As to the above tip/frill: can you tell me where the clubface is square. Is that at the point of impact or on the point of release. Or doesn’t it matter as long as I can see the back of my hand ?

The club would be square to the path at the moment of separation (when the ball leave the face) and square to your body at the release point approx. 2 feet after impact with irons and 3 feet with driver.

These “Say Yes” tips are terrific. I bet you’ve been thinking, “I could cook a book out of ’em.” And the title? “Say Yes! — A [# of yes steps]-Step Approach to Building a Great Golf Swing”. You’ve practically written it already!
Great idea Will! I’d buy it 🙂
I better get writing.
I will take that into consideration. Great idea! Thanks.
+all of your tips are very informative……this “hands
crossing over” really is important to the swing…..
……even the rabbit in the background stopped to
listen to the tip!
Actually these “yes” tips help a lot and give me that much more knowledge of the swing and it is helping

Very good. Glad you (and the rabbits) like them. Thanks.

Thank you for this video. I recently took a lesson where the instructor was working to change my release to a stable release (Sergio Garcia) vs. the roll release like you teach. He seems to think that this is a much simpler move at the ball w/ less timing issues. At this point in my life (I’m 32) and have grown up w/ a roll release, to work on the stable release and rotation just seems very difficult to do at this point. It doesn’t seem like a simpler release to me. Do you have any thoughts on stable release or do you strictly teach the roll release?
Thanks So Much,

Stable release to me means lock your wrists. At impact you only have a few degrees room for error. So what if you don’t lock them enough (hook) what if you lock them too much (push/ push fade). This will be a never ending battle and you have to practice it too much. If your wrists hinge the in the backswing they have to re-hinge in the through swing. So the wrists hinge and re-hinge. A hinge is loose. This arm unit is then connected to your body coiling and uncoiling. So it is was easy doing it my way because you are never manipulating the club through impact. You are getting the consistency with our coiling and uncoiling.
So keep your release and focus on the body coil and uncoil. Let the club swing wherever it wants. Watch:

Thank you once again for your guidance. I’ve been practicing the past several days just using a club w/ loose wrists even indoors when I don’t have a chance to be at the range. I had my first range session this morning and it was terrific. I didn’t realize how locked and tight everything was. Today everything felt fluid. With nice loose wrists, a coil, and an uncoil my swing felt effortless today. I know now moving forward that I will 100% be committed to a roll release. You’re teaching style time and time again has brought me back to center and consistency in my golf swing. Thank you so much.
Glad you are doing well and getting it. A lot of people don’t realize how tight they are. They come for lesson and I grab their club and swing it back and forth a few times and it is tight as it can be then I have them swing mine. Not even close. So loosening up is really going to help your swing. Glad you saw you are tight and are working on it.

Paul, you are my go-to guy on golf instructions. You have helped me immensely. I also like Chuck Cook, golf coach at U of Texas. One thing he teaches is on finishing the golf swing is your back shoulder should be ahead of your front shoulder when facing the target. This has really helped me putting your swing thoughts into use.

That would be okay if you are flexible enough, but I see so many golfers that are not flexible to start with and then trying to add in something that is just not really needed. Its fine for a younger person that is flexible but for the common golfer, I want their belt buckle to be pointing left of their target (for a righty).
