RSA Heavy Club Training Program

For most of us, being right handed means our left hand isn't very strong or coordinated. As you know, the left hand controls the club face and is responsible for your impact conditions, which at the end of the day, is all that matters. That means your left hand is extremely important to you being a consistent and powerful ball striker. This program will help you develop the strength and coordination necessary to play elite level golf while reinforcing the training of the left hand - a win-win!

I am a lefty with a dominant right hand. Should I still start out with my left hand? No, I will not start playing right!! Lol

Hello Gerry. I would still start out with the lead hand regardless of dominance. Don't worry about switching .

Hi I'd like to purchase a heavy club to perform this drill. You do not have any in your store. Which one would you suggest to buy? Thanks

Hello Marco. Our supplier ran out of the heavy club. We are still in search of a feasible substitute. I don't have a suggestion right now. But, there are many out there that will be just fine for the purposes of this drill with a quick web search.

Hi Craig. What is the purpose of using the dominant hand if the drill is supposed to strengthen the nondominant hand? If it is just for comparison to understand the feel of it, would it be okay to just keep focusing on strengthening the nondominant side and skip the switch to the other hand to save time?

Hello Joseph. You can certainly focus mainly on the non-dominant hand. The purpose is both arms have a role in the swing. Using both helps provide some balance since the trail hand still will help transfer speed in the swing. Nevertheless, if the trail hand is very strong and over active. You can tone down the amount of usage/reps with the trail hand in the drill.

Thanks Craig. I feel like it is overactive and I chicken wing everytime I add my trail hand. How good should I be with my lead arm before you think I can start adding my dominant hand? I just to have some sort of concrete measure or gauge instead of a vague subjective feeling.

Hello Joseph. Until you can walk and chew gum performing properly lead side/hand motion. That's typically around 3000-5000 reps.

For the first time in my life, I developed golfer's elbow while swinging my 7 iron with left arm only. (Keep in mind I am 71 yrs old.) I treated it with cold and heat treatments, and strengthened my wrist using a squeeze ball. I now wear a golf's / tennis elbow strap as a precaution, so far I haven't had the problem. However, I'm afraid to swing an iron (not to mention a "heavy club"). I still do the left arm only drill, but with the 7 iron upside down.

Hello Charles. Sorry to hear about the golfers elbow. We all can break down from overuse. Doing it upside down is perfectly fine for you issue. Two things I would do to help alleviate a little stress. Make sure you are releasing properly and not flipping the elbow over (Cure Golfer Elbow Pain Video). Some players even do this without trail hand influence because of years of ingrained patterns. Also, the (RSA Power Release Video). It will still help you build strength and proper technique with a little trail arm to help for support.

I was told by my previous swing coach to not use a weighted club, because the weighted club has a tendency to get you out of the positions he was teaching me to hit on the backswing and downswing. I guess this isn't an issue for RST.

Hello Kenneth. A weighted club can get you into trouble. However, if you are making the proper body and swinging motions. No worry. Most people tend to rely on the weight too much letting the club swing them.

Is it beneficial to use a weighted club when doing the 9 to 3 drill and progressing through the RST 5 Step when a club is involved? Or is it somehow detrimental in some way and you're better off using a regular club?

Hello Ryan. You may mix in a weighted club. The key would be not to over do it and use both weighted/non-weighted. Keeping the relationship that the body is swinging the club to the proper positions and not letting the weighted club takeover moving you.
