  1. Hi Paul
    Thank you very much for your new version.
    One question though based on my limited knowledge.
    Both players seem to me no hinging action rather than short backswing.
    They seem to reduce extra power from hinging for accuracy.
    If so, my understanding of their swings especially coiling view point, they turn enough. A golfer like me who has very limited body flexibility, short backswing is more recomended as long as coiling is enough. Flex and smooth hinging action is more effective than trying to long back swing because it may lead to too much arm action misleading to upperbody swing. Please correct me if I am wrong. Best regards

      Don’t over analyze their swings. It’s just an image to help shorten a swing that is too long.

      Sounds like your swing is not too long. Yes, you need to fully hinge your wrists if you cannot turn fully. If you didn’t you wouldn’t be able to develop any power. So coil to your maximum but hinge to your maximum as well. This type of swing will still generate substantial power as I demonstrate here:
