  1. Paul this “just say yes series” has been a great reminder and a winner for me. It has been 8 or 9 years that I have been following your instruction. I felt in the beginning you were the one golf instructor who I could understand and made sense. I would have to say as I was a slow learner, but I have stuck with you and only you. I probably should have worked more on your drills rather than going out and playing to the best of my arm and hand hitting ability.

    For the past month or so I have been swinging the club more with powerless arms. Yes, it is all about rotation and swinging not just “hit that little white ball”. I took up the game at age 60. Now at 74 I am playing in the low to mid 80’s consistently on my home course. Well today was my graduation day. I shot 76. I owe it all to your teaching, DVDs, books, and daily tips. Thank you. I do not know why it took me so long to make the transition from hitting to swinging. Just like the orthopedic surgeon who gave me a new knee 4 years ago and changed my lifestyle, you get all the credit for my golfing success.

    One of my playing foursome today said to me after 4 or 5 holes, “You have been taking lessons”. To which I replied, “the golf instructor I have been following for 8 or 9 years and his daily online website.”

    • Peter,

      That’s great news. I love hearing it. Maybe you are set for a breakthough. You have to be careful at this point. The next time out you will feel invincible. If so, it will be a disaster. You need to warm up hitting on 25 balls or so not even looking at where they go. You start out swinging nice and easy hitting fairways and greens. No distance thoughts. If you hit a ball shot you don’t care. These bad shots are part of the game.

      Once you break 80 numerous times this will become the norm. Until then, it may be a little shaky.

      Thank you so much for your kind words about my teaching and the promo to others. I truly appreciate it.

      Keep us posted on your progress.

      • My Wednesday round was of the same caliber, but I was not overly surprised. My tempo was off and was getting a little quick at times. When I say quick, I mean I did not have the same separation of my hips and arms during the down swing, and it all started with the take-a-way which was too fast. When I reminded myself to slow down and take it back with my shoulder turn, hinge my wrists, the tempo was better and so was the swing, the contact, and the resulting shot.

        I am on the road now for short trip, and I will be playing different courses. This will be a good test of my progress.

        • Peter,

          That’s great. Always interesting to see how you do on other courses. This is the true test. Do well.

    I am hitting the ball straighter than ever. And have gradually increased my swing speed. I am right handed and am noticing a little soreness on the inside of my right knee. Wondering if this is common with getting use to touching the knees or putting too much pressure on the heel instep?
    Could be just me. I do pilates every morning so I think I am stretching enough.
    Thanks again for improving my game.

    • Jim,

      This is not common. I would think you are either doing it wrong or going way too hard. Please send us a video of you swing from the front and down the line so we can check it.
