Paul…I have been a member for over two years. You are a Golf Genius! My handicap has dropped from a 15 to an 8 without effort!! I practice your prowess at home in the mirror three to 5 nites a week for about 30 minutes. I then hit balls maybe twice a week for muscle memory and it works! When my swing is “off” I can put it back together now so much easier! It used to take me weeks to find my flaws…It now takes me rethinking using my lower body instead of my arms….”No more chopping wood” Thank You…D.S.G.

Good stuff. I love hearing it. Two years well spent. Now set the goal higher. This year you need to get to a 5 or better. More precise movement. Maybe more distance. Better short game. Know your mistakes. You can do it.
Another series of quite interesting videos and comments on the backswings of several “PAUL WILSON “followers .It’s really surprising to observe how different these backswings look like ,and how the “PAUL WILSON Fundamentals ” are not respected in different ways .In the Tour Players backswings ,though not shown in slow motion or fixed positions ,there are a lot of differences also.In my opinion ,all of the PAUL WILSON fundamentals apply ,but the most important one ,is the “coiled as a spring” thought which should be dominant.If you coil properly the upper body against a fixed and stable lower body (Don’t move your hips much in the backswing ) you are on your way to generate a powerful throuhgsing/ downswing .
I also like the “HIDEKI MATSUYAMA stop” at the top which enables without any hurry the powerful unwinding of the coiled body
I found them interesting too. I like to see how people are learning my stuff. I think the main thing is holding the backswing too long to take the picture. I should have clarified. Holing back it off so it looks too short. I don’t think a lot of these swings would have been that short.
Coiling i critical. No coil. No torque leads to hitting with arms.

I never had a “note” in my head on my left knee position in the backswing. Thanks for your comment on this. Its good know because I can focus on my knee facing towards/behind the ball instead of straight ahead.
It really feels different and I feel more of a coil when I load on my back leg. (I think I was afraid to move my hips too much on the backswing.
You’re right, I was holding the position too long to take a picture of my backswing and lost some my shoulder coil.
P.S. In your review on my follow-through swing I’ve been really working on moving my weight forward, my spine more upright and of course keeping those knees together in the follow thru!
Your swing looks great. You are really close so just pick off the things I mentioned one a time and you will be a a while new level.
A lot of people were keeping the lower body too still so the knee is forward. Pretty easy to fix. You can do this in a few swings.
Very good with the follow through. That is what I am saying. You make these few more changes and I think you will be looking great.

Paul,thank you for your comments, I really appreciate. I will double check loading to the in step and neutral grip.
I´m very pleased you liked my backswing, follow your advice and practice in front of mirror as much as I can, checking the positions “coil, hinge, touch the legs, touch the head”. You are very consistent, always telling us the same basic things but in many different ways. Great job!!!
Yes, you have a great looking swing. The practice swings work. I keep saying it and you are proof.
I guess I will keep saying it and saying it. Glad you are doing well. I love seeing it.
