    Totally understand the couple of issues you mention in the tip. One question I have (since I have been really working on the tilt thing a lot lately, so good timing for this advice…) is about topping, especially fairway woods off the deck. Is that more of a sign of ‘not powerless arms’ (was during rounds this would happen vs on the range, so more pressure there) vs just hanging back too much? I’m inclined to think I was pulling in my arms a little vs getting the tilt incorrect as I’ve been otherwise only having the issues you mentioned in the tip today.


  2. Good tip Paul.
    Quick one, struggling a bit to combine the “pressure under the armpit” and “powerless arms”. Can you please clarify?

    Thanks for everything, your tips are amazing:)

    Hi Paul been working on body tilt ,rolling wrists, swinging 60 percent the last 2 months ,really improved my game still get occasional misses as you say above but realize why it happens ,question i have is now draw 90 percent of my shots but my ball flight has drastically lowered especially with my driver,happy with distance but would like higher ball flight ,is changing loft on driver only way to change ball flight,ball is teed up normal driver tee height.

    • Barry,

      If you are hooking that many shots you should reduce the roll over and start thinking of body rotation. The closing face is delofting the club. As you add more body you will not roll it over as much thus creating a higher ball flight. Also watch:

  4. Hi Paul. Coming over the top in my first years as a golfer and moving my head forward in the downswing I tend to og back to my old swing. Keeping my head behind it tends to get my to push as I’m over doing it. Would this be a good swing thought for me when playing? Get my nose over my back instep and the turn/touch legs while keeping my nose over my instep? I guess I’m sliding too much when pushing the ball so turning while staying back should fix it?

      Just watch the back of the ball as yo hit the ball. This is how I got it many years ago and it’s simple. You do this for a while (yes you may hit pushes). Once you know for a fact you are staying behind it then stop thinking about it. Just see the whole ball as you look down at it.

      I used to think about moving my head over my right foot then keeping it there as I hit the ball. Yes, this works too. Thinking about this stuff on the course is tough because you are thinking mechanics so you have to be prepared for bad shots but you will also hit amazing shots too. These are the ones you need to be aware of because they are telling you that you are starting to get the change. If you keep pushing most balls then just turn more getting to the touch the legs position. Turning stops you from hanging back to much and allows the club to swing slightly from the inside instead of way too much from the inside.
