You did not explain why pulling with right hand is wrong. Generally pulling something is always easier and straighter than pushing (any cart for example)
Why are all tips screens larger in height than the computer screen?
I sure did. I said it takes it too far to the inside. This would be your computer. You are the first person who has ever said this. Check the resolution on your computer. If you don’t know how to do this go to youtube and someone will have a video how to do it.

Paul, For the take away, I think of a cable attached to my rt. shoulder. The pull on the cable causes the full tern, this eliminates tension, passive, also it prevents swaying. A very good thought for me.
Each person is different this is why I give people choices. This is a good thought. I like imagery. If this works I really don’t have a problem with it.
I am working on shortening my backswing to proper length- this is creating issues with powerless arms and loose wrists. For some reason the shorter swing feels very ‘tight’ and arm-y. Is this a tempo issue? When I go back to my long backswing (John Daly style over the line) I can get loose again, but I know this is inconsistent and poor technique.

The tigher feeling shortening would be you trying to manually set the club to a shorter backswing length. This could be tightening your arms. Just base the backswing length on your coil. Once tightly coiled you are at the top. So let your body rotation tell you when you a the top. Give this a try. Tonight’s tip would be beneficial for you.

Hi Paul…I just went to a club fitting and saw my swing on video. I was quite disappointed in what I saw on the video. What I saw was a very handsy take away with mostly my hands and wrists making the initial movement, resulting in a very small shoulder turn. I’ve tried pushing the left hand palm in practice and that helps get to parrallel, but once I get past being the back knee, the arms bend and shoulder rotation for the most part stops well before 90. At 71 I recognize a tightness in my back that encourages taking over by the arms. I’m willing to try to address by increased flexibility exercising. My question is what bigger muscles either in your shoulders or back or elsewhere do you recommend focusing on and do you use to help create width and a bigger shoulder turn, effectively taking the hands out of the process of getting to the top. Thanks Paul.
ps: Your favorite drill has really helped my iron play and the feeling of body first….in spite of my lousy take.
A lot of people don’t like what they see in video. They think they are doing one thing when really they are doing something else.
In your case it is just a lazy backswing move. You need to turn off the arms at the start and work it back with the shoulders. This is a start which will stop the arms from pulling it back. If you pull it back the club has move way more than the rotation of the body told it to.
I just did a tip on this here:

So, make sure you do my taller setup as opposed to being bent over too much. Next, let the arms just hang and feel your shoulders taking it back. Start with this as this may fix it. Then look at the shoulder rotation. You can increase it here:
