    This is a great tip for developing consistency. Linking it to balance is a concrete way for a golfer to recognize if he/she is closely reproducing a correct swing, assuming the basic elements are in place and working in sync. This doesn’t mean, though, that every in balance swing will produce a good shot, right? Maybe there was too much tension in the wrists or arms and the golfer came over the top. He/she could still be in balance but see ball for a right-hander go left with less power. But balance is a fundamental requirement for consistency, so it makes sense to check that first (say yes or not to it), and that’s linked directly to how fast the swing is. Wonderful tip.

    • Will,

      Yes, this does not mean you will hit a perfect shot but swinging in balance will give you a chance to do the same swing consistently. If you are falling all over the place you have no chance.

  2. Paul,when I swing fast I don’t wobble all over the place but there are times when when my rear leg comes forward and I walk through the shot.Is this bad? It doesn’t seem to affect the shot much….John

    • John,

      I don’t like it because I want you doing the exact same swing every day, every shot, forever. Try to hold the finish … perfectly.

    I love your “Say Yes” series – particularly this one on balance and the heavy club tip. It allows us to do a personal checklist to determine which parts of your teachings we have mastered and which need more work. I love having the Ignition Golf site available as a diagnostic library.

    I’m religiously doing 50 practice swings daily (even shoveling off a patch in the backyard so I can keep going in the snow). It amazes me how this helps it click and I find my body just going to right positions without any special effort on my part. Today, prior to viewing the heavy club video, I was feeling just that. I could tell my arms were playing no active part in the swing and I could tell my club head speed had increased. Can’t wait for the unseasonable snow in my town to melt.

    Thanks for Making Golf Fun Again!

      That series turned out great. I really like people working on things that way. You are certainly putting in the effort. Keep doing that to get more speed and you will have a great season.

        Thanks much for the quick response. I love the way we all have a personal connection to you and that you truly have an interest in our progress.

        One quick comment here. I mentioned about how much I like the “Say Yes” series. In looking at most of the Say Yes tips, there are relatively few comments – maybe 4-6 versus 30+ on many others. That tells me my fellow IG members are undervaluing this fine series. Perhaps you could do a new tip that direction them back to search the Say Yes series as a way to benchmark their mastery of your teachings. Perhaps call it “Say Yes – Recommitment.” People are missing the boat that don’t take advantage of Say Yes.

          You are my reputation so I care what everyone is doing.

          Comments are funny. Just when I think I knocked it out of the park I get crickets. Others I think are just good I get comments. Can’t explain it.
