    Paul, when i try turning my hips faster i end up with the clubface open resulting in a high slice. Does that just fall back to get the ball hooking first drill? Any other drills to help with the upper body timing?

      David,

      This is telling you that you have not rolled your wrists enough plus when you try to get more power body you are doing it at top speed. You need to roll it and get it hooking first. Then and only then do you add some more lower body. Watch your ball. If you still pull hook it that’s great. This means you took your mind off of rolling it and you still rolled it. All you need to do it start your lower body a little sooner and you will hit it dead straight. I have done this a million times. There is no other drill needed. Fix the spin (wrists) then fix the direction (body).

    Paul,

    Sounds like something all except the very top golfers should work on. Since many of us do not have the proper area to practice this
    “separated” swing with a club in hand the many times and frequencies to change our old habit, is there any value to do the proper
    separated swing with no club in hand. This way we can do this drill in the office, at hgome in the bedroom, etc.

      Walter,

      All top golfers are already doing this. All golfers who learned as an adult need to work on this because they are not doing this at all. You do not need an area larger than the space to swing a club to work on this. You hold the club in the air. You start the lower first then feel the club follow. You do this nightly and get used to it. Then you apply it to the ball with a teed up 7 iron.

      You can do this with no club if you want too. Any movement of hips first in the downswing will help as this is a coordinated movement that takes constant and consistent practice.

    This is my biggest bad habit to fix.
    The good thing is Ive only been hitting with my arms my first year playing but the past 8 to 10 months with your good video coaching, my hips and knees knees are firing first and I’m really feeling that sensation with my wrists cracking the whip instead of my arms hitting like a hammer.
    Thanks Paul for “drilling” this into my head!

      John,

      Perfect. Glad we got you as a rookie. Hitting with arms for 30 years is tough to fix. Glad you are getting the whipping feeling. Keep feeling this. You will never want the hammer feeling once you get used to this new feeling.

  5. Hi Paul

    I’m sure that I speak for many when I say that I your appreciate individual answers to our questions.

    I guess that faster hip rotation/ touch knees would come from strengthening the key muscles involved in hip rotation. Can you recommend specific exercises from the Flexibility part of your website that would help develop this speed – it would help to make the website more seamless.

    Thank you.

    • Gordon,

      Strengthening them will definitely help.

      To find the associated tips just go the red navigation bar. To the far right type in hips and all tips with that in the title will come up. Then scroll down the page and look for Jeremy’s picture. Go to the next page and so on. I did this and his start to show up. This will give you some great exercises to do.

      Here are the 2 I want you to do:
