    I have been using the hip start device. To activate the device, it seemed to take a lot more energy than I use with my normal swing. Also, I have to turn my hips much faster than normal. Should I experience this same feeling in my normal swing? Is my normal hip turn to slow since I’m unable to activate the hip start with my usual swing. I have been moving my hips before my arms with my usual swing.


    • Dear Mr “Roy”
      I am sorry to interfere with your comment and I don’t know what Paul will say in response to it ,but in my opinion the hips should not move much in the backswing and certainly not turn fast .
      It is to be noted that BOBBY JONES said that “Nobody has swung the club ever to slow”

      Yes, this is the whole point. So this tells me you weren’t firing your hips anywhere near hard enough. You can adjust the tension on the arm. Loosen it a little to make it easier then slowly tighten it as you get better.

      It’s An Unmistakable Feeling In Your Legs:
      How Much Legs (jump):

  2. The ITALIAN PLAYER FRANCESCO MOLINARI who won the BRITISH OPEN in 2018 and was leading in the 2019 MASTERS by two shots in the 4th round before collapsing uncomprehensibly with two double bogeys in the AMEN CORNER is nicknamed LA MACHINA for his repetitive and consistent swing (Like GENE LITTLER nicknamed GENE THE MACHINE ):he is said to be disgusted by being outdriven by 40 :60 yards by the likes of DUSTIN JOHSON and RORY Mc ILROY .
    He therefore changed his rotation backwards :he used to block the hips going back (The X factor ):he now lets his right hip turn more .Do you advise doing so ?

      I want your shoulders to move your hips into position. So yes the hips rotate. I want people to keep them still or feel them still because they move them way too much getting the outside of the right foot (sway). So less movement going back knowing they will move into position would be ideal. You can resist too much too which is not good. The hips have to move half of the shoulders.

    I know you start the body moving before the arms but when I watch the pros on TV it looks like their body and arms start at the same time, also their back swing is so fast and iron backswing for longer distances seem like a 3/4 swing

    Hi Paul, its great that you bring up the subject of “time”. Ive been following you for more than a year and i think your tips are great. However, when trying to implement them i have to think of what Im doing and how… and thoughts take time, which can get in the way of a good swing. As you say, not much you can (or should!) think about in a laps of less than 1.3 seconds (0.3 sec for the downswing). David Breslow recently posted on the idea of “not thinking”… [you should not be thinking while playing/swinging, but rather “feeling”… focusing on “feel”]. I’ve played other sports all my life and never have I caught myself “thinking” how to strike a soccer ball or catch a baseball… I just do. This long comment is just to ask you for a series on “what to feel, or what feelings should we be looking for while swinging to achieve your techniques or implement your swing/tips”. More often than not I find myself out on the course working (thinking) or making sure i swing correctly instead of just playing the game… that is no fun. Would greatly appreciate the help & advice. Thank you.

      Good to hear from you. Glad you like the tips.

      You need to think when you are practicing and working on the pieces. Then once once you have repeated them enough you should be doing them without thinking. I don’t think about touching the legs and head. I am thinking about coiling then firing my lower with my trigger and not helping the shot with the arms. That’s it. I watch the ball to determine what I did or didn’t do.

      We have a whole series on feelings. Just go to the red navigation bar to the right and type it it. They will all come up. There are a bunch on there.

    Hi Raymond,
    I guess I wasn’t clear on my comment. I was referring to the downswing, but your point is well taken regarding the back swing.

    Hi Paul I love your tips and I’m working many of them. Like everybody else I can get obsessed with distance. I’ve got my wrist rolling pretty loose and now run into problems with hooking to often. Would a longer back swing help that?

  7. Paul,

    In responding to another tip where you advised me to slow down (how many times to we all have to hear that before we get it????), I produced some great results with it using my driver at the range.

    I noticed that the slower backswing also felt like it gave me better wrist hinge and a longer backswing as an automatic side benefit. Do you find that in others that a slower backswing also yields a longer backswing with no effort?


    • Mike,

      Not sure I’ve ever seen a slow short backswing. They are always short and fast. Tough swing to generate power with unless you’re a kid.
