    Hi Paul. i’m a Senior (800 who has golfed for 5 years because my wife loves i-and I can’t play hockey any more (sorry). I have followed you for long enough to totally be a believer. Actually, my Senior friends also have a common habit of stepping their right foot “out” to past the tee. My issue may be that my back can impede the full coil, and I definitely DO NOT swing the club fully as in this video. I also move my body up, down, back, to the sky to compensate. Thanks for this video! I enjoy the concept of hittlhg without a ball. The initial coil and driving the legs are tough for me to relax and do. Anyway, thanks!! Cheers, Greg Smith [email protected]

      Hello Greg, glad you are doing well. Hockey is tough.

      As we get older we get tighter. This can hamper the backswing coil. The problem is that people can coil so little they have a swing with no power plus it is usually way too short in the backswing. This is what causes people to lift up to get a feeling of power but once you lift you need to come back down which gets the person hitting at the ball with the arms.

      So for seniors I want them to lift the left heel going back. This will allow the hips to turn more and get the back to the target in the backswing. The closer to 90 degrees the better. Then of course you couple this with hinging the wrists and you are in a good position to generate power in the downswing.

      I have been having people who have had trouble coiling in the backswing do the heel up and down method to develop a better backswing. Seems to really work well. So give this a try and see how it works for you:
