    I need 4/5 drills to get this down better. I feel like I slow my hips too much but don’t ever chicken wing anything. I just don’t feel fully extended like I used to and as a result lose distance but never the fairway. Any drills to better master this part…⛳️

    Hi Paul,
    You state that the hips stop at the release point and everything then “catches up”. Does that mean that the hips and upper torso complete the swing in unison or do the hips still outpace the upper body? My old swing thought (before my Paul Wilson era) was the left shoulder back and the left shoulder all the way through to the finish. My downswing thought now is the belt buckle to the finish. I tried my belt buckle trigger to the release point and convert to my Freddie Couples left shoulder finish with some amazing results. Too much thinking on the downswing? Your thoughts.
    Thank you. Howard

    Hey Paul, Video of my swing shows my arms are stretched out at the proper release point, but my wrists are already beginning to rehinge just past impact. Thoughts?

    Thanks, Bill

    • This would probably mean that your hips are too square at contact. This is why you would be flippy through the swing. You want to start putting more effort in your hips to hit the ball. This way your arms would lag behind slightly and not flip through contact.
