    Thanks, Paul. Good stuff. Is always nice to see lots of comparisons as hearing you talk about the subtleties helps me review my own vids and pics.

    Very helpful instruction, Paul. Straightening of the left leg is an obvious flaw in my swing. At least I’m not an orphan on this one.

      Yes, this is typically what people do … or don’t do. Need to trust the move. If you want more power this is how to get it. Tricky for some at first but well worth it.

    I’ve had “knees together at the finish” drummed into my head for a year and a half, I can’t believe I sent you a shot where they weren’t touching :-/

    This is the first time I’ve taken a picture of my swing. Thanks for the analysis!

      Glad you saw it. I would have thought you had that position. It’s important for using the legs and hips.

    Paul ,Golf Teachers MIKE ADAMS and PETER CROKER (From AUSTRALIA )contend there’s a relation between hip speed and grip :
    -slow hip speed = weak grip (V left hand to the left :one knuckle left hand showing)
    -medium hip speed= neutral grip (V’left hand to the chin :two knuckles left hand showing )
    -high hip speeed = strong grip (V’left hand to the right three knuckles left hand showing
    They don’t quantify the hip speed :what’s slow ,what’s average ,what’s fast ?
    I don’t believe in this theory .Following your advice ,I play with a neutral grip .I would say that as an old man ,my hip speed should be rather slow but my shots are always straight and long .
    What comments do you have on the subject ?
    I didn’t find a way to measure my hip speed and compare to others .
    Is there a tool to do so (other than TRACKMAN )?

      I think I hear something about this recently. I have seen a ton of bad golfers with slow hip speed with strong grips. I would say 90% of the people I see have strong grips. This is not to say they are bad swing. Just see way more strong than weak.

      There might be something to it. I would have to take note as I teach people from this point forward.

    Paul ,I have a question about hip rotation and shoulder-hip separation .
    It’s common place to say the power of the swing comes from the hips.
    There are two sources of power :
    -the rotation of the left hip around a straight left leg
    – the spring effect=uncoiling (The “TORQUE” )of the coiled shoulders against the hips ;JIM McLEAN coined that effect with the term the “X”factor
    It’s been established that the Pro’s turn their hips 45 ° or plus backwards and about the same amount (42°) in the throughswing .
    We senior citizens are stiff every where ,in particular in the hip area.
    Now some golf instructors tell you to turn your hips as much as you can going in the backswing (Even straightening your right leg to do so !!!!) ,others ,like you insist on the separation=coil of the shoulders against the hips_ and turning the shoulders at 90°(or less.Flexibility issue !) and not turning the hips back that much as they resist against the left instep dug in the turf.
    That’s what I do
    I have been working hard on the separation and the fast thrust forward of the hips .I have regained considerable distance doing so .
    Is there more I can do to get even better ?(Apart exercising more with THE ULTIMATE SWING TRAINER of MIKE BAUMANNN .I am up to three rubber bands to stretch together )

      Yes, turning back can be a issue. The main one I see though, is the person not uncoiling fast enough. When students come out for lessons I try to explain this. Then I show them what I am doing. Then they try it and they are not even close to what I am doing. Not sure yet how to explain how hard and fast I am doing this uncoil. I am not saying they have to do it as fast as my but any increase will translate to a faster whipping action of the club. Also, you don’t even have to coil back that far. 80 degrees is fine but the hips uncoiling has to be quick. Those telling people to move the hips going back know that this will cause a longer backswing which allows the person to pull the club down harder/faster. For someone hitting it nowhere this would appear to give them more power or a feeling of more power but as we age we get weaker. So it gets to the point where the person cannot it hit it that far even with the arms yet there are kids and petite player who hit it plenty long.

      In your case if you are turning upwards of 90 degrees that’s all you need to turn. Then you stay focused on uncoiling faster. I wish you would send us your swing. I can tell you instantly where you are going wrong or if you can improve it.

      Keep doing the swing off of the ground making the club whip faster and faster.

    Like many I find my lead leg is slightly bent even though I am trying to lock it. At what point in the swing should it feel like I am locking the lead leg? I understand I need to lock it and turn around it, touch the knees. Any tips on when it should feel locked or how to practice getting it locked?

    You put lots of emphasis on straight left leg. At what point in swing should it become straight. How does straight leg give us more power?
    Critique on follow thru very helpful.

    These tips are amazing. I get a lot out of seeing how other Ignition golfers swing.

    There are a few golfers in this tip that are overdoing the lower body move.

    Can you do a tip on this—when the belt buckle is 20-30 degrees left of parallel left in the follow through?

      Glad you like them. I pulled a whole bunch more from my ipad that I will be doing. It is so interesting the different interpretations of the swing there are. I will try to find one with too much follow through for you. Might be while.
