Keep on doing your practice swings so you are ready to do once your season starts.
Hi Paul. Balance has always been a problem for me, but I’ve noticed since practicing your technique, I almost always fall forward if somewhat out of balance. This would seem to be an improvement since Gary Pkayer often stepped forward at the end of his swing. Would you agree?
You really need to stick that ending. I would be swinging slower and holding it when you are done so you can get used to it. Although falling forward is better I prefer you to do the exact same thing every time.

I have never posted or sent a video in but you have been the best help ever!! Been a member about a year started doing what you said in this drill last year I am 60 years old and hitting as far as I ever did. Driver 260+ 7 iron 165 with less effort. Thanks for all the tips everyday in my inbox best investment in my golf game ever.
That’s great that you are doing well. I love hearing it.
Thank you for your feedback and kind words. I really appreciate it.
Keep up the good work.
Thank you for telling us not to practice in bare feet (or just socks.) I did that a few times last winter and ended up going to my podiatrist and having my back (right) foot taped and having to ice it. Fortunately, the inflammation went away pretty quickly. I hadn’t realized at first that barefoot practice swings were the cause.
I don’t recall your mentioning this before so this will be very helpful to a lot of people.
I see people doing this at the range and cringe. There are actually golf shoe companies who make sandal golf shoes. They should know better.
Stick to shoes from now on.
To be clear, Paul, I only did it in my living room. Never at the range. Sam Snead I am not.
Paul: I did not believe in karma until now. I have been watching your videos on youtube for the past few months and my swing has been improving. I thought I should become a member as a thank you for my steady improvement. And guess what? I went to the range today, hit a few balls and then I hit one with effortless arms. Eureka! If I wasn’t converted before I am now. 50 effortless balls later and my driver is traveling 50 yards further. A huge thank you.
That’s great news. I love that aha moment. This is what I had when I stopped hitting. Greatest feeling in the world. Problem is it reminds you of how many years you wasted doing it wrong. Ouch. Stick to this effortless feeling. It is exciting to hit great shots with a feeling of nothing. You need to watch this:
You Will Top It: https://ignitiongolf.com/you-will-top-it/
This is the key for me to almost the whole swing. Been working on this for a number of weeks and have consistently hit the ball straight and solidly.
Only slight thing I find is that I’ve hit a few drives higher than normal. Not skying just a little higher. In a cold Scottish March wind it knocks the distance back a bit. Any thoughts?
I wish that I had run into you 30 or 40 years ago. Keep up the excellent work.
Glad you are doing well. Thank you for the kind words. I really appreciate it.

Also, check your shaft/cluhead with a professional club fitter.
If those don’t work then you need to start hooking it for a little while then straightening it back out. By hooking it you will be de-lofting your driver. This will lower the flight but it will be going left. You then add body rotation to straighten it out.

Glad ,Paul ,you keep insisting on lower body action :reinforcing the muscles of the lower body (Legs primarily )is essential to hitting the ball further ,together as enabling the whole body to turn faster, a point often overlooked by most golf teachers :JACK NICKLAUS had very strong legs he used for good purpose,he was a long hitter for his time .I don’t quite agree with not training barefeet ,the great SAM SNEAD would go on the golf course bare footed and play holes this way :there’s a story he was greeted when coming back at the the very posh club house (I don’t remember the club ,very exclusive in any case ) by the other great champion of the time ,GENE SARAZEN ,who thorougly scolded him for his “ungentleman like manners : ” “you’re making a fool of yourself .Where do you think you are “he told him!
As you read, fellow member Steven hurt his toe swinging in bare feet. Not a good idea.
