Since 2004, RotarySwing.com has helped more than 415,363 (check out the nice stuff they say in these reviews), and Master Rotary Swing Tour Instructor Chuck Quinton has taught and done research on the golf swing for over 25 years.
We realize how important golf is to you, whether you play professionally, for bragging rights with your buddies, or just to spend time enjoying the outdoors with friends and family.
We also know that everyone struggles to get better. The golf swing's not rocket science, but sometimes it can feel that way.
Our philosophy is really quite simple: Provide thorough, yet easy-to-understand golf instruction based on facts rather than fads, gimmicks, opinions or guesswork.
All of our facts tend to center on these three areas:
- Golf Swing Physics: Understanding club plane, swing path, and sequencing is obviously a must.
- The Body: Your body was designed to move in certain ways to be powerful and efficient or risk injury.
- The Brain: After learning how to move your body properly, your brain has to ingrain it.

Quinton has spent countless thousands of hours researching biomehcanics, neuromechanics, anatomy and physics to develop his unique and systematic approach to the golf swing. His early research into how stroke victims are able to learn new movement patterns through a specific motor learning process lead to the development of the online learning system that has helped hundreds of thousands of golfers around the world play their most consistent golf ever.
His instructional website, www.RotarySwing.com was the first golf instruction membership site on the net and is one of the largest golf instruction sites on the internet today with thousands of visitors per day and is host to over 300 instructional videos that Quinton has created, as well as over 100 articles he has written.
He has been featured as a guest on ESPN Sports Radio numerous times, as well as numerous local radio shows around the country.

It is through his thousands of hours of tireless research, continuing instruction and hard work that this site, the original Rotary Swing and the Rotary Swing Tour (RST) have come about.
Chuck has given over ten thousand in person golf lessons over the past 20 years and he and his team have done nearly 80,000 online swing reviews. Recently, Quinton has begun posting his Free Golf Lessons on YouTube. Check one out below:
Jeffrey P. Broker, Ph.D. - Biomechanist
He continues to work closely with Olympic Sports. Current sport biomechanics projects include the analysis of long and triple jump technique for the US National Track & Field Team, assessment of visual processing, perception and reaction for softball pitchers, cycling biomechanics/aerodynamics, injury mechanisms, and volleyball serve optimization. He also collaborates with local medical organizations in the area of clinical orthopedic biomechanics, injury mechanisms and musculoskeletal injury management.
Dr. Broker’s courses at the University of Colorado include Biomechanics, Advanced Human Anatomy, Biomechanics of Musculoskeletal Injury, and Anatomy and Exercise Science: Applications to Golf. The Anatomy and Exercise Science with Applications to Golf course uniquely serves the University’s Professional Golf Management Program. These courses are taught at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Most recently, Dr. Broker has engaged in research exploring grip pressure patterns in golf, biomechanical and perceptual conflicts in putting, and pedometer- and GPS-based assessment of golf as a means of obtaining 10,000 steps per day. At the time of this writing, Dr. Broker has authored or coauthored over 35 peer reviewed articles and published abstracts. He has written or coauthored 13 book chapters or review articles. He is also on the Advisory or Science Boards of USA Track & Field, USA Cycling, USA Volleyball, and USA Triathlon.

Mitchell Supler MD - Neurosurgeon
Dr. Mitchell Supler brings over 20 years of neurosurgical experience to the Masson Spine Institute. After graduating with honors from the University of Florida College of Medicine, he completed his residency in Neurosurgery at the University of Florida as well in 1996, training alongside Dr. Robert Masson. He has been board certified by of the American Board of Neurological Surgery since 1999.
Dr. Supler excels in the treatment of recreational and professional golfers with spinal disorders. An avid golfer himself, Dr. Supler holds certifications with the Titleist Performance Institute, bringing an expanded knowledge of the biomechanics of the golf swing and its effects on the spine. He is one of only two neurosurgeons in the country to carry this distinction. Dr. Supler can, also, be heard regularly on the Sirius/XM PGA Tour Radio show “Inside the Ropes”.
Dr. Supler has unique specialization in artificial disc replacement of the cervical and lumbar spines These procedures allow preservation of mobility, produce less surrounding tissue damage, and result in a faster recovery to a more active lifestyle. He successfully performed a cervical disc replacement on Dr. Masson who, within 8 months, summitted Mt. Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa.
Dr. Supler is one of the nation’s leading surgeons specializes in the treatment of chronic pain through spinal cord stimulation. His expertise is in high demand having trained numerous physicians from the United States, South America, Europe, and Asia.
Treatment for pain arising from the sacroileac joint is one of Dr. Supler’s greatest passions. Over 20% of back pain may be arising from this joint, and it is often overlooked. He is one of only a few surgeons in the country performing minimally invasive surgery for sacroileac joint dysfunction. He is currently involved in research to develop newer, more refined techniques as well.
Dr. Supler’s knowledge, training and experience make him an asset to the Masson Spine Institute. He is dedicated to using the latest, proven technology and applying it to each individual patient.
