  1. Intelligent Lesson,Paul ,I tend to finish with the right foot flat :I know when I do so I’ve not moved my weight forward enough ,because of a tendency to adopt a too wide stance (A number of players on the tour have wide stances ,amazing TOMMY FLEETWOOD-last US OPEN contender- is an example of wide stance ).
    JORDAN SPIETH exagerates this right foot outwards move .
    Question :do you purposedly bow the left wrist out in the trhoghswing to better compress the ball?

    • Raymond,

      Glad you liked it. Thanks.

      Sure there are players with a wide stance. It makes it more difficult to get the weight off this back foot plus if the average player does this they have no way to check if they did the position right or not. My way the person can check it every time so their swing doesn’t fall apart.

      No bowing of the wrist. This would be manipulation of the face. I tried this for 10 to get my swing back and it never happened. When I stopped trying to manipulate it I got it. The bowing occurs on its own due to the club not being at the widest point of the arc.

      I did a tip on it here:

      Knuckles Down At Impact:

  2. Paul ,Since I reduced the width of my stance ,I move better my weight forward ,I contact the ball better ,no more thinning of my fairway woods.
    But for the driver ,with a narrower stance I have to tee the ball lower ,if not I sky it.
    I watched carefully JORDAN SPIETH during his first round 63 at the CROMWELL OPEN (TRAVELERS OPEN ):his right foot rolls very much open in the throughswing.
    JACK NICKLAUS would say you should “roll on the balls of your feet ”
    As for the bowing or not bowing of the left wrist at impact ,MOE NORMAN,the great bal striker , said like you to keep the left wrist flat

    • Raymond,

      You might be too narrow with driver. I tell people it is a “feeling” of shoulders width. This is not necessarily reality.

      Mine forward foot rolls a little too and I hit the driver amazingly well.

      The bowed/flat wrist is due to the wrist is doe to the right fundamentals. If you want to purposely do this go ahead. Once you hit the ball everywhere you will stop thinking about it. Keep in mind I hit 1,000 balls per day every day for over 2 years straight and never got it. I highly doubt you will get it. The day I stopped thinking about hitting the ball was the day I got it.
