    Hi Paul
    Thank you for filming my tip idea.

    One more thing: If the aim stick is just secured by the rear belt look – i.e. not protruding too much, one can hit shots with the aim stick in place, so better replicating actual play on the course, and getting the feedback from the rear, vertical shaft.

      You’re welcome.

      I think that was the general idea. I liked it as I was doing it. Simple and you get feedback.

      Right, on the back end is a good idea too.

    Paul ,Very nice and useful tip .BRIAN CHAMBLEE ,the former pro ,turned TV golf commentator,”invented ” (A too big word in this case) a training aid on this principle a long time ago ..
    Asfor me it’s impossible to physically touch the legs ,even when I make a very decent turn of more than 90°:I have two prosthetic knees and the right knee has no “give ” (no flexibility laterally )to get it to touch the front leg ,but I do check that my turn is correct .
    To check if the hip turn speed improves ,it would help to measure it .
    I tried to measure the speed of the alignment rod you put in your belt with a SSR ,but this speed is too low for the radar to catch it .
    I saw somewhere you could use a mobile phone for this purpose

      Yes, you can’t measure the speed with any device we have. Yes, there was an app I had a few years ago that did it. Not sure what ever happened to it. I would have to do some digging.

    When I video my swing from behind and down the line it seems that my upper body and arms don’t rotate left soon enough after impact compared to model swings I have seen. Often after impact and halfway into the follow through the club shaft is almost vertical coming out the top of my head where model swings have the club shaft exiting at shoulder level or lower. I eventually get to the knees together and club behind the neck position but I don’t think I get there in the correct way. Your thoughts please.

    This gives really good feedback. I have done this as well. You can also use it to try and rotate your hips to 45 degrees at the impact position. Lay an alignment stick at 45 degrees and you try and match that at impact. I do this in slow motion and it really makes me turn. I was only 25 degrees or even less. It opened ended my eyes to how much I had to work on it. Great tip to share. Thanks for sharing.

    I also lay an alignment stick to check for a 45 degree hip turn at the top of my backswing and while doing that I check that my knees are half of that angle. At first my hips went well beyond 45 degrees and my rear leg was straight. After watching your tips on the backswing Position and torque, I knew I had to work on this as well.

      I like that you are trying to understand your own swing then doing the drills. This is what it takes to get it. Keep up the good work.
