Hi Paul I’ve been practising your methods for 3+ weeks now and my game has improved. Perhaps more importantly my mental game has improved which has helped me a lot. Perhaps one physical aspect as an example I can hit 100 balls on the range with no pain in my upper body the next day plus my dreaded golfer’s hip (right side as I’m a lefty) is no more, maybe you should have been a doctor! Seriously the improvement in the short to medium irons is very noticeable I’m now a bit of a demon with a 7 iron. However I do have a lot of upper body strength owing to working with my arms and chest manually printing for many years, but never mastered the woods always slicing to the left. For the last 10 days I’ve been able to hit my R11 3 wood with moderate success but the driver has always stayed at home. Took it to the range tonight and yes an improvement. I was told by an instructor that the R11 driver is not suitable for me as I swing slow (85 -87mph flightscope and I should always pre load the wrists. This effectively turns the front of the club head in a bit and seems to deloft the face. He also said I need a club with more loft as I swing slow. Now I’m forgetting this and have adjusted the face for maximum loft. Just sit the club behind the ball and swing. It’s straighter but doesn’t got too far. Any comments would well be appreciated.

Paul, That’s great new that you are improving.
Glad you are out of pain. I keep telling people my swing is pain-free if you do it right. If you are in pain you are doing something wrong.
The R-11 may or may not be the driver for you. You need to be fitted by a professional clubfitter that puts you on a launch monitor. It is the combination of numerous things that all you to determine if you have the right club or not. So this cannot be determined based on your swing speed.
Next, never ever ever turn the face in at address or when you take the club back. If you do this you are changing the loft and face on the club. From now on start back as you are with the club sitting flush.
There are many factors to get more power which I am going through in this series of tips. In a nutshell you get more power by loosening the wrists and turning your body faster. I have a bunch of lag drills on this site.
Also, you need the understanding of how to square the face:

Then you need to be doing a lot of lower body work. Do these drills constantly:
