    I’m struggling with this again. I was over releasing and hooking pretty severely, I realize it’s a bit of loose-base aka ‘seeing the grass’ which also contributed to a severely inside-out path. My trouble is that I have a lot of difficulty releasing the club and maintaining a circular motion if I feel like the club is going too vertical – this is a weird mental block; I end up with a very high finish (similar to what you said about Arnold Palmer I believe) and not finishing with club between ears, I’m also losing a ton of distance. Do you have a thought or visualization to help this? Keeping the belt buckle over the Ball was a huge help in keeping the legs stable, hoping for something similar.

      So why are you not doing the touch the head position? You cannot do this position if the club is too vertical in the through swing. So you need to know this position and be thinking of doing it from the top of the backswing. So the body start then you immediately think about touching the head. This means you are manually taking the club and setting it there. Once you do, you look for the feedback to know you did it 100% right. You do it daily at home, at the range and when you play until you train it to go there. At this point it will go there on its own.

      One Of The Secrets To The Golf Swing:

      I would be doing tons of practice swings nightly until this is fixed. You need to make the position important. Right now, it isn’t but with repetition it will be so you will want to do it. Then you will hit the same ending point each time.

      You are seeing the hook as a problem. You need to see this as good. You were on the wrong direction which means you should be thinking you need more body in the downswing to straighten it out.

    Hi Paul

    I find that when I bring the club back WAY inside it helps me to turn the club around the body, shallow the swing, and swing from the inside.

    When I feel laid off at the top, it also seems to help me rotate my body on the downswing and hit power draws.

    But I get confused when I read tips saying don’t start too far inside ?

    • Its only bad if you bring the club too far inside, this can cause too much depth into the backswing, the club potentially crossing the line and even a too flat of a backswing. You want as least amount of flaws as possible in your golf swing. For what you think is very inside might only be slightly inside and help with the rest of the golf swing. I would rather see a golfer with too inside of a backswing versus a club that goes outside the line with ne depth into the backswing.
