Paul’s Swing – Transition To Impact

By | on February 12, 2020 | 7 Comments |

This is a new tip series I am going to be talking about from the transition to impact. This is an area that a lot of golfers start getting confused with. This is a great way of understanding what is happening during this brief moment of time. Once you start understanding what is going during this time, you will see what makes a golfer hit the golf ball better.

    Hi Paul,
    Are your arms totally relaxed through the whole swing, same as when you let them fall down as shown in an earlier video on this site ?


    • Yes, they are totally relaxed. This is something that has been worked on. They are not floppy though, this is something that a lot of people ask. THey are relaxed not floppy.

    Really getting a lot out of the series on swing analysis.
    How do you hold the lag compression so well, with loose wrists I end up with the hinge of the lag releasing earlier in the download swing?

    Thanks Mike

    Hi Paul,

    I really like the slow motion analysis of your swing on the videos!

    For the Transition to Impact video, I noticed that the path of your hands swinging through the arc seems to be consistently about 6 inches from your belt buckle, whether driver or iron. Is that distance something we should keep track of?

    I sometimes have a powerless arms swing in which the arc of the hands is farther out from my belt buckle (maybe from doing the “swing above the ground” drill, which I do every day), which seems to get me in trouble.


    • You are starting with your hands about 6″ from your belt buckle, this distance is there because you are starting with your arms fully extended and keeping them extended throughout the swing. They fully extend again just after contact. This is why that distance is the same from the body.
