    Thanks Jeremy, a really great drill to correct a big problem of mine. The explanation of trailing hand dominating and trying to hit the ball explains the “flip” in a way that hit home with me. Nice and timely with Paul’s previous tip.

    I need some good exercises for my legs. Ive had ACL repair and both meniscus torn in left knee

    • Sorry to hear about your knee issues. Go to the ‘FLEXIBILITY’ tab above and check out all the Glute, Balance, and Lower Body exercises we’ve done so far. We’ve done some great low-impact exercises that would be great for you to put into your leg program. The ACL is a stabilizing ligament – concentrate on balance and stabilization exercises for this. The meniscus will tend to respond to low-impact leg strengthening. Stay away from high-impact exercises like jumping and deep knee bends. Stay tuned for more!

    Thanks, Jeremy. Flipping has been a problem particularly when chipping. This exercise is an effective way to create the right habits.

    Hi Jeremy:
    I’ve been following your tips for about 6 months now and this is a great visual and sensual tip for me while looking in a mirror. I tried this “feeling” on the course yesterday and it definitely was beneficial to my swing.

  10. This works so well with powerless arms dragging hula hands BY the wrists!

  11. Nice actual visualization of what we should feel. That’s really helpful.

  12. Hi Jeremy,
    Worked this during the round and after the round hitting just a couple of balls. Some nice shift in the shape of my ball flight/ the release of the club. I’d like to understand more about why this is happening…is it partly turning off small muscles in the hands going back so you are coiling rather than pulling (?) and not sure what to think about the follow thru. Probably should not think! but do the feeling. Thanks for the tip. I remember it from the posting a few years ago but had not tried it.

    Definitely a helpful tip as I have noticed a lot of “coming up short” when flipping goes high but not long.
