Core Rotation - Left Arm - Club - RSA

This is a demonstration video for the new RotarySwing Academy video golf instruction series. This series will literally guide you through learning the RotarySwing step by step in the shortest time possible. You simply have to do little more than follow along with me as I do the drills that will turn you into a ball striking machine! This is the original RSA follow along video and it was a HUGE hit! The reason? It covers the 3 main things that ALL amateur golfers struggle with. Learning how to power the swing with your trunk instead of your arms, how to integrate your left arm into that movement, and combining the club and left arm together in one perfect golf swing. If you struggle with over the top, too much hit from the top, losing lag, no power and sequencing the swing, this one program will help you make HUGE strides in your swing.

Is there a to do list or a set program to work on in the overall game plan. I need an agenda, right now it appears to be like lots of ideas , but no focus on what one needs to do each week. Such as Monday, work on these setup, 10 reps, transition 15 reps. Next practice 5 foot putts, 50 times, next practice 30, 50, 75 yards pitches.

Hello Stephen. I don't have a plan for your putting routine on the site currently. However, I would suggest a swing review. That way one of the instructors can tailor the plan to you. In the meantime, have you mastered setup? Core rotation? Let me know what stage you are in and I will try to help you out.

Dear sweet baby Jesus, this drill and the tempo training drill (and of course the perfect setup drills) is worth the price of admission alone! No where near having those drills mastered but I've added some serious distance and shockingly straight ball flights to both my irons and driver. I'm talking 2 clubs extra distance with what feels like half the effort. #DrinkingTheRSAKoolaid

So finally finished my 3K on the setup drill which is a great feeling and 1K into this one. I'm not sure where/how to ask but is there some details in which order we should be doing both the RSA cheat sheet and RST 5 step? Then now Chuck is introducing the DEAD drill boot camp. Assuming that we get that as RSA members. So now I'm just a little confused as to what I should be working on. I would submit a weight shift video but I'm nowhere near being through weight shift and you guys will just tell me to work on weight shift drills. I mean....I'm not trying to rush but I'm confused on the order of things.

Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Craig. After getting a baseline of your swing. Your instructor should detail out exactly what he wants to see next time. My suggestion is to follow the 5 Step Program. If you know your swing faults and have the setup down correctly. For Ex: You know that you don't shift weight properly. Upload a Step 2 - Core Rotation Drill. Let's check to make sure it is correct and then build from there.

When practicing the core drills (section 1.18) You take it to the range. Would that my weather permitted that. So I practice indoors using plastic balls that seem to come off the club much like the real thing. Any thoughts about this? PS I plan to get my wife to do a video soon she has been very busy of late,

Hello David. I prefer starting off with plastic balls indoors. It helps you start to implement the new movement pattern without the distraction of too much ball flight.

Hello Kaleb. Proper Muscle Activation Video. In the beginning, you may have some tension due to using new muscles. But, that should subside. I would also check out My Golf Backswing Secrets Video to understand how momentum should help you stay relaxed.

Andrew
Just curious. There seems to be two methods for creating the backswing on this site, albeit they create the same result. There is the 5 minutes to the perfect takeaway and 5 minutes to the perfect backswing method (which is used i the clinic video series too), and here, we are concentrating on rotation and the lead arm swinging back by the momentum of the rotation. Does it matter which method/drills we use if the result in the same or are we supposed to be blending both. I have recently passed the rotation stage in my swing reviews and now asked to add the lead arm.
January 26, 2019
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Andrew. Both are two ways at skinning the same cat. One is more mechanical and the other is a little less thought provoked. I would use a blend of both in the beginning to see which works best. But, the end result should be the same.

When for decades you have begun your swing with hands, arms, shoulders, hips, etc. on the way back it is very difficult to transition to a core rotation swing? What is the "feel" of the first move away from the ball?
January 11, 2019
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Michael. Weight shift is a very good trigger to keep loose while starting off the ball ( My golf Backswing Secrets Video). However, take a look at the 5 Minutes to Master Rotation. You should really feel core (abs/obliques).
January 11, 2019

Dan
I find there are two different ways to rotate that I flip flop back and forth between, trying to figure out which one is correct. One way is a heavy focus on pulling the shoulder blade around behind me. The other is rotating the rib cage using the obliques. Since origin of movement is so very important, I assume one is correct and the other is not. This video seems heavy on the rib cage rotation and feeling the obliques. I currently lean toward this video being "more correct." I feel constriction in my core/breathing when I do the rotation this way as opposed to how I normally pull my shoulders behind me. Again, I assume this is more correct. Am I right about that?
August 2, 2019
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Dan. Both will be working. One isn't more correct than the other. However, like the 5 Minutes to Master Rotation Video. Feeling the obliques initially will be easier and you continue to pull the trail shoulder behind the head. Most players when feeling the rib cage still are using the shoulder blade glide, but don't tend to over do it that way.
August 2, 2019
64x64
Dan
Is it a good or bad sign that my breathing gets restricted when focusing on turning from the obliques instead of the shoulders? (You're absolutely right in that my shoulders still move. My shoulder blade still glides. But turning the rib cage tends to limit my shoulder retraction, which is often an issue for me, I think.) But how about that breathing? Is that ok to be a little out of breath at the conclusion of the swing?
August 2, 2019

Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Dan. If you are recruiting muscle fiber and engaging the core. You can tend to squeeze the lungs a little bit and have shortness of breath.

Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Christopher. Start the process slowly. When adding a ball start with a shorter swing, or much slower pace. Break it down until you can get the proper mechanical move with a ball. Don't worry about the results. Get the sequence and motion correct.

I just bought the RSA. This video is a great P90Xish style. However, I really am in need of the other half of this movement (to the left). I am surprised there isn't one I can find. The next video after this is Power Release for advanced users. The videos don't seem to be listed in a logical progression. What video an I supposed to watch next to practice the left movement?

Should these drills be done in both directions (right handed & left handed) to balance the work on the core muscles?
October 20, 2017

Hello Charles. Balance is a good thing with the body. But, no need to perform this particular drill in both directions. As to not train the shoulders to rotate through on your opposite side.

Ramu
I am struggling little bit to keep the hips quiet in the early part of the backswing. Even a tiny movement causes some issues...any tips to keep them quiet at the initiation of the backswing..thanks a lot, Ramu
June 7, 2017
64x64
Micah (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Ramu, During the back swing focus on the trail shoulder blade gliding in and slightly down towards the spine. Imagine that the shoulder blade glide is the force that pulls the lead shoulder, chest, core, and hips in that order. Let the rest of your body and its movement be dictated by the pull of the trail shoulder blade glide. If that doesn't help, imagine your legs are locked in casts while engaging the glute muscles. The the glutes stabilize the hips and when engaged they will limit too much movement.
June 9, 2017
64x64
Ramu
Thanks Micah...I get the body turn right but when I have the club in the hands I need to take it a bit outside the target line to keep turning the body to feel the weight in the right glutes. If I try to keep inside the target line, I tend to pick up the club resulting in improper turn. My question is .. is it okay to take the club a bit outside the target line during takeaway with the right shoulder glide? Thanks

Am really struggling with the elevation part. According to my reviews I rotate well on the take away but then the lead arm continues to rotate with my shoulders and I end up really flat. How/when should I initiate the elevation? What is the body movement and/or feeling I should aim for with my arms/trunk?
March 5, 2017
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Stephen. There is gradual elevation beginning in the takeaway. Take a look at the Pool Noodle Drill, Understanding Shoulder Elevation, 4 Square Drill and the Winter Golf Training Program - Backswing for more help. You should feel the arms work vertical as the body rotates horizontal.

Is this videoing depicting Step 2 (rotation with weight shift) of the 5 step system? If so, I'm just wondering why Chuck is not including the move back to the left as he does in the Step 2 drill demonstration. Thanks.
February 9, 2017
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Barry. Training motor patterns is a challenge. The brain doesn't like to establish new movement patterns once they are locked into place. There isn't any additional information in the video because the focus was to solely change the movement and neural pathway of the backswing. Once, that is ingrained. Then, it would be simpler to add the downswing portion.

Ive done many reps, and am getting some soreness at the top of my spine/along spine, would this be an indication of not allowing my hips to rotate enough while doing this drill?
January 31, 2017

Hello Kevin. I would check your axis tilt (Necktie Drill) and make sure you are allowing for the proper load/hip turn (Weight Shift Video Part 2).

I have subscribed to several pro networks and watch videos from all, but I keep returning to Rotary Swing. I can understand the finite steps you bring the swing into, and am improving steadily. This one with exercises is one of the best you have, as it relates the swing to the body parts/motions needed to make it happen

I feel I need to pull my right shoulder that extra amount after I'm done my rotation to be able to see it in the reflection. Wont pulling my right shoulder back to rotate cause some separation from the obliques? Or is focusing on having the right shoulder driving the rotation enough to keep everything together?
January 28, 2017
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Kevin. You should be okay keeping it together driving it back. However, remember rotation isn't your sole power source. If it is causing pain or simply messing up the sequence. You want to keep the focus on using all your power sources (How to Maintain Club Head Speed as You Get Older Video).

Konstantin
Hi, do I understand it well that essentially the core movement controls the path of the club head? When doing this drill I realised that because of the left hand dominance of the movement I don't trust the path of the club head i.e. I don't believe that it goes where I want and hits the ball. That's why in real swing I hit with right hand so that my feeling is that I can control the direction of the head. I know I t is in my head only. What practice could you recommend to switch off this strong urge of controlling club movement with arms? Many thanks!
December 20, 2016
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Konstantin. There isn't too much of a shortcut to turn the brain off from the controlling the movement with the trail side. In the clinics or lessons we urge players to get comfortable hitting lead arm only shots until they trust the movements actually produce quality results of where the club head goes. The 5 Step System is your best bet at beating this. You want the inside swinging the out. Essentially, using the core movements and bigger muscles will allow the club head to swing on the proper path.

Hi can I clarify something at the start of the drill. If we keep spine tilt as we turn back am I right that our head moves backwards away from the ball a little. It seems like chucks head does in this drill. But I ask because when I watch his slow motion swing in other videos his head doesn't seem to move off the ball at all. Grateful for any advice!
December 18, 2016

Love this site. As I'm working with my takeaway I'm feeling like the very beginning is 2 separate movements...weight shift, then rotate. Is this a typical feeling golfers have as they work on this and should it ultimately all "feel" like the same movement after repetition?
December 18, 2016

Chuck, I am avid fan of yours and Rotary Swing. I started playing 7 months ago and have been working on my game since that time. I have leant a lot from your website, which, by the way, is incredible value for money. That said, I was getting nowhere with my swing until I started watching this new practice take away drill, plus submitting a video to your team for analysis. I was regularly hitting 110, now that is getting below 100. There is still much to do. Regarding feedback on the video you have posted. Brilliant. I want something that is akin to an exercise video. One I can switch on, and follow for 10 minutes a day. I can copy you for those 10 minutes. Minimal introduction, or talking, but that takes me through the drills. I hope this helps. WRmest regards, Edward from Cairo, Egypt.

