    Amazing tip as always Paul! I have learned so much from your amazing system. As I have studied the tips I have realized that everything is improved by sticking to the fundamentals of your system.
    As I am learning to have powerless arms my speed and lag have increased.
    The more i practice positions and fundamentals, and apply them to the components the better my hitting is getting.
    I spent an hour each day for a week on each element. The progress has been amazing.
    I have seen an increase in those “feel like nothing, perfect shots”. I have days where it’s 50% of the time and others where it’says about 25% (usually when I’m working on something new or trying to improve). How often do you feel that “easy, perfect shot”? Is it 100%, 75%, or something else?
    I love the systems self correcting elements and these tips. I am 48 and have only been golfing for 6 months but you have made it so fun to learn. It only took me a few sessions to correct my slice once I understood how. Thanks for this amazing system. Best money I ever spent on golf!

      Glad you liked it and lad you are improving. I love hearing it.

      I am trying to feel powerless arms 100% of the time. Do I do it every time. No. I rarely practice so I do stupid things (which I know I shouldn’t do).

      Stay focused and keep doing what you are doing. It really sounds like you truly understand what I want you to do.

      In order to do it every time you need to never get greedy and be content with how far you can hit it. We all want more so we start hitting harder and harder and the arms creep in. When I really had it back in 1999 I never tried to get more than I was capable of. My accuracy was amazing.

    Great stuff again. As a slightly better player in addition to working on your positions I’ve also worked on the lag and separation tips for some time. My consistency and striking has never been better and I’ve been playing all my life. Very satisfying!!
    However, recently out of the blue I can hit a high push fade with my mid irons. This is particularly noticeable on a par three with a five or six iron off a low tee. Starts fifteen yards left ( I’m a lefty ) and falls off another ten.
    Any thoughts?

      Glad you liked it. Thanks.

      Are you a lefty? You are saying push fade yet said your ball started left so I am assuming you are a lefty.

      Push fades are easy to fix. You simple do the roll over drill 3-5 times before you are about to hit your shot. This will unlock your wrists. Now as you step up to hit your shot make sure you are coiling and uncoiling in a circular motion as opposed to sliding. Also, you need to watch your ball as you hit it. I just did a tip on this here:

      Looking Early Locks The Hinge:

      I get the feeling you are trying to knock down the pin on these approach shots. In doing so you are looking to see how close you potentially hit it.

    Could you do a future tip on the rotation of the lead arm in the backswing and especially thru the impact zone and beyond? You may have done this previously, but I was unable to find any via the search boxes. Thanks.

      You don’t need to be rotating anything manually unless you are slicing. Think about it. At address you pre-determined the widest point of your arc from the top of your shoulder to the clubhead. Mid way is a loose hinge. If you did nothing from the top wouldn’t mass (club) want to get to its widest point? Yes, and it would want to do this 100% of the time. In doing so the club would have to rotate because you also pre-determined that when the club is at its widest point the face is square.

      Keep in mind this widest point is not until about 2 feet after impact with irons and 3 feet with driver.

      I was going to do a tip on this so expect it in the near future.

    Excellent “static ” demonstration of the lag angle .Now you have to make this static lag become real. Do the training rubber bands of MIKE BAUMANN you recommend help you to acheive that ,then you keep aware of these positions when you’re swinging for real .This has to do also with the “separation” or “dissociation” between upper and lower body .

      Glad you liked it.

      The majority of long drivers use The Ultimate Swing Trainer. If they use it, I would suggest using it. It works but you have to use it regularly.

      If you have the lag mastered you are never eve4n thinking about it every again. I haven’t thought about it in 30 odd years.
