Great video, Paul! I am a senior golfer kept off the course recently by Mother Nature. Played yesterday for the first time in a while and focused on the hip drill you posted a few lessons back (kind of a micro version of this video). No practice prior to play but got better results on the back nine as the move began to internalize. Bonus outcome: Focusing just on this move constitutes focussing on 1 swing thought. Of course, you teach that as well. So, this lesson is a twofer 🙂
GREAT video, thank you. I have an unrelated question, I have not been able to play for a few months and I went up to practice short chips and pitches. I began shanking pitches and chips hitting them off the hozel (sp?) straight right. I do not know why. I would appreciate any help. Thank you!!
Your hands are in line with the hosel so think of keeping tour hands and the hosel inside of the golf ball. The golf head is an extension of the shaft.
I like this, and the main reason is that I have discovered that I can touch the legs without turning much. I think I want the legs touching as a result of the hips turning. This tip will reinforce the thought of turning the hips.

Glad you liked it. Thanks. Yes, turn and have the legs touch. This is the power source in the swing. You need the body moving to get the arms moving.
This comment is a follow up to my comments about rotating around the big toe on the right foot. In watching this gentleman, I notice that his right foot actually comes off the ground a little as he is pivoting off that toe. What’s your thoughts on this move as a way of helping the hips rotate and getting the legs to touch in the finished position. Thanks
I don’t like it and you shouldn’t do it. I would just narrow the stance or make sure you are rolling onto the tip of this toe.

Paul, great video with a practical pre shot routine. My question regards the lag that is presen in and around 3:42 thru :45. Is this the amount I should experience or is he letting the lag go early?
I wasn’t even looking at it but now I’ve seen it he is loosing it little lag early. Keep in mind he has a strong grip. He has to tighten to not hook it way left. In this tightening there is hitting which looses the lag. Need the neutral grip and loose wrists. So I would be working on that. The lag angle would release just due to physics and the mass wanting to get to its widest point.
I do a similar move but not on the tee box I usually defer from hitting first and use that time to rehearse my hip turn. I really like what he’s doing though and I’m going to try and do this too.
Very good. Glad you liked it. I thought it was a great way for everyone to get used to the hips.

A Great tip which I took to the range today and hit straight drive after straight drive. I will definitely incorporate this is into my pre shot routine. Balmy weather down here on the Gold Coast in OZ. Keep up the great work, it’s much appreciated.

Glad you tried it and saw results. Just make it a habit.
Hey Paul, am I right in thinking that if you do this move the split second that the hips go before the shoulders causes the coil or spring to tighten even more . Just like when you turn the top of the head cover to the right and the bottom to the left creates more tightness and a powerful unwind. And isn’t this the number one power source in the swing. Am I on the right track? Thanks Brad
You probably are not going to be able to go 2 directions at once. This is typically seen in long drivers swings. You need the thought on doing this though just as you start down so the body gets ahead of the club. If you can move in 2 directions at once that’s great but I wouldn’t get hung up on it. Just stay focused on firing the hips first once you hit the top.

This video helped to put things together regarding hip turn, downswing, straight arms beyond contact and follow through.
That’s great. As soon as I saw his video I knew it would help a lot of people. Keep doing it as part of your routine.

Love the video. Very helpful. Agree he has a great follow thru. I have been practicing this with the Hip Start. it takes a lot of effort to get the Hip Start moving. It seems to require a very aggressive turn. is this what we should be feeling for our regular golf swing. The hip start gives me the feeling that I am not moving my hips fast enough or aggressively for my normal swing.

Yes, this would be a great one for you. Then you are thinking about it and rehearsing it before every swing. Keep doing it.
Yes, it is way more effort that you think. Do these 2 drills nightly thousands of times:
Up In The Air Drills – Speed: https://ignitiongolf.com/air-drills-speed/
Up In The Air Drills – Separation: https://ignitiongolf.com/air-drills-separation/
I guess my question is Have I been too lazy with my hip turn.
Yes, you have been. This takes serious effort although it doesn’t look like it.
