I'm new golfer and I am totally confused by all the contradicting advice I get. For example, at different times I've been told to start my downswing by 1.) Kicking in my right knee, or 2.) Pulling down with my left arm while transferring my weight to my left side, or 3.) Turning my left hip as fast as I can. Can all of these be right? If so, which should I choose? Thanks for your help.Bob B., Tahoe, Calif. hmmmm

keep me posted I watch Sergio on TV and they always talk about his lag move at the top of his backswing, where he drops his hands into the slot. How do drop my hands into the slot to deliver the club on an inside-out swing path without losing the coil that I've created in my backswing?Ben H., Leominster, Mass.
