  1. Hi Paul, I liked this roll over drill, I will try it, at the moment if I swing slowly I hook the ball every time, but if I speed the swing i put spin on the ball and slice it, what am I doing wrong? I will try this drill to see if it helps, best regardes

    • Jose,

      You are not good at it. As you increase you are rolling late. You need to roll it from the top. So keep doing it slow and gradually speed it up. Also, do it in practice swings at home. Then you can perfect it because there is no ball to hit.

  2. Paul,Good to précise this .
    Do you recommend to” roll over “with the Fairway Woods ,the Hybrids ,the irons ?
    I use d to think in the past That the movement of the right wrist was akin to the action of the wrist when throwing flat stones and have them ricocheting off the surface of a Lake. I didn’t slice the ball for That and the flight was straight .Do you believe it could be an alternative to the roll over ?
    Another question : I just saw a video from an another Instructor saying That to enable a better hip turn with the irons you should ” lift the toes of the left foot ” so as to turn on the left Heel and better square off the clubface .The Instructor said That JORDAN SPIETH was d oing this move .That’s not what I see on TV : JORDAN SPIETH ” rolls over his left foot when playing the Driver ( I don’t know what he does when hé Plays the irons .
    Is this tip of any use ?

    • Raymond,

      You can do it with any club. Driver is the hardest though. Get it with that and you should be able to do it with all clubs.

      If you have not been doing this you need to start. It is part of increasing your distance.

      I don’t think the skipping a stone is a replacement. You need the hands to cross over. I don’t think that will do it.

      I don’t see that tip is going to do anything. I want the forward foot flat at impact then rolling to the outside edge. Maybe it would help you shift the weight. If so, that would be a good thing.

  3. Paul,

    Please expand your explanation on the roll over drill when it comes to a hitting a consistent favorable area of the club face. The contact area of the club face will be more unpredictable with the roll over motion within the hitting zone? A further skill need?

    • Craig,

      The roll over drill is not about hitting it consistently in the center of the face. It gets you to fix the spin on your shots. I need you to do the drill and hook the ball. No matter how bad it feels off the clubface watch how it is spinning. This is working on the release and stopping your from putting slice spin on it. Once you can consistently hook it you have the roll over mastered so you switch to lower body to straighten it out.
