    I’ve really enjoyed your body swing lessons and ignition golf tips. I need some time to develop the body turn and loose wrists since I’ve been using the arms trying to hit the ball all my life, I’m 68
    Working on the experimental range the other day with loose wrists I discovered the lever of the club head turning around the shaft. Effortless clubhead speed, just need to learn how to trust it
    You present the material clearly in great detail, you’re not giving quick fixes.
    It’s hard work and takes time, I may be back next year if I can take the changes to the course.

      Glad you like it. Yes, it takes work but you need to know exactly what to work on. This is the key. Just do practice swings at home working on the positions check the feedback and checkpoints so you know you are doing them right. It is all about the movement. Get the movement you get the ball.

    Great tips Paul! Been doing these drills and a side benefit is it made me aware of a flaw in my takeaway. Question: When I do this drill, I get just a small amount of separation at the base of my left hand at the end of the “swing/drill”. Is that correct or should my entire left hand still be gripped tight to the club?

      Glad you are working on it.

      It shouldn’t be letting go but you may be going a little higher up into the through swing. Just go until the back arm is just a little above parallel to the ground into the through swing. I really don’t like letting go.

    I have worked hard on you method. I try to throw out about a year and couldn’t make it work. I gave up and went back to being an arm swing dropper. Last year I hurt my back twice during the summer and watched a couple weeks of playing time decided I needed to do something different I am older like most of your clients. I have finally practice tired enough that I can leave the club behind and turn the body through and Wala it works. Hi good out there is a golfer I have a great swing people compliment me on my swing all the time now I am dedicated to making this work I have now read instituted your method since August and I’m getting better every day. . It would be nice if I could send a video and have somebody look at my swing do you offer that type of service?

      Glad you are back into it and doing well. I keep telling everyone to stop hitting balls. Just work on it at home. This is the best and fastest way to get it. Instead people want to whack balls. If so, they keep hitting which takes them way longer if ever to get this. The ball is the problem. You need too do the positions so many times you don’t know any other way to do it. With my method each position gives you feedback and checkpoints so you can do them. So you just need to see it an different way. You are working on the movement. You get the movement, you get the ball. So into the future keep doing the practice swings to make it even better. People are starting to take notice of your swing which is definitely telling you that you are getting it.

      We used to do swing analysis. We will be doing it again the near future. We are a 2 man show. I don’t have time so that leaves it to my assistant Steve who is on great on a computer. Once he is better we will offer it again but wait … I have something new I am working on that has never been done or offered before. So once it is ready I will let everyone know. Always thinking about you guys …

    Hello Paul
    Enjoying your tips. The only question is when you practice rolling the wrist it is only a drill and we don’t not use it when we play. Secondly I slice the ball so I would roll the wrist on some shots then use my lower body and swing hinging the wrist and not rolling the wrist. The rolling of the wrist is to cure the slice by loosening the wrist is that correct???
    Thanks again

      Yes, this is a drill. Do it when you play and you would hook everything. If you are playing you would do the drill in practice swings 3-5 times if you sliced one to unlock the wrists. Then you are always thinking body as you hit your shots.

      The rolling cures slice spin. So if you are slicing you need to work on this drill until you rarely ever slice it. Once you can do this you focus on body to straighten it out. So start rolling it at home every night and at the range. Go to memorize the feeling get rid of the slice.

    Paul ,Shouldn’t this drill include the footwork ?
    I use the “IMPACT SNAP “training aid to do this exercise .It’s shorter than a club and less cumbersome so you have less risks of hitting a piece of furniture indoors .You also have to do in parallel drills to strenghten the wrists and make them more flexible .

      I just don’t use a lot of training aids. You have described the use of many of them in the past. I just don’t think the majority of people have the budget for them while others buy them and don’t use them regularly. So I try to think of things people can so without further investment. If I really think it will help I will mention it and do a review of it.
