When shifting weight to trail side where should the pressure be in the right foot seems like I favor the front of the foot and when i concentrate more to arch the strike is better

Hello Mike. The weight will be moving into the heel. It will move towards the back of the foot. You want to shy away from the toes/balls of foot.

Craig, after practising this homework my left knee hurts a lot! What am I doing wrong? Hyper extending?
April 17, 2021

Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Either hyper extending, or getting too far beyond NJA. Don't allow the knee to hyper extend, and focus more on the lead oblique to open the hip.

Hi Craig, My hands/club face, always rotate just at the moment I am striking the ball which is earlier than what I see when watching Chuck's swing video's. If I make a conscience effort to not let them naturally rotate, it feels awkward like I'm holding the position by tightening my wrists which doesn't seem correct. I have worked through these drills but having same issue. Any suggestions?

Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Steve. You will have a more rapid rate of rotation as you start to reach impact. But, it sounds like you maybe having a last second flip. You need to work on a more gradual move. Take a look at Flip vs Release and Left Hand Power Release Drill Videos.

Hi Graig, Marcel here. I am in the 3th week program of Chris serie. I made all reps in past weeks but did largest part witout hitting balls, just going slow and looking in mirror. From 1000 weekly reps I did about 100 with hitting ball. I notice great progress in consistency, more distance and control. Looking at ballflight the carry distance is almost same for most balls but dispersion is to much , about 25 - 30 yards at 160 yards, 7 iron. Ballflight is as good as strait, no big curves. It looks like path and face angle are close but there must be a reason for the dispersion. Could use some suggestions what could be problem and what to do? Thanks for helping! Thanks for helping

Hello Marel. Dispersion is usually adding some steerage into the mix versus letting the club release freely on its own. Take a look at Play the Best Golf of Your Life in 6 Weeks Video 2 of 6 and Flip vs. Release. Both will help with tension and making sure you are steering the face through impact.

I have had trouble establishing and maintaining enough lag. I don't know what possessed me to try a few swings with a 10-finger grip, but I find it so much easier to let the wrists cock and maintain that far longer in the downswing. I've played for over 60 years and have never used this grip. Have you heard of this phenomenon? Should I switch my grip to a "baseball" grip?

R.J. (Certified RST Instructor)
If this is the case, it's likely that you were pushing against the shaft with your thumbs in the downswing. Do you have wear marks on your grips on the top of the grip? The thumbs help us keep the club from moving laterally and helps secure the club where it needs to be. If you're having issues with lag, it's typically coming from improper sequencing in our swing. If we load the muscles in the body the wrong way in the backswing, they're going to unload the wrong way in the downswing. This is usually the main reason why people are unable to maintain lag in the swing.

I still struggle with this drill, I hit shorter than before. Maybe I commit some faults So I would like to ask you for some clarification and recommendation :2 points. The first is sitting to the left leg. According to Chuck clip, I understand that when shifting the weight to the left leg, the flex of the left leg remains the same as at address of a little bit increases. In the 1st case good for impact, but has not enough strength for posting up. The 2nd case give more strength but risk that the right leg will not maintain the flex at address. Another pb the left leg which is straight during posting up should happen only at impact. It seems I shift weight to the left leg and post up immediately while the club does not yet reach impact. Please could you clarify these issues. Thank you very much.
January 13, 2019
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Tram. You should shift into the lead glute. Maybe a slight increase in knee and then post up to clear the hips which will bring the arms/club into impact. You can't wait until impact to post up. Post up is what triggers the release of the club. You will start posting before the club reaches impact. The drill above does split items into a sequenced event. But, shift, post and release is the mantra. Take a look at Step 2 - Core Rotation and Step 4 - Add the Club.

Tram
Thank you very much for your advice. I start to practice add the club of 5 steps, but I still have the problem, when I post up the left leg, the right leg straightens in the same time even I keep right leg quiet during downswing. Could you suggest any remedy? Thank you very much.
January 20, 2019

Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Tram. Sounds like you are overdoing the post "up" portion and not allowing the lead oblique to pull you away from the ball. Take a look at You Hit the Golf Ball with Your Legs. If you are clearing the hip properly. The spine angle should retain and you should be able to calm down the trail leg.

Question: As one begins to shift the weight on to the left leg and begin to push up (to leverage ground forces), wouldn't that change the spine angle and result in the loss of the posture?

Dean
I remember when I joined that question popped into my mind. When your butt gets out of the way and you maintain the tush line you can stay in posture and your head won't pop up. I use a chair against my rump so I don't have to check that on video. When I really nail it, with some in reserve, there is actually an increase in spin angle. It's very helpful and an easy way to ingrain it. Search for "Chair Drill" video. Can't do too many reps with the chair and reminds me to do some today.