Am unable to get the trail shoulder behind my head without significant hip turn which then staightens my trail leg. The squat then moves the trail hip closed. What gives?
December 14, 2016
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Barry. It sounds like a little of a flexibility issue. If you are unable to achieve the full turn. RST puts the focus of power on using all your power sources. Not just solely rotation from the shoulders for speed (How to Maintain Club Head Speed as You Get Older Video). I would rotate as far as you can without over rotating the hips. To where when you add a squat the hips don't have to rotate to a more closed positioning,

Yuefeng
Another great video! It's interesting to notice that even when Chuck demonstrates the left arm only backswing, the hand tends to push out a bit in front (from DTL view) during takeaway, whereas in two-arm swing it never happens. For me, the two handed backswing actually look exactly the same as left arm backswing (i.e. hands tend to push out a bit in front). Really wonder if there is anything active from the right hand that helps do away this?
December 12, 2016
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Yuefeng. Not really. The tendency with the lead only and momentum get the arm swinging a bit higher initial for some players. When the trial is on it helps curtail that quick momentum to elevate. I would say focus on a smooth blend of trail side pull instead of a quick burst. It should help keep from going out too early.

Hi Chuck. Congratulations! Excellent training-video 1, with which we can train an build a swing step by step. My swing looks better, feeling improves. I am looking forward for video 2 (start downswing and weight shift to the lead side, which I consider as difficult). Do we get an email-message, when it is out? Additional Question: Rightside domination: In my swing I often struggle with rightside domination. Unfortunately starting downswing with pushing from the right side (shoulder, arm, hand). It is psychological and then physical. (A) My brain tells me that I have to hit hard to hit the ball e.g. 180m with I4, so the physical stronger right side pushes instead of (B) the left side relaxed pulling with the weight of club head in sync. Do you have tips videos, to improve 1. psychological approach as well as 2. left arm, hand strength and feeling, to switch from a right domination push to left domination pull? (like toothbrushing with left )?
December 11, 2016

Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Michael. The membership will receive an email when the next cycle is introduced. We don't have any psychological videos to help with trail side passiveness. There are plenty of lead arm only drills on the site (Frisbee Drill, Step 3 - 4, Reshaping Your Swing for Lag, Cure Chicken Wing, etc). I would suggest working your way through the 5 Step System to completely turn the trail side off.

I've been working hard on freeing up my hands/arms/shoulders from tension and just yesterday started to focus on getting my body rotation/weight shift to initiate and control the swing, instead of my arms and hands dominating everything. As I was working, I wondered if I should be rotating back and almost dragging (in a sense) the club behind so that it feels like my rotation is occurring before my arms ever got to the top. This video, by magic, just popped up and answered my question immediately (I must have viewed it before but wasn't ready to hear the message). It gave me a much better sense of the arms reacting to the body movement. Fantastic.

Chris (Certified RST Instructor)
Hey Carole, Glad to hear this video helped you out. After doing your swing review, you are are on the right path to some good stuff. Weight shift and body turn are the 2 BIG moving parts of the golf club in the takeaway and backswing. There is some subtle elevation of the arms during the takeaway and backswing, right arm flexion into the backswing and gradual rotation of the wrists and forearms during the entire swing. Good luck and keep up the great work.

Hi Chuck, Just got your email regarding feedback for this series. This is a fantastic idea, and I love this first video. I'm a good golfer (hdcp 3), but I've been plagued by often not getting a complete and total shoulder turn. At 7:52-7:55 in the video, that was a shocker. It's literally exactly what I've been doing, with resultant loss of power, trying to hit the ball harder, etc. I know that there are other videos on the site that address starting the backswing and weight shift, but this really hit home. By not only doing this exercise, but attending to the feeling that this movement causes let's me really get it. Thanks, Jeff

I get the core rotation piece and I get the concept of using my core movement to place the arms. However my rotational movement must be wrong because when I practice the move with my arms/club they seem to naturally fall into a flat position with the club falling across the line. I have been rotating using the feeling of the right shoulder being pulled back behind me but should the feeling be more a vertical incline - when I practice a more vertical turn/rotation my arms appear to be 'thrown' more on an upwards/on plane motion?
November 30, 2016
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Stephen. I don't think you need to try a feel the shoulder rotation more on a vertical incline. But, allowing the momentum to help you swing the club up. Take a look at the Winter Golf Training Program - Backswing Video as a follow up for help.

Please let me know whether elevation of my arms at the time of take away to back swing taking the club out.? how to cure this out the in resulting a fade.

Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Ashar. If you over elevate in the takeaway it can lead to the arms raising too soon and leading you towards the possibility of being too trail side dominant in the downswing swing resulting in over the top.

When i pull from my right shoulder, my takeaway goes inside as against the four box drill. Result is that i started hooking or playing to the left. With increase of every club up-till driver it goes worse. in my last review, i was asked to keep my spine away from the target. What is meaning of that. any video.

