    Wow, Paul, another thing to work on. Sometimes my foot actually leaves the ground and It spins to the left. The next time I go to the range, I’ll use the stake idea.

    Thanks again, Ron

    Hi Paul,
    Thanks for pointing me to this tip, it is one I had not seen because I have only been a member a little over 2 years and this is an older one. It is a good one to help with the pieces of the puzzle. I am finding by thinking of the inside of the front foot as I come through it is helping prevent me from sliding which is something I struggle with.
    Thanks for all the great tips,

      This is vital in the good golf swing. You keep that foot straight and you will not do the touch the legs position.

      Glad you like the tips and are a long time member. I truly appreciate it.

    Another great tip that I only found because you had linked it from another tip. The Q&A after each tip really makes Ignition Golf valuable.

    I noticed on my swing videos that I roll to the inside of the left foot on the backswing then just prior to the downswing turn it to a more flared, open position. As an old baseball player, I wonder if this tendency is from “striding” into the pitch and I am subconsciously carrying this into my golf swing. And perhaps in those video swings I am trying to swing too hard.

    My best on-course thought is swing easy (50%). It surprises me how effortless it can be and gives me an almost Zen-like satisfaction. And the ball really rockets off the club face.

    I’ve played for 55 years and always followed a natural instinct to just “hit” the ball – like hitting a rock with a stick. I was a solid 8 handicap in my youth due to a good short game. But I didn’t have a system and every swing felt like a new adventure. Now, with Paul Wilson golf, I have a sound swing method with processes that I can self-troubleshoot and fall back on. If I had this info then, I know I could have play Division I college golf like my HS teammates. I’m just so grateful that I found you now and in retirement have an excellence quest that fulfills my need to achieve and be successful. Golf is fun again! Thanks Paul!

      Glad you liked it. I wish I could have gotten answers to my questions years ago.

      I do this a little too. It is just not enough weight on it. If you don’t have enough weight on it it can twist. More weight on it and it can’t. If it is a little it won’t hurt you. Too much twist is not good.

      I have a tip on it here:

      Stop Twisting Front Foot:

      Yes, if only we could turn back the clock. I was around back then teaching what I teach today. With the internet now people can find me easier. Stay focused and you will be lower than an 8 for years to come. As you can see you don’t need to be strong to be loose.
