    Paul, I video my swing and see that my head doesn’t move at all…as you say it was ingrained into my swing at a young age. I will try to move back as you suggest with the driver, but is your head moving back with all clubs, even short irons?
    Thanks, John.

      Yes, it will move less with the shorter irons since your stance would be narrower. Check out this tip:

        With regard to swing thru with head behind ball….
        How does follow thru position remain so important if you are not getting there till after ball is released.
        You said finish position determines swing path?
        Having a hard time grasping

          I have taught backwards for 29years now and if you get these follow-through positions then you will start to look like a pro and then start to fix impact and other positions in your golf swing. Having more emphasis on the FT position will start fixing so many other things in your golf swing and once you make this important then you will become a better player. This is a video that I made years ago explaining an lot more:

    Hi Paul,
    As I was watching this video, I was trying to see where it was that I might be having my problem. The “current” problem is I am pulling my shots left. The ball is not hooking, so I think the club face is correct, but the club path is the problem. I have never felt that inside to outside path that you have described, but what I became aware of in this video is that maybe I’m not moving my head back far enough as I take the club back. I feel fairly certain that I am not using my arms and coming over the top. What do you think?

      Its very possible this could be the reason, if you do not move your head then if you go to shift forward any amount then then golf club will swing over the top. Go to the SEARCH bar and look up this tip series: Over The Top

      Start with this one and there are many more that will fix it: Over The Top – To What Degree Are You?:

    Hey Paul good tips.

    Normally my driver is pretty good. This past round I found I was slicing everything high and way right…onto adjacent fairways. Maybe I was swinging too hard. Are there any other culprits that I can address to fix this? Would the lack of hinge cause a slice like this?
