  1. I understand the concept and its results are beyond belief.
    In my case, I can now accelerate my hip rotation to speeds I never thought possible.
    The drawback is that I am not repeating this arc enough to have it give me confidence when I swing, resulting in the unmistakable pull that immediately tells me I am back to using my arms. I am unsure as to what the learning curve is for this unlearning process I find myself buying into.
    As always I can’t wait for the next lesson plan.

    One more thing, Would a giant hula hoop or whatever it is called be of use to me during my road to Mastery of the no arms swing? Gotta get rid of the pulls.

    How often have you told us your mass/weight/ string theory? And how often do I know the answer but when I go to play or practice I start relying on my arms to hit poor shots? It’s like I know all the answers to the big test yet I don’t believe them when it’s time to take it, and give MY answers instead and end up getting a D- every time.

    Those two or three great shots I get when I play nine holes, I always say “that’s Paul’s coaching!”

    The good news is I’m just starting my second year of playing (I have already got a birdie on par 3)and I know I’ll get better especially with a great video like this.

      That is why I keep saying it. I need people to hear what I am saying and see it differently. You are and have been doing great. Keep it simple though. I need to know you have mastered the positions. Then it is coil going back. Your wrist by now should be setting and hinging. Once at the top you are thinking legs and hips to uncoil to the touch the legs position and let the arms go (no hitting) ending up in the touch the head position. Hit it, hold it and check it every time. Then see the big picture. You have a spring that coils and uncoils. You have a hinge that hinges and rehinges. That’s it. You then watch your ball to tell what is or isn’t working. You have a couple of drills that you go to to fix the issue. People can and do make this way too complicated when really it is simple.

    I’m finding the powerless arms slowly but surely on the practice range first, and swinging at slow speeds with all clubs and it’s really starting to happen….Thank you Paul for your invaluable help with the golf swing!!!!!!

      I love hearing it. Slow is the word. If people just keep whacking at it as hard as they can when do they every change anything? Need to see it and do it differently. It is hard for some people to grasp this concept but I know for a fact that whacking golf balls will never work. This is what I used to do and it was a disaster. Keep at it. It is coming.

    As soon as I have a driver in my hands I can sense the weight at the end of the shaft and swing slow (interms of the arms I mean). It is actually a light weight driver, but I guess as it is longer then other clubs and the shaft is light and slender I sense the weight at the end.

    I don’t sense that with the rest of my clubs and I have a a problem turning my arms off.

    I am toying with the idea of adding a bit of weight to the end of the shaft to see if that might help to just let the club swing naturally. It thought about this while abroad and practising with some clubs with steel shafts which felt heavy and strange (mine are carbon fibre). With the heavier clubs I found it was easier to let the club do its own swing.

    I am not suggesting this as a permanent change to my clubs but as a practice aid.

    I would love to hear your comments. Is this bad idea?

      I don’t like them too heavy and too heavy will be hard to hit. Graphite can be light. I would take one of your clubs to a club fitter and find out how much the weigh. You should get them around D2 (they will know what that means). They will either pull the grips and put weigh down the shafts or put lead tape on them. Be interesting to find out if in fact they are too light.
