First Ilike to say thank you for all the helpful tips. To change my swing from arm action to knee action took around 3 months. After my shot I can walk straight ahead to my ball while my friends played armee golf and searching their balls. For many years I had backpain problems, not only from golf but also from tennis which I played all my life and now, when I become 75 years the backpain gone away, that,s great.
Your swing technic is the very best one.

Glad you like the tips. Thank you for the kind words.
Also, glad you got the body swing and are seeing improvement as well as a pain-free swing. Maybe your friends should check out Ignition Golf.
Keep up the good work. I love hearing stories like yours.
If I try to keep my head back and hit it fat, am I too low with the head or stuck on my back leg? Is the fix to lift heel?:)
I did a tip on this here:
Stop Fat Shots When Working On Moving Your Head: https://ignitiongolf.com/fat-shots-moving-your-head/
In addition to circular rotation of the left hip on the downswing would one also feel the pelvis on the left side going up with the circular rotation? Not a jump but a feeling of the left hip turning back to left and up at the same time which in turn would also give you the spine tilt back on the downswing for an inside path. Is this a correct feeling? The belt buckle turns to the left but is turning upward etc..
You may. I have done it for so long I was never really aware of it. I will think about it next time out.
This may be another tip I can do to get people to do the tilt. Thanks.
I have decided to rejoin your website after going back and forth from one swing to another with limited joy. Hopefully i can make it work this time around as i still find myself at a 14 h/cap really wish to get to 10 or under and i am sick of trying to hammer the golf ball all day long.
I am wondering if you have any tips on how to stop rolling your wrists open in your backswing? I noticed that i was doing this the other day and id say its the reason why i hit a lot of high weak fades/pushes.
Funny, how I have received tons of these emails over the years. People who are IG member or owners of my products coming back. I am not sure what people are looking for. The answers are here and in my products. Remember, I went through all of this many years ago and searching and guessing was not a lot of fun. Glad you’re back.
In order to get to a 10 or better you need to think differently. This means you care about positions and making them perfect. While doing this you are not thinking about the ball. Master the positions. Build a great swing. Then think about the ball. You also, need to be doing nighlty practice swings as well as range practice. You cannot do this once or twice a week and you can never stop working on it. I did a tip a while back called “Working On Your Swing Is Work.” https://ignitiongolf.com/change-takes-work/

All of these should help. If you are rolling it you are using your hands. Need to turn them off and take it back with your body rotation.

Thanks very much.
I’ll put these tips into action.
Can I also ask does your left knee bend inwards a little in your backswing or does it move more out ?
It moves behind the ball following the rotation of the shoulder coil.

Also, I would think about doing a swing analysis with my assistant Pete to make sure you know exactly what you need to be working on.
I noticed your comment “If you are rolling it you are using your hands”.
I roll/flip my wrists early as a second nature (after working hard on killing the dreaded slice). If i start with the body turn correctly, I make a good contact, if not, a 15 yard draw. Should i completely stop rolling my wrist now ? I fear that i would be back to slicing.

By the sounds of it you have the roll over mastered so start forgetting about them. You will still be feeling them roll but you are not trying to purposely roll them. Your focus will be on driving the lower body first. If you slice it, go back to the roll over. Sounds like you are close.
