    This series of “Yes” tips equals in value the student comparison series you did. Breaking the swing down into single steps that build progressively on each other is brilliant.

    I might add one thought. When I was first learning I got hung up on how I hit the ball. I was too shot conscious when I was practicing. I think that stressing that the shot result is not what a student should be aiming for. It’s being able to say “Yes” for that isolated piece of the swing. The ball could go nowhere, but that’s not the point.

    Another suggestion would be to regularly review the yeses a student has already mastered to make sure that no no’s start worming their way back into their swings. Maybe it would be helpful for people to keep a list of them as they go along for easy reference.

    Love this series, Paul.

    • Will,

      Thanks for the comments and suggestions. I will think about doing something with this series. Just other stuff going on right now I am trying to get done. I really like this way of working on it. Work on 1 thing at a time.

      I think I do keep saying it is not about the ball but the movement. I certainly do need to keep stressing this. This is the thing that drives me the most crazy. Everyone wanting to see great shots instead of building a great swing. It is about the movement not about the ball.

      • Paul I’ve been following your system daily for over a year. I am playing much much better. I’m a 19 handicap 73 years old. I have a large torn meniscus on the inside of my heft knee which causes strong pain when I “TOUCH MY LEGS” . I’m using “BUCKLE BACK TO BALL” . I also have difficulty holding the finish position due to the pain. Any suggestions.

        • Please make sure that first, you are doing the positions correctly and not over doing them or possibly incorrect positioning. Then while having torn menicus, this is a problem, you want to address the injury. Start to incorporate a stretching routine also. This can help anyone. If you simply cannot do the positions, then you want to try to get as close to them as physically possible without hurting yourself. If you are trying to a position like touching the legs and physically incapapble, then you are hindering yourself in mulitple ways. This is a pain-free golf swing. I would address the injury first and then get back to positions.

    Forgot to finish a sentence. That should be, ” I think that stressing that the shot result is not what a student should be aiming for would be helpful.”

  3. Another good reminder of how to acheive a sound golf swing.
    Looking at your numerous video lessons ,I have come to understand that the smoothness of the turn is paramount to acheive effortless distance .You move “smoothly” without any visible effort (Though you tell us you push of your right instep as hard as you can !).
    Now when I swing I try to be “oily and smooth” ,though exerting maximum effort .My distance has been improved and the shots are very consitent.
    It took me time to recognize and ingrain this principle

    • Raymond,

      I am driving hard and fast from the instep. I have just done it for over 30 years so it looks smooth. This coupled with loose wrists and you just kill it dead straight. I am going to shoot some videos today (hopefully) of me doing it on the course. Should be interesting.

  4. Dear Paul..i have never feel my club head that much heavy and my arms that much lighter..butter

    • Tolga,

      That is the tell-tale sign you are using your arms. You need to be way looser. Keep loosening until you feel it. Do swings off of the ground. This is an easy way to get the feeling then apply this feeling to you shots. You need to also be doing this drill:

    Paul, in practicing the lead leg locked, it seems to put a lot of stress on the outside of the left knee. The next day it was sore. Is this normal and do others experience it? I am 64 years old and am in good physical condition although do have balance problems. Thanks. Mike Barrett
