    I had a breakthrough game and moment in trying to follow your philosophy update golf swing. As you have suggested in the rollover drill to cure the slice, you roll over early and you may put a little power into your arms until you get a better habit and then One can go with the powerless arms. So being left-handed but a right-handed golfer I took that same thought and brought a little more power to my right forearm to keep it closer to the left forearm just clearing my right hip much more easily as one would skip the rock you would keep your elbows in front of your hip talk to do on the op. cit. side for a left-handed person. This not only do you lofted my club a little bit more but also open the clubface to where I was no longer hooking the ball but followed through with more straight shots with a lower flight and getting fuller extension out pass the ball in the correct swing path versus a swing path it was more to the left. I shot a 43 on the front nine the best I’ve done in eight years. Any thoughts and videos and what I’ve said. Once again I’ve not had a lesson from a pro for some time but your videos have helped turn my game around as no other teacher has been able to do….thanks

      I like breakthroughs. They allow for understanding and to get you to the next level.

      Just keep this stuff simple. If you are slicing it the face is open toe the path. So … closed it. Get used to it. f you do you are no longer a slicer. Once you get it hooking you straighten it out with body rotation.

      Just see it clearly. Keep watching your ball and you will be able to do it all the time. Good job!

    Just a comment on the site in general. The tips I have seen have all been great. It is so nice to just be able to do a search and locate tips to address specific problem areas and then review them as much as is necessary to get them to sink in.
    It is especially nice to finally be able to understand the causes (and solutions) to a particular problem while playing. Some days, the body just doesn’t work as well as it should and you just have to stick with the proper fix until it does, but it is so nice not to be trying to make incorrect changes that just end up making matters worse. Joining this site has been the best investment I have ever made in this sport. All the club changes in the world don’t do anything for a faulty swing.

    • Gary,

      Glad you like the site. It is only going to get better with the new Dashboard that we will be releasing.

      Yes, not guessing is a good thing. I feel everyone should know how to fix their own swing. This is huge information to have.

      Thanks for the support.

    Paul,keeping the spine tllted so your eyes stay on an a angle is fine ,but how do you manage that when at the same time you push up from the ground up with both left and right leg to get more power ?
    Also ,do you swivel the head with the swing or keep the head down until the ball is far away?

      Who is pushing up with legs? Not me. I am using the legs to turn not to push up. You Need to stop listening to long drivers etc. who are telling you to do this. I know this is out there. You do this and you will be topping it. You keep your head watching the ball until the back arm is three quarters through.

    Hi Paul, do you know of any software for use on a Windows 10 PC for analyzing your swing positions? Have v1 Golf on my Android phone but prefer the larger PC monitor. Ideal would be with markup and side by side but most important is easy to pause the frame. Of course free is always great but a reasonable price is certainly fair if it helps my game. Thank you.

      I use Coach’s Eye. they have an app and desktop software. Simple to use and affordable. $20 for the desktop version. Give it a try.

    PAUL, is this not “staying in the shot” or holding your posture through the shot? Thanks .

      You could say that. You could say moving out of it too. All of this is lifting and raising. Like I said in the tip though, most amateurs are practicing raising while pros are practicing previewing the target on an angle.

    I appreciate the tip. I may have been practicing coming out the shot as you mention, but try as I will, I continue to come out to the shot at times, hit the ball thin , or fat behind the ball, or sometimes, off the heel of the club. The tip on watching the blur to keep my head down is a difficult process for me because I tend to follow the club with my eyes in order to see the blur. I have tried listening for the click before looking. At one time I used an older tip (from Jack Nicklaus) where I would only allow the right shoulder contact with my chin to let me know when to look. Is the shoulder touch the chin a good or bad idea? It seems more practical for me.

      So stop hitting hard. Slow down to 50%. Get good at swinging at this pace. Then increase leg driver for more power. Yes the shoulder chin is good too. You need to get to the root of the problem. You are hitting too hard. The hard you hit the more you will look and the more your forearms will contract so slow down. Work on full extension of your arms past impact and into the through swing so you get rid of any chicken wing.

      Once you are good at it speed up leg drive for more power. You need to change the power source so you are not hitting with arms. This takes some getting used to.
