    Great points, Paul! I also hit the ball much more solid when I take the arms and hands out of the swing. Thanks!

    Hi Paul,
    Thanks for this good tip. I’m left-handed but play right-handed and I haven’t been pushing up with my right foot until now. I’ll try it today.
    By the way 75 years of age is not at all old these days I’m turning 80 and I reckon I’ll be turning Pro within the next 15 years.

  3. Quick question: So you dig in to the ground first during the transition and THEN push off the right foot inset and turn? I tend to get on my toes during the transition, pelvis goes in (early extension) and my right shoulder dips to low, coming drastically inside/out.

    Thank you, your site is incredible!

      I turn my right knee in a little to ensure I move to the inside of my right foot in the backswing. Is this modification acceptable?

        Yes, this is fine. You just do not want to do it too much, or too much resistance as this will make your weight go to the outside of your foot more.

      You are pushing off of your instep/toe area. The digging in is to feel the ground underneath you to get that burst of speed. Start working on getting a better circular rotation with the lower body first. Check out this tip:

    As a better golfer with my laps around the sun approaching 60 and a few back surgeries, I had to rebuild my swing to be pain free. I can honestly say that this method has met the challenge and I can play *all I want* and I’ve not given up any distance I had when I was much younger…and I have much better control due to all the other great tips. 54 holes in a weekend, no problem. Thanks, Paul.

    In my 6th year with you, Paul More to come, just wish what I’m now learning at 78 – as many say – wish I’d known at 35-36 when I first picked up a golf club. Couple recent findings:
    2-3 years ago in your “coil” lessons I found that my “hip turn” in the coil was minimum 60° ! So, put in play your fix “keep your belt buckle on the ball” – yep, then shoulders brought my hips to 45 degrees. Perfect, except forgot/lost it few weeks later. Your recent “Power Leak” series awakened me again – wow, back to great room club elevated drill swings. Amazing, my “no torque 60° coil” was terrible and felt the same. At same time, I was not loaded up on back foot – very difficult to load I found when my hips were rotating 60° ! Did these two items help, out yesterday (no golf since 11/2022) where I forgot to employ above two fixes again until hole #11, par 5, 550 yds. Driver & 3 wood put me at 150 to center of green – haven’t done that in several years. Yep, correct club going in again using “45 and load”, great torque feeling, direction and distance “spot on”. Haven’t had par on that hole in who knows how long. So, only swing thought for remaining holes was “45 & Load! What a difference… Old dogs new tricks! Thanks so much.