Hello Ashar. If you were told to keep the spine away from the target. More than likely you are losing your tilt at the top of the backswing. Take a look at the Importance of Axis Tilt Video and the Necktie Drill.

November 17, 2016

Hello Joel. The RotaryConnect would be better. You would start engaging some muscles not necessary in the swing to keep the knees stable.

Excellent approach. Kinda like following a bouncing ball. Do as I do. Youngsters learn visually and we older folk can do the same. Have a question though. When loading the right glut you tend to sit down slightly. This has also helped me keep the right side of my tush from moving forward (former hip swinger). Can this move replace the squat move you emphasize in starting the downswing? Since you are lower, shifting left can then start the momentum down, making the move left and then rotating? This seems simpler to me. Would appreciate your comments. Thanks, John Kurtz
November 17, 2016

Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello John. As long as you get the weight into the lead side and keep the glutes engaged. You shouldn't require much more squat to be in a good position.

I've been a member off and no for a few years and have not felt like I needed to comment until now. I tried this core exercise and, I rotate pretty well and have focused on rotation. That said, since refocusing on this exercise and using it on the course, my timing, ball contact and distance has definitely improved and it has helped my scoring. So, keep these everyday exercises coming. Buzz

Good session! I hate to say this, but it's estimated that for a muscle movement to become "automatic", it takes about 7,000 repetitions. Which is to say, "Doint anything special for the next week and a half?" pk

I love this concept, especially with Chuck taking us through over 100 reps while we watch him and our positions in a mirror. The extra detail in regards to what we should be feeling in the obliques and glutes was extremely helpful. This will be a huge aid to improving, once each video is pieced together allowing easy follow along and progression through all parts of the swing. Well done!!

It's been a while since I checked my RST files. All I was trying to say was with your large following, if we all decided to do these drills, y'all would have a boatload of swings to review. Hat's off to you, again. Peter Kennedy M.D.

The original mail that came with this "There will be a series of videos that you would follow along and perform these drills every day for two weeks, then submit video of you doing the drills to get "check off" approval to move on to the next set of videos." This suggests we get reviewed before progressing seems like a lot to do in short time frame was all..great video though.

Hello Peter. Gotcha. The suggestion is to use your 2 per month swing review of you performing the drill. That way one of our instructors can make sure you are performing the drill correctly before you jump to the next set of drills. We understand it will be a big load of swings. Nothing we can't handle though. Thanks for the compliments on the video and glad I was able to help answer your question.

Appears yesterday's comment didn't make it. Basically my question has to do with how the back swing is initiated. You suggested it starts with pulling the right shoulder back then later said this activity was core driven. By the way way, I like what you're onto here. John Schoonover

Hello John. Glad you liked the video. I apologize you didn't receive a response. The trail shoulder blade is pulled by the core muscles. Lats, lower and middle fibers of the traps. You are using the trail shoulder and the obliques.

Fantastic exercise and backswing training video! Your demonstration of flexing the right leg a little more to activate the right glute seems to get me in a good squat position at the top of the backswing. Then when I shift my weight to lead side and straighten my lead leg and release, the additional swing speed is significant. Is this the right move? It feels like a squat to square move but it starts in my case with the added right leg flex as I reach the top of my backswing. Thanks.

This video is a good start and I'm very interested in seeing how this approach progresses. In my opinion golf instruction has gotten way too complicated. You can watch young guys and girls with lovely swings who have not been bombarded with the countless magazines, websites etc that us older golfers subscribe to. The instruction seems to have been made so complicated that we amateurs find it so difficult to improve. Unfortunately I think this website is also over complicated with the hundreds and hundreds of videos. If you do continue with this simple approach you MAY achieve what most sites, magazines and often useless training aids have not achieved, IMPROVING THE GOLF OF YOUR SUBSCRIBERS, time will tell.

Apologies Chuck I wasn't tying to be negative about your instruction website. I'm sure you have seen great improvement but again I feel instruction in general is extremely over complicated. I know from my club, my friends and golf outings I play that the level in general is not improving. I also believe the PGA have also voiced that concern. I think the proof is in the responses you have here. Everyone loves simple instruction, whether it be golf, other sports, school or work. You have simplified part of the golf swing that most of us have seen hundreds of videos on or read countless articles on. That is a huge step forward in golf instruction.

Clarity of explanation is excellent it is consistent with all videos For those who are new to the site 1.

Hey Chuck. Nice video. You almost "matter-of-factly- mentioned not jamming your chin into the left arm. I realized I had been doing that.

November 13, 2016

John
Early in the presentation, you suggested to start the backswing move by pulling the right shoulder back (like that feeling). Then later you said that backswing movement is done with the core. Also, will you be doing anything with the mental part of this difficult game? JS
November 13, 2016
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello John. To my knowledge, we don't have any mental videos upcoming. As to the turning aspect. You use the oblique and trail shoulder to help rotate. The trail shoulder is pulled by the lats and lower/middle muscle fibers of your traps. All are still located in the core.

