Dramatic Student Swing Change - Get the Same Results With These Drills

Check out how this student made massive changes to his swing in 4 lessons using these four drills.

  • We worked the big problems first (right hand dominance)
  • Then went to impact
  • Then the release
  • Then weight transfer (Optionally weight transfer can be fixed first if it causing the most problems)

Chuck teaches very passive arms and upper body but he also teaches to pull with the lead arm to create lag. Please explain.

Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Mike. The pull for lag is from the body. Legs, core and change of direction. The lead lat will aid in bringing the arms in front. The arms will be passive, but not dead so to speak. Not as passive as it may sound.

Hi Craig, similar to the video it seems when I swing left arm only that everything falls into place including my weight swift, correct timing on my left leg posting, etc. This is probably a dumb question but other than helping support the weight of the club, what purpose does the right arm play in the golf swing, other than to get in the way and mess things up? Thx very much.

Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello William. Other than the obvious support, etc. It basically messes everything up. It may add a touch more speed and help steepen the angle of attack when necessary. However, he is usually the back seat driver that keeps pissing you off.

When submitting our golf swings (DTL and Face On), should I be submitting what I think was a 'good' swing/ball flight, or should I post one of a swing that was a miss-hit? It seems there can be positives from sending in either of the two but I was just curious because I will be submitting my first video within the week. I know the 6-iron is widely considered the "control club" for swing analysis, but my driver has been the biggest culprit of miss-hits and was wondering which club to use for my video posting as well. thanks, Alex
May 17, 2016
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Alex. You can post either one. Sometimes a good ball strike doesn't necessarily mean that you used the proper motion. For an overall swing rebuild. An iron is better to use for the review. However, if you are really struggling with the driver feel free to show a driver swing to your instructor and let him know what is going on.

awesome results! great work...thank you for sharing! Curious on the fun data...how far was he hitting that iron in the before, and after? I just joined premium, after watching a bunch of ur videos, I'm wondering, why not start golfing with lefty clubs (as I'm a right handed). Seems like this would be the best approach...is this why phil was brought up hitting as lefty, or is that just a rumor?

Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Adam. I currently don't have the data available for you. I will ask the team. Happy to hear you've joined to site. Many have questioned whether to play from the opposite side of the ball. You could do it and I have students that have attempted it. But, it might take years before some of the coordination would match up. I don't know if this is the particular reason Phil is a lefty, but yes he is a righty taking advantage of that fact.

So if I am losing the lag as described above, I'm probably using too much right side or right arm/hand?
September 24, 2015
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Terry. Using too much trail side (right for right handed players) can easily lead to a steep and loss of angle too early swing. Take a look at the Frisbee Drill.

Greg
Hi RJ, For some time now I have struggled with getting my weight to transfer to my left heal on the downswing. I know this can be a sign of pushing from the right side, but even when I swing left hand only the weight is still more of a lateral transfer than into my left ankle. When I do the tempo drill and step to the left foot should I emphasize stepping with the left heal?
September 11, 2015

Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Greg. Yes, stomp that left heel into the ground. How to Swing from the Ground Up and How the Lower Body Works Videos should help.

You make a strong point to get an impact bag (I got one). However, if I search above for "impact bag," the search comes up empty. It would be nice to see which videos include the use of the impact bag. Maybe you could broaden the search capability.

Could you please tell me where to find the "Step Drill" he was talking about, that he used to teach the student toward the end, like week 3 or 4, I think that's what the student is doing in the picture of the video lesson above. I can't find that lesson any where.

Brian, I cant say for sure if this was through the online teaching system but if you would like to upload a review or get the unlimted reiviews, go to swing review (one of the tabs at top of the screen) then go to "get swing reviews and from there you can either select on the side if you would like to get unlimited reviews and sign up for them or upload a regular swing review that all premium members get 1 every 2 weeks. As for the cost it varies for person to person...Hope this helps. Steven

Great video. I have been working through the RST instruction for a little over a year, and my swing looks similar to the "before" swing of this video. I am left handed in life but golf right handed. At some point, I began to misunderstand the role of the right hand and became right-hand dominated. I had a question about some of the videos I may have misunderstood. Example, the wide-narrow-wide video seemed to have instructed me to power it up with the right hand and extend through, or some of the lag videos seem to teach the power in the golf swing comes in the impact zone via the right arm acting as a piston to power it up. So, how did I misunderstand that and allow myself to become right hand dominated? Do you think I forget to drill and teach the left hand?
March 29, 2015
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Michael. The trail hand does add speed. However, more players tend to over use the trail hand in the downswing. From your notes, it will be much more advantageous to train the lead hand and learn how to release the angle properly. It needs to be more about efficiency right now. Work on the lead arm and hand. Shoot for the look and feel of the Proper Muscle Activation Video in the Introduction Advanced Section and the VIjay Release Drill in the Advanced Downswing Section.

