when i swing trying to use powerless arms,getting strong push type fade,doing the rollover wrist drill , reduces fade to minimal, do i need to reduce my lowerbody move or just do more wrist drills and keep same lower body speed.(whats causes my wrist to tighten up), been working on your technique for 2 1/2 months seen drastic improvements in my game.love the powerless arm philosophy.thanks.

If you are working on starting with the lower body and hitting pushes and push fades you are either:
1. Driving the lower body way too hard
If this is the case slow down
2. Disconnecting under the left armpit
If this is the case watch this video: https://ignitiongolf.com/drill-head-cover-armpit
3. You are sliding laterally

I would suggest rolling the wrists to get the ball hooking consistently left. This will be done by manually rolling the wrists way earlier than you have been. You can work on this here:

Once you get it hooking you go back to firing the lower body as you have been. This will straighten it out and keep the connection.

I’ve done all the tips you’ve showed in order to get rid of my gentle push fade. I am turning my lower body to the slowest, I am able to hook the balls and no I am not sliding laterally and also I have tried the head cover drill. I think I have pretty much mastered all of these. Don’t get me wrong, if I see my ball push fades, i will roll over my wrist early at least 20 times, then get my lower body going to straighten it. It works for the next 2 shots, then the problem starts all over again on my 3rd shot onwards. Correct me if I am wrong but I think I have got the most stubborn and tightest wrist? Could it be that once I fire my lower body my hands cannot catch up with the lower body hence causing the clubface to be open at impact? If this is the case would you recommend me to speed up my hands a little on the downswing? Thanks a lot.
Herman, you have to be constantly working on this roll over until you do it all the time. I am not thinking of doing it because I did it thousands and thousands of times. Now my club releases without thinking about it.
The only way the ball can go right is if the face is open. If you end hit one shot this way start rolling it. If you hit another shot right go back to purposely hooking it. Yes, this is going to get you in just as much trouble but the advantage is you are squaring the face. Slicing never has you squaring the face so you will never get it.
If you are pushing/push fading it you are driving the lower body too hard. You are not good enough to do it that hard yet. Do the roll over and just get the lower body starting first. Your goal is to hit straight shots not to hit it long and straight (just yet). Once you can hit numerous fairways you and you are more confident then increase the rotational speed of the body a little.

Great comprehensive tip. Being in the northeast I have been working on your technique this winter mostly in my den with rare trips to the range. On the range my misses are mostly straight pulls (10-25 yards left of target line) with about 10-15% of my misses being pushes/push fades. I have trouble feeling the swing going to “right field” without actually hitting the ball to the right.
Overall I am enthused with your approach & hope to visit your school at some point in the not so distant future.
