  1. These slo-mo pictures of your swing are incredible! They give me so much to look for in my own swing that I now feel without hesitation I will be in mid-season form on an opening day up here in the NorthEast.
    Do you see yourself presenting the same format with Sand-shots? Preferably in a packed (firm) sand and in soft sand in which I find myself digging in.
    One last question. Do you see the different elements of the full swing coming back to the dashboard? I always found that to be a great go-to set of screens whenever I returned to an over the top swing or a shortened follow-through affecting my game.
    See you on the tee,

      I was going to do some more angles in the future. Didn’t think about short game. I guess I could do those too.

      Follow this tip for hard/wet sand:

      I am in the process of taking all of my sites and putting them under one roof so I will be looking at the dashboard at some point. I will keep that in mind.

    Hello Paul,
    My third year as a customer thoroughly enjoying and benefitting your swing machine technique…
    The best comment I can give is from golfers that I play with, who all comment on how effortlessly my swing looks…
    I am 74 years old and almost shoot my age but don’t have the speed that I used to have but looking forward to improving my flexibility and my golf ability…

      Glad to still have you here. Glad you are getting compliments on your swing. It’s a great feeling. Keep up the good work.

    OMG, these r the best…..absolutely perfect for comparing to my swing that I record of myself….Thank u Paul for these….Shots out of sand would be fantastic as well…..Thx soooo much…..

      Glad you like them. I will think of the short game ones. Need to think about it.

  4. Agree with everything said above. It reinforces one of your previous comments that you only have one golf swing on a full shot.
    I look at these regularly particularly after a poor round. Happy New Year from a dark Scotland and looking forward to the Spring.

      Happy New Year too.

      Yes, you only have one swing. Be a lot harder if we had 13 plus your putter.

      Glad you you like the swings. Thought they would be helpful for people.

  5. An effortless ,smooth ,compact and well timed swing .
    Keep these images in your head when playing your own swing
    Thank you ,Paul and I wish you a happy New Year

    What a beautiful swing, Paul. How I would love to emulate you!

      Anyone can do what I do. These are the positions I teach. It’s only 4. Just do them one at a time and you will build it. Do it in practice swings every night and 2 months you will have it. No joke.

    These videos are great. They really put in perspective all the components, and yes all my golf friends are commenting just the same as previous comments above. This swing has me down to a 1 hcp in my swindle, 5 club, and I still have a way to go and tons more practice swings. I second the bunker series. Thanks .

      Glad you like them. Thanks.

      Sounds like you are well on your way. Yes, practice swings. Every night.

    These super slo-mo videos are great. Thanks for posting them. It’s more proof that what you teach works on every club. As well as you present it in the lessons, I am still struggling to get the proper torso rotation and relaxed arms that I need, but I am getting closer and not giving up. When I finally get there, I hope that look of satisfaction on your face at the end comes with the deal lol. Happy New Year.

    Happy New Year Paul & Team at Ignition Golf – Love the slo-mo footage! Agree with all comments above, extremely helpful in giving us the ability to view & emulate your swing Paul. Hope I look as effortless in spring, currently spending the northern climes winter blues by swinging in the garage.

      Happy New Year. Glad you like the swings. I thought they would be good for people to see.

      Just stick to the positions and do the practice swings. It’s all about understanding and repetition. Anyone can do this.

  10. Paul,

    I notice that your left foot moves outward a bit more toward the target as you start the downswing. Mine does too so I feel a bit better after seeing yours in Slo-Mo.

    Watching yours in Slo-Mo is pure poetry in motion. It really helps us all. Great series idea!

      I noticed that on playback. Keep in mind I don’t practice and I hadn’t hit balls in about 2 months before I shot those swings. Does it matter if it moves a little? Doesn’t see to affect me but I don’t come over the top. It it was twisting and you were coming over the top then there would be a correlation there so it should be worked on. I wouldn’t get to hung up on it.

        I am in total agreement with your answer. For me, a slight turn to the left with my forward foot helps me freely rotate my hips – better activating my lower body. Much like a baseball hitter does when he strides into the pitch.

          Just do a quick check of this each time for a week or so and it will be natural before long for you.

    Hi Paul it is grate to look at and try to emulate loose arms and hip rotate.
    Thanks. A bit wet in the UK.