Quite superb. More like this please. Only improvement I would suggest for this particular video is to have a reminder about what it means to be "in the box". I found this to be a somewhat confusing subject when I first came across it, I think this drill will help by turning it into a specific workout/set of feelings. One other comment. I have found that some specific mobility workouts very helpful both for golf and just generally feeling better. A physio recommended the MobilityWOD as examples, I am sure there are more. I appreciate there will be commerical issues around it but some specific drills from a source like this to help, for example: improve shoulder mobility, reduce spinal curvature or be able to perform movements such as squats with good form would help complement a series like this.

For me this is the missing link, it helps me stay focused while working along to it, and gives immediate feedback, should be available for each drill. My take is, RST focuses on incremental learning, this method helps to identify your readiness to move on to the next drill/stage. I think the whole system would benefit from this approach. IMO THIS IS A GREAT INNOVATION AND A MASSIVE IMPROVEMENT-THANKS.

I hope, this is the right place to ANSWER YOUR QUESTION: I do all your drills at home with a mirror but no camera/video. Every 2/3 weeks I go to my local pro and have him videotape me, so I know what to correct. I have no tools to provide these videos to you. If I were to be allowed to see the next stage only when I send you my videos, I'd be cut off your program.

Hi Chuck. Really great video to correlate with the rest of the rotary system. Put in the right order/ sequence, it provides a great complement between seeing what you need to do, then actually doing what you need to do (with clarification/checkpoints). Keep adding them and I think you provide a lot more value to your subscribers. I also think you will reduce the number of questions/inquiries that people post that you've probably answered thousands of times already. Bottom line: thumbs up. Tom

I like the "follow along" approach for a couple of reasons. It helped me to actually do the drill for the duration of the video instead of seeing a drill as part of a video and then going off on my own. Secondly, watching while doing especially showing different angles, allowed me to keep better form as I went along.

Good video. Follow along video's are helpful. Highlights just doing the physical movements, simple. FYI: I decided to get serious about golf a year or so ago, and went from a 15 hdcp to the present 6 hdcp using RST. I'm 63, a slight restriction of neck movement which takes my eye off the ball for a split second when making a full 90 degree turn to backswing due to broken neck as a kid, but have found the RST is definitely body friendly. The bio-mechanical correct claim is true! No unnatural soreness, even when playing 36 holes. I highly recommend the RST for anyone.

Hi Chuck, I think the concept is an excellent solution to our success in this craZY game. The program may make the most sense if it had a 2 week isolated movement then have an instructor critique it with a pass or fail before the next step was introduced. Then after the steps in the section of the swing is complete a a video should be submitted by the student to verify they have grasped the concept, ETC.
November 11, 2016

Great concept, but to do the drills with a Club I would need to follow the exercises from a portable DVD Player/ Laptop (ceilings are not high enough to swing even a sand wedge) so the possibility to download the Training Videos would be essential. I think that is also true for your other Videos because I have to make copious notes to take to the driving range or wherever - this gets somewhat tedious and then the drills don't happen. Bob Germany.

This is a terrific help. Combining the first few movements, in a very non-mechanical way, really helps me get the feel of the backswing. I've always struggled trying to combine several small movements into one, and this really resonates with me. One fine (perhaps) point: Is it a problem to flex/squat as I'm making the rotation back, as opposed to making the rotation, then squatting a bit. It feel much more natural to me, but I want to make sure I'm not creating a problem for some next movements.

I think this type of video instruction combined with the existing videos and the coaching IS the way to go. It provides an easy to follow video presentation that i can replicate in real time. And then, when I have a minute during the day, I can do the drills without the computer. I plan to use the video every day to make sure I do it right, and practice with out the video. I can always go back to the original videos to clear something up. I am really looking forward to the entire new video series.

Chuck, I think the "follow along" method with a "check off" approval BEFORE moving on to the next step is a brilliant idea. There is so much wonderful content on your site that it is often tempting to jump around and work on what one "thinks" is the current swing ailment or area that needs improvement. I can say that I've been guilty of doing it and sometimes I've been right and sometimes I've been dead wrong. I personally would find this follow along method really valuable and a huge compliment to the other material that you provide. I hope you move forward with this series and I look forward to participating! Thank you - Scott

This approach will work very well to get the movements down so they are done correctly. Provides a bit of motivation in that it is like excercising with a buddy albeit not completely the same. I read some of the comments and was very interested with Marc's comment on early release and that is the same place I am having problems with. I completely agree that this would be a great topic for a new video. This seems to be a sticking point with progress. I have been over and over the videos but do not understand the release aspect completely. A new video that would clear up this confusion with release would help tremendously. It could be incorporated in one of the videos in this series.

Hi Jim I think I have figured it out the early release issue thanks to two videos Cedex recommended to me on Friday. The first video "Right Arm in Downswing: Stop Casting" shows how you keep the arm bent in the downswing. The second video "Step-by-Step Right Arm Drills" is particularly interesting as it shows how the right arm releases across the body; it does not release how I was expecting it to release i.e like in a tennis forearm. The bicep straightens the arm in a straight manner across the body without any rotation. That is where the trick is As I was rotating the right arm, the left hand had no choice but to release too early. Best, Marc

Chuck, I feel this is a great intro to why you should setup, and move your shoulders with your core. It's too easy to just move your arms around your body and not have any power when you try and strike the ball. I have been a student of yours for a couple of years now, and I have been improving each year. At 62, I felt that I would not be flexible enough to make a good golf swing. No so, and your video proves it. I look forward to more in this series.

Chuck, you requested comments. Well here I go. I think that you have a range of student types that I am sure that your psychologists and other advisors will no better than me. Some will want to see full explanation videos with drills at the end as they want to know full details of what can be achieved, why and what to do. At the other end of the spectrum students will just want to do the drills without explanation. This video satisfies the latter category. I ma working on drills with Chris a Tyler, but, still go back to other drills to try and ingrained the movement patterns. This type of video helps by being drill only. A section of drill only will be, in my opinion, beneficial. However, you have so much content that you need to be careful about how it is organized. I know you were intending to relaunch your site. Has this been done? Where will you put this series of videos? I enjoyed this video and did follow along. I will do so again to help ingrain moves which are still very early stage. Michael

Magnificent instruction, as are all of Chucks videos. He leads one to think and feel what's going on with the muscles in the body and understand why this is the way to improve your swing, versus the typical do this do that approach to golf instruction. I'm an older golfer with a 15 handicap, and feel my understanding of the golf swing and execution has improved immensely in the time I have followed Chuck's instructions. However, I Have many swing weaknesses, but now understand where they are and continually strive to improve. Thank you very much Mr. Quinton. Looking forward to your new series. K. Morris K. Morris

This is EXACTLY what is needed to help me develop my swing changes. There are so many great videos on the RST site, but the way you piece the steps with this type of approach is like the GLUE that links them together. I think you are right on target with this approach. I'm looking forward to additional videos using this same approach. I also like the idea of submitting a video as a "check off" to proceed to the next step.

Awesome video. What I find really hard is to turn the body with my core but maintaining the club on plane and avoiding taking it too far to the inside. If you just focus on core rotation the weight of the club makes it naturally want to get to the inside, any tips?

I like it. Basic and repetitive but such a great drill. The backswing is vital and it is so easy to take the club back too far inside. I'm working on my backswing at the present time as my swing has become inconsistent. This drill will fix it.

Hi Chuck, I have just started with RST, although an experienced golfer with a handicap of 13. I have only started with the 5 minute takeaway video, so this video is very timely. I like the way you have drills to follow on and think its a great idea to submit a video before progressing. Would add some references to other videos in your catalogue, particular for newcomers like me, so we can just click through to watch, e.g. the neck tie drill you mention. Also, all of this seems to be done without a ball and indoors - is there anything that can be done with a ball and outdoors? Keep up the good work
November 11, 2016
64x64
Chuck (Certified RST Instructor)
Welcome Robert! There are lots of drills on the site that can be done outdoors while hitting balls, the goal however, is to get you to do as much as you can inside in front of a mirror as it's a much faster way to progress.

Marc
Very nice video. In fact I was going to write to you to suggest that you create a video to emphasize the importance of the obliques in the takeaway to make sure the club does not go behind in the takeaway as there are no such videos today. There are plenty a good videos on the takeaway and the 2 inch move of the right shoulder but without engaging the oblique muscles to move the arms it is so easy to move the club behind, which will make you go deep in the backswing. Though I am a single handicap it took me months to figure this out even though I had seen most of your videos and it is only when I found your video "5 minutes to the perfect rotation" that the penny dropped and I understood how to keep the club in front. I would like to suggest a good topic for a new video. I have been taking unlimited reviews with Craig for the last 3 months something which I can only recommend but we have been somehow stuck in the last weeks on trying to get me from releasing too early. Perfect backswing thanks to the unlimited reviews, nice weight shift, perfect position at impact with left arm only but when I add the right arm I somehow loose it. We have established now that the issue seems to come from the fact that when I have my two hands on the grip I have the objective of hitting the ball and as a result my left hand is trying to square the club as it would seem my mind does not believe the club will naturally square it self at impact. When I do my left hand only drills I am not concerned about hitting the ball and hence I don't try to square the face. In fact when I swing in slow motion I can see that the back of my left hand is still pointing way way right when the hand just passes the belt buckle in the downswing. You actually have a video that shows that the left hand only starts turning when it reaches the left thigh and though there are many videos on the release, very much like what I just mentioned for the takeaway and the need to engage the obliques, I was not able for a long time to get the full picture from your videos on how to properly release with the use of my obliques and with the hands not forcing the rotation and this despite Craig's really good feedback and trained eye. You might want to discuss this with Craig but as I said this could be a good topic for a new video. Best, Marc

Dave
Marc, your comments really struck a chord with me. I am also a single digit handicap and it sounds like we are working on the same things. I have been solely focused on the 2 inch shoulder glide and after this latest video, I feel like I need to get my obliques more involved. Chuck, thank you for clearing this up! I also struggle with releasing the club too early. Like you Marc, I have a great release with plenty of lag when I swing with my left arm only. But once the right arm/hand gets involved, all my lag goes away. It's not clear from your comments, did you manage to fix this?
November 11, 2016
64x64
Marc
I think the trick Dave is to move the back of the left hand the same way you do when you only swing with the left hand. When your hands reach the left thigh in the downswing, the back of the hand points in front of you and when you swing with the left hand only the back of the hand points about 30 degree right to the target line as the hands reaches the left thigh, which is when the left hand rotates naturally. I find that when both hands are on the club, the back of the left hands points at 30 degree far too early, about when my hand reaches the belt buckle as I am somehow forcing the rotation and as Craig says not trusting the fact that the club face will be square at impact. I hope it helps.

