I watch some of the older good players at my club and they seem to stay down on the ball alot longer than the modern player, before looking up.
Surely this is bad for your back and other parts of the body?
This doesn’t really hurt your back. You are watching where the ball is/was until the right arm is parallel to the ground on the way through. After that you are coming out of it a little so you are only on a slight tilt as opposed to a severe tilt. So you are only on this angle for about a half a second. This is why you are raising up a little into the follow through. I don’t think you’re going to have a problem with it. If you get a back back from playing golf it will be from a reverse pivot or sliding not holding the spine angle.

I am getting some great strikes now and because I have 3 practice swings whilst practicing before I hit the ball this works a treat.
Your 3 practice swing, is that for muscle memory?
February 6, 2013
I want you to do 3 practice swings so you are doing a 3:1 ratio. If you do something one way 3 times and the other way once you will make the change fast. Make sure you are doing 3 perfect practice swings though working on something and checking it.

I like that too Paul. I am going to take 3 practice swings first making sure my wrists are loose and my hips start the motion. I am finding it hard to stay consistent now. Some good days…….Some bad days. This might help. I cant always feel that elbow to hip connection I was feeling before. Its not easy to find that feeling of how these two body parts work together. Any ideas.
This will definitely help. Not one tour player does a position other than this in their swing. If they are all doing it, you need to do it.
The elbow will come down to the hip with powerless arms and starting the lower body first. You are not doing this that is why you are not feeling it.

IT’S JUST AS WELL I RENEWED MY IGNITION GOLF MEMBERSHIP.

i knew i had a problem with coming out of the swing early. i seem to be looking at the ball during its full flight, and have been trying to fix it.
my question though, is that does this coming out of the swing early also cause slices? i ask so because with me, i don’t usually hit thin shots, but what will happen is, particularly with my driver (not my irons) i will hit incredibly slices.
a few practices ago though, i really tried to keep my spine angle together, and for some reason the slices went away.
i have watched your video on cure the driver slices,
so i’ve been wondering. were my driver slices cured that particular day because i somehow managed to flip my wrists correctly?
or have i always been flipping my wrists correctly, but because i kept coming out of the shots early, slices kept happening?
thanks for all the great videos. it’s already getting chilly here in Korea. hope Vegas is allright.

Yes, this can cause push slices because coming out of it stops the wrists from releasing. So holding the angle will stop this. This is not to say you cannot slice it while holding the angle too. If you ever see it with slice spin then immediately go to the roll over drill with the wrists. Just get rid of the slice spin at any cost even if you have to hook it. Once you get rid of it switch the focus to the body to straighten it out. It shouldn’t take you too long to maintain the angle.

i think one of my many problems is my right arm. i try not to put any power into it, but is the elbow tucked or just flapping in the breeze?
August 4, 2014
Your elbow should not be flapping in the breeze it should be tucking against your side due to physics of the axis turning mass.

Thanks so much for answering. You have so much excellent information it is hard to know where to start. These will help as do all of your videos. i am getting so close to doing things right i can almost taste it.

Glad you like the tips. I appreciate it.
Start with grip, setup and follow through first. This is how I have taught since my very first lesson.

I raise up in my downswing despite maintaining tilt. I have difficulty getting my butt to stay behind my heels and my chest rises vertically.
Following your methodology has greatly helped my ball striking but my early extension flaw persists.
Any further advise would be appreciated.
Thank you for your help.

People who are raising are hitting or they are too low to begin with. Check your set up and make sure you are taller when you set up. If you are already taller you will not raise up. Too low and of course you are going to stand up.
I would also think you are swinging way to hard. I am turning not hitting. In doing so, I maintain the spine angle.

i read a comment from someone on one of your tips and he said he liked your tip of feeling the left knee and left arm were in synch. Those were not the exact words, but was wondering to what tip he was referring. i have been playing around with that idea in my mind and it seems to help, but i want to hear it from you so that i am doing it right. Can you point me to it?
Here is his post:
Here is a swing thought that helped me “feel” powerless arms on the downswing: At the top of the backswing, I consciously try to keep my left humerus (I’m right handed) against my chest when I initiate my downswing. So, at the top, I’m thinking “Keep left arm against chest, straighten left leg (my downswing trigger)”. It’s amazing. My hips and left shoulder just drag my left arm around as I uncoil. By the time it gets to the ball my right arm is almost fully extended and the club face is squared.
It was to this tip:
Arms or Body Starting Down: https://ignitiongolf.com/arms-or-body-starting-down/
Just realize if you move your body your arms will move. You can move your arms without your body but not the other way around.
