Is the TaylorMade M-1 Driver the “best thing ever” or what? Hope to be in Vegas in April.

I played the other day. I started off ok but out of the blue I came up with a hard pull hook which I seemed to be able to stop by by pausing at the top of my swing before starting down. It felt weird but it worked.
I haven’t seen you do a tip on how long you wait at the top before starting down. I get anxious in my swing at times and in trying to create more speed momentum, I don’t get the club all the way back before starting back down and don’t get the club set and probably come over the top. The comment I hear most times from everyone is visually I appear to be “jumping at the ball” instead of swinging the club smoothly and on balance.
The question as it relates to the swing path is do you think this is a valid correction or something you want to practice, pausing at the top to collect, and then start down.
Hard pull hook is you hitting it with your arms. The pausing at the top took your arms out of the swing so you started to use your body to hit the ball. You cannot pause if your arms are swinging really hard at it.

You are not really pausing at the top you are changing direction. The clubhead would be the last thing to get to 0 mph. If you started the body first in the downswing, it would be the last thing to start moving so it appears to pause.

PS. I am “thinking swing with my body” but I still get the same result..frustrating

Paul I understand “TheClubFix”is no longer with RG why don’t yopuget them back with you?
I met with Bronson about getting together. Still waiting to hear back. This was months ago. He was totally into doing something.
Very fine And useful lesson,Paul.An exercise I practise regularly to oblige me to come into the downswing from the inside ,is to swing with a slight slope in front OF me. As if it was an uphill lie .It obliges you to flatten your swing .
Another exercise to force you to rotate on the front leg is to swing up a slight slope OF an uphill lie ,you have to push hard off the back foot to get through the ball And into the front leg.

That thought would work just fine. I did this tip about it here:
