Paul, Thanks for the tip. I have been doing 50 practice swings every day that I do not play or go to the range. In the last year since watching your instructional video’s I have incorporated your elements into my practice swings. A couple years ago I quit taking practice swings prior to set-up because the shave the grass practice swing I was using never seemed to be perfect thus created doubt during the actual swing. Not a good thing. Lately I have incorporated your “Favorite” Drill as my pre set-up practice swing. No anxiety is created when there is no ball or grass to shave. Honestly, every practice swing I take, at home or on the course complies with your two follow thru elements, but I have not yet brought the touch the head on follow thru into my actual swing. I need to figure out why I do it in practice but not during the actual swing. My guess is that it is mental.Last, my major swing fault is tightening my grip. Nothing good happens when I tighten my grip. So my practice swing must include a nearly constant grip pressure ( just enough to keep the club from slipping). My best shots are those when my grip pressure is light and does not vary through out the swing. Truth is that I think my grip does tighten after release and that keeps my wrists from re-hinging so that touching my head on follow thru is difficult. Your thoughts !

Simple, you are thinking of hitting ball not touching your head. So change the thought. Your swing is not over until you touch the head. The pother problem is caring where the ball is going instead of caring about the position. So again, your swing is not over until it is touching your head.

Paul, along this road, I would like to thank you very much.5 years ago, a serious form of rheumatism was discovered which allowed me to give up golf. I was a mediocre golfer but it was my passion, so it was an incredible displeasure for me. After a long search, they found the right medication for me. I could limit my movement. A year ago, I discovered your golf technique, with powerless arms. Together with my kinesist we have looked at this and we went to work just my hip joints The result is incredible. My swing is smooth and tireless. My ball flight is much better than before and I’m playing back matches and the results are much better than before. It cost me many hours of exercise and training but the result Exceeds everything! Thank you again.
Excuse me for my English
Very good. I love hearing it. I try to tell people that my swing does not hurt your body in any way. You found this to be true. So many people out there are in pain swinging violently away with their arms. Unfortunately, their pain will never subside and they will give up golf. That’s unfortunate. I will just keep spreading the word and hopefully I can get to these people so they can still enjoy this game as you are.

First post from me after now almost six months of digesting and practising your teachings on the swing and its key touch points. At this stage the two videos that are having the greatest impact in terms of repeatability and consistency are ..
“Exactly How To Work On Your Swing” and “Effortless Power- How To Increase Your Golf Swing Speed”. The wrist roll over segment in Effortless power is a gem and when coupled with increased hip turn. I am seeing longer straighter and more consistent drives than ever at the range and all with a 1 wood. Most importantly I’m starting to get a taste and feel for the effect of loose hinges and powerless arms and yes the 3-1 method between shots is a must.
I recently played 18 holes which was the first on course test since I began. I am more encouraged and excited than ever to play less and practice even more. I watched and practised the short game videos and couldn’t believe the results during the game.
It is one hell of a journey unlearning the old habits and there is a way to go but I’m getting real results.
I thank you.

Good to hear from you. Glad you are working on it.
I’m so glad you are seeing results. I love hearing it. Sounds like you are really close. These are totally different feelings and you need to get used to them. As you keep playing the will become natural. The incentive is hitting great shots with a feeling of nothing. If you can or have ever done this why would you want any other swing?
Keep up the good work.

Just brilliant. Just a few swing thoughts and boom – a lovely fluid swing leading to a straight shot.
Since getting the hang of this my golfing buddy has given me a new nickname – ‘BMW;’ which refers to ‘the ultimate driving machine.’
Thanks Paul – changed my game totally and made it a lot of fun hitting those fairways.
That’s perfect. You need your buddy to join too. The game is so much easier from the fairway. Great feeling.
