    Great indoor thoughts for actually seeing what we think we are doing. The camera angle in the video didn’t show what you were explaining and the mirror image didn’t match up with what you wanted to show those watching. I will still set up a similar area to work on my set up during the cold non playing months.

      Glad you liked it. We couldn’t show that view because you would be seeing Pete filming me. Just do it in the mirror with what I said in mind and you will see what I was talking about.

    Similar to an exercise video, which has the participant follows the the multiple exercise routines for 20-30 minutes, I would think a similar video of your favorite golf golf swing exercises would be great where we could put the video on and follow your “workout”. I realize this would be a long video of 20 minutes or so, but having having a half dozen or so different set up, back swing, down swing, ect exercises to follow for a daily 20 minute work out would be great. For example, you could have a dozen repetitions of the helicopter swing, your favorite practice swing of having the club six inches off the ground and swinging through to the finished parallel club between the ears, unhinged wrists checking the butt of the club before and after, lifting the rear heal, keeping your head down until 3/4 through,ect….

    I know we can develop our own program, but think having you takes us through a routine where we can put on the video and follow what you consider the best practice “exercises” would be great, not only for us snow bound golfers, but also to use during the entire season, especially before we play.

    Just a thought

    Hi Paul

    Many thanks for your regular tips and encouragement to practice and keep at it.

    I have been with you for just over a year now, and finally starting to see my handicap hit its lowest levels since being with you.

    Even though, my handicap wasn’t dropping dramatically this year, I was not discouraged, as I felt like I was a much better (and more informed ) golfer than Pre – Swing Machine Golf days where my handicap was lower. I always had faith, and knew I was moving forward.

    Even playing comp this week, I am playing with all these other club members, and there shots are going everywhere. Most of the time, they do not know why they are making their errors, but through all your teaching, I quietly smile to myself, ” i know what you are doing” because of Paul & Swing Machine Golf!

    Today, I shot my best score in 2013…..thanks, and will keep committing to your system and guidance. It really works!

      It can take time. Sometimes you need to take a step back to go forward. Glad you are sticking with it.

      Knowing what you are doing right/wrong is great. How can people ever improve if they don’t even know what they are working on. Keep up the good work.

    In Charlotte the weather is cool to cold this time of year and recently very wet limiting range time. Using this tip as inspiration I unrolled an old thick rubber mat that was once under a universal weight system. I put the 4 X 8 mat in front of a glass storm door outside on the back deck. I am now able to see myself got through the proper setup routine and the swing motions. I no longer have an excuse not to practice. A little fire in the fire pit helps my Mini-Aussie and I stay comfortable while we work on our Swing Machine golf. My wife loves for the Aussie and I to be out of the house as much as possible so maybe you should add marriage enhancement as as Swing Machine benefit! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Paul!

      Good job. I don’t like excuses. There are none with my method. Each position gives the person feedback. All they have to do is repeat it until they have it mastered. The whole problem is the ball. Everyone wants to hit it whereas they should be working on the move. Glad you are committed to doing indoor practice. You will see a huge improvement in your game in not time doing it this way.

      Happy New Year to you too!

    Paul, I have a net in my garage so can go out there and swing. So more indoor swing ideas would be great and I support the idea from above about “work-out” video. Would be helpful. Thanks for what you do. Jaime

      We are trying our best! Keep up with practice swing at home and keep your spirits up.

  7. Thanks, Paul. This video is great. I also find the Liveview camera (the digital mirror) helps a lot in looking at setup. I check my setup each time before I record my swing.
