      I have tons of tips on all aspects of the swing. Please go to GOLF TIPS in the red navigation bar on any page. Hove of it. The sub menu will drop down. Go to FULL SWING and the different areas of the swing are categorized. Just go to powerless arms.


      Also, red navigation bar to the right you can type in the search box anything you are looking for and all tips will come up on that topic.

    coach i am aming at the target and not wanting to go left of it.

  4. Paul,
    Just for once, I don’t quite understand your point. What is the feet-together-drill supposed to teach in the first place anyway? And if it is easier to hit with feet together why should one spread them apart at all??

    Everything you teach is just great, by the way!

      The closer your feet the closer you are to a single axis. The easier it is to square the face. You can certainly do this. Problem is that the faster you swing the more you will lose balance. So we spread the feet. When you do you now have 2 axis in your swing. This moves the release point ahead of the ball not right in front of you so it’s harder to consistently square the face.

      I explain this in the tip. You need to watch it again.

    Hi Paul
    I think I do most things well, but do have a reverse pivot tendency. In the shift to the back inside instep I know what I should feel but need a visual cue for my head. What should I be seeing at, or near the top of, the back swing – in terms of – do you see your left shoulder between the ball and the eyes, or a spot on the back of the ball, or is there some other visual cue where I can say “Yes”?

    Paul could you explain the helicopter drill in relation to the swing. With the helicopter drill you keep the shoulders level, but in looking at the swing here and on other videos the right should does drop and even more so when you are tilting in the down swing. please clarify