I recently became a Rotary Swing Premium Member and uploaded two videos of my swing for analysis. Four videos were recommended for me to check out with drills to practice - Connect to Your Core - Get in Box, Hinging From the Hip, 5 Minutes to Master Rotation and The Bucket Drill. I would still like to hit balls on the range and take more footage to see if my posture has improved and my understanding of rotation is becoming ingrained into my action. The thing is the videos are telling me not to practice with a golf club for at least a month - what do you reckon? I was thinking of at least checking out The Takeaway video and hitting some balls whilst at the same time concentrating on and still doing the drills on a daily basis...

R.J. (Certified RST Instructor)
William, While it is true that the golf club can be a distraction while first learning new movement patterns, it is important to push yourself once you feel that you're starting to master a movement. If you can make the movements look good on camera, like they do in RSTs videos, then try adding the club in, but turn it upside down so there is less weight at the end of the club. Once you master that, turn the club around, and then once that is mastered, put a ball in the way. If at any point you see yourself starting to lose form from adding in an additional step, go back to the previous one and practice some more. It's like lifting weights, if you put on so much weight that you can't do the lift with proper form, then you need to drop some of the weight off the bar, but if you don't ever move up in weight over time, you'll never see the kind of improvement that you'd like. I hope this helps! R.J.

I m working on these same changes in my swing. When I do the drills, I can really feel a difference, especially when I take my right hand off the club. Unfortunately, when I go to hit balls in a real situation, I am hitting a ton of fat shots. I;m thinking that this is because my right hand is getting too active again, as my old habits are coming out instinctively because it's been ingrained for so long. Does thins sound correct?
October 20, 2014
64x64
R.J. (Certified RST Instructor)
Duane, It's hard to tell without a swing review so we can see what you're doing; however, there's a chance that you're not posting on your left leg at impact, which will cause you to be closer to the ground with the club head. And it's more likely now that you're producing lag in your swing that you've got your weight on your back leg and you're leaning back away from the target trying to hit the ball too hard. Videos for you to watch ---------------------------------- 5 minutes to the perfect release Sang-Moon Bae Hips for Lag Impact alignments Face on Impact alignments Down the Line If you perfect those drills, you won't hit it fat R.J.

Hello Larry. The best way to start is study the Introduction Videos on How the Brain Learns and How to Practice. Move from there to the Setup. Both will be very vital in your success of changing your swing. Also, if you have the ability to send in your swing for review. One of our instructors will be happy to show you the most pertinent areas of need.

I know you will find this funny but... If I have no ball in front of me I swing exactly as prescribed here at RST, when I'm in a game and the ball is sitting waiting to be hit everything goes ..ts up, no left side weight shift, all right side over the top arghhhhhh! I practice these correct moves almost every day, lots of reps. So is there any kind of mind control which may work? I've even thought about hypnosis! I'm not giving up just a bit frustrated. Pete
September 28, 2014
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Peter. We don't have any mind control devices here. Wish we did though even for myself. If you are getting the reps in and making the proper movements. You should have some good training ingrained. As silly as this might sound you need to try a little less. If you are over thinking trying to perform the moves. You might be getting in your own way. Take a look at the Trust Line Video in the Introduction Advanced Section.

Toby
When doing the left hand downswing drill seen in the video, should you start from address each time, or can you turn it into a perpetual motion drill, i.e. swing back to to the top of the backswing upon finishing the follow-through?
September 27, 2014
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Toby. The only thing with keeping some perpetual motion is you can get reliant on it. Momentum is a tough force to fight. We still want to engage the proper muscles to swing the club and know we are using them. You can have the continuous motion if you would like. However, slowing things down will force you to train and engage the muscle for better learning.
September 27, 2014
64x64
Toby
Thank you, makes sense. Probably slow motion drills will help even more. I will try and do a combination of normal and slower than normal reps.

