  1. Paul ,There seems to be a glitch in this video :I can’t activate the video neither on IGNITION GOLF nor on the DASHBPARD

    • Raynmond,

      There is no glitch in the video. You are the only person saying this. If it is not working please email our admin email address. Just go to contact us at the top of any page.

  2. Another very instructive set of the “What not to do ” in your backswing and “What to do ” when looking at yours,Paul!
    Very helpful indeed!
    I looked closely at your right foot ,which is well planted in the ground at the top of the backswing .I don’t know what sensation you have at that point.I found that “feeling ” my weight on the right heel and not only on the right instep ,and the back completely opposite the target helps me a lot and gives me much more power in the throughwing .
    Did you Watch RICKY FOWLER at the PALM SPRING GARDENS Open :he starts his downswing with his arms only ,there’s no push nor rotation from the hips (JACK NiCKLAUS as a TV commentator saw that also) .
    And what to say about the shorter Driver shafts of JIMMY WALKER and RICKY FOWLER ,both students of BURCH HARMON – (43,5 inches ,one inch shorter )-Is this to be advocated :more precision perhaps but less clubhead speed ,though RICKY FOWLER shot a drive of 305 yards while I was watching .

    • Raymond,

      I feel the weight load into my back instep as I hit the top. This is crystal clear to me. I need this weight loaded so I can use it to hit my shots.

      These players are not purely using arms. If so, they would not hit it anywhere near where they do. You can see their hips way open at impact. If it was just arms their hips would be facing the ball as the hit the ball (which no tour player does).

      There are plenty of tour players using their arms. Any fast swing you see is body and arms. The are tour players who it it long and have an amazing short game so they can get the ball in the hole. I want my students to hit it long and straight. This requires you to turn the arms off.
