    Greetings Coach For years i was using the two piece takeaway and did not notice it /i am now on the same page with you in the one piece takeaway/now to pitching/i just watched the hinge and turn video / i think i know/the arms are powerless and the hinge comes / the butt of the club pointed at ground / not from hands making the hinge but momentum /yes no.

      With pitching you are purposely hinging it to the correct backswing position. So you will feel your arms when you do this. If you don’t hinge it you will not be able to generate the necessary power with a short backswing.

    So if I understand you at the three-quarter position, your hands are not fully cocked and then at the top they are and this is to keep the powerless arms so you can get more distance. My question is if you fully cock your arms to 90° and carry him to the top are you saying you will not be able to keep your arms powerless and therefore will lose distance?either way I like your series on what to feel no other instructors do this good job

      You are correct. I want the club hinging due to loose wrists and momentum of the club swinging back not because you are purposely hinging it.

      To hinge your wrists to 90 degrees would require you to purposely hinge it therefore activating your arms. If want them turned off. So doing it my way would keep them off by the time you hit the top.

    This tip is too long Paul like them under 7 minutes

      I am not changing what I do. I say what I need to say then I re-cap. Most tips are in the 7 min. range. I think 10 mins. is a small price to pay to play great golf.

    • The length OF the video is what make’s Paul’s teaching So much différent and educating from other golf sites such as REVOLUTION GOLF ,where the démonstrator skips briskly through the move ,and you don’t have the Time to grasp what’s going on .
      Keep doing ” long ” vidéos ,PAUL.

        Exactly. If I feel you need to hear it I will say it no matter how long it takes.

    Paul. great tip. I am adding to my favorites list so I can easily access it before my next swing practice session in my den and the yard. I have about 2 acres to practice on and many of the swings can be reinforced by finally hitting a ball and seeing the results.
    Thanks and cheers!

      Very good. Make sure you are not just hitting balls when you practice. I want you doing more practice swings working on perfect positioning versus hitting balls while you are trying to make changes. I think you get it.

  5. Hi Paul;
    As for the comment about tip length, the detail given in the tip makes it easier to understand. I’ve been purposely hinging my wrists rather than letting it happen naturally. I’m apparently allowing too much lower body movement too early in the swing but I’m definitely feeling the coil on my forward side. As long as you get there, does it really matter how it happens?

      As long as you get what there? You didn’t really let me know what you are referring to. If you are talking hinge I don’t want your arm muscle to activate. If you do it manually you will have done so with your arms. Once activated it will be harder if not impossible to turn them off.

      If this is an area of your swing you need to work on then keep working on it until you are hinging them fully. This really shouldn’t take more than 2 weeks. Once they are consistently hinging at the top then stop thinking about it. If you do, they will go up there on their own while keep them turned off.

  6. Great lesson ,Paul ,but we are not Yet done !I look forward IN earnest to the NeXT one ,which I fiind more critical where you’ve not Yet reached the top OF the swing ,but when your right upper forearm is at right Angles to the ground ( How far is your elbow at That moment from your body ?).Good golf teachers such as you say your swing should have the least moving parts ,like ” IRON BYRON “.Easy to say ,difficult to do ! Regarding Weight transfer ,I feel better balanced when keeping m’y Weight on the two legs ,Èvenly balanced ( Probably it’s untrue ,m’y weight has MOVED to the back leg ,but I don’t ” feel “it ).
    But the REAL ” catch ” is IN the NeXT two positions ,which are critical to a good swing !

      They will be posted shortly. I don’t really talk that much about the right arm in the backswing. The left arm is what I am more concerned about because Iron Byron doesn’t have a right arm in the backswing.

      • Paul ,Please Touch on the right forearm IN your video lesson :this is where I get bothered ,I never push it High enough to make m’y backswing steeper .When I do ,m’y swing is So much better !

  7. This has to do with were the ball is placed with irons and woods, does anyone make a chart ? Need help