Chris, I noticed in your slower practice version of stage 3, at your transition to downswing and to emphasize the sitting to the left, your head drops down significantly then returns to normal at impact. Following that during your regular swing, the head stays perfectly still. Please explain. John Schoonover Academy Member

Hi John, I was emphasizing that move as part of the way that I instruct. I do not have a ton of "sit" in my normal swing so that is why you do not see that sort of movement from ME, at higher rates of speed.

Craig two questions/problems. Weight to the right heal is fine but for some reason it feels weird and difficult to shift to the back left heal, I tend to stablilze to the left toe...suggestions? Second if you post up on the left foot why doesn't that raise your spine angle and mess up the point of contact. Do I assume you are simply trying to get back to the original setup so the down effect is simply a power effort and the postup gets up back to normal....its the only way that works I guess. The left heal just feels weak and unstable.. thanks.
July 24, 2018

Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Stan. The toes will help with stability, but shouldn't be the main show of attraction. Sounds like you are pulling the weight incorrectly. Take a look at Preventing Hip Pain (for pulling) and the Weight Shift Sweep Videos (to feel the planting better). The post up is moving the hip back and away from the ball. It actually helps you increase spine angle. Take a look at You Hit the Golf Ball with Your Legs Video.

Craig-I am at step 3 and have 400 reps in. Went to golf course and did not play well. These are my issues:1) I have trouble remembering to let the body pull down the arms from the backswing. 2) as shown the weight shift left is two steps-sort of a slide then a twist described by a sit into lead heel and press down-how can we make it a continuous one move? 3) Through impact I either still the very last fraction of a second top the ball or hit it to the left. I hoped video 4 would show how to blend the first 3 video moves into a full swing but it did not--How do I get that lesson? I will try to get a video at my practice mat but on the golf course is where it falls apart-can I send a video at the mat and also on the course?

Hello Stephen. Sorry to hear you played poorly. To help with the continuous move (Step 2 - Core Rotation Video on a smaller scale, You Hit the Golf Ball with Your legs Video - for hip usage). Then, the 9 to 3 Drill Video is the whole move blended together. Yes, you may send both videos without a doubt. It would be good to see the difference because you may end up not taking the range swing to the course.

If i still feel im using my arms especially the right to release the club, what do you suggest I do to makr sure i lead with my left side during the downswing. Also im struggling to get the natural feeling of squating while shifting to my left heel and posting up to release the club. It feels like im too right arm dominant if that makes sense. Should my arms be really relaxed throughout the entire sequence so I can release the club using my left side? I seem to either slice the ball or pull it. I keep my right heel planted in the ground through out the swing. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Hello Stephen. Yes, the arms should be fairly relaxed during the entire sequence. Take a look at Play the Best Golf of Your Life in 6 Weeks - 4 of 6. Practice in the steps mentioned and let go of the trail to help it not dominate your release.

Hi Craig, thanks for that. I know its going to take 1000 reps to get the correct feeling for each sequence. Letting go og my right arm through impact defo helps. Should i feel like the club is dropping into the hitting zone while im pushing my left heel into the ground during the follow through, while making sure im releasing the club from my left side. Im still stopping with weight shift to the right and to the left, as after 200 reps i still cant sequence all together without my right arm taking over. Changing these pathways are very difficult eh. Also should in the insides of my biceps on both arms stay connected to my body? Also should my left knee lock out out when im pushing my heel into the ground or is a little flex ok ?
June 1, 2017
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Stephen. I don't like to teach exact feels as they may contradict what you feel. But, one could say it feels like it is dropping into the hitting zone as you are pushing the lead heel into the ground. Changing motor pathways are very difficult. If there were a shortcut. Golf would be much easier. they are very stubborn. You should feel some connection between the upper bicep and upper pectoral. But, the arms will not be glued to your side. A little flex is okay. You don't want to lock out or snap back the lead knee. Straight, but not locked.

Assume I correctly squat and square, then I clear using my left obliques to pull and use ground to push up, then my swing prematurely turns and hence the club arc becomes a lot smaller and then only the club head toe hits the ball. This affects my one handed drills too. Physically it has to happen - I cannot see the answer. What muscles can I use to ensure that my club path and face remains neutral (swing arc does not prematurely finish) Do I use right obliques too?
May 8, 2017
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello GC. Usually the toe comes into play due to over rotation of the hand and not properly releasing. However, take a look at the Sledgehammer Video. Make sure your trail shoulder isn't pushing through impact to maintain extension.
May 8, 2017
64x64
GC
Now that the squat is fine and I use my oblique to help pull the hips and clear, my left hand also gets pulled and swerves to left of the target. The problem is that now only the toe of the club touches the ball (since the club head is being dragged too left by the oblique), and not the face. What's happening? How to solve this issue?
May 7, 2017
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello GC. Are you sure it's not the trail making it swerve left? I would try releasing the trail hand first. If you start swinging down the line. More of a trail side issue, than lead oblique. Vijay Release Drill.
May 8, 2017
64x64
GC
Definitely not my right side. If you turn your shoulders your left arm would move with the shoulder. If pull lead / left with my oblique, my hands will move naturally. You got the point, my hands are no longer down the line when I use my lead oblique, not trail.
May 8, 2017
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello GC. Focus then on keeping the chest pointing at the ball and the shoulders square through the release. If the lead shoulder isn't spinning open at impact it should help the release follow more down the line.

GC
Thank you for the quick reply. So the 1) obliques pull the upper body and arms into the correct impact position on the lead leg and 2) the hands and arms are quite passive in getting into the correct impact position 3) by forcing the hands into correct position, there may be an early release?
May 4, 2017
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello GC. Yes, the obliques and the core pull the upper body/arms into the correct position for impact. The hands and arms are quite passive to reach this point. If you manually try to force or speed up the hands to reach the proper position you can definitely start to have an early release.

Great videos. Few questions if you can please answer them specifically in the response! Thank you so much! 1. How does the secondary tilt work (esp with the head staying backwards)? Thought most of the time hands are directly vertically below head (at impact my hands are always wrongly below the head, rather than aligning with left glutes) 2. how does secondary tilt help the impact position? 3. for the right handed golfer how does the left oblique help to get the club in the impact correct position? What's the science? Does the left oblique pull the club to the correct position? In another words, if the left oblique does not turn, even if everything else goes correctly, the club impact will not be perfect like the video?
May 4, 2017
64x64
Chris (Certified RST Instructor)
Hey GC, glad to hear you are enjoying the videos. Secondary axis tilt is created from the hips shifting into neutral joint alignment and rotating while keeping the head in behind the golf ball. This allows the swing plane to shallow out. If you do not have enough secondary axis tilt, the club would be coming down very steeply into impact. The left oblique will help aid proper controlled rotation of the hips in the downswing. The science is that by rotating the hips and stabilizing the hips properly...this movement will be pulling the upper body down into the hitting area to release the club, just like any other hitting or throwing sport. If the obliques do not help rotate the hips out, then you are creating force of movement from some other part of the body (normally the hands and the arms) and you will not be using the kinetic chain to produce efficient clubhead speed. Hope that helps answer all your questions.

However when does the left wrist start to cup in the follow through as I've looked at Chuck's video on the self analysis and it appears to cup.

Sorry Chris...you guys all look the same. HAHAHA. Just kidding. I was commenting to (who I thought was Craig) about Chris's great side bend during/after release. I've had so very much trouble attaining this angle. I know it's important and most golfers don't seem to be aware of it. I've watched so many pro's and they all have a very big side bend. Almost as if they we skipping a rock on a lake. I think that move allows the hips to clear giving you an easy way to fully release and follow through. For me this tough because I'm old and not so flexible. I'm getting the. Also you need to allow your right leg to bend in a bit. I used to kind of keep it flexed near the bottom of the downswing. Not only does that make you come out of the shot it hurts. And by doing so you can't get your hips to open up. The hips get stuck making you flip. It's all connected. Screw up one part the rest goes wacky. Any tips on getting into the right side bend? I can't go real far over but now that I am I'm hitting the ball more solid and it's really easy to follow through and end up on your left side. I'll keep at it. Got 55 years of swinging wrong to undo.
September 26, 2016
64x64
Chris (Certified RST Instructor)
Hahah no problem at all and I am sure Craig would find it a compliment to look like me hahaha. jk jk. Achieving the correct sidebend should be created by the right side of the body doing nothing post impact and the club pulling you into a finish position. I would start out by losing the right hand at impact and keeping the head back and still until the lead arm reaches chest height. Then slowly start to keep the right hand on the club longer and longer and longer making sure there is no push from the right shoulder or arm through the hitting area causing you to lose sidebend. Hope that helps.

Something I've been wondering about are where are the video's on lateral side bend and keeping the right elbow bent during impact? When I watch Tiger, JB Holmes, Brian Harmon or just about any pro I notice they all make the same move during downswing. They keep their right elbow bent and have a lot of side bend. By doing this they keep the club face square before and all the way through impact. An excellent idea. This greatly increase consistency. They do not straighten out the right arm until well past impact. They also maintain the lateral bend through impact giving them a kind of an "upper cut" punch to the ball. A very powerful move. I'd love to learn how to do this.
September 21, 2016
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Paul. I agree there will be some lateral side bend. But, you don't want to keep the trail arm bent too far through impact or you will be losing speed. You have to release the club. They keep the club face square more with their lead hand than trail. Take a look at Throw the Club Head at the Golf Ball, Arms vs. Body Release, Sledgehammer, and the Throw the Ball Drill.

