  1. Great tip! I am a better golfer and found myself restricting lower body turn so much that left knee was no longer behind the ball. When you let that knee get pulled by the coil of the body (upper body), THEN you produce huge torque and “hit” the ball effortlessly long. The weight moves deeper into that right heel and you can lift your left leg off the ground at the top of your backswing. Locked and loaded to fire away with lower body! Wonderful teaching. A joy to see Paul is teaching sound mechanics better than 99.9% of the teachers out there.

      John,

      Thanks. Glad you liked it.

      Restricting the lower body is important but I know some people overdo it. You have to keep the lower body still yet this knee needs to go behidn the ball. I think you see that. Without this, you don’t get the coil. Glad you caught it.

      Thanks for the kind words.

    Should the heel of the left foot come off the ground in this tip?

      Greg,

      If you are super-tight and cannot fully turn fully, I don’t mind it coming off the ground a little. Just remember the ratio between the shoulders, hips, knees and feet. If you lift too much and rotate the knees to 45 the hips will go to 60. You would need 120 degrees of shoulder turn to get the torque which is rare if anyone can do that. So be careful with how much you lift it if you are going to lift it.

    Another great tip. What shoes do you wear?

      Bruce,

      Thanks. Right now I am wearing FootJoys. I have worn Ecco in the past but they stop making the ones I like.

  4. Fine and basic instruction, Paul.
    Several Pro’s I see on the tour events are very much flexed at the knees when at address,while you recommend an upright position.They must be quite restricted in moving their left knee back as you show .

      Raymond,

      I just like the legs activate until you can feel them so they are ready to go. Too much and you might stand up through impact plus it’s just not necessary.
