    Greetings Coach I have a question unrelated to todays tip if i may/ Several years age i was putting looking at the hole and was having mostly good results/leaving the ball tap in range or a little longer/ this was before i was aware of your teachings /just luck i guess/ I stopped because i got so much flack /The most comment was NEVER UP NEVER IN// The reason i was using that ;method was based on looking at the target like in horse shoes bowling shuffle board hockey/I know those sports are not golf but i felt the concept was close////You are he COACH tell me your thoughts THANKS

  2. Hi Paul, I have been doing this recently and getting a lot better at it but is this drill mainly for the driver or should we be doing this with our woods and long irons.

  3. Paul ,I never slice the ball ,occasionally a slight fade or a slight draw .always unintentionally ,and don’t like it when it happens
    I feel comfortable playing that way as I’m assured to go where I want to when my aim is right
    I’ll practise though your drill to find out if I can roll the wrists enough to hook your way .
    You don’t mention in this video the classical way to Draw/Hook ,i.e ,closing slightly the stance (I never ,never do this ,I feel most uncomfotable with a closed stance and I am sure I’ll push the ball to right and not draw it doing so)!
    Reporting on my progress with your teaching ,I glad to say that it took me about two years of your stubborn teaching for me to ingrain completely the “POWERLESS ARMS “and “PUSH YOUR LEGS”concepts :since a couple of games ,I hit much longer shots (20 yards with the driver,about so with the fairway woods )by COMPLETELY RELAXING ARMS ,WRISTS ,HANDS ,FINGERS just before the takeway and keeping this relaxation as long as I possibly can ,together with pushing as hard as I can with the right leg towards a straightening left leg .(I wiggle like a worm before starting the takeaway )
    As you said righly in one of your videos ,it provides “an unmistakable feeling “!

      Very good. People just have to do it right. If so, they hit it amazingly well.

    Paul, you are so correct in your tips. The first time out this year, I played, for me, decent golf. In one hole, I did flick my wrists at the bottom and low and behold, the ball was 200 yds. That was the first time ever. A few days ago, human nature crept in and I golfed terribly. At least I know what I did. I wish I could practice as you advise, but at 70 +, I can only practice so long. Now, it is in my mind. The first thing I think of on the backswing, is the one piece take away, the hinge, my trigger off of my back foot, then keeping my lead arm straight, and turning my hips, and then flicking my wrists.

      You finally felt it. Great!

      Just remember to be practicing these things at home. Do a few swings … take a break … do it again. This really is the best place to practice. I keep saying this. You could flicking the wrists all night at home then you will get used to it. Once you get used to this action it should happen without thinking about it. Right now, you need to keep working on it.

  5. I have hit balls and I am sending them horribly to the left is this what you mean Paul and what do I have to do to straighten my ball I practice a lot without the ball but then when I hit one it flys to the left is this to do with my lower body not moving fast enough

    • Sean,

      Yes, you are purposely rolling the wrists. If you are hooking it consistently then you don’t have to work on rolling them anymore. It is time to focus on coiling and uncoiling. Once the body starts the downswing you will hit it straight.

  6. I can do this but my question is how do you transfer this to your regular golf swing? Should,you always be releasing the club in the same manner as this practice?

      This is a drill. You are hooking until you no longer put any slice spin on your shots. If you hit every shot straight or hook it why would I tell you to do this? So get step 1. No more slice spin. At this point you would be focusing on body to straighten it out.

  7. Paul, I was practicing at the range yesterday and hitting with an eight iron. I started hitting it with a 10 to 20 yard hook at the end without trying. I use a neutral grip and swing path appeared to be on line. Suggestions?
