    Thats just a different feeling…went to the range practing touch knees.. swing speed 50 % almost the whole bucket i hit pushes about 50 yards around the same spot. Therefore being new at fix the swing I realize I was still using my arms and sliding then I would touch my knees. Two shots I hit duck hooks and a few I got straight with a little draw

    Paul –

    Good drill. I’ve worked on powering my shot with lower body for five years. What finally did it for me was remembering how you showed how to rotate lower body with legs and hips using trigger with nothing in our hands. I did this, then added just my left arm going into a backswing position with my hand closed into a light fist so I could easily feel the arm being dragged down when I rotated lower body with legs. Then I added a wedge to my left hand, put the right hand on it very lightly, and did the same move. Presto, I powered my swing with my lower body and dragged the club down with my left arm. This might be a helpful idea for other people.

      Thanks Dale my swing is all about my arms I starting playing at 24 and about 5 years quit because of frustration now at 55 starting back I had a left knee replacement last year I think that was keeping me from using my body, now my knee is stronger, straight and doing the drills especially pushing my left leg back and putting 90 % weight on it on the follow thur is the different feeling I comment about

      Good idea, anyway that gets your lower body to start moving into the downswing would be great. Any lower body is better than zero lower body.

  3. Paul, I have a question not relating to this lesson. What is your advise when you totally loose your golf swing, when everything goes wrong? I’ve broken 80 five times this year. Yesterday I shot 50 on the front 9 and quit. I had two triple bogeys and two double bogies. Driver, irons, chips all failed and I don’t know why. My metal state was good and I didn’t get upset. I just couldn’t adjust. Any suggestions on how to bounce back?

      Start with this short series I made for golfers coming out of the lockdown earlier this year. There are 4 in this series for you to watch. Obviously once you get to a certain point then all of the game will go from being in such a negative mental state. This would be a great place for you to start;

  4. Thanks Paul. Played today and shot 43, 40. I watched several of your videos and realized I was getting my lower body way ahead of my upper body starting the downswing. My hips had turned almost to the target when I hit the ball. It threw me way off. Today I focused on my hips at 45 degrees when I hit the all and it worked! Had 3 double bogies and still shot 83. Thanks again!

      Some people do over-exaggerate the hips into the downswing. Not a bad problem to have but you can definitely over-do some drills too much.