Hi Craig, What these video's suggest is to time the bottom of the release exactly at the time the club face squares up. That's a very bad idea. Almost no one can do that consistently. Watch a slow motion video of Dustin Johnson swing with driver. At impact his right arm is still bent quite a bit. He's one of the longest drivers on tour. What the pro's do is extend AFTER impact not before thus eliminating the need to perfectly time the release. What the pro's are doing is catching the ball in the middle of the release not at the end of the release. This business of trying to catch the ball at just the instant the club is fully released is a recipe for inconsistent ball striking. That's why the pro's will never do this. The analogy of snapping a towel is ridiculous. How could anyone expect to time such an event? Try and snap a towel at a golf ball and see what happens. You'll be lucky to catch the ball just at the end of the towel one in one hundred tries. Take a look at the photo on the wall of Tiger Woods in one of Chucks indoor videos. He's at impact yet his right arm is bent. Tiger has big side bend, stays down and by keeping his right arm in he lowers the swing plane to allow him to stay down. He finishes the release a foot after impact. They all do. As I said they want consistency and length. They have both by doing this move.
September 21, 2016
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Paul. I agree that the trail arm needs to have a slight bend at impact. But, you don't want to keep it bent too far through impact and into the follow through. The trail arm will straighten after impact. I wasn't trying to confuse you or suggest otherwise that it should be straight before impact. In my previous post I said you don't want to keep it too far through impact. I should have added that yes it will be bent at impact before straightening.

Hello Craig, Wow. I didn't have a video of me doing part one so I just went outside and made one. I was sure I wasn't moving my head in part one but I am. From about 8 oclock through impact my head moves up. I cannot feel this happening. Geez. What could that be from? I'm stumped. Thanks.

Hello Paul. When setup at impact position the head should stay relatively quiet. That has to be tension or push. Are you sure you are releasing properly? Are you adding any trail hand? What about doing the drill lead arm only?
August 29, 2016
64x64
Paul
Hey Craig, Interesting you suggest using just the lead arm. I thought the same thing so I went outside and tried it. Made two videos. In the first one I noticed I wasn't turning my hips on the backswing and was basically just taking the club back with my shoulders. In that video my head was almost perfectly still. After seeing the video and seeing I wasn't taking the club back properly I went out and did it again only this time I took the club back by turning my hips. Ah but now my head moves up again. Does this make sense to you? What's the connection? Thanks. Paul
August 29, 2016
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Part 1 should be only arm swing and staying in impact positioning. Without seeing it, I could only assume when you added rotation that the shoulders didn't rotate around the spine and/or you sat too much into the trail side you felt you needed to rise to make a strike.

Hi Craig, Okay so I tried again after watching the video. This time I did just what Chris said to do and I still am moving my head up a bit. Maybe an inch or two. Let me ask you this, when we set up for this drill should the left leg be fully extended. No bend at knee at all? This is very perplexing. Thanks Craig, Paul

Hello Paul. In Step 1 the lead leg will be straight, but not a snapped back locked position.

Hey Craig, Had a lesson with Steve Maes yesterday and he figured out what was going on. It was my right side getting involved. Once I stopped using my right arm my head stayed down pretty well. He has me pulling through with my left obliques with no arms. Felt really strange but after a few hundred reps I'm starting to see why this works. I'm 63 and when I was a kid we learned golf at the local public golf course. They taught us to push from the right. So for the last 55 years I've been swinging wrong. Lots of muscle memory to unlearn. Ha.

First video I've ever seen where the hip rotation is due mainly (solely?) to pushing left heel into the ground. Never thought about the downswing this way. In downswing, is there any conscious movement to rotate hips into striking ball? Like the video series so far. Thank you.

Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Gary. Posting up correctly with the lead leg will help move the lead hip back and away or otherwise clearing the hip. Most players won't need to train excessive or more hip rotation coming down with that move being proper (Step 2 - RST 5 Step System).

Great series. Works really well in conjunction with steps 2 to 5 of the 5 step series and in particular the core rotation and drills part. 2 questions. Firstly my left hip is a little sore from posting on it with e exercises. Is this normal when doing many reps of this first time? Second. I can release ok with my irons but my woods seem to get stuck behind me still and I am losing speed with them and pushing to the right. Any tips on this with the longer clubs? Ussually I would leave it but I have snatch tomorrow and will need to try and bring my woods in not he longer holes if possible. Thanks

Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Dave. Soreness is sometimes due to using new muscles. However, make sure you are pushing the lead hip socket against the hip wall (Preventing Hip Pain Video). Take a look at Proper Tee Height to check your setup with driver. Make sure you allow the club to release. Feel like the club is swinging past the chest. Let the club do the work for you.