Ola
What confuses me is that you say here that the swing is mostly left arm dominant, but in one of the intro videos you compare the swing with a baseball pitcher where its logical that you take a step forward and throw with the right arm and says something like"it would make no sense throwing with the left arm.
September 27, 2014
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Ola. On the downswing the lead arm will be the driver. He is controlling the pull coming down. The trail arm does add speed 'like throwing a ball." However, it is more vital to learn lead arm control before adding the benefit of the right. Take look at the Using the Wrist Efficiently Video in the Introduction Advanced Section to understand more how the lead arm works.

Hi Chuck. Great video, thank you. I'm a relatively new RST member and I'm working with Jared D at the moment. One of my problems, which is a good one in some ways, is that when get it right the ball is now going a mile, but when I don't I lose a shed load of distance. For example I hit four pitching wedges over the back of four greens tonight with an average carry distance of 140 yards. Terrific ball striking, but it's causing me to be nervous about which club to choose to get the right distance. I would ordinarily expect to carry a wedge 110 yards. However, the RST programme is fabulous and I'm hitting the ball like never before - I need to train my consistency.
September 25, 2014
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Thanks Trevor. Added distance is a fun thing. However, if it pops up or changes randomly it can be a nuisance. With more training and a grooved swing. The yardages will start to even out.

In the Key to Lag (Full Swing Advanced/Downswing), Chuck shows a drill where the club is brought down by the RIGHT arm while holding the shoulders closed. He also says that most golfers throw their lag away because they are too LEFT SIDE dominant. This video appears to contradict the Key to Lag video. Which is correct?
September 24, 2014
64x64
Chuck (Certified RST Instructor)
In that video I was referring to the left side of the body pulling too hard creating too much rotation which creates the same throw-away of the club as pushing from the right side of the body. Here I'm referring to the left arm working more or less independent of the body rotation.

I'm a new member - so far I've watched quite a few videos and have only started to do the 5 minutes to a perfect takeaway. What is the best way to get going on my improvement/learning? I used to be a 1.8 handicap - due to a right shoulder injury last year, I missed an entire year and have been able to swing a club since May. I've lost about a club with the irons and have started to regain my driver distance since doing some of the "lag" drills. I need a plan for applying this mass of information and learning it to make the moves permanent. Help please
September 24, 2014
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Larry. I myself had shoulder surgery last year and spent this year recovering. Make sure you get you rotation back. My shoulder would fight me a little and arms would take over. Work on pulling back to the top and supporting the plane with your right side. Move 2 and 5 Minutes to a Perfect Backswing Video in the (Backswing Section). From there work on a good shift and using the lead arm correctly. Weight Shift Video Part 3 (Weight Shift Section) and Re-Shaping Your Swing for Lag Video (Introduction Section). That will give you some good flow back in the swing.

Hi Chuck great video but now im very confused, my swing is very right side dominate and I do understand using the left arm pull on the down swing but shouldn't I be using the right arm and side pulling in the backswing? your teaching a left side push and this always causes me to get way too deep and even cross the line? plus you have a video that talks about the left side push? please help. thanks.
September 24, 2014
64x64
Chuck (Certified RST Instructor)
I'm not teaching a left side push here, he's just having to use the left arm exclusively to train it. Both arms have to work together to get the club in the top position correctly. It is often helpful to remove the offending hand completely as I did in this case to be able to help the student understand how much they overuse it during their swing. This forces you to swing completely right or left handed depending on what you're working on.
September 24, 2014

Ok but in a perfect world I should be using right side pull in backswing and left side pull in downswing correct? Thanks.

I went out to the range and worked on this for a couple of hours, and even with only using my left arm/hand, I still am losing lag based on the video I took of my swings, and can't get into the same position as the student shown. Is it possible that my left hand is also causing lag to be lost? I don't see this when "reshaping the swing" drills are done into an impact bag, but am still losing big time lag. Any suggestions? Note: I did hit the ball with a different, more crisp sound, and lower.

Take your left thumb off the shaft, you're pushing against the shaft with the thumb. Take it off, video it, then put it back on focusing on the last three fingers and try not to push against the shaft and video again. Watch the magic happen...

