      Thanks for the feedback. I think it is really important and no one is talking about it.

    I agreed with the above, this has been a real eye-opener for myself. Now I can feel the different moves as i practice my swing slowly thru each position…..Thanks Paul, for all your effort in this series.

      I like the enthusiasm. Just keep at it. Practice swings and more practice swings looking for the feedback of each position.

    Hi Paul,

    Lately I have noticed that you are making a new move in your pre shot rutine. You are moving your left arm a little forward before you actually take your grip.
    Is that to loosen up?

    And thanks for a fantastic explanation of the golfswing and how it should feel.

      Yes, I have felt that too. I don’t play much so I am just trying to make sure my arms are loose.

    Jack said he felt like he was throwing the club at the ball. I do make better & effortless shots when I do this swing but I do lose some distance with driver & fairway metals. Irons are great.

    Thanks Paul,
    I really enjoyed the series.

    When you talk about healing mass is it counterproductive to have the fiber shafts versus the steel shafts on the iron? Sounds like it would make sense to have the weight in your club so you could feel the mass much more easily

      Steel is for feel. Most average players want distance so they go for graphite. It does make them feel kind of light though. If so, people need to loosen up and make them feel heavy. Not much I can do about it. I am going up against big equipment companies that was to sell more stuff. If I can make people better maybe they will switch to steel. Every see pros using graphite in their irons? They don’t need distance though they want the feel.

    Hi Paul;
    Some say that your tips are too long while I say they’re excellent. 1 tip like that would cost me $40. I just got a great one from you for $5. It’s not that the money is really important, it’s the quality of the lesson. For me, the club feeling heavy is my key to knowing my arms are off which is what I work on most. Our golf season is over here, except for the occasional day but I’ve already started working on next season’s swing. Of all the lessons you’ve done, this might be the best. Be well!

      I really don’t care what they say anymore. They are long for a reason. I repeat things so people hear what I am saying. And if people can’t devote 10 mins. to learning something about their swing maybe they shouldn’t be playing this game.

      I like that you are keying in on the heavy feeling of the club. This is HUGE. Keep feeling it. If so, your arms are stretching out which widens the arc.

      Winter is the best time to practice. I’m glad you see it. Why work on your swing in the summer when you want to play? Why not spend a few months creating a great swing now and play great golf when you can play. Makes sense to me. Hope others see it too.

    The feelings series is great. I will be working on these lessons over the winter months. Thanks for the great service that you provide.

  10. Paul, I really like your teaching technique and have been working on it for over a month now. I stuggle with hitting the ball with my arms, i typically pull or pull hook my shots. I have worjed recently on starting the backswing with my shoulders, and found that makes the club feel heavy in the backswing. That seems to be a good thing, based on this tip. But I still have problems starting the downswing with the arms. Today at the range, I concentrated on feeling my left shoulder turning inthe downswing, instead of the arms. Doing this prodced straight solid shots for the most part. For me, this seems to help me feel the powerless arms that you teach. Nothing else has worked well for me.

      Glad you have you on board. I appreciate the kind words.

      Everyone struggles with hitting with the arms. Human nature is powerful. It is telling you to hit the object in front of you and hit it hard. I go against this because I have trained myself to do so. This way not always what I did. No one in all my years of practicing and taking lessons every said to not hit the ball with my arms. If they had I don’t think I would be writing this.

      The pulls and pull hooks are the tell-tale sign you are hitting. Your arms and club are starting first in the downswing which means that mass is moving before the axis (body). In physics this will never work. To get a weigh to swing at 90 degrees to your hand you twirl your hand (your body in a golf swing) and let the weight do whatever it wants. See your swing like this. Your club is the weight. Your arms are string and your body is you hand twirling it. Why would this swing left if you twirled your hand. It wouldn’t. So keep the arms relaxed. Focus on swinging easier for a while until you get used to the looser, easier feeling. The speed up ONLY the lower body to make the club swing faster. If your body turns before your arms come down you will hit it dead straight.

      Forget the shoulders in the downswing. This it top of your spring. Coil the top and uncoil the bottom (your legs). If you do the top will uncoil 100% of the time perfectly on its own. If you are uncoiling our shoulders you are uncoiling the top of the spring which is unnecessary and you are still thinking about your upper body if you do this.

  11. Hi Paul,

    New subscriber. I’m a big “feels” person and not so technical so this series is great. Would you say that on your downswing your right palm would come in feeling like its facing the sky?

    With all the talk of delofting the club, wiping the table, turning knuckles down etc… I’ve gotten into a bad habit of twisting and turning hands all over.

    I found recently if my head stays behind the ball and I feel a right palm up, the clubs squares itself and I get pretty good contact. On to something or is this a fluke?
