    Ha! I took a selfie video at the range a couple of days ago and saw that on a few swings I messed up were included some of that winging which I could feel was related to arm muscle use. Thanks for the practice tip, Paul, I’ll do it until I’m sure I don’t “wing it” any more. (And I promised myself I would never again put myself through the painfully embarrassing experience of watching my own swing lol!)

      Almost everyone does the chicken wing. Not good. This should be priority 1 for most golfers. Just do easy swing and stretch it out. Get used to the new feelings then for more power it is more legs and hips not hitting harder. You can do it.

  2. Paul,

    Great tip. Not sure if you remember but a few days ago I asked about my problem of finishing with the club pointing about 20 degrees downward vs. truly parallel to my ears. I immediately saw some similarity with this tip and went back and reviewed my swing videos again.

    Although I am not a chicken winger, it appears that my right elbow stays separated too far away from my perpendicular left elbow at the finish. When I pull my right elbow in closer to the left elbow at the finish the club straightens up into a nice parallel-to-the-ears position.

    Amazing the integration and congruence in your teachings. Fixing one thing usually also fixes another.

    Thanks and keep them coming!

      I remember it. Glad you see it and are fixing it. This is vital but few people care or work on it.
