    Paul – Great tips, thanks. I notice no golf glove, should I try that? Also, i have been working on more wrist action in the downswing, do you have a tip video on getting the wrists more involved?

    Great Video– I also watch the hip rotation from ground level, was very helpful. There is no doubt that the turning of the hips ahead of the shoulders and hands creates tremendous club speed at impact {without even trying}. I was at the range yesterday and purposely tried to overdue this move and I have Never hit a ball harder- Any prior “arm-powered” swing will feel this !!! I have just one question.. in this process when trying to turn that lower body first I have the tendency to have early extension {stand up too straight} I saw how u keep your rear-end someone back {hips steady} Any thoughts.. tips ? Thanks !!!

    Hi Paul.
    Just a quick one: Into the follow through when you finnish off on the left leg, should the foot be planted flat down or do you lean towards the left side of the foot (outside)?

      I am rolling to the outside edge of this foot after impact.

      I did a tip on it here:

        Thanks πŸ™‚
        Did some practice the other day and my thought was “load the weight on the right instep” and once loaded I was thinking and feeling the weight shift and what my legs were doing throughout the swing. Replacing the thoughts and thinking about legs there is simply no time to think about the ball cause it is already hit πŸ™‚

          Exactly. If you are not thinking about loading and using the legs and hips when are you ever going to use them. Stick with these thoughts. You will start to see amazing things happen.

  4. Paul, my problem is not staying down through impact. At times I feel I am standing upright as soon as I hit the ball causing the ball to go right and short. I’m ending up in the proper follow through. Any tips on staying down and not coming out of the shot. My game has greatly improve in all aspects after following your instructions except this. This also causes thin shots.

    Great point. Seems simply to compete the balance of the swing by thinking of the feel the soft ending shaft behind head.
    For me Setup, Stabilizing belt Buckle,
    Slowly coiling shoulders onto back foot arch,
    and letting club-head momentum to hinge the wrists for feeling Lat.Dorsi stretch
    – then thinking of behind head feel before instep pushes back thigh to front thigh allows my behind the head finish on balance and in control.

    Great, great tip! Brings the swing together.
    Sorry if I missed it before. Thanks again..

      Great thoughts. This meshes with tonight’s tip. Sounds like you are on the right track.

    I have no problem finishing in the follow through position with my woods, but find I don’t reach the touch the head position with my irons – especially the short irons. I still manage the touch the legs position but my follow through swing is too short.My main thought is to fully touch the legs, which seems to work for me as a key thought.
    Is this a common problem?

      I constantly have people not doing the positions. Just take the club and wrap it around to the back of your head. Do this manually and even if the ball lands still touch your head. Whatever it takes. As you keep doing it it will become important. If you never do it when do you do it? Also, you should be doing this nightly in a mirror or window. No ball means no hitting so you can focus on doing the position. In your mind you swing is not over until the club touches your head. So make it touch not matter what it takes.

      How Far Around Should You Swing?:

    I start with both knees flexed and I am paying attention now to keep the right leg flexed on the takeaway, but when I transfer weight onto the left leg the leg must straighten at some point. .( I am also paying close attention to keeping the elbows no too far apart and keep them relaxed.) During some swings when I topped the ball I sensed that I may be straightening the left leg too soon and this causes the body to lift up a little and the club travels to the ball a tad too high.
    I am turning my body and have got more swing and less “hit” in my shots now. Topping often happens when first switching from practising a fairway wood to a short iron.
    At impact should the left leg still be flexed? (for a right handed player)
