    Great Tip. I still need someone behind me to watch where my ball went!!

    Also, any thoughts on one length irons?

    See you in Nov.

      I was using them for a while. They are great, no complaints. I just switched to a different brand…new toys.

    Hi Paul, from Adelaide, South Australia, Australia. Really enjoy your Playing Tips.
    An old saying in golf was ‘hit and spit’, which translates to your tip to delay your reaction…and in today’s environment, its not OK tp spit!!!

    What grips do you have on your clubs… they look interesting?

    I have visited Vegas twice over the years on the way to Utah for snow skiing. Hope to get over there for some golf in the future. Cheers, Ron.

    I notice that you slightly drag the club back at the start of the backswing, particularly with the 7 iron. Do you recommend this action as a way to stay loose?

    I also find your tip about standing tall at address to be very helpful for rotation. Slumping over at address really encourages coming over the top on the forward swing.

    Thanks to you, I took up golf after a ten-year hiatus. I was never a good golfer. I shot a 40 on 9 holes this morning using your tips and advice. Thank you!!

    Thanks Paul for this tip. Played a couple of days ago and had some thin shorts. I went to the range this morning and worked on this tip. Can definitely worked well. I can see that this is still a habit and will take time to cure and stop doing all together.

    Hi, Paul. Your observations and insights into the problems most golfers have are very helpful. This tip is also very good. The slow motion videos of this tip also emphasize how much back tilt of the spine you have (and I have seen the same on numerous other pro golfers’ videos). This would be a great video to emphasize this back tilt emphasis. I remember watching slow motion videos of George Knudson hitting balls. He had a beautiful swing (Jack Nicklaus said a million dollar swing, although not so complimentary about his putting). He also had a lot of back tilt of his spine through the downswing. Does it take a lot of strength to have your legs and lower body that much forward relative to your upper body and spine as you move through impact? Thanks again for all of your help.
