    Great tip, as usual Paul….Just one question: When I turn, I’m able to turn 90 degrees at the top and my club does go over the line just a bit…But it looks to me that when u go to the top of your swing, it looks like you’re actually lifting your arms a little bit at the very end…Am I seeing that correctly? I’m trying to not move my arms independently of my shoulder turn, and yet it does seem that you’re lifting your arms just a bit, to get to your top of the swing position….Is this correct??? Thanking u in advance, RAND…

    • When you rotate into the backswing, the arms should go up slightly at the end. I would like to see the lead arm (my left arm) be slightly above the shoulder plane. This would allow for more distance also. If your swing is getting a little long, then try to shorten it; driver would be parallel to the ground and everything slightly shorter than that.
