I noticed that the ball is near the toe of the driver, is that what I should do?
I’ve done that for many years after following George Knudson. You can do it if you want but really you should know his stuff before trying it.

Is the eye with which you look at the ball at address an important or unimportant factor?
Until now I paid no attention whatsoever to this issue :I know the ball is there where it should be in the stance and I don’t even look “on purpose ” at it .
I am told I am mistaken and that I should look at it like JACK NICKLAUS with the left eye ,the head slightly tilted to the right as he did (But I am right eye dominant!)

You need to look at the ball with your dominant eye. Changing eyes is very difficult because the ball looks weird when you look down at it. I see the ball as part of the landscape. In no way am I fixated on on it. I too am right eye dominant. I have no issues. I teach people who are left eye dominant all of the time. They usually do a reverse pivot it and it’s very difficult for me to get them to cure it. So whoever is telling you that has no clue about the golf swing. Keep doing what you are doing.
Paul ,This “logo ” tip would be more useful if you could use it on the fairway ,but you’re not allowed to lift the ball!(Unless there’s a local rule allowing to “place “the ball by poor weather )
From the fairway you just pick out a dimple on the ball.

The prodigal golfer returns.
Which model Volvik ball like do you like?
You’re back! Great to see you.
I am using the S4 white color. Love that ball. Just takes a little getting used to but it is by far the longest ball. I have hit some 360+.
I’m much better now, I’ve got it down to a 13 index but the other teaching method that I have been using has left me searching constantly for the bottom of the swing because it is all hands and arms. And I have found myself constantly trying to precisely time the bottom of my swing, yes I can shoot in the low 80s there but I can never get any better and certainly get much worse. And so I am back, because I know you and Pete will be able to help me. Give Pete my best and let him know I’ll be scheduling a Skype lesson soon.

I always shake my head when people leave. I have literally been through it all trying to get back my own swing after losing it many years ago so I know what is out there and how my method compares. It’s also a treat when this very same person comes back (which happens all of the time).
At a 13 you are getting there but the positions need to be more precise. I would think there is still some hitting going on because I don’t know if I have seen anyone yet with teh arms turned off to the degree I want them turned off.
I like how you are going to do a skype lesson with Pete. He will explain exactly what you need to work on. You need to perfect the grip, setup back swing and follow through (starting with the follow through first of course). That is it. You do that and you will look like a pro when you swing. If so, you then have the right fundamentals. How you know you are getting it is that people will literally start coming up to you asking you where you got that swing. I did a tip on this. If people are not asking you this then you do not look like a pro and you do not have the right fundamentals. So this is something to look forward to if it is not happening already.
Just stay focused and work on it exactly how he explains it. We get amazing results but the person has to follow what we are saying. This sounds logical but we care constantly having to remind people to work on it a specific way. Do the practice swings nightly at home. This is the fastest way you will learn it. Swing easy on the course trying to replicate the positions you are doing in the practice swings. Forget the ball and focus on positions. This is how pros work on it. If you want to get to a single digit you have to think and work on it like a single digit. It really is that simple.
Once again, glad you are back. You can do it.
Thanks so much Paul! I didn’t realize how much I missed the care and thoughtfulness you put into us, it’s truly appreciated.
I will continue to do the work. And I am just as happy to be back. I am positive with yours and Pete’s coaching and continued hard workI can get to single digit.
Best and peace,

Good stuff. You can do it. Getting to high single digits does take work but at a 13 hdcp you are close. Little more precise movement and you are there (with a decent short game). What takes even more work is getting to lower single digits. It can be done.
After just a week back I am hitting the ball so much better than I have been over the past month. As I mentioned above, the left arm focused swing I’ve been using for the past year , not without merit, ultimately leaves you as one of these people who become obsessed with the moment of impact, holding wrist positions , and in a Quixotic attempt to time the very precise bottom of the swing to a blade of grass. It literally becomes all you can think about. This is what drove me back to you. Is there a tip or two that will be a particular help to me with this specific problem? Keep in mind that just concentrating on going from point A to point B and tilting properly have given me huge improvement in just a few days.

You need to start at the beginning. Grip, setup and follow through first. If you are thinking about going to the follow through as soon as you start down you are NOT thinking about impact. Impact is halfway between point A and B. So if make the move to Point B you will be doing impact right. You cannot do my follow through if it is wrong at impact. So I am fixing impact by fixing the FT.