Hi Craig, From my last review you said I increase my spine angle and pull my right shoulder down to get the club down from the top of backswing. Chris mentions in this video to keep your back to the target when shifting to the left. Should I try and keep my back to the target when I shift to the left? I tried it a couple of times today and it has improved my golf plane or angle of attack, In addition, is there any other drills that I can do so I don't increase my spine angle? I have just been drilling the left hand only drill and getting the feeling of the shifting, letting the club fall, swinging from the left shoulder socket and trying to keep my spine angle maintained. Thanks for your help. Stephen

Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Stephen. Feeling the shoulders stay passive or your back pointed a little longer towards the target in the downswing is perfectly acceptable. The Level Shoulders Drill, Winter Downswing Drill, LADD, and Frisbee Drill all focus on proper lead arm motion. Some of those talk about lag, but will help with not having too much secondary tilt as well.

Tom
When I push into the ground with my front leg do I push straight down? Do I push and try to spin on my heel or do I push and ry to turn my left oblique muscles? I believe it's the third choice. In watching some of the pros videos I see some of them spin their left heels. I'm guessing that it's mostly the pulling of the left oblique that causes the spin of the left heel. Please let me know which is correct for RST. Thanks!
January 24, 2016

Hello Tom. Third choice. Push/plant into the lead heel and allow the pull from the lead oblique to open the hips.

Greg
When I do this drill, I am leaving the club face slightly open. Could you give me some possible reasons for this? When I have an extremely light grip on the club or can feel some lag it seems to square up better.
January 16, 2016
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Greg. You might have too much emphasis on leverage pull from the ground. Getting the body pulling up too soon or quickly which would require more of a flip to square the club. But, with the light grip you can't flip it. Focus back on Part 1 for just a little bit and slowly add back the body components.

Great series! Just one question: when sitting into the lead side you don't appear to increase the flex in either leg; is this correct or is increasing the flex in the legs simply an advanced move?
January 13, 2016
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello James. You will sit into the lead glute/leg. However, for the training purpose of this drill you don't need to practice an exaggerated squat or flexion of the lead leg. Getting the big increase that you are referring to is more of an advanced type move.

Chris, I love the Impact series and feel like I have a completely revamped swing. I hit the ball real well before this series but I feel it will be more consistent and longer. I am stoked to get to the range and the course to see how it translates into actual competition. I do have a question on this video lesson though. You say, after you sit into the left heel and bring your hips into the square position, to push your heel into the ground. It seems you are saying to push BOTH heels into the ground and not just the right or left heel. Am I correct in this interpretation?
January 4, 2016
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Robert. Thanks for the compliments on Chris's Impact Series. Just focus on the push of the lead heel. You can add a little push from the right when the swing is mastered. But, most players way over use the motion.

Chris, when you push you lead heel into the ground and post up is this post up move the way you make the body stall and let the arms swing independently from the body or another way of saying it is the post up move is the way you stall the body. Thanks
December 15, 2015
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Anthony. The post up will help with the stall because your chain of direction will change from rotating horizontally to more moving vertically pulling leverage from the ground.

Corey
Around the 3:45 mark you mention that we should try to keep our back to the target when we shift back to the lead leg. I'm a little confused by this. Are we trying to keep our back and shoulders parallel to the target line? Or should my back be facing where we are trying to hit the ball (which doesn't right)? I appreciate your help.
December 3, 2015
64x64
Steven (Certified RST Instructor)
Corey-We keep our back towards the target early in the downswing so we are not spinning the shoulders in the downswing. We want the shoulders parallel to the target line at impact or square. If you don't spin your upper body then simply just shift your weight left. We find a lot of golfers use to much upper body in the downswing and when that happens the upper body spins and by keeping the back towards the target we avoid that.

Hi Craig, 1 and 2 of the impact series are training you to release the club correctly and getting a good impact position. What helped me with 1 and 2, is when Chris said letting the hand fall. However, in part 3 of the impacts series, its hard to get the feeling of the hand falling into impact. Is the purpose of this drill geared more to the body doing the majority of the work? In the full swing are we going to have a straight left leg when the club is at the trail thigh and will we release like all the release videos with the hand falling and knuckles turning down into impact. Thanks for your help. Stephen
November 17, 2015
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Stephen. The purpose is to train the body to do the work as you allow the wrist to rotate freely. Ultimate energy through the release and using leverage from the ground. Yes, it is as you describe however the lead leg won't straighten until impact. It won't be completely straight yet when the hands are at the trail thigh positioning.

