    This is a terrific series. Why I think it’s so helpful is that, first, you cover the full swing in a short series of presentations. Students don’t have to jump from one section of your full swing gallery to another, trying to select which tip might be the most helpful. You make essentially all the points you cover in The Body Swing (but not as in depth, of course) in roughly two hours of video. Second, the comparisons with student swings really drive home what you’re saying about correct technique. In your other tips, you often illustrate incorrect technique (such as swinging over the top), but it comes across so much more clearly to me when I see what you’re doing side by side with a student’s incorrect execution. Really an instructive series. Good on ya, mate.

      Thanks. I may do some more the future. Interesting to see the different moves people make. Becomes pretty clear why people are not consistent.

  2. Hi Paul, I’m a right handed and I feel my right knee turn out a little in the back swing, is this ok or how can i stop that?

      Not sure what you mean. You need to be in a tall set up. Then your shoulders would turn back on a flatter plane going back as you coil. If the right shoulder goes up that is not good. Just take it to the top. At the top you should not see your toes. If you don’t then you should be okay. Just hoping it’s not a weird move you are making going back. You might want to do a swing analysis with my assistant to have him check it. More info is here:

    I may have asked this before but one of my partners has a reverse “C” swing with his follow through straight down his back. As a senior he still hits it a fair distance and remains a good player. Why is this no longer a preferred method, particularly as many players of yesteryear swung this way and even Colin Montgomerie continues to do so today?

      It is not preferred because it hurts your lower back (just ask Jack Nicklaus and Johnny Miller how their backs are feeling these days).

      The swing is more rotational now. Back in the day they taught a bigger shift. Now we understand the swing better we teach a coiling and uncoiling. This is more of a circular motion. I used to do that very swing and I would literally blow it 90 yards right of target. So in no way do I ever teach this action. I want people hitting it straight and on line. The amount of lateral I want is the distance between the feet.

    I enjoy this comparison series as well. I like to go back-and-forth through these and really analyze the different faults with you and compare to your consistent swing.
    A to B has really been helpful to be more fluid in my swing. Also taking the ball out of the equation with this winter practice has helped a lot

      Glad you liked them. I may do more in the fall or winter when it’s tough to get out to shoot tips.

  5. Hi Paul,
    Definitely the most important position. I have been working on this position for the last 10 days and I played great today. I believe that mastering this solves at least 70 % of our problems. Consistency is so important in this game!
    Take care,

    • Raoul,

      Exactly. I keep telling everyone this and they just keep whacking golf balls. Very frustrating. Glad you are focusing on it. This is point B to your swing.
