    Great video. It’s interesting to see what a huge difference it made with that longer backswing and that pulling with the arms as he starts down.

      That long swing is a killer for most people. They are looking for power going back. I am setting it and looking for power coming down. Huge difference.

    I seem to be hitting my ball to the right side of the course, especially my driver. How can I correct that?

    great tip and video. could explain the last last blue line showing the direction the hands should take. You have the line more slanted in towards the head instead of more backwards in the direction you take from 3/4 to full? I understand that you should keep your hands in back of this line to make sure your are not going over the top, but the slant of the line looks off to me. Please explain. thanks. again great video– shows the importance also of not twisting the back foot and keeping the knee bent!

      I drew the line in no particular position. It was to show where the hand came down. Did it come down where it went up or ahead of where it went up. If ahead it is over the top. So you can draw a vertical line too if you want. It doesn’t matter. Just keep an eye on where they are coming down.

    Hi Paul
    I really like these swing analysis. It shows how you may think you are doing all the positions correct but you mat not be doing it quite right. Then you repeat over and over the wrong move therefor ingraining it.

    Paul, these two videos on swing analysis are the best you have done. They really show the importance of keeping the right knee bent, not raising the right heel too early, bring the hands down in back of the line, and much more. I have been following your instruction for years and neglected to see the importance of some of these corrections. best regards, Richard