I have a question about the left wrist bowing downwards during the transition: When I do the small swing drills, I can really feel the lead wrist bowing downwards during transition, like the video how to hit a low shot. Not to be confused with wrist cock. Is this called "Float Loading?, or is that only for wrist cock" I went to the range and my swing is pretty good at the top. However, I really felt like my left wrist hinging on the downswing like a paint brush, and on video I shallowed the shaft for the first time. Am I reading this all wrong?
November 11, 2015
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Jay. If you are keeping the wrist soft and using (pull, weight shift) from the lead side you should be ok. Float loading would be a little bit more manual trying to create the downcock.

Hi I would like to check with you how the weight shifts to the lead heel from the sequence perspective? In the takeaway, the weight goest first to the front inside of the trail foot before going completely on the trail heel during the completion of the backswing. In the transition, is the weight immediately shifting to the lead heel or is it at the very beginning (just for a split moment) moving to the outside front of the lead foot before going to the lead heel? The two moves produces very different feelings and I am trying to determine what is correct. Thanks a lot
November 6, 2015
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Marc. You don't want the weight rocking to the outside of the lead heel. It will be more similar to the takeaway and backswing shift.

I used to push with my trail leg in the downswing which led me to loosing my tush line. By pushing on you lead heel, which sends my lead hip back, I am now able to keep my tush line, which is great. One question I have whether I should feel that I rotate my lead hip to the point where it can not longer go anywhere with a straight leg or if I rotate it through the action of the lead leg straightening but not to the point of blockage. I struggle to explain what I mean so I will use the analogy of your 30 60 90 video; do I straighten the leg and turn the hip to the "100" level or the "90" level?
October 30, 2015
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Marc. You don't want to push towards blockage because nothing in the swing should be locked or contrived. So, with your example "90" not "100".

Hi Are you just pushing with the left heal or both heals?
October 29, 2015
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Marc. Advanced players can add a little push from the trail heel for speed and hip usage. However, for this drill and purposes of training a good impact position. Stick with just the lead heel push.
October 29, 2015
64x64
Marc
Actually, I found that if I also push with the trail heel, I avoid firing the trail leg / knee in the direction of the target, which can has all kind of nasty consequences. By pushing with the trail leg, I am able to keep my trail foot longer on the floor. Does it make sense?
October 30, 2015
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Marc. It doesn't make sense. But, sometimes that is golf . I think the awareness of what you are doing with the trail leg is helping ensure the trail foot doesn't push too early.

Great series - I've been playing golf for many years and never really understood correct release ( ie. rotation of left wrist) until now. My question is - I can understand using rotation on a full shot but on the course faced with a chip or mid pitch shot with a wedge, would you not want to hold the face square at impact and not turn it over?
October 26, 2015
64x64
Chris (Certified RST Instructor)
Hey Brian -- Very glad to hear you are enjoying the series and finding it useful. For chip shots, there are several different techniques that can be used. Typically, the lead wrist is still controlling all aspects of the clubface and you will tend to delay the release a bit. Check out the short game section for further clarification.

Soren
HI Chris, good stuff! 2 questions. - Do you make any adjustments when using a driver or eg. 4 iron, or a pitching wedge? And would you do the exercises with one club - I tend to have a tough time getting a downward stroke, compression and hence a divot. Can you explain what movement makes that the club, which at adress is even to the ground, at impact seems longer and therefore makes a divot? thx Soeren
October 26, 2015
64x64
Chris (Certified RST Instructor)
Hey Soren, when drilling this way, there should be no real adjustments to the movements made. Your spine angle may change a fraction at the address position based on the length of the club, but that is really it. It is easier to start with a 7 or 8 iron with these drills for sure. The club feeling longer and taking this divot could be from not enough secondary axis tilt, too much lag or the head moving out in front a bit.

At about 7:15 in the video Chris says to push the heel into the ground but do not snap the left leg into a straight position. Doesn't pushing against the ground cause the left leg to straighten? Thanks.
October 25, 2015

Chris (Certified RST Instructor)
Yes, the pushing of of the heel into the ground and clearing the lead hip will move the leg to a straight position. But its passive (relaxed position).

My guess is that felling tightness in my right obliques going back is also going to result in tightness in my left obliques thru impact assuming I maintain my spine angle?
October 24, 2015
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Warren. Feeling the obliques back and through means you are using the core and "box" muscles. They will help facilitate a better rotation of the trunk. The engaged feeling is normal.