As many as he could because he wanted to do lessons once a week which I didn't want to do. I normally won't do more than 1 every two weeks, but he was insistent so I told him he had to drill at least 100+ reps per day, and preferably 300 if he could. And he did, and that's how he got to where he is in 3 weeks.

Hello Tom. Thanks for the post and the compliments.
September 23, 2014

Hello, everyone. Chuck Quinton here with Rotary Swing Golf. I wanted to show you what kind of progress you can make when you're following the videos on the website, and so I pulled up this student here who I've given four lessons to. I'm going to walk you through the sequence. A lot of people have requested this. What's it like taking a lesson, and getting several lessons? What can you expect in results? How does it apply to the videos and learning on the website, and so on and so forth? That's what I'm going to show you here.

                I have a student up here, we're going to do before and after here. We're going to walk you through videos from all four lessons. They were followed once a week for four weeks. Here's where we started with, on the left. There's going to be a basic trend here that you're going to see. As we start, a couple things that you're going to notice right away.

                One, notice how that right knee is starting to get into a really weak position, bowed out left knee starting to get buckled in, and almost has the look of a little bit of a reverse pivot, where his upper body's starting to want to fall back. This is because his hips and his knees have shifted out from under him. He's in a pretty weak and unstable position here, to say the least. The cause of this, the culprit, is because he's a little bit too right-side dominant, or a lot too right-side dominant, in his backswing and downswing. He's trying to heave this right arm up into a powerful position and dominate the swing with just the right side of the body. Of course, this is going to create a lot of problems in the downswing.

                As we start down, you'll see right away that he's starting to move his hands, throw his hands out away him. He's going to throw the club away a little bit, and he's going to start to lose a lot of lag. By the time he gets about halfway down, he's already lost a tremendous amount of lag. As we near closer to impact, he's pretty much spent everything he has left in his wrist. He has nothing left to hit with, so he's going to scoop and flip into impact. You'll see that left wrist breaking down, the right wrist fully extended. It's flexing that left wrist back, so his left wrist is cupping, breaking down.

                As I mentioned, this is all a culprit from starting the swing, trying to get the right arm into a really loaded position at the top, and then throwing the club, throwing the right arm at the ball, the right wrist at the ball, dominating the swing with the right hand. Of course, the first thing that we do is we start trying to get him to be more left-side dominant. Here's how we started that. I actually walked through even his drills here.

                The first thing you're going to notice, and I'm going to walk through a few different things. Even from his drill, I'm going to put him back at the top of his swing right here. Just going left arm only, notice the massive difference in these two positions, just making a practice swing. Here, he's obviously loading up the right arm. Here, his right arm's not even involved, I've taken it off the club. But notice the massive difference in his lower body. This should tell you something.

                When you're very right-side dominant, you're trying to load that right side too much, trying to get all your power, because again, as I talked about in many videos on the site, and on YouTube, how we all tend to be right-side dominant. Most golfers are. We do everything in our normal daily lives with our ride side and our right hand. In the golf swing, it's no different, of course. But when you see all these tour players, they look very similar at the top of the swing and at impact. The reason is, is they know the secret that you don't, is that the golf swing is primarily lead arm, or left arm for right-handers, lead arm dominant.

                You can see all of a sudden, by just getting him to just focus on swinging the club back with his lead arm, he still makes a nice big full shoulder turn, in fact a bigger one, because he's got more weight on the right side. It's easier to make a full shoulder turn. His left knee is not buckled in, and his right knee's not bowed out. All of a sudden, all these great things happen. It's amazing what you can do when you just understand very simple mechanics of the swing.

                Now, as we start down, notice halfway down, we'll get his left arm parallel to the ground here, roughly parallel, a little bit off there, frames aren't quite exact here, but you're going to see a big difference. We'll get him as close as we can, roughly about the same spot, in the positions of the club. Ignore this bowing of the shaft. This is shot with an iPad, and the processor can't keep up with this stuff. It's moving too fast, so that's what it distorts it. Don't worry about that. The shaft is not actually bent like that. If you see that on your videos at home, don't worry about it.

