Hi Chuck - This is an extremely interesting concept. I tried it in my garage swinging a club without a ball and it feels amazing. I am generating tremendous speed while feeling that I am doing nothing. It is the first time that I can swing a club without having 100 swing thoughts. I can't wait to try it next time I go to the range and see the results. If it works, it will be amazing. Is the concept (and the motions) exactly the same when you use a driver or other woods vs an iron?

Yes, same with every club in the bag

Hi Chuck. Thank you for yet another wonderful way of looking at the golf swing and probably the best one yet. I just need you to spell it out once for me for clarification. From the top, as I let gravity increase the angle in the wrists and let it fall past the balance point, should I eventually add to that with active trail wrist for more speed? Or should it always be passive like the initial feels. Sorry if this sounds silly even after you've explained it so well.

No, you will definitely speed it up with the trail wrist, the "fall" is just to get a feel for the widening without much force so you can learn what it feels like

Hey there Chuck, Great stuff as always. Question: With this method of swinging the club, do you make a complete backswing (before transitioning to the lead leg) then throw? Or, do you start the transition to the lead leg early ( say just past the take away) in the backswing then when your arms get to the top start throwing? Or does it even matter? Hope this makes sense.

Hi Ken, check out the 4 pressure shifts video. The downswing always starts before the backswing is finished.

What a great video. I'm just practicing inside but this flows seems to make turning the club head easier on follow through.

hi Chuck, congratulation for youre swing concept i just try a couple swing thinking wrist action first to widening angle and it s feel great speed and so simple. Do you try to feel the same way for 1/2 and 3/4 swing, shorter swing? Thanks best regards!

Hey Chuck. As always, love your stuff and I hope I'll be able to the correct feel to implement. I did have a question. You talk about working to get the club back in front of your body. I'm a little confused as to what that means. It would seem that even if you come over the top, which we don't want to do, the club gets in front of your body, or doesn't it. So, I guess I'm just not understanding what you're trying to explain with this. Hope you can help.

Often over the top starts with some initial body rotation that directs the hands out toward the ball. This prevents the arms and club from getting back in front of the body. By the body staying shut to start down the hands get a head start to start working the club back in front of the body like it was at address.

I think I get it. So would it be that the club gets in front relative to my chest and shoulders if I let my body just follow along? Club gets in front, shoulders initially are closed and start to follow along and end up square at impact, hips just naturally open more and quicker? Not sure I'm explaining it right.

This is slightly shocking, as it sounds as if it contradicts everything you have been saying for years. I remember you have frequently said you do NOTHING with the upper half of the body while doing the squat to square, etc. I wonder if another way of looking at these new ideas are that you are simply pausing at the top of the swing and ALLOWING the club to start to release the tension in the wrist caused by the wrist cock?

No one has ever swung the club like Tiger Woods - until now. To learn how to swing like him, it would require me to do something different than what I and everyone else has been doing. As for the pause, none of the GOATs I studied had anything resembling a pause in their swings.

Well, it may not be a pause as such, but I see a smoothness in the transition which many amateurs do not have, and this causes hitting from the top and coming out and across. And your idea of losing the lag earlier is not something I see in the swings of Ben Hogan, Annika Sorenstam, Jimmy Demaret, Sam Snead, Ernie Els, Sergio Garcia, Fred Couples, Rory Mcilroy, etc. I do see it in some modern players, but I don't think it is universal. Maybe a factor is the strength and fitness of modern professionals, which means that, unlike amateurs, they can use their superior body speed and flexibility to power the ball with less hand action, which gives them more consistency (I remember you saying the small muscles of the hands and arms are twitchy and unreliable). Having said that, Tiger was one of the first to get fit, but he's had 4 back operations, I believe! I'm interested too in your advocacy of the interlocking grip. There's not much talk of this, but many modern pros use it. If anything I would have thought this grip lessens the action of the trail hand, and allows more lag?

