    Thanks for all your great video”s Paul. I have been working on my swing for a long time and have taken lessons. Your “Ignition Golf” site is AWESOME! I am learning so much here than I have had in all my lessons put together. This “hit the stick” is great, in that I slide a bit. Also, I have been told I fire my hips too fast and that should start my swing with my shoulders. From watching and listening to you, that dude is way off. It would be great to attend one of your classes in Vegas, until then, thanks for all this great learning here, I am excited to start hitting golf balls again

    • Tony,

      Glad you like the site. I appreciate the feedback.

      If you don’t fire your hips fast you won’t hit it anywhere. Just have to be careful when doing so because your release may not be timed for it. If you are hitting pushes and push fades you would be driving too fast but this is easily solved here:

      Just let me know if you can make it to town. It would be a pleasure working with you.

  2. Paul, as usual, great tip. When I practice in front of the window of my garage, it really feels great and increases my confidence. Then when I go play 18 holes, the obstruction to my swing is the ball. In my drives, the ball goes along the ground far to the left (I am right handed). From all your tips, I know that I must have gone over the top. I top a lot of my drives, so I must be swinging too hard. With my irons, even though I think I’ve swing my hips before my arms, I hit it fat. For the love of the game, I’ll keep on practicing.

    • Ken,

      So why do you keep doing the same thing when you play. You need to do something else. As I keep telling everyone just do the new swing when you play. Go out by yourself and do it. Swing at 50% thinking of the positions NOT the ball. If you don’t hit the shot pull out another ball and try it again. At some point you will see that you can do it. 2 people last week posted that they tried swinging at 50% and hit it better than they ever had. Just try it.

      Fat is too much weight on your back foot at impact so yes you arms are outpacing your body.

  3. Paul ,I ‘ve pretty well mastered the” rotation without slide ” you propte with thii drill (You showed it before ).
    Now I ‘ve “found” a move which is the following :extending the right arm (“Long Right arm “) as far as possible in the throughswing while keeping the hands as loose as possible (Difficult to acheive properly :if the hands and wrists are loose at the beginning of the backswing ,at the top of the backswing ,they tend to firm up in the throughswing to prevet “throwing” the club away .
    I also don’t roll the club head in the throughswing I keep the back of my left hand facing the target as long as I can .(My ball flight is straight)
    The SSRTT shows my club goes faster doing so!
    Generally speaking ,the more loose my entire body is ,the better I swing :if I “wiggle “the body and arms before swinging ,my swing is faster

    • Raymond,

      These are great things to be working on. If I can do it you can do it. I am not super human. I am just doing it a different way. You are getting close to that way so keep going.

  4. Paul,I forgot a most important feature :keep the head behind the ball while extending the arms ,which (for me ) means titing it backwards while extending the arms :it’s like I am catapulting the ball which is at the end of the club.(It’s the feel I get )
