    Love these video lessons. I’m sure you helped her tremendously. Don’t know who gave her lessons previously but something went wrong there. Her grip was so bad I don’t see how that was not addressed previously. I guess one can take lessons and still fall back into bad habits. I know all positions are important but to me , grip posture and the first part of the takeaway is more important. I learn a lot from these and would love to see more. Thanks a Paul.

      I see poor grips in almost every person I see. It is truly mind boggling but they are not being taught properly. A faulty grip alone will leave you with no chance to hit your best shots. So people are behind the 8 ball from the beginning.

      It all starts with grip and setup that is for sure.

      It wasn’t about before and afters on these ones. I will do some in the future. Stay tuned.

      She has actually been playing for quite a while and took a lot of lessons. There were serious issues which we addressed.

    It truly is mind-boggling how much bad instruction there is out there. I followed your advice (well-worth repeating) to stop listening to the instruction on GC and in golf magazines.

    My golf buddy recently paid thousands of dollars for a three-day, one-on-one lesson in CA. The instructor moved him into a very strong grip (he thinks this instructor is a genius??!!). Now he wants to use Golf Pride alignment grips turned way to the right.

    So glad I am hearing the truth about golf physics at Ignition Golf! I listen to no one but Paul Wilson.

      It sure is mind boggling. I went through all this many years ago. No one could answer my questions. If you don’t know how it works how can you ever fix it.

      Strong grip. Have fund with that. He may do okay for a little while but he will lose it. Let him know I said that. Pretty soon he will hit it left and right then he will be scratching his head why he is so inconsistent.

    I tried flexing (bending backwards ) the wrist more at the top of the backswing ,by mechanically forcing the bent position of the wrist (more looseness in the grip );Also by adopting a more vertical position of the upper right arm (the well known” waiter’s tray “position).It helped a lot my release and therefore I got more power and distance .You are perfectly right in saying that the looseness of the wrist is a vital issue .
    Concerning the grip ,what is better :the “V ” of the right hand towards the chin (Weak grip ) or slightly towards the left side of the right shoulder ?
    I myself prefer the” V ” towards the chin .
    Most golf teachers advocate a strong grip (“V ” towards the right shoulder).They say that most pro’s on the tour have strong grips !
