    Paul have you ever used Tour Striker training aid?

    • Jim ,I have one of these TOUR STRKER irons ,,it is of some help to teach you to a descending trajectory towards the ball with the irons .The key to hit down with the irons is where you put your “suspension point ” ,that is the top of the last top vertebrae of your spine .Your swing turns around this point

    • Jim,

      Yes, this would get you thinking impact which is the last thing you should be thinking of.

  2. Excellent reminder,Paul,of the pure golf swing .The” spring ” is made of the right leg bracing ,with the right instep digging into the ground and at the same time of the shoulders turning behnd the ball so your back is “looking” at your target ;The swing is then a reflex action and you keep square ro the trajectory of the club head ,thus a straight flight of the ball .
    Both HARRY PRESSLER before WW2 and JIMMY BALLARD after WW 2,taught this swing .
    The best examples of this swing are MICKEY WRIGHT and GENE LITTLER .
    They both had beautiful and consistent swings .GENE LITLER was surnamed “GENE THE MACHINE” and MICKEY WTRIGHT won more than 80 Tournaments ,when she stopped playing age 34.BEN HOGAN said of MICKEY WRIHT she had the most beautiful swing he ever saw ,man or woman

    • Raymond,

      Very good. Mickey Wright did have an amazing swing. I suggest everyone look it up.

    Paul, excellent demonstration and reminder of the coil. I use to coil back and would hit some of my best drives but then because I didn’t know the reason behind it or practice it I would fall back to my own powerless swing and had little confidence where the ball was going. I use to drive it like 220 but since following your program I’m hitting it around 250. I still need a lot of work with repetition to keep my swing in the proper groove because occasionally I still can push some out to the right or hit to big of a hook. I hit one yesterday on a fairly level fairway 270 with a little wind help. Now i’m Also trying to focus on the short game to improve my scoring. Thanks for all your help.

    • Tom,

      You can never stop thinking of the coil. This is a huge part of the swing. Yes, it takes effort but it’s well worth it. So definitely focus back on this. Visualize it. Coil from the top … uncoil from the bottom. This will allow you to hit it very consistently.
