    Paul,

    Does this tip and body tilt apply to the same degree with both irons and woods.

    Thx Roy

    Paul, this question pertains to this tip and all the other tips you post. I had an interesting revelation. For five days I practiced the positions you teach us in my home without a ball. I actually felt the positions and did well (actually very well) from point A to point B. I videoed my swing and everything looked pretty good. I went to the range to hit some balls and everything fell apart. I finally realized that the biggest detriment to my swing is the golf ball. My backswing was short and my follow thru was not complete.

    My question is how do we get that hit impulse out of our swing both mentally and physically. This problem is slowing my progress.

      Roy,

      So like everyone else you got the course and started to think “hit the ball” not “do the positions and forget the ball.” What you must realize is you are doing something new. You are not good at it. You need to at least do it on the course. So you go out late a night with the goal of doing the new swing on the course. Have a few balls in your pocket and hit a shot at 50% of your normal speed, hold the positions and check it. If you don’t do it try it again and again.

      At the same time you are constantly doing the practice swings at home, range and when you play getting used to the positions and the feedback associated with each position. You need to care more about the positions then the ball right now. If you are thinking of the hitting the ball you will just do your old golf swing that does not work. This is new an different. It will take a while to make the switch. When you do though, you will never look back.

  3. Paul,

    This one is going in my faves folder. I’m getting the positions down pretty well but am finding that there are some “cleanup” items I need to take care of, e.g., stand tall and move the head. This is a great way to do incorporated head movement without help from anyone. I put a tee in the ground and align my shadow edge with it to get a better perspective of the movement amount.

    I keep telling you this. My open question: Why are you the only one teaching this stuff? I’ve been a Golf Digest and Golf subscriber for 50 years, have taken multiple lessons and ordered countless instructional DVDs and I have never once heard anyone clarify that the golf swing is a two-axis move and that the head by definition must move with it. Comparing it to other athletic moves makes such good sense. You always present the “whys” of your swing principles. The mini-helicopter turn proves it to us.

    If I could only have discovered your teachings 50 years ago….

    Thanks
    Mike

  4. Paul,

    In the move head videos it clearly moves back on the backswing. Does it then stay there until after impact as you are driving your legs?

    I can see where one might hit some fat shots while learning this move.

    Thanks
    Mike
