Hey Paul, I’ve practiced step 1-4 for a few months and have them down pretty good. I do a lot of swings without the ball to get the motions down (I think you recommend that somewhere). I also have a net in my backyard to practice with a ball. Usually do 2-3 no balls swings, 1 with a ball. So far so good.
For the first time this season, I went to the local par 3. Went by myself and played a few balls at once. Swing felt much better and most of the times my knees would touch and club would be at the back of my head. But I find I have no power. Like an 8 iron goes well below 100 yards. I’m not coiling as much as I should. Or maybe not coiling at all.
This is where my swing completely falls apart. When I coil and I turn my shoulders, for some reason it throws everything off. Most of the time I’m digging into the ground before I hit the ball. I guess I’m shifting my body somehow but not sure what I’m doing.
1. I still have a little bit of a slice. I feel by not coiling I’m hitting with my arms more. When I loosen up everything works nicely. But it’s hard for me to be loose all the time with my wrists. Would that cause a slice?
2. I’ll practice the coil like I did without a ball. Is this the best way to get this down? I’m not sure why my body shifts so much when I coil.
Thanks again for all the help!

Your practice sounds exactly like I would want someone to practice who has a net. I like it.
You need to be putting way way way more legs and hips into your swing. I am really move hard and fast although it doesn’t look like it.

How Much Legs (jump): https://ignitiongolf.com/jump-feel-legs/
Fat shots – too much weight on your back foot at impact. You are NOT uncoiling fast enough. You need to touch the legs faster. Right now the arms are pulling down trapping you on the right foot at impact.
1. Yes you are hitting. The harder you hit, the tighter the wrists, the more open the face. You need to do the roll over drill until you consistently hook it.

2. You need to see your body as a spring. You coil the top. Once tight, you uncoil the bottom. Simple. You are coiling but not uncoiling. This is due to hitting. I am not thinking about hitting anything. I am applying my downswing trigger and going through to the touch the follow through positions knowing the ball will be hit.
You need to do these drills every night:

Also, choose a downswing trigger to make this happen:

Hey Paul thanks for this! Very awesome and I really appreciate it. I’ve been to the par 3 near me 2 times since this. I usually go when no one is there so I can drop a few balls. I am finding my right arm hurts a little after I go. Which probably means I’m still using my arms to hit it.
I’m really working on hooking it but can’t seem to. I’m definitely more loose in my arms and keep thinking to hing and unhinge. When I do that, I hit the ball pretty nice. But I’m finding it hard to coil/uncoil, touch my legs and club at the back of my head while thinking about everything. I’m probably loose with my arms about 50% of the time. Before these drills I was probably at like 20% so an improvement.
I’m going to work on the hook drills until I can do that consistently. I just can’t seem to do it 100% of the time.
