    Hi Paul
    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?

    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!

    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.

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

    Thanks Paul appreciate the advice. Zam

  6. Hi Paul,
    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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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

    Paul– I have been more consistent thinking that my arms are a very very short piece of string and the Mass (the rock) is really long and includes all of club shaft and club head. My hand twirling the rock, aka “hip turn and post up” the motor.