Hi Chris. Love this series. My only question here is about keeping the head level. Can you talk a little about this? I know it can move a little side to side, but I always tried to keep it level. Is this incorrect? Thanks very much!
October 23, 2015
64x64
Chris (Certified RST Instructor)
Hey Steven, when we sit into the left side, you will see the head drop just a tiny bit. This allows us to keep the hips back and sets us up for a bit more leverage from the ground. Staying level is not a bad thing but just make sure you are keeping your hips back when moving into the left side. You can add a bit of a squat the more you become proficient at the drill.

Chris: When you say push into the ground with your heels, is it both heels, left, or right? Since I have already made a shift to my left side (heel) it seems to be I would pushing into the ground with my left heel only. this also allows my right foot to come up on my toe as I complete the follow through.
October 23, 2015
64x64
Chris (Certified RST Instructor)
Hey Byron, yes, focus on driving just the lead heel into the ground and allow the trail foot to react accordingly. Try to leave the trail heel down as long as possible so it feels as though the club is pulling you up into a finish position.

This is the easiest of questions. What hotel is that over your right shoulder? Don't worry. I have a golf question too. I'm in the northeast and the season is almost over. I was messing around and was swinging with my left arm only thru impact. The club seem to have moved A LOT faster. Am I imagining it? So if it is true, can the right arm be slowing things down?
November 7, 2015
64x64
Chris (Certified RST Instructor)
Hey David, That is the Ritz- Carlton over my right shoulder and over the left shoulder is the JW Marriott. Both awesome hotels and we are happy to be a part of their facilities. Sounds like you are starting to get the correct feel of the body doing all of the heavy lifting and the release being a byproduct of good sequencing. When we get the right hand on there, it can tend to shut the body down from doing its work and cause you to throw the club early with no speed in the hitting area. So, you could just be getting some good progress from you hard work! Keep it up
November 8, 2015

The objective of this weeks video is to just add a little bit of rotation and a little bit of leverage from the ground. We're going to start to use our legs a little bit more to help ramp that speed up and hopefully we will get some good progress like we've been seeing around the site.

                So if you're ready to add some more speed to it, let's go and get started.

                Okay, guys. So last week we worked on adding a little bit of weight shift to our release to help create a little bit more momentum and we allowed you guys to get away with a little bit more movement from your head position and the reason being is is that if we focus on too many areas of the golf swing at one time becomes very difficult from a proprioception level wise to be able to accomplish what the main task were. And really what we're trying to do is, our focus point was going to be on the lead wrist and hitting area and making sure that we were transferring our weight. That's a really big crux of the golf swing is that amateur golfers don't tend to like to shift their weight enough.

                So now this week our objective is is to add a little bit of rotation to the mix and get some good force from the ground. And I know a lot of you golfers have seen Bubba Watson and are some of these other players like Matt Every where they come way up on their toes when they're swinging their drivers and the reason for that is that they're using their legs to push down into the ground, so in turn what they're doing is their body is going up and the club is going down. That's helping extend the radius.

                Now we're not going to be doing it of that magnitude in today's golf swing drill. We're still trying to keep things under control and we're just going to be adding a little bit of rotation to it as well.

                Okay, guys. So in step one of this new drill that we're going to be adding a little bit of rotation and a little bit of ground force, we're going to start without a golf club this week. So, we're going to aim for probably anywhere between 50 and a 100 reps done without the golf club so that you can make sure that these movements are perfect first, because now you got to think of it this way. We had very few moving parts at first. We had just the left wrist moving in the very first video. In the second video, we added a little bit of weight shift to add. Now, we're going to have those two components mixed with a little more of a body movement here and a little bit more of a focus point with what your lead hip is going to be doing down the impact area.

                What this drill is going to look like for now ... We're going to put the club in our hands here in just a minute. Go ahead and get into your normal setup here, normal golf posture. Two inches outside of neutral joint alignment. Cross your arms over your shoulders, and what we're going to do is we're going to make just a one inch shift of our hips to the right. Just about a one inch shift to where you feel about let's call it 70 to 80% of your weight right into that right heel. Right into your right heel, right ankle area.

                Then what I want you to do is I want you to keep your right knee flexed and facing forward. So we make that small shift and then you're going to just turn your body to about 45 degrees. So 45 degrees of rotation here, maintaining the flex in the knees. What I don't want you to do is I don't want this right leg to go straight, because you won't feel contraction in your glute muscles back here. If you maintain that flex, what it's going to do is it's going to inhibit, it's going to restrict the amount of rotation that you have and it's going to help you load your glute muscles up.

