    You have published and authored hundreds of golf tip. I Have noticed
    several of your members comment and maybe a bit frustrated by the
    amount of tips that you publish. And how to follow all theses tips that
    can be overwhelming and confusing.

    I have been following your technique for many years . In addition to
    the basic fundamental issue of powerless arms and touching the knees
    there has been a wealth of tips / techniques and ideas. I do not believe
    they are meant to apply specifically and literally to every person and
    swing. I believed they are keys to help the golfer address an issue that
    faces them.

    For me the most significant tips were:

    – How to get out of the sand…( a big one)
    – Chip and pitch shots…. ( 70% of my shots are within about 10 yards
    from the green , short, left, right or long.)
    – And , this amazingly made a huge different for me ….Say Yes then Swing.

    It seems like every thing fell in place once I made sure I transferred
    the weight to the trailing foot and pushed off with it to transfer
    weight and touch the knees / turn the hips / straighten the front leg .

    Basically this tip has taken away any focus I had from the hands, club,
    arms, turn, etc., and focused on this simple drill / tip. I am hitting
    my longest drives but more importantly my STRAIGHTEST shots.

    I began to wonder why and tried to break it down … which was fruitless.
    So now I only focus on this ….Say Yes Then Swing. And enjoying what
    this tip did for me.

    So for all those that are concerned about the so many and good tips and
    swing thoughts , just embrace what works for you and enjoy the ride / game. And when it gets ugly out there , and it will, go back and review what is meaningful for you.

    Hey Paul
    I’ve noticed that my left elbow ( leftie ) tucks right into my body/ribs during the downswing
    Is this meant to happen?
    Many thanks

      This should not be happening. I just did a couple of swings and in no way am I doing this. The only way I could do it is if I chicken winged it. I would check this immediately. We do swing analysis. This would be a good time to get one.

    In this set up position, will I have my weight on my toes?
