  1. HI, I’m working hard and I’ve taken about 5 strokes off my game in the past 3 months following Swing Machine Golf – my best round is 91 and I threw away 3 strokes!!!

    I struggle with my driver – I had a bad slice which I have mostly overcome by following your advice – turn my hands over early and loosen my grip. When I relax and swing well I get 220 – 240 yards straight. But – I have a high trajectory – I’m not sure this is a problem as along as the ball gets out there but other players have pointed it out to me. Should I worry about it or try to cure it.

    I appreciate all you are doing,

    • Allan,

      That’s great news. Just keep taking it one step at at time. If you lose it slow down. People start getting excited so they start hitting hard with the arms. Keep them turned off and use the lower body to hit the ball.

      I have 2 tips on lowering the ball flight. Make sure you watch them.

      Also, make sure you are constantly rolling those wrists over both in practice swings and at the range. You need to do this until it is easy to hook it at will. Then you forget this roll over and focus on the lower body starting the downswing to straighten it out. Take it step by step and you will fix it for good.

    Hello Paul,

    First let me express my gratitude for your well explained tips.
    I discovered Ignitiongolf after having read Michael McTeigue’s Effortless golfswing, searching to get rid of my hit impuls.
    Now my swing is much more relaxed and I finish in balance.

    However with the driver, the swingthoughts relaxed arms and knee to knee are not enough for me.
    I have some success with a tilted stance, but I feel I have to exagerate this tilt on my back foot to flatten my swingplane.

    A tip on driver setup and stance would be super ….

    Many thanks !

    Hi Paul,

    It would be helpful if you could comment on what skill set is needed for using a Driver that has a “stiff” shaft instead of a “regular” shaft. What are the pros or cons?
