    Paul, I just watched your video on tilting for an inside swing. Does that conflict with dipping into the swing and hitting the ground. Please explain the difference. Thanks and great job!!!

  2. Hi Paul,
    Have you ever considered getting us to look past the ball at contact, to try and prevent the hitting syndrome?
    I have tried it a bit and thought I was getting through the swing better? Certainly not a lot of wayward shots as I expected..

    • I have tried in the past to get students to close their eyes or look somewhere else when hitting shots to stop them from hitting the ball, but it becomes very tough to even make contact with the ball at that point. This has been only for extreme cases. If you stick to working and focusing on positions and some drills and LOTS of practice swings then you will get the “hit” mentality out of your swing. The positions are the key to this, make them more important than where the golf ball goes. Check out these tips:

    Little things i come across are lightbulb moments as is this tip, however does this apply to only driver or all clubs please.I find i tend to move forward on my body turn in order to hit ball before ground and feel if i lean backwards i am going to always get the ball on the up. Great great tips.

    • This is for all golf clubs as you want an in to out path will all of your clubs. But obviously this will be easier since the ball is on a tee with driver. You can tee up iron shots, this also makes swing changes easier.

  4. Paul, your tips and site are excellent. However, one quick question on this latest tip. I seem to do the direct apposite, tilt too much to the right on my downswing, my right shoulder is too low and my path is therefore to much in to out and I have to flip it in order to get the ball on line. The swing also causes back pain in my right side. I just went to the range and again tried to do opposite of your tip I E keep my left shoulder down and my path seemed to be more square. However I just wanted to get your thoughts on this? Thanks, Bill

  5. Paul, this is a great tip for me. It seems like the missing piece. I feel like I am finally staying behind the ball – and like my right elbow naturally falls into the slot near my body. I can feel the club release!!

    This will be my practice swing…

    Thank you!!
