    Thank you for the tip. I have struggled with push fades. Now finally, an instructor explains to me
    -in simple terms- why that happens and how to correct it.
    I also struggle with power, and hopefully this tip will improve both of my faults.
    Thanks Paul.

    Great tip, Paul. Yesterday beginning on 14, made concerted effort to “finish high” – which, I note you’re doing in this tip and it obviously assists in “touching the head” for a full and complete uncoil. Results on last 5 holes was amazingly effortless, longer than normal and straight…. Look forward to putting it in play beginning on hole 1!!

      Glad you tried it and saw the results. I keep telling everyone the follow through is the most important position in the swing. Hitting the ball is very exciting and distracting though. You need to make the follow through Point B more important than impact. Once you do that you will swing right through it and you can be loose as you do so. Now, keep doing it.

    Paul, nice new driver. I got myself an M4 and I think it’s brilliant. Great tip as well.

      I just got a new shaft. The head is the same. My other one came loose.

      Yes, the new M4 is a great driver. I love how confident you are sounding. This is a big part of choosing a driver.

      I really like them which is why I haen’t changed.

  4. Every one of these tips seem to have my name written on them. I recently watched one of your pitching videos (Hinge and Turn) as am dead serious on improving my short game. There, as well, you advocate turning the belt buckle/speeding up rotation to gain distance in pitching. That’s what I love about the Body Swing. Its core philosophy (body rotation) transcends pretty much all situations we encounter. I’d suggest members view “How to Pitch the Ball”, try the speeding up sequence using the belt buckle thought and then apply that feeling to a full-swing driver.

    Excellent tip Paul. I find when I focus on finishing the swing with my belt buckle facing left of the target I get so much more distance and hit it straighter keep up the good work I look forward to your tips every day

      Very good. I kept seeing a lot of people doing this so I had to do the tip. Keep getting right through it into the future.

  6. Great tip. Focusing on the belt buckle instead of the knees helps for better use of the core muscles, clearing of the hips and better sequencing of the lower and upper body together.

      Glad you liked it. Yes, most people like the belt buckle as the trigger. Seems easier.

  7. Excellent lesson ,Paul !You just had to look at the top players at the USPGA these last days to have confirmation of what you teach .As for the tightness in the hips you mention ,just follow the lessons of JEREMY on your site to loosen them up .
    Even for the abreviated shots where the pro’s hold the club for precision approach shots to the green ,they fully turn the hips as you show

      Glad you liked it. Yes, they are definitely doing the positions. Some people are a little tight when they do it a first but yes, Jeremy’s tips can loosen them up in no time. So important you get all the way through.

    Paul, good tip. I haven’t tried it yet but it makes a lot of sense to me

    Hello Mr. Wilson,

    Does this concept apply to the short and medium pitch shot?

    Thank you.
