomes a natural need then. Being back so far takes the initial need or want to get my arms moving moving first. Works for me, is all I can say. If I just get my arms back and not my upper body, (back to the ball) I seem to just go all arms from the top. No power, no lag, lots of blocked shots.

    • Bri,

      Glad you liked it. Thanks.

      Yes, you need time to get the lower moving. Too many people are way too fast. Too fast and you have minimal time to get the body moving.

      Sounds like you are on track.

  5. Thanks Paul,for this tip,got up to the driving range last week for the first time this year, I was anxious to try your truing method
    which i have been working on all winter with a wedge in the living room. At the range I started hitting various irons and was very pleased with the results then I tried hitting my driver turning my hips as fast as I could,sure enough a push fade every time.
    I slowed my swing and got back on track,I figured that my arms were not catching up to my hips,now that I know the solution to the problem I will give it a try next time….John

    Is there a video that goes over the right arm on the downswing? At the top of my swing I feel like my right forearm is straight up and down in my elbow is pointed out then on the downswing as a start turning my hips I feel my right bicep coming into my rib cage before impact.

    The way I understand this is that you can roll your wrists over while still keeping the arms soft? Are the forearms doing this mainly?

      The roll over is a drill. You roll them manually feeling your arms until you no longer put slice spin on your shots. Once you can do this you are not even thinking about rolling them. Instead you let them move by using your body. If so, they club should square. The face is open because you are locking the wrist. The drill unlocks the the wrists. Once you get this you are thinking body to straighten it out. You have spin (wrists) and body (direction). Get one. Then get the other. It really is that simple.

    Paul, Thanks a million for your great tips. I’m always looking forward to viewing your videos when I see your emails. using your dills and instructions for the last couple of years I am a much better ball striker.
    Question : on the down swing do you wait for your right shoulder ( right handed) to return to the position of the left shoulder? It seems if I don’t stay down through out the swing and see/feel my right shoulder under my chin I lose accuracy.

      Hello Ben, glad you are doing well and glad you are still with me. In no way to I think of or feel my shoulders in the downswing. I am firing my lower body. Remember, it’s like a spring. You coil from the top and uncoil from the bottom. The right shoulder would drop due to firing the lower body. This tilts your whole body back in the downswing. If you tilt the shoulder drops. I have tips on this. Go to the search box and enter Uncoil or shoulders or tilt and they should come up. If you can’t find them let us know.
