  1. Hi Paul

    I learned from your tip about spin.

    Correct me if I am wrong but the ideal swing is lead with the body on down swing then roll your back hand over at impact..

    • Michael,

      The idea is to lead with rotation of the lower body and powerless arms which (when trained to do so) roll the back hand over after the release point (approx 2 feet after impact with irons 3 feet with woods).

      If you manually roll the wrists the ball should be hooking. This may have to be done to train them to roll over. Once hooking the ball is straightened out with the body start first in the downswing.

    Hi Paul Hitting ball well . occasionally hit this big push slice, out of bounds type, can feel i have done something completely differently with hands and arms(feels like i am hitting ball with wide open clubface) but not sure what i did to get to impact with clubface like that,any idea what i might be doing with hands and arms on these shots.

      Glad you are hitting it well.

      The big push slice is you coming out of it looking for this amazing shot you think you are going to hit. I know this because you have played well for your last few rounds. In doing so, you think you are invincible and you go all out. This causes you to look a little early and you lose it right. Every great player in the world hits this shot from time to time. Just watch pro tourney’s and see what side of the fairway they hit it on the last few holes.

      So right now you are at a critical stage. If I were you I would actually slow down a little. Never swing over 80%. I know this is not going to make you a hero but what it will do is allow you to consistently shoot these lower numbers. This will make you confident. Confidence breeds distance. So more great rounds will allow you to swing harder the in the future without losing it. You’ll see.

    Hello Paul, first of all i wanna thank you for all the good work you’re doing. I found you on youtube and after watching a few videos it changed my golf life by a lot. Since I saw your free videos 3 weeks ago I was able to hit low 90s consistently when before i would hit mid 90s and even more than 100.
    I am having lots of trouble with the driver, I am hitting slices but my balls start straight and in the las 30 yards it starts to slice. They’re not huge slices but why does it happen? My wrists are too tight?
    Thanks again !!

    In downswing….Should your arms stay(connected) in front of your chest until release of the club through impact??

    • John,

      Yes, you should have connection the downswing. Very rare when someone doesn’t. If you know for a fact you are disconnecting then slow down and feel this connection. If you don’t know for a fact then don’t worry about it. I highly doubt you are disconnecting. This typically occurs when the person is driving the lower body way to fast in the downswing or they are so out of position and disconnected at the top it carries over into the downswing.

      Here is what to do if you are driving the legs too hard:
