I have been using your “powerless arms” method and have seen a lot of improvement in my swing. I a senior and can hit driver (like you describe) 180-210. I agree with you and think there is more. What do you think is a good loft for driver to get the arc you describe?

You want a higher lofted driver, since the golf ball is designed to have less spin now so the more loft will get the golf ball to get higher in the air. 10.5 or even 11.5 degree driver would be good for you. There are plenty of tour players that use 10.5 degree drivers, as you want your ball flight to look like a rainbow. Try more lofted drivers and see what works best for you. I made a review for teh Speed System Drivers a few months ago and they have more loft on them for the optimal shot. You might want to look into those also.

Paul, I’m trying to get the loose wrists concept down, but it seems if they are too loose I lose control of the club face. How tight is your grip out of a scale of 1-10?
Thanks for the help as always!

You want to make sure that you first have a secure grip. If your grip is coming off of the golf club then the clubface can go anywhere when you grip back on. Some students have misinterpreted that you have to have relaxed wrists and arms and not floppy wrists and arms. Next make sure that your wrists and arms are working correctly; correct hinge and correct arms when you swing. You might have to work on your arms when hitting some shots. Check out this tip:

Hi! Your video was encouraging, so today I worked through a bucket slowly and with relaxed wrists and arms like you said, and did fine with irons but poorly with woods, especially my driver. I got some distance but sliced a lot. Frustrating. I suspect my grip gets too loose. At 68yo, I’m lucky to reach 200. What daily drills can I do to help wrists and slices? Thanks.
