Paul, you have not discussed a descending blow into impact, particularly with the short clubs, making a divot ahead of where the ball was and creating a lot of backspin. Should we be hitting the ball just before the lowest point in the swing? It seems that we must keep our upper body forward toward the target to have a descending blow at impact, but this seems to conflict with your idea of the body back, away from the target at impact. Can you explain?

That’s because I have a ton of tips on this subject. I may do more in the future.

I had my best Game ever with your great tips. Please explain in further detail in your comment to one reply you made last time on leaving the head behind the ball, but feeling like you are swinging up to it. Not sure I understand what exactly you were saying and how to do it. I feel this is so key to my swing and I don’t want to get it wrong. Thanks for your service!
Glad you are improving. I love hearing it.

Our bunkers have about 3 inches of sand and are very hard to get out of. What is the best way? I thoroughly enjoy your lessons.
Glad you like the lessons. I appreciate it.

Thanks for the aha moment. Seeing you turn everything at the same time made me realize I do just that. Can’t wait to work on the proper spring ratio. Makes a ton of sense.

This is a huge part of the swing. Shouldn’t take long to get it. Once you do you will feel the coil.

Hi Paul. When starting your rotation of the shoulders should you attempt to restrict rotation of the hips and knees for as long as possible. That is, should you attempt to rotate the shoulders 90 degrees without any rotation of the hips. Physically, I understand this is impossible to accomplish but I suspect attempting to do it would automatically create the maximum torque.

Yes, that is exactly what you want and should be doing. Your shoulders pull the hips. The hips pull the knees into position.\

I can’t help but think that my lesson with you on Monday morning triggered this tip, as getting a good upper body coil was one of several issues I need to work on. The tip will definitely help reinforce proper coiling in the backswing. Also, I really enjoyed my lesson with you! Well worth it and I’m excited to start improving my swing mechanics.
Glad you liked the lesson. You did well. Got some work to do but you can do it. Coil/uncoil.
A Great tip. Understanding the concept ALWAYS makes it easier for me to “get it”. Many Thanks.
Glad you like it. I appreciate it. Understanding is half the battle.
