Greetings Coach I don’t want to sound like i am trying to kiss your back side but i want to say how much my first year in your school has improved my game. I have been golfing for over 50 years with off and on success but it has only taken 12 months following your instruction to bring my game to where i feel really good and confident about it. People have noticed.Just two days ago the ranger on the course i was playing said “BOY,YOU HAVE A SWEET SWING ” That may not seem like much but i have never heard that before.I know i will have ups and downs but i know i am starting this year on a whole new level. THANKS COACH
Glad to hear it. I tell my students that if they work on my swing they will get people coming up to them asking about it. You can see that it is true. It’s a great feeling too. Keep up the good work.
The key challenge for me is really the follow up move that requires the weight shift back to the left leg to avoid the fat shot or other related problems. Good timing and balance is involved in this key return move to actually make the right leg touch the left leg while also locking the left leg into place when completing the follow through. One may think this is simple, but it too is tricky to maintain the balance and timing as needed to shift back to the left side as called for in the full swing technique. Hey, maybe the”advance test” will be coming soon to determine the ability to easily “shift” the weight both ways as needed in the full swing.
This really shouldn’t be an issue if you have thrown a ball in your life. This is the same move. I think you need to throw some balls and work on the move. Then do it in your swing.

Also, do this drill constantly:

Also, slow down and just do the move. Once you can get it you can do it faster.
I would echo John Hoyle’s comments. I have played golf for more than fifty years and am playing the most consistently for as long as I can remember.
My old buddies keep asking me, how can you it it so well when you hardly seem to be swinging at all.
My RG membership is still active but coming to an end. There is a regular coach there who advocates feeling much of the weight forward, with a steep tilt of the shoulders which I never felt comfortable with.
I am now very much in your camp. Keep up the excellent work.!!
That’s great too! I love hearing it. As I said to John, it’s a great feeling.
Not sure if saw this tip (funny):
How To Tell If You Have An Ugly Swing: https://ignitiongolf.com/how-to-tell-if-you-have-an-ugly-swing/
I saw the tip last night on RG. mind boggling.
One area im having trouble with is in the back swing
I’ve got the one piece take away going well but from there I find I need to lift my arms to get them in the right position
How do get them there without using them?
You lift them into position until they go there on there own. Just keep doing lots of practice swings.
