Thanks. very interesting. Just on the benefits or otherwise of strength training. While it's true that this helps prevent injury this is most effective if combined with an active mobility program, which helps recovery, trains best practice and frees up/extends the range of movement of muscles/tissues/skeleton. A great source is Kelly Starrett/Mobility WOD and I'd recommend it not just for golf but simply to make you feel fitter.

Hey Chuck, thx for the video. I think this is one of your best ever, and that is saying a lot in view of how good the others are. I have one question though. How do I square this with the "wide, narrow, wide" lesson? I have always wondered what good does it do to have good width on the backswing if we don't maintain that same width on the downswing? I know you will have the answer to this but I can't figure it out. Thx very much. Bill

Thanks Bill and excellent question. At first it is difficult to reason these two out until you consider the timing of it all. The only time the club truly needs to be wide is at impact, before that, the speed of width is of no value and in the real world, being wide too soon leads to deceleration at impact. The reason is that the leverage/lag angle is what provides the majority of speed, while width is secondary, but still vital. You need the leverage coming down, then it needs to be released to make the club as wide as possible at the bottom. Hope that helps!

Thx chuck. I think I got it. Just to be sure the width on the backswing is important because it allows the lag on the downswing, i.e., wide-narrow. Without width on the backswing lag is harder to create as the swing would become narrow-narrow and then somehow wide. Does this sound about right? Thx again and sorry to bother you.

No bother at all, width on the backswing is important because it forces you to rotate your body to load up those muscles.

Hi Chuck! First of all thanks a lot for every single video you post. You're the Fernando Alonso of golf teaching!! I just wanted to know if the combination of those drills: Sam Snead's squat + squeeze the chicks is a good one to improve both my transtion and impact position. Again thanks a lot for everything and greetings from Spain. Hope we can see you here someday

Free golf lessons for life for you! I race karts here in Orlando with Reubens Barrichello and he's also a golf nut.

Maybe I missed the point. I understand completely the stresses created when the hips and shoulder are overly open at impact (as seen in the screenshot of this video). Please correct me if I am wrong but the Rotary Swing beyond impact creates this same open hips and shoulder and side bending of the spine. The only difference being the arms are in front of the body and extended. It seems to me the same movement reported to produce injury is still part of the Rotary Swing. Please clarify my ignorance with my interpretation of this video. Thank you

I covered this in the video when I mentioned that the hips are still open but too a far lesser degree. Thus, because you're not rotating your hips as fast this greatly reduces the stress on the spine and you make up for the speed by increasing the radius of the swing arc with the longer lever position. Tiger got into this impact position before Foley and never had back problems well into his 30's (he still tended to get his hips open more than necessary with the longer clubs) and arguably hit more balls than anyone.

Thank you Mr. Quinton. I think your videos and instruction are great ! It all seems so logical when you explain it. The problem I experience is taking your logic and executing it with my limited ability

Trust me brother, you're not alone, every golfer on the planet goes through that. The only difference between someone who knows and someone that can do it is experience, ie repetition. If you follow the system, do the reps, the body has no choice but to listen.
