    Awesome drills the last few days Paul. I feel these drills really get me thinking loosen up for sure.
    Thanks as always.

    • Steve,

      Glad you liked them. Not sure why I didn’t think of this years ago. It gets amazing results.

  2. excellent. Have been using your instruction for some time, but failed to understand the necessity of a weak right hand grip. This makes impossible to want to hit with your arms. I reviewed the grip, made the change and used the vertical to vertical tips and have seen what you have been teaching all the time. what a difference. We all tend to overlook the grip importance and the fact that all we are doing is creating a huge hinge that moves with our body. Thought you might like to hear about this improvement. Richard

    • Richard,

      Glad you had a breakthrough. It is not necessarily loose right hand. It is don’t hold on so tight you lock your wrists. I am holding on secure but my wrists are super loose. If you need to loose the right hand then do so because this is giving you a huge breakthrough. Into the future don’t be so loose it comes off the club. Just have it on securely without locking up.

      I think this drill is going to be great for a lot of students.

      • Paul ,There are photos of VIJAY SINGH letting go of his right hand at mid follow through .He’s not
        alone to do so ,I remember having seen other top golfers do it also

  3. Paul, in my previous comment I talked also about my change from a strong right hand grip ( not loose) change. This combined with the vertical to vertical grip enabled me to see how not to hit with the arms. I had too strong a grip and pulled everything, especially with the driver. when you have a strong grip it is so much easier to hit with the right hand. With a weak grip, it is almost impossible and you have to use your body and the wrist hinge. In fact I would recommend telling all of your students that the weak right hand grip is imperative and than no one can do your swing with a strong grip.

    • Richard,

      I try telling everyone fingers of the right hand (which is weak) but do they listen? That is the question.

  4. Thank you so much for your tips. I practice vertical to vertical drill every day. It works for me. I do not swing with my hands anymore. However, I think that if not rotate shoudes at the same time with lose wrists, wsing is not worked well. Pls, give some tips to practice shoulder rotation.

  5. Awesome mini-series, Paul. I’ve never hit the ball so solidly. I would greatly appreciate seeing slow-motion video of both hands/wrists/forearms as they move through the release, with your detailed description of what they are doing, just as you have explained what you do from the top of your backswing. Thanks.

    • Steve,