                So again from the line, small shift, and you can see that my shoulders have rotated about 45 degrees or so, my hips have only wound up about maybe five to ten degrees. So you're going to start with that first, loading up your trail side, and then what we're going to be doing here is we're going to do our best to make sure that when we sit back over into our lead side, we're going to try to keep our back to the target. So you can see that my shoulders did unwind, but what happened there was because I was focused on moving my weight into my left heel, you can see that my hips are starting to pull my shoulders.

                So from a face-on perspective, load up, I'm going to shift my weight into my heel, and now you can see that my hips and knees are back to a square position, my shoulders are still pretty closed. Now as I start to push the heel into the ground, you can see that my shoulders have been pulled back to square and I'm back in that impact position that we started to talk about in the beginning part of the week.

                What you're going to be looking for at this position, again just to refresh you, is that 80% of your weight is on your lead foot, 20% or so is on your trail foot, head's behind the golf ball, so that's going to have enough tilt to where your spine's just outside your lead knee, hips are open about 30 to 40 degrees at this point now because we're using ground force and the more you push into the ground the more your hips are going to start to unwind.

                Okay, so 30 to 40 degrees and shoulder line should be nice and square. So let me demonstrate that for you again. Small shift right, right knee flexed, try to hold your back to the target or your shoulders wound, shift left or sit into that left side, clear the hips, arms down in front of you.

                Do that 50 to a 100 reps and then we're going to slowly add the club back to the mix. So let's look at part two now.

                Okay, gang. So here we are at part two and our objective for these next 900 reps, because we just did 50 to a 100 reps of our body movements alone, is to still focus on making sure that the other two parts are still in line. Okay, we're just going to do a little bit of cleaning up of the overall head movement and we're going to get us onto a really good sound impact position and we're just going to add a couple of other moving pieces here.

                Now, the one big thing I want you to understand is that if you feel like you're starting to see some breakdown in your lead wrist or you feel like you're having a hard time with weight shift, don't be afraid to pump the breaks here, pull yourself back, do several reps of those other drills and then slowly add in these other pieces. Sometimes it feels like we're kind of rubbing our belly and patting our head at the same time and I don't want to add too many pieces in here that are going to confuse you. That was the whole point of not using the club at first for this part of the drill because, again, we're now adding rotation and we're adding a big move from the legs at the bottom half of the swing.

                Now, let's get into the drill here. We've just spent our time working on our body movements. We're going to focus on making that small shift to the right, keep your right knee flexed and you're going to turn your body to about 45 degrees. So a couple of little check points I want you to focus on here is, number one, both arms should be fairly straight and relaxed. Don't get your right arm really bent, but also notice that I have a little bit of wrist set here. I don't have the club perfectly parallel to the ground. Got a little bit more set. For those of you that want to add a little bit more of elevation to get your hands at about chest height, that's perfectly fine, but what I want you to focus on now from this point is, we're going to sit and we're going to try to keep our arms and shoulders where they are into our left heel. Now you can see my head move back to its original position, my hips and knees have come back to a square position. Remember, my hips were wound up at about 5-10 degrees or so and then they come back to a square position. So that movement alone is starting to pull the shoulders and the arms.

                So here I am at that wide spot, okay, I'm going to sit left, keep my heads quiet now, push the heel in the ground and then I'm going to release. And when I tell you to push the heel in the ground, I really want you to be able to feel like you're driving that heel into the ground as hard as you can. I don't want you snapping your knee straight. I want you just to feel like you're pushing it into the ground.

                Now, if you notice here from a down the line perspective, if I just push my heel into the ground and I got enough weight over there, you're going to see the hips start to rotate.

                If you have enough awareness of your mid-section, where you can feel your obliques, then you can use your lead side obliques to help move or rotate the hip back towards center. So that would be towards your spine. You want to feel like you're pulling the hip away from the target, but you also want to make sure that you've got enough weight into that side because otherwise you run the risk of getting way back here, you can over-rotate the hips and then we have mess of issues on our hands. A lot of you know what it's like to be hip spinners.

                So again, drill's going to look like small baby shift right, rotate our body, sit in the left heel, keep the head quiet, and grab and release.

                This is going to help add a lot of speed to it. So I'm going to go ahead and get into what it looks like once you've done enough reps to where you don't feel like you have to pause. So I'm going to go ahead and try to tie it all together now. Let's look at that again. Small shift. There you go. You can see that I'm starting to add a lot more speed to it. You can hear the sound of it. This is a good drill now to start to get some more moving parts to it. Now when we get into the final step of this, you can really have a ton of speed in it and you still have all that control that we worked to get in the first place.

                All right, guys, let's get out there. Let's put it to use. Thousand reps is our goal this week. Let us know if you have any questions at all. We'll help you along the way. Let's make it a great day.
