Great tip Paul and the sound is not too bad. My question is wether it is possible to over-do the firing of the hips and thus get your hands and club stuck behind on the follow through. I have heard this described as a better player’s problem but would like to know if you have encountered this. Thanks.

Yes, it is possible to drive the hips too hard. I did tips on it here:

Paul, is it important to ensure the shaft of the club dissects your right forearm on the way down just before releasing the club? Would this indicate the correct path and enough lag? (When videoing swings from directly behind).
Yes, you want the club flattening in the downswing. This should be occurring due to turning your body first and having powerless arms. This way the mass (club) would move towards 90 degrees to the axis (body) in the downswing.

Why are there several pros such as this past weeks winner Patrick Reed keeping their right foot on the ground through impact?
Because they are trying anything and everything or they are sliding laterally. I really do not like this new swing. They think this is the magical move. How many of the best players of all time kept this foo flat at impact? I can’t even think of one.
You can keep the foot flat if you make sure the hips have rotated upwards of 45 degrees at impact. This does hurt the back though and causes a reverse C in the follow through. Why not let the hips pull the heel off the ground.
Keep in mind we already have the best swing of all time. Tiger in 2001-2003. At this time he was beating the best players in the world by 3 to 13 shots. If we already have the best swing why would you want to do something else?
Paul, this a tip I have been waiting for since I think I’m having problems starting my hip turn at the top of my backswing. I’ll add your drills to my homework routine and hopefully I will be comfortable with the move whenever I get back outside and to a golf course. I love your video tips , but there is only so much an amateur can work on at one time. My indoor swing tempo has definately slowed dow and I continue to try and make my arms powerless.Thanks
If you are getting overloaded you are not using this site properly. You need to work on 1 or two things. Forget the daily tips. They are added to the archive every day. When you get to that topic watch them then. Or use the tips in conjunction with my Swing Machine Golf products. I have said this in the past.
I did another tip on this a while ago. Maybe there is more info that you can learn.
Thanks Paul : )
Paul unquestionably the best tip you have ever done. I have watched so many different nuances of the downswing but you have nailed it in a simple and direct way.
Thank you and good job!
Glad you liked it. Thanks.

I did write a WARNING underneath the tip about the sound.

Hi Paul, I recently renewed my membership to Ignition Golf and I am glad I did. It is great to actually know exactly what to work on, and I am more confident and my shots are improving. Keep up the great work!

Paul, as I start the downswing my arms have dropped to waist high with the club shaft parallel with the butt pointing towards the target. As I complete the follow through the ball flys true to the target. The problem I have Is distance. Mt question is, could I gain distance by not dropping my arms so quickly and keep them shoulder high at the beginning of the downswing? I’m guessing that would increase torque and club head speed. Your thoughts?

If you want to have the feeling of letting your arms hesitate at the top of the backswing for a moment then this is a great way to get more power. You want your hips to be pulling the arms down. Check out this tip:

Separation is a great tip. Thanks.
Sorry but can’t make your fall golf lessons in Vegas. COVID 19 keeps me in Canada. No flying south. Sorry.
