I took this new powerless arms swing to the course today and had some good results when I allowed the lower body to start the swing and let my arms go along. Question: should you feel a slight pause during seperation? Like when I was in the backswing and fired my knee over there was a pause(like a mili second) then the arms followed. it felt really good! is this correct? if so will staying back during that pause and then swing keep me on plane?
You should be feeling a slowing down of the club at the top. This allows the body to start first. If you rush the backswing there is not time to start the lower body. If you feel a pause that is great. Staying back should be occurring when your fire the lower body. If you have to stay back a little I’m okay with it until you do it naturally.
Hi Paul, starting to get the powerless arms and slowing the swing down but yesterday I still hit some shots were I was plane spotting, I just can’t stop the body getting up to quick, spoilt what good of been a good round. Any tip on what I should be thinking about to stop me jumping up and waiting for it?
You need to be working on this position in the follow through:

Also, ask yourself why you are coming out of it. It is human nature to look to see what you hit. The harder you hit the more you will look. I am not trying to hit anything therefore I don’t look until after I hit it. So slow down and get the positions first. Once you have built a great swing you speed up the leg driver for more distance.

I’ve tapped myself and in the slow motion of my swing I noticed that at impact my left hand is straight(no chicken wing), however my right hand is not extended after impact. Meaning it has folded too early(the right hand never became straight). What is causing this and how do I fix this?
The arms are buckling because the muscles are contracting. Keep the arms turned off. Then work on this drill constantly:

This takes a while so keep doing the drills and be patient.

Thanks for your response and I checked out the tip. All makes sense but you say that I will be topping the ball but in fact I hit it fat and a great big divet and the ball goes off to the right. Is it still the same solution?

I recently videoed my swing and noticed that I took my 7 iron way to far back and to far inside. Also my hands were below my head which is different from you when I looked at the pictures. Exactly how far back should I take the club and how high should I take the club and finally how far from my head should I take the club. Thx
You are going to go back as far as you can go back. This means you are coiling your shoulders into the backswing. As you start to feel tightly coiled you are at the top. This may be different from what I feel.

So work on your coil and set your wrists so they are fully hinged. These 2 things will determine your backswing length.
