    What a huge difference in his swing! I enjoy these videos very much. I love to see other swings and analyze what’s going on. Very interesting. I imagine he was hitting his irons at least one club further than he was.

    • Glenn,

      We got on a nice roll and he was hitting it great. We moved up to the new driver and he was hitting it great then he went back to his driver and started hitting it too hard and lost it for a while. Arms are a killer. Anytime anyone loses it then need to immediately slow down to 50% and build it back up.

    Hi Paul,

    Great tip! It appears that your right elbow drops down to your hip and then you fire the lower body with the right foot off the ground and knee move. Is it okay to use this swing thought to improve my timing as my error is often a push to the right, due to hips too far ahead of arms. It may also help me not to intiate the downswing with my arms and maintain the hinge/lag. It feels that I could consistently get my elbow to that position while keeping powerless arms.

  3. Paul,

    This is a great video. It will allow us to take videos of our swings and do the same type of comparative analysis you did on yours and look for other subtle aspects of the swing that we need to “tidy up” as you say. It also points out the value of doing down-the-line videos. I’ve been missing that aspect of analysis of my own swings.

    When warmer weather comes my way and I can get some good videos, I plan on taking you up on your offer to do an analysis of my swing.

    Thanks for incorporating this type of tip in your library.


    • Mike,

      Yes, videoing your swing is vital. I am really liking that Live View training aid. I will review it in the near future. Amazing for down the line work.

      Definitely, send in your swing. I will hack it apart real good … lol.

      • Paul,

        I would LOVE to have you hack my swing apart. As soon as the weather breaks I will get a front and down-the-line video into you. I would be honored to be featured in a tip.

        Do you use the Live View training camera? I hadn’t heard of it until you mentioned it here and I saw their website. Apparently it has now gone to market. I may get one. A much better investment than a new driver. It could be easily used at the range or even in the backyard doing practice swings. Hope you can get a review out soon.

        Thanks much!

        • Paul,

          Just a side comment. On the Live View website, they have a young pre-teen girl swinging with the system. She had an absolutely beautiful Paul Wilson, touch the legs, touch the head finish position. It just looked natural. Great stuff!

    As you know, I am really “good“ at coming over the top.
    As you’ve told me, this is become my number one priority of fixing. I really have been working on it and taking videos down the line the past couple of months.
    The comparison between him and your swing has really help me with the elevation of my own swing as well.
    Great series!

    • Jon,

      Very good. Just stay focused on fixing this for the next while. As you do, you will take your game to a whole new level. You can do it.