                But you can see that the amount of lag that he has now, with his right hand's taking off, and it can't be pushing against the shaft to cause it to throw away, that he has a tremendous amount more lag as he comes into impact than what he had before. Massive difference. In fact, at this point, I'd say actually he's bordering on having a little bit too much. He'd have to really work hard to release that club in time at the last second there. We would also notice that his left hand, long before the club ever gets into the impact area, his left hand's up here by his left thigh, like I preach in the impact videos, and here he's already released the club long before that.

                Just by making one simple change, by taking the right arm out of it, getting him to swing left arm only, just having him go back and forth, not even giving him a lot of mechanical instruction. I'm just having him start to learn to train the left arm, like I do in the Left Arm Downswing Drill on the website, just working on that and focusing on holding onto the club with the last three fingers of the left hand, not pushing against the shaft with the thumb. That's critical, because that can also push the club out and cause you to throw the lag away.

                This was the first lesson. This is what we accomplished in lesson one, and he did great with it. We just focused on nothing but that.

                As I wanted to work up to hitting balls in this hour long lesson, which we don't always do, but I wanted to work up to actually hitting balls. You'll notice how I have him holding his right hand on the club. I don't want him to mess up all the good work we've just done. I have him basically open palming, what I called him palming the club, his right hand, so he can't grip it and wrap his fingers it, and start to want to get back into that right-side dominant mode. He's just basically mirroring the movements and helping support the club a little bit with his right hand. You'll notice as he gets that, he's going to want to get back in his old habits a little bit, not quite as good as he was at the top before, but still better than where he started.

                Again, just by taking that right arm out of the equation here, now as he comes down, not letting him use it, like you see in the 5 Minutes to the Perfect Release Video and a lot of other videos on the website, right hand is coming off long before impact. You can see we're in much, much better positions here, maintaining the lag a lot longer. Then he actually gets into a little bit better impact position. It's not great yet. Of course in the next lesson, that's what we tackle, so here he's got a little bit of breaking down, a little bit of pushing with that thumb that's causing the left wrist to cup a little bit. We'll work into that as we come back. We'll leave this guy up here for a second, because that one's going to be pretty bad. But again, we haven't worked on impact yet.

                Let's go to lesson two. In lesson two, we're reinforcing what we did before, again, continuing to get into focus on swinging left hand, but he's had a week to work on it now. You're going to notice, looking pretty good, starting to look like a golfer here, big shoulder turn, knees aren't so buckled out, his body a lot more stacked. Now he's gotten a lot more comfortable swinging with his left arm only, but he's able to get into good position all the way down, losing a little bit of lag, still. It's not perfect. It's only been a week, but he gets into a really good impact position.

                This is after we've worked on the impact alignment, the stuff you see in the Impact Alignments video, and the 5 Minutes to the Perfect Release. I'm having him focus on getting his wrist into a proper position here. Again, the shaft's not really bent this much. It's just the camera. His wrist is in an excellent position. It's up here by his left thigh, so now he's able to get into a really good position and start to work on releasing the club. Notice how the club is releasing by his left forearm rotating over, rather than his body releasing, so his right heel's still staying on the ground. When you're swinging left arm only, there's no need for your right side of your body to come through the shot. It only happens when the right arm is still attached to the club. That's what we worked on in lesson two is getting into a good impact position.

                This is lesson three. He just happens to be wearing the same outfit. As we come into lesson three, he's had more time to work on the left arm stuff, and we worked more focusing on getting into a better impact position. Now you can start to see, we'll go back on the first lesson, massive differences in the angles that he has created here by learning how to use the left arm and the body to start to move the club, instead of just his right arm like you see here. That difference in lag is night and day, especially for being two weeks after his first lesson.

                Here, this is an excellent position to be in. Again, left hand is getting into perfect impact position that you can see here, and shaft's not really that bent. Left arm is in a great position. He's no longer scooping and flipping it, and he's learning to release the club. You can see how much wider his release is here, because he's learned to release the club and let it go with his left hand by rolling those knuckles under on his left hand. I gave him a few different thoughts or visuals here. Sometimes I'll have people feel like they're backhanding me here, so I'll put my hand right here and have them try and hit me with the back of his left hand with the wrist of the left hand. Then I'll talk about pointing that logo down at the ground if he's scooping it and flipping it, or talk about rolling these knuckles, your last three knuckles on your left hand, rolling them under so that the club rotates over, and the toe rotates over. This is a beautiful impact and release position here, again big difference. Now, keep working on those moves.

