  1. 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.

    2 questions:

    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!
