    G’day Paul,
    My father – in – law started this golf addiction for me way back in January 1974. His words still resonate now “Ben, let the club do the work”. He was

    • Ben,

      Yes, let the club do the work. Don’t listen to people telling you to “hit.” This is the worst thing you can do.

      I know you’re going to stay focused now. Glad to hear it.

    I know it would vary with each of us but what percentage of successful powerless arm swings through the ball on the golf course would be a realistic goal after maybe 6 months of practice and playing?

    • Jim,

      This is impossible for me to even guess. When I got it I did it instantly for every shot. Now that I don’t practice I feel the arms every now and again and have to remind myself not to use them. I would be happy if the average player just got this feeling once. After they feel it they will want it all the time.

  3. The absolute “purest” golf shots for me are when my Hands and Arms are without TENSION & my lower body is the real engine. Swing Machine Golf immediately opened my eyes to a more simple explanation and understanding of the golf swing – thanks Paul! Never played better – Wow.

    • Jeffrey,

      Perfect. This is exactly what I want to hear. The thing is everyone should be able to do this. I am not getting you to do something super human. I am getting you to use less effort than you are currently using. If I want you to use less everyone should be able to do this. Keep up the good work.

    One month in… I have my “One Shot”, and I don’t know how else to explain without someone thinking I’m lying (I do have this recorded). I went to the range today with one specific goal in mind…”3/4 power, MAXIMUM.” There are 3 flags on the range (100, 150 and 200 yds) plus another 50 or so yards beyond until the end. I take out the driver, get a few swings in and then address the ball. “PING!……………………………..ching!” I hit the fence !! I hit the freaking fence !!! AND, I pushed it slightly right ! I still have a lot of work to do with loosening my wrists but Good Lord, what might happen when I learn to square up that club face ?? 3/4 power… 250 some yards??? Me ?????

    • Lance,

      You are finding out that that swinging hard is not the way to swing. You turn hard and let the arms go along for the ride. In doing so you generate a ton of power with what feels like minimal effort. At 6’1″ you have the potential to kill it. 250 yards will be a bad shot in the very near future. Keep at it.

    Part 2… It also helps that I’m 6′ 1″. You’ve said and I’ve read that tall golfers with a good posture have a good chance to hit long with minimum effort. Looking at the video again, I still believe I hit it long but perhaps it was someone teeing off that was the second sound I heard in the distance. I don’t know for sure. Two weeks ago I hit a drive with 3/4 power and I know I cleared that last flag and TODAY’S shot felt more pearcing even though I pushed it a little right. Regardless, powerless arms + driving with your hips/legs = Miracles can happen.

    Still swingin’,


    • Lance,

      It’s no miracle. You are working on the right things. You will see, as time goes by it will get better and better.