                The last lesson, this is lesson four, four weeks into it. Now that he's trained the left arm, the left arm has a great idea of what to do, the right side's not so dominant. They're learning to work together a lot better. Now I wanted him to have something else to help move the club. We want to always have momentum, and we're basically managing momentum in the golf swing. You don't want to have to be yanking the club down with your arms, but if you're not using your body correctly, that's going to be what you're forced to do, because you don't have anything else to create momentum in the swing.

                What I had him do here is in that RST step drill. Basically, I'm having him start to create some momentum with the big muscles, with his body, with his mass. As he steps to the right, it's helping move the club and get some mass and momentum moving to the right. Then as he steps back to the left, now you'll notice one of the things that you see all the time in the tour players, and all amateurs always wonder how they do it, notice that his weight is beginning to move. He's taking a step back with his left side, but the club is still traveling back. His lower body is transitioning into a downswing mode, but the club is still clearly traveling in the backswing mode. Now as he pushes that left heel on the ground and stabilizes his pelvis, pushes the left foot in, he starts to get where he can have a really stable impact position and a great impact position with his left arm, right heel still down, rolling to the inside, club's releasing properly. Everything is looking great here, and he's learning again to use that RST tempo drill to add momentum to the swing, so he doesn't have to just try and muscle the club.

                All of these things are starting to come together, making a much more powerful athletic move. You can see at the top that he is obviously getting much more loaded on the right, compared to where he was if we look back earlier. You can see how that right knee's buckling out. Now he's got his weight over it, and this falling back to the target position doesn't make any sense. He's set up where he's gotten a little bit of axis tilt. He's more behind the ball, and then as he makes a good assertive move into it, he's got to use some power from his lower body, from his glutes, from his quads, from his hamstrings, that he can use the ground for leverage. He's got tremendous lag at this point, again, massive difference from where we were just three weeks ago. It's a massive, massive difference in the angle of the shaft.

                As he comes down into impact, he's doing a great job. He's worked hard on getting this left wrist into a good impact position. He knows exactly what it should feel like now. Beautiful impact position there, perfect. This is just about textbook for this drill. It's perfect. Obviously, you don't need a lot of hip rotation at this point. Shoulders are nice and square, right foot's rolled in, weight's planted on the left, beautiful.

                Now, the proof is in the pudding, as we go to hit balls. This is the challenging part. We put that little white devil in the way. As we go back, he's going to take a step back to the right, again, to help, gets him momentum to get the club started without just having to pick it up with your hands. He's made a big step over to the right, big turn. Now he's starting to look like a real golfer here. He's got that nice separation. His lower body's starting to move back to the left. He's got a great big shoulder turn here. We talk about the squat move a lot on the website. A lot of people just don't quite understand. They think they've got to lunge down at the ground and their head drop 18 inches or something. It's not like that. As he's stepping over, watch.

                Ah, get that line in the right spot. All right, this line does not want to go in the right spot. Let me try this one more time. Tend to draw it up here, there we go.

                Now, watch how, as his lower body begins to flex, and he increases the flex in his knees just a little bit as he's making the step, which is instinctive to do, he's getting lower to the ground. He looks in a much more powerful position, because his legs, if they're fully extended, they can't do anything else. If your legs are straight, your hips are straight, your knees are locked out, you can't do anything with your legs to create any power. That's why you look like you have this head drop.

                Again, tons of lag, posted up, impact position is fantastic. Left wrist is perfect here. Right ankle is rolled in. Left leg's posted up. He's going to release the club really well. You'll see nice good release of the toe of the club here. Notice how his hips aren't spinning around like they used to. We can flip back through that, get the club in the same spot there, roughly. Notice how high his right heel is on the ground, and he's turned his hips a lot more. Now his hips are much more under control, which is critical for stability and safety, and being able to control the flight of the ball, and he gets around to the finish.

                In four weeks, if you work through Left Arm Downswing Drill, 5 Minutes to the Perfect Release, that Vijay Release Drill. You saw that in there a couple times where I'm having him release the club with the right hand, literally let go of it. There's a reason it's called the release. Release means to get go. And that RST Tempo Drill that you saw used here at the end, you too can make these tremendous changes in your swing in no time at all, and start hitting the ball further with less effort, and start doing it today.
