In all due respect Paul, where in god’s
name did you find this guy Kevin. He has no idea what he’s doing despite all your efforts. Judging from his swing, he appears to be a beginner. In any event, I give you a lot of credit for working with him, but for the average golfer the video is not helpful. I would suggest that you use one of your students that has progressed in the golf swing.
Overall I think you do a great job. Thanks for everything.
PS- Tell Kevin to lose the red hat. Lol

This is my normal student. Keep watching. You will see how good I get him hitting it in the next 2 tips.
You keep telling us how to do the right thing many different ways. Every once in a while I get a tip that I can really relate to. Is there a place I can store this tip so I can come back to it.
Just look above an tip. “save to favorites” then scroll down the page and it will be there. You can also use the dashboard. That is what it is for. Watch the video on how to use it:
I really like the part of the video where you say that all you have to do is turn your shoulders and your hips will automatically turn. I have always put a lot of attention to the sequence of starting my hips first. It is much easier if I don’t have to think about my hips. It also solves my problem of sometimes cocking my shoulders instead of just continuing to turn.
I like that you have a less accomplished player in the video. It gives me more hope that I can also get to doing it right.

Glad you picked up on that. I tell this to everyone yet few hear it. Your shoulders cannot get to upwards of 90 degrees without your hips moving so why move your hips. The have to move and when they do they will move the same amount every time without thinking about it.
Yes, Kevin is who I typically teach on a daily basis. He was a great student. Nice guy too. I will do more now the weather is getting better.
I tend to disagree with George on his point re: Kevin. It really helps me to occasionally see someone that does not have a pro’s swing (i.e. Paul’s near perfect swing) demonstrate a technique being described by Paul. I’m amazed on how quickly Kevin’s swing looked better at the end of this lesson. And some of Paul’s points of emphasis are easier to see in Kevin. I do agree with David above in that hearing some different options of achieving a similar result can help. For example instead of focussing on rotating my hips on the downswing, instead I now start with pushing and locking the left knee backwards. This makes it much easier to clear my hips for a better swing path and more speed. The hips just follow now very easily. This was easy to see with Kevin and now I can do it too. Same with the coiling point on focus on the shoulders. Kudos to Kevin.
Thanks again. It all really helps!
Glad you liked it. That was a fun lesson. He was a great guy. As we continue to driver it gets even better. Stay tuned.

Excellent!! The detail you provided, Paul, “shoulders, legs” makes it obvious to me that I’m starting my downswing with shoulders which is aiding and abetting my arm swing. So, I’ll use the #1 drill to work on “back to the target and keep it there while legs touching increases the coil of the spring until finally the club has to come down”??? Seems a great problem solver to the arms wanting to fire at the top of the back swing…. ??
Very good that you figured it out. This is vital to the spring-like effect in your swing. Yes, the legs and hips would be and should be starting slight first. The upper cannot stay up there forever so they will follow. This is the key so try to do this as much as you can in practice swings until you are good at it.
Great tip to learn easier.
