This is an excellent reminder. As a very slightly better player (9 handicap leftie) my bad shots are almost always pulls. On a good day when my driving is fine I can still quite regularly pull my short irons 8 to wedge.
I will try to discipline myself to stay behind the ball and I think you did a recent tip about keeping your head over your rear instep until you hit the ball which should also reinforce it.

Very good. You remembered that other tip. They go hand in hand. Just got to do it every day. Practice swings over and over.
Is it a fact that longer clubs like the 4, 5, 6 and up promote more of an over the top than lower clubs?
It’s not the length of the club. It’s you trying to hit these clubs longer. The harder you hit, the more over the top you will come. Let the club do the work (ever heard that one?). This is what they are talking about.
Thanks for the tip. Couldn’t figure out why the ball was going left. Big help.
Very good. Glad you liked it. I see so many people doing this when really it’s simple.
Great tip. I’m trying to imagine how many lessons I would need to get it though my head the cures that I get by being a member of Ignition Golf.
Exactly. The answers are all here.
Great reminder Paul, I do suffer from this frequently when my body works faster than my brain. One problem I do often get when I try to manually tilt back is I tend to over do the tilt and this make me come through with a huge open face which results in a sever push resembling a shank. It happens mainly with the shorter clubs 8 to wedge and gets me into a lot for trouble. Any suggestions how to avoid this?
See the over tilt as a good thing not a bad thing. Get used to the tilt. To reduce it you get off the back foot. I did mention fat shots from working on the tilt. This would be overtilted hanging back. What was the fix? Touch the legs faster. This would get you off the back foot thus not over tilting.
I don’t think your doing this though if you are shanking. You need to follow these tips:

Really works. Angle behind and touch your legs.
It sure does. Glad you see it.

Excellent tip – really need this one at present; have club championship this weekend.
I was also thinking that I have a tendency to pull/ pull-hook when I am losing stability in my lower body, i.e ‘seeing the grass’ between my knees, causing the club to whip inside on the takeaway, but I also believe I am shifting forward.

Exactly, no lower and you will hit with the arms. This usually happens later in the round:

Good luck on the weekend. Don’t hit great shots to warm up.

Your thought is to hit fairways and greens. I would prefer you to swing at 50%. You need to be Mr. Smooth. Do that and you should do well. Let us know.

I never heard of the “watch the dimple through impact” tip before. One of my recurring problems is lateral movement of the whole body. Being a baseball pitcher and playing a lot of softball, I always want to move toward the target, it feels powerful even though I know it leads to pushes and push fades. Can’t wait to try this to see if can keep me from the lateral movement.
Yes, give this a try. If you get ahead of it it’s not good but you also don’t want to slide either. So it’s a shift and turn but the shift will occur if you get to the touch the legs position. You need to think turn while watching the back of the ball. I included another way to do it too:

Also, if you slide I would watch the tips below:

I pull hook my driver and push my irons. I have video taped my swing and I definitely come from the inside and have enough tilt. It feels like my hands snaps shut with the driver. Have read you can pull and pull hook a driver by coming from too much from the inside which will cause your hands to snap close. This is what I think I do. I have tried keeping the face open which helps but not consistent. I never pull slice.

I do this as well. Inside path but club closes. I think I must not be turning arms off enough. Not sure off the fix but would love to know!

If you are hooking the golf ball then you want to make sure that your grip is neutral first of all. A strong grip will shut the face and cause hooks. Start going slower, this will begin to turn the arms off when hitting shots. Start at a 50% effort. Then slowly build up power using your legs and hips not your hands and arms.
