    Paul, thanks for getting to the basics, we seem to want results to quickly.

      I’ve been working on my swing. Basically a beginner. I really have just been working on the swing, your tips, practice, NOT the results. It is not easy but I think I get it. And suddenly I started connecting better:-)
      Great tip; made me laugh but more importantly, helps me stick with it.

        Being a beginner you do not have these bad habits. Just follow along and you will get a great swing in no time.

      Exactly. People need to be doing it right. Glad you get it.

    It seems like I hit my knee on the follow thru, but my hip turn is not complete. I seems to stop at about 75% hip turn. However at this point my knees are hitting each other. Any drill to be sure I complete the hip turn 100%?

      Sounds like the hips are moving laterally not circular. You are tucking the back knee under the other knee. This is the only way this could happen.

      If you have thrown a ball you have done this move. It is the same move. Follow the tips below to get it.

    ps. Thanks for reviewing these fundamentals. I am one of the bad guys. I am very focused when I get to the range to do these drills. I am there about ten minutes and then concentrate on hitting the ball.

      You need to do the positions. Glad you see it and are now willing to do it. It will pay off in the future.

    This was outstanding, and yes I’m a bad guy. But starting in the am will do it your way, no matter how long it takes to do it right! Thanks for the jump start.

      It was kind of quiet out there when I first released the tip so I thought everyone was hiding. Glad people liked the tips and are now seeing that it actually takes a little work to get a great swing. Once they get it, this game becomes a lot more fun.

    Thought I was at school !!!! Thanks Paul.

      I feel like I am working with 5 years olds that are not listening some times so your comment is right on. I’ve just to keep saying it. Eventually, everyone will get it.

    I was busting up laughing and was glad to see that even you broke into laughter. Great replication of the student during your tips and unfortunately it all makes great sense. I hope everyone that sees this says “YES YES YES I will do it this way so that I can start playing better golf down the road.” Just to reinforce what you have provided, I want to tell people that the method Paul teaches does work but only if you accept the responsibility to work at developing your swing and hitting the positions that Paul details. Paul has made a great difference in my swing and in my golf game. He can do the same for you!

      I bet you were. You know what I go through. Good to hear from you again. Thanks for the promo.

    Most laughs of any tip that I can remember, Paul. Good way to start the day! I’m looking forward to the NYC weather warming up just a little more so that I can get out to the range. Thanks again.

    I agree with Pat. This is your funniest video yet Paul. Your frustration is obvious but well placed. Don’t give up on us!!

      Thanks. Glad liked it. I was wondering if I should post this one or not. Glad I did.

    Paul, Great Tip, and funny too. I have been a hands and arms ball striker for a long time. I am dedicating this new golf season to learn your swing fundamentals. I live outside of Chicago so I have been practicing in our local Golf domes. I started using your swing tips and have noticed a new “effortless” swing slowly developing. As the weeks have gone and by improving my swing I noticed that I have slowly started to watch my golf ball shot instead of sticking to the fundamentals that you mention in todays video tip. Thank you for this tip today. I now will concentrate more on what is going on in front of me and not worry if I hit that perfect shot or not. It’s easy to drift back into old habits only because you feel that you’re a better ball striker. But, you have opened up my eyes today and I will again try my best to practice and concentrate on the important golf fundamentals like the Grip, Stance and Posture, Coiling and Uncoiling and of course the proper Follow Through.

      Glad I caught you before you totally lost it. Stick to the swing. Know the positions like the back of your hand and always re-enforce them. If you do you won’t lose it and will keep progressing.

    All good teachers, on occasion ,stop coddling their students and need to “beat on them” …….well done!

      It is just mind boggling to me that people do not do the moves. If I went for a lesson I would be a sponge asking if I was doing the move exactly right or not. Once I new that I could take it home with me and work on it. I guess people need to be educated a little more on the reality of learning a great swing.

    Hey Paul, this one made me laugh out loud a few times, and has to be one of your top 2-3 tips!

  12. Paul,

    Thanks for that. I’m one of your overthinkers and underlisteners. Two follow thru position questions.

    First, what does it mean if you finish parallel to the ears but on the shoulders vs level with the ears?

    Second, can I keep my head and eyes in the setup position longer? It helps me avoid moving laterally.

    • Robert,

      Your wrists are most likely loose enough if the shaft is on the back of the neck. It is a little low because you are not extending the club through and past impact fully. You need to widen the arc. If you do the club will come around and be a little higher between the ears.


      Wide Arc:

      DRILL: Another Way To Widen The Arc:

      From this more extended position allow the body to keep turning and wrists to release and you should see it a little higher on the back of the head.

      Glad you are about this position. I is one of the most important things you can do for power and contact.
