You gave me a tip the other day because I was what I thought coming out of the shot https://ignitiongolf.com/follow-through-eyes-tilted.
However, in this tip you mention that I would be topping the ball. In fact I am hitting it fat creating a large divot and the ball is going high right. Is the same tip going to resolve this problem or is it all one of the same?
You have too much weight on the back foot at impact.
Here you go:

In this video of Sergio Garcia does his hands seem to drop quickly because he is squatting a bit in the downswing? I heard most consider Sergio swing somewhat unorthodox but I still like it. Also, look at angle he gets at the top. It is like 75 degrees! I know 90 degrees is easy to get because that is natural were your hand wants to be. Maybe there is a drill or exercise to help me work on it. Thanks!
FO (slow motion)
The wrist angle is compressing because his wrist allows this to occur and the fact he is starting his body rotation instead of just pulling the club down. The squat is not a squat it is just his legs turning to face the camera again.

I’ve been recently having some problems with the position of my shoulders and arms during the downswing.
for some reason, when i start the down swing with my hips, my upper body is turning, but my arms are lagging way behind.
and so, during impact, my body is already facing fourty-five degrees towards the target, while my hip is further ahead.
To counteract this, i unconsciously started to pull my swing down during the beginning of the backswing, my make sure it catches up with the rest of the upper body.
at first i thought this might be a connection problem, but my armpit feels tight…
it also goes along with a problem i had before, when my hips would almost face the target during the moment of impact
have i taken the lower and upper body seperation problem way too far?
any help would be great.

Yes, you are firing the lower body too hard. Did you not see this tip:

Great drill Paul. Should I apply this to all of my golf shots including pitching and chipping? Thanks very much.

Pitching – I need to you hinge the club right away to the different backswing lengths but yes you are keeping the powerless in the downswing.
Chipping – this is like putting. The stroke is short so you cannot let them just fall down. You need to be using your putting stroke. I have tips on these topics in the red navigation bar.

This is a great tip, especially for me to use when i am on the course. This will get my mind right about what i have to do to get good results. Usually my drive is ok with respect to powerless arms, but it is the fairway shot where i want to kill it. i will add this to my pre-shot setup routine to remind myself.
I will do a tip on this next time out. You have to do the taller setup with irons. Then coil and uncoil with more level shoulders. Too many people are too bent over and try to hit down with irons. You do not have to do this. Hitting down occurs with the right fundamentals. If you know this you will stop trying to hit hard and hit down.

I’m having problems with the downswing. Do you start to turn the legs then bring the arms down or other way round or is it together. Thanks.
You are not bringing anything down. Your arms are connected to your body. You uncoil which would move your body. Your arms are connected to your body so they would follow. This is just a drill to get you to stop trying to hit with the arms.
So yes, you would coil up your body and hinge your wrists at the top. At this very moment you would be thinking of uncoiling the lower body NOT thinking of hitting anything.

On another video you said the hand grip should be 8 out of 10 when hinged on the backswing. What pressure grip should there be as the club is coming down and through impact, mine feels a bit loose, maybe a 3 or 4 out of 10. Thanks
April 13, 2017
Once you reach 8 out of 10 it is at this level throughout the down and through swing but your wrists are loose. You don’t want to be letting go of the club.