Hi Chuck How should I be breathing while doing these reps? I was thinking breath in on the back turn and then exhaling on the squat while relaxing.
November 10, 2016

Chuck (Certified RST Instructor)
Doesn't matter much to be honest, I was talking during the whole thing! There are some people that think when you breathe makes a huge difference but I've never once given any thought to how or where I'm breathing in my swing.

Having this video to follow along with is the first time I have achieved so many reps without becoming bored and unattached. I love it ! More of these will be great. The REALLY valuable gems I received from this one were the slight sit feeling to activate the glutes (now I know what activating the glutes really feels like) and the left shoulder coming slightly down as I turn (because of my axis tilt) whereas my previous focus was on turning shoulders horizontally and I think this was causing a reverse pivot and fading and slicing of the ball. I am keen to see when I play today, what effect this has because I have nearly always had a fade on my shots and was not sure why. I like the idea of uploading a video that proves we can do this before moving on to the next one, however, this second part could turn out to be a logistical and time problem for you to manage. Thanks Again. John Mc

I didn't see you squat all the time you where doing the back swing with and without the club. Is that ok that we leave it out, but do it when making a real swing at a golf ball?
November 10, 2016

Chuck (Certified RST Instructor)
The squat is a very small move and a "feel" as much as anything, it doesn't need to be a pronounced move.
November 11, 2016
64x64
David
Chuck, first a great video. As a more "mature" person with sedentary job, combining the moves into a workout regime will be most beneficial. Like Randy above, your sit is not noticeable except when you emphasize it to us. Is that because you feel the glute energize so there is no need to make an obvious sitting motion (i.e., is the sit simply to let us know what one should feel without making an intentional sit move?). I had seen the sit move in another video and when I tried it I sat too much often causing my club to hit the ground a bit behind the ball. I really appreciate your site. David

Chuck excellent idea. I personally find following along with you modeling a part of the swing a very effective way to learn. I'm especially looking forward to you going through the downswing and providing a description of what you should be feeling to post-up properly. Thank you!

I really like this method... it's too bad you haven't done the follow thru... that is where I am having my problems... I know it is coming... I can wait... I am getting along better but it seems that when I get tired I hurry and loose concentration... and speed up... It has taken me a long time to master the squat... it's coming but not there all the way around yet... my shots are getting better and straighter... this is really good... thanks..

Great concept having a train-along-with-me video series that builds technique one step on top of the other. Suggestions based on your other videos: 1) when positioning matters (e.g. feet or hand or ball position) please add reference lines on the floor, your shirt, glove, or even on the club. This helps compensate for the camera angle. 2) Try to do the movement once slow and steady without talking or looking at the camera. This is to give us a reference to go back to when trying to understand what the position/movement should look like without being too exaggerated or too fast. 3. Like you did in this video, shooting video from both face on and down the line helps. (overhead would be a cool addition too.) Thanks for this video. I look forward to the down swing drill video.

This drill is awesome in rotation memory, my chiropractor gave me a similar drill but focusing on the first part and rotating both sides of the body? I have been in the past, doing this drill on a vibrating plate and I found that my big muscles were responding really well with more distance too my driving (thus with better core rotation) I am really looking forward to using this latest drill from Chuck as I can see that the reps shown from start to finish must improve my golf to an even better level.

This is a great video! I really like how you start out with just a small move, explain that in detail and then add a little more, building the backswing a little at a time. Some things I like to hear about is how things feel. Such as how the trail hip feels when the backswing is loaded up, is there a crosswise tension angled because of the spine tilt? Also I would know about how the pulling motions are achieved, do I feel the pull on my trail foot as I hip adduct the trail hip? It's these small feeling descriptions that help let me know that I'm actually doing it right, not just looking like I'm moving the same.

Thank you. I very much like the concept of the "follow me" drills/videos. I think it might be helpful to try to mention a number of "feels" we could try to achieve to get to a particular place in the swing, if you know what I mean. It would be very helpful for the kinaesthetic learners out here amongst us. Also, I think you should consider tucking your shirt in on these videos so that we can see your belt line/hip line as this will be important I'm sure in future videos. Finally, maybe an email prompt each time the next video is posted, to remind us that it's there might be helpful. Keep up the great work and thank you again.

RE: Your request for feedback -- First few minutes: Maybe comment on other setup items, i.e. I notice your lead foot "turned out" -- If you wore "bicycle shorts" / "shirt" (i.e. more close fitting), I'll bet we could see your muscles "engage" more and "see" what you are pointing to -- A couple lines on the floor would help on the "down the line" view -- Like how you offer various "possibilities" of what it "feels like" ... it may feel different to others -- the Lines on your shirt help show the arm movements in a very cool way! ... wonder if it would be helpful to have lines that go from the arm-pit down the side ... (or other lines you may think helpful!) -- While I really appreciate your reflections on various "concepts","language use", etc in all your teachings ... a series like this that FOCUSES on BODY MOVEMENTS is really helpful.

Very nice! I'm a bit confused about the sit he talks about at 1:55 in. He's not advocating that as part of the first move down, right? I assume he's just saying to sit so we feel the glute activate, but in our normal swing we wouldn't add that sit move, correct?

Wonderful idea, sometimes I get focused on all the other things, I forget about my right should blade and its role and I have a tendency to stand up on my backswing, Keep the videos and drills coming!

