I have been a paying member for a couple of months. I enjoy and agree with many of your tips but not all. The swing I am working on and do enjoy these tips. Some of your pitching and putting tips are not set in stone in my mind. What kind of pissed me off with this video is your somewhat sarcastic remarks at the start of the video….basically that 99% are locking their front leg too late…you may be right but I think the sarcasm is not cool at all.

Well I say it how I say it at the time.
Hey Paul, thanks again for diagnosing correctly an acute problem I’ve been having with the “leg lock” part of the golf swing…You we’re 100% right on again and additionally, I didn’t perceive your remarks to be “sarcastic” in the least….Please keep up the same level of animation that you always have——your desire for all of us students to get it right is greatly appreciated!!! Thanks again!!
Yep, I didn’t see it either but whatever. I’ve heard this in the past. If I don’t lay it out for you who will? I don’t candy coat it.
Glad it helped you.
Glad you covered this in detail. Much better understood.was not sure of the timing.
Very good. This is why I did it. After seeing person and person after person doing this I figure there are many more. Go to do it right away.
thanks paul, that’s exactly what I’ve been noticing in my swing, too late or not at all. I’ve been trying the straightening of the leg first but it seems you’re turning and straightening simultaneously. whatever the case, earlier rather than later! anyway it’s a very timely tip for me. thanks, joe
Glad it helped. Yes, doing it versus not is better. If you overdo it just slow down.
Robert, I don’t consider that Paul’s introductory comments are sarcasm. To me his comments show the dedication of someone who has been teachings the powerless arms swing for some 25 years and regularly detects some crucial error performed by some of his many students. In my opinion, his somewhat stark comments at the beginning of some of his video clips are appropriate introductions to what he is going to address. I know that he certainly gets my attention but, then again, I find that Paul’s comments are very much warranted. Have a nice day.
Glad you liked it. I just watched it again. I don’t see it. Dedication to changing how the world swings a golf club. I will continue doing what I do.
Thanks Paul. Really helpful. The slo-mo really helped. I have been trying to touch the legs while hitting the ball and now I know it happens just after.
Just a suggestion: how about a category of slo-mo videos in your website? They can be hard to find.
Glad you liked it. I thought that would clarify it.
Did you get the swings? There are here: https://ignitiongolf.com/start-here/ the scroll down. Not sure where I can put them so everyone can find them. I need to shoot new ones too in high def slow mo.
In the slow motion view it looks like you shift the Weight to the left before you straighten the leg. Is that correct?
Thanks again for clarifying the timing.
Great tip and not at all DEMEANING.
You are shifting and turning at the same time. In no way am I thinking shift though. I am thinking turn because I know the shift occurs if I get to the touch the legs position. Can’t do it if you don’t shift.
I have a tendency to keep my head down to long after impact. When I let my head come up sooner, I find that its much easier to achieve positions 1and 2. Does this make sense to you?
Keeping your head down too long restricts your follow through. This is fine if you are a beginner and topping it but onc you are making contact I don’t recommend looking too long.
Just do this: Topping: Watch for the Blur: https://ignitiongolf.com/watch-for-the-blur/
Not sure where I see any sarcasm. I think this is one of the best tips I’ve seen so far.
Me either. I just watched it again.
I surely do not sense any sarcasm either. Sometimes we have to hear the plain truth. I rarely see amateurs touching the legs and locking thr right knee. I see pros doing it though. Great video Paul.
I am the guy to lay it out. Sometimes people don’t want to hear it but if I don’t tell you no one else will. I didn’t see it either. Pros definitely lock the leg. Pros who learned in the 70’s may have a bent knee because we were taught differently back then.
Great video Paul. Looking back at my swing analysis with Pete I can see I am doing the locking of the leg to late. I am finding that if I have that swing thought at the top of my backswing I forget my down swing trigger which is turn my belt buckle but I will persevere with this drill I always thought that if I turn my hips fast the left leg would lock on it’s own. Keep the good work I look forward to your tips everyday
Thanks. Glad you liked it.
You can’t forget the trigger. This is what triggers your swing and it is for life. When you trigger with the belt buckle make sure the lead leg locks too. You might have to help it lock a little but it should be locking because you’re turning.

Way to go Paul, great tip and clarification. I like it told the way you see it. No pussy footing around.

Thanks. If you hadn’t figured it out this applies to you. Hope you’re doing it.
Wow, another super video tip. Watching your slowmo swing near end of video, believe I see a major issue in what I’m doing. From the “head on” slomo, when you begin the uncoil going to the “touch the legs” position, your head does not move laterally towards the target it appears until nicely past impact. I’m certain that I’m in my dreaded sway maneuver during this 1/2 second or so.. Has been my nemesis for years…
Glad you liked it and glad you picked up on an issue you have. Here is how I go this many years ago.
Watch Back of The Golf Ball: https://ignitiongolf.com/watch-backside-golf-ball/
So you get into the habit of doing this. If you move forward there is no way you will see the back of the ball. So you do this and get used to it. Once fixed stop thinking about it.

Paul, Great tip on locking the leg! As far as the sarcasm, I teach at a community college, when the student is ready, the lesson appears. I love your “to the point lessons” and I do not see the sarcasm. Thank you for what you are doing for us that have been so dedicated to the game and almost quit because of all the complexity and failure to achieve results! Thank you and Happy New Year!!!!
Glad you like the lessons. I appreciate it.
I say it how I say it.
