Hi Paul, I have a question for you. I’m a right side golf player. Since I have learned your golf swing method, I have improved my game and lower my hdcp from 22 to 12. I’m very happy and I thank to make me discover the loose feeling in my swing. But, I still have a problem with my alignment especially when I’m on the left side of the fairway. I have a tendency to hook the ball left to the green or if I try to aim more at the right side of green, I push the ball or dock hook. How can I correct this ?

I have a bunch of tips on alignment. Start to get in the habit of checking it when you play and use an alignment stick every time you practice:

When you pull hook it you should instantly know that you are using your arms. You should know how to fix this.

It’s my understanding that Sam Snead and Moe Norman were considered “pull hitters”, having their alignment to the right of the target. Does that mean that they had a swing flaw, or could it be that it was just their natural swing and it was right for them?

I didn’t know about Snead but Moe Certainly pulled every shot. I know this for a fact because I watched him do it many times as he did clinics.
This may have been natural. Back then they thought it was okay to do this. You can see more old timers doing this back then. I think we understand more about the swing now. I would stick with parallel left. Then you can see if you have flaws and fix them.

I love all of your videos, fantastic! I’m also planning on attending one of your golf schools this winter or spring.
My question is after you changed your body alignment in the video above – you didn’t change your club head alignment. so does that mean that you still aim your club head at the same intermediate target that you had it aimed at to begin with (before you changed your body alignment after you realized it was wrong)? so in other words, your body and your club head/intermediate target are not necessarily parallel?

Glad you like the tips. Definitely let me know if you can make it out. I love meeting members of IG and of course people who are working on my technique.
That was a demonstration as to what people normally do. They are usually okay with the face but the body is way off. So as I squared up I got everything lined up.
So yes, clubface is at the intermediate target. Body is parallel to the target line. I have a bunch more alignment tips on the site. Just search alignment and they will all come up.
