    Do you always not wear a glove?

    These comparison videos are excellent and reinforce the building blocks of a good swing. As a single figure handicap senior leftie with my bad shot being a pull/hook, I constantly review your cause/cure tips for this flaw.

    My swing at shoulder level,however, has always been a little flat,certainly compared with your own. My question is, would this flatness also tend to promote the pull/hook and should I work on a getting it a bit higher as you seem to also suggest for Eric.

    As an aside, it is wonderful to see a young kid with such a beautiful fluid swing.

      Glad you like them.

      The pull/pull hook is from you hitting it with your arms. If your body started first the plane would flatten and swing out at the ball. Now, you could be flat going back and coming over the top coming down (which is what I think). This is pretty typical. I would try to get the club up higher as I don’t feel the flatter swing hits it as far but that is up to you. To do this you need to get to 3/4 back and physically lift the club up higher. The back elbow would be loosely tucked like you can drop a grapefruit from this armpit. The easiest way is to point the thumbs towards your back ear as you get to the top. You know where your thumbs are. You know where your ear is. If you are too flat you would be way behind the ear. So this is the easiest way to get the club up. Once you do this for a while, it will go up without thinking about it.

      Then you need to work on the lower body. There are tons of tips on curing pulls on the site. Here you go:

    thanks Paul, I enjoyed it!

    Just a quick and dirty: The leg at impact is still flexed i.e., not straight. The latter occurs well after impact. Is this correct?

    Understood but let me rephrase it: The left leg prior to impact (from the start of downswing),has been straightening and will eventually lock i.e., be completely straight; so the technical question is, the left leg at impact, higher than, equal to or less than that at address?

    Later, Ken

      Higher because it is straighter. This would angle your hips. Your body is connected to the hips so it would be angled behind the ball as you hit the ball. This is the tilt I am talking about. I get it from firing my lower body.