Love how this video rehashes the key elements of the rotation and backswing in one space. Glad this series is here as I work through the winter.

Hey Chuck, this was great! It's really easy to learn muscle by muscle to help get the correct backswing movement - it fills in so many gaps that were missing before I started to perform this exercise properly. I will definitely be doing this on a daily basis, I'm 72 and losing flexibility but I can now achieve the full backswing once it was explained in such excellent detail... thank you. John, new Zealand

Good video and highly appreciated. Really important for us to see and interact on how you do the drills. The way you explain them in details, i.e. like the "glute load" in this video are so much easier to understand than other videos from the past. When will you start releasing the other "follow along" videos? Marius

Serious prombem for most of us amateurs - avoiding throwing left arm against the chest. I hope this series helps.

I like the idea. It gives the viewer a great description and visual of what is required to learn the movement, and I like the step by step plan, as well as the reps required idea. It is like a work out video, but it is golf specific. It's a great idea keep it up.

Chuck, excellent video. In general your website has improved my game immeasurably, I am 56 , now a 12.7 handicap, hoping to break 10 in 2017. I have told a lot of people about your site.

This is exactly what I need to work on. I have always been up and out of my posture and it makes my shot making erratic.

I have already seen improvement in my game by following the Rotary Swing methods. I think walking us through the drills is an excellent idea and will help me a lot...

I think this method will work for me. I'm 75 and have never had a golf swing. My best score even in my 40's was a 78. Now I am lighter and cannot hit the ball any more and I'm lucky if I shoot in the 90's. I live in cold winter weather and hope to follow these movements all winter long. I don't know if I have the flexibility any more but I'm sure gonna work on your moves. I have to get a mirror and a monitor to watch you because I can't be left alone or I will start easing up. Thanks again. Mike Ahern, Illinois

As a new golfer, working through the RST videos, what appeals to me about this latest series is the opportunity to video myself doing the exercises and "graduating" on to actually swinging the golf club! I have reached the 9-3 drill on the practice range and haven't submitted any videos because I haven't yet built a complete golf swing. I welcome the opportunity to get my progress critiqued through this series. Thanks!

I really like the video step by step idea because i just joined and have received emails asking if i have uploaded a swing video for review, however i am building my swing from the ground up and don't have anything to show other than my previous swing which is terribly flawed. Going through the series one area at a time and submitting a video based on the progress thus far instead of a full swing seems more efficient.

A very good video. I like the methodology to build step by step. Indoor Training perfect for the season. A tip: Keep certain key positions for a few seconds so it's easier to compare with my own. I have to be quick and take screenshots and compare with myself but it would help a lot if you hold for a few seconds. Michael Bosson, Sweden

Great Video . My game has really improved with your drills, I have dropped to a 8 handicap from a 12 . . I just get a little lazy and swing all arms instead of using my core , this is a great visual to load up on your right side. Please keep them coming.

Looked like his head was moving quite a bit. Is that so he could look at the camera or is the head supposed to follow the upper body in that manner?

Great Summary and easy to follow along with, thanks. I wonder how the brain keeps these correct movements in its forefront when we go to the course swing a bit like we used to. I''ve struggled to lose my old left side dominance and I sometimes notice it creeping back in on some shots. How can we keep playing without undoing all the good work of following along with you?

You better be fully committed to focusing on the movement while you play or you're going to undo a lot of your work.

Hi Chuck, I really like this work-along video. You are now offering the right mix of words, images and visible ACTION. I also like the fact you kept this video to 3 elements. I found it easier to remember. Thanks for your patience and clarity of teaching. It is helping me a lot. Kind regards from Cambridge UK, Eric

I think this is a great idea. There is so much information on your site that is helpful, but at time I/we can get lost in the journey. Being able to walk through drills with you while getting used to the moves is a great idea. I am also in favor of putting the entire swing sequence in order. While I enjoy your site and process far more, there is a certain someone that left and did a great job of structuring his site, very easy to follow.

Love it! Relatively simple but concise. I'm definitely a proponent of the follow along video concept. Please keep them coming.

And another thing... is the squat a separate down movement after the backswing has been completed, like you did perhaps for clarity? Or do you rotate back directly into a squat?
November 10, 2016

It's the transition move

Like the video. Like the step by step approach. One question: I'm 64, which means I no longer have any muscle in my left buttocks, or at least not enough to feel, much less "fire". Any idea on how to feel the marshmallow-like substance in my butt?

WOW!!! This is the video of the year for me. It give me a great visual of how to begin the backswing and takeaway. Also a great guide to core rotation. Which is key to beginning the backswing and takeaway. Great video Chuck.

Awesome training video Chuck. Is the squat move into the trail glute always after the core rotation in the movement has been initiated? I have had a hard time understanding how to get loaded up properly because the rotation feels like my first move to enable the weight shift and then I have been unsure if I have properly activated the glute. I like the idea of dragging the club with the rotation - it is always a challenge to not move the arms as I start the backswing even with the shoulder blade glide swing thought. Real good details in this video have me understanding how to stay on track even more. Looking forward to transition details that explain how to move to start the move to the lead side before the move back is fully complete. Also seeing the partial splay open in the lead foot was helpful while keeping the trail foot perpendicular to target line. Thanks

Hello Lance. Some players use a little weight shift to help trigger or start the swing. However, yes the big settle/squat/sit into the glute will be after you had some good core rotation.