That's the problem with just looking at video. You see an illusion. You have to either see 3D capture or video from multiple angles to understand what's really happening. Looking at the swing just face on and down the line can be wildly misleading. In Hogan's case, like Sergio, they both shallow the club with a bit of lead arm internal rotation to start down. This creates the look of increasing lag when in fact the opposite is true and 3D capture shows this clearly. Ernie Els HUCKS the club from the top with a huge cast. 3D capture of hundreds of tour pros proves this undoubtedly. From what I've seen, only a tiny handful of pros actually downcock although many look like they do. Take a look at some of the trail arm vids that AMG has done with all their tour data https://youtu.be/4wNXv-ple4I?si=GuR0eqmBo0GCC6lv As for Tiger's back surgery, surely you realize that was all due to Foley, no? Even Tiger has said this privately many times and it was obvious it was going to happen as I predicted on youtube in December 2010.

Chuck, after viewing your 5 videos, I tried "throwing the club"on the course this past Wednesday. I have been fighting the tension in my hands and arms for years but your clear and concise explanation of the wrist position at the top of the swing was a true eye opener to gaining true speed. My arms and hands haven't felt that loose and fast ever!. That small correction has totally reduced my arm tension and allowed me to swing freely with accuracy and consistency. I have been one of your disciples for over 4 years. Thank you for all the work you have done to continue to make this evolving golf learning process such a joy in clear, easy to understand language. I look forward to completing my reps and continuing to lower my scores to well below my 79 age.

Hi Chuck, I’ve been watching your new GOAT Theory and plan on trying to have my teenage daughter try it this weekend. I also have been watching a lot of fitting videos on Youtube recently as I’m going to have my girls fitted for new clubs. I saw this one video where the lady was telling the fitter about a round she played with Jon Rahm and she explains the tip he gave her about throwing the club and keeping it in front just as you explain in the new series. Check this video around mins 6:00 to 7:00 to see what I’m talking about. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=cn4K4W7wjQY. Thanks for all you have offered me as a dad to help my girls become great golfer since 2021. ???? Chris

Ha! Wild! I have always thought of Rahm as a thrower for sure. Hard to produce that much speed with such a short swing without an aggressive throw.

This really does work. It’s strange but when you focus on the action of the trail hand and that balance point of the club, the body just moves the way it’s supposed to without any thought at all.

This is so strange. Over the last 6 months I’ve also been obsessed with the hands. As you’ve also mentioned: I’ve heard Pete Cowen, Sean Foley, Tiger, etc., all obsessing and talking about hands. After watching A LOT of footage (which you and Craig beat into my head lol) of my own swing, I’ve had way too much lag myself. I’ve been a RST guy for about 2yrs, and this is by far the most “EUREKA” project I’ve watched you do dude. Thank you for organizing this, and making it a complete, coherent concept. My coach saw my PW go 155yds with a RANGE BALL l and he couldn’t believe it. (neither could I tbh) Wasn’t trying super hard, not a long-drive jerky swing style; just an effortless, smooth and quick clubhead speed that compresses the cat piss out of every ball. Feels like a damn super-power. And I’d say you’re 100% right on with your point about needing the Dead drill, clamshell, necktie and everything else you’ve done for this to make sense. Just really bizarre I’ve been studying this and then BOOM, you have a 5-video series explaining this exact thing. Thank you again sir, this is the Rosetta Stone of golf.

Chuck (Certified RST Instructor)
Ya, this is 30+ years boiled into 60 minutes! Definitely a eureka moment for me too! The speed you get with this is truly addicting and as you noted, it's so easy to compress the ball because so much timing has been taking out of the release, it's very easy to hit it solid. "Feels like a damn super-power" - couldn't have said it better myself! Now that you've got that level of speed, start flighting that puppy. 115 yard pw 70' high, that's where the money is made...

Hi Chuck, What a superb 5 video serie to understand feel vs. real. It gave me so much info, not only for myself but also for my students. Here are a few questions that came to me while watching, probably more to come when working with this: 1. Are all golfers, in the same amount, able to learn by feel or does it remain dependent on what a golfers "natural' way of learning is? 2. This question is related to this second video where both hands work together. Would you agree with this next thought I got: if at the moment of starting the "throwing" of the club by only using the wrists, you throw the club just a little more in the direction of the right shoulder that the swingpath would be a little more inside out and when you throw more in direction of the target line the path would be more square. If this is so would that also be a way to produce different ball flights? Thanks for helping, your brilliant! Marcel

Chuck (Certified RST Instructor)
Thank you Marcel! for #1, there are different "learning styles", at least that's what the "books" will tell you. To me, everyone needs a combination of all things. You need an intellectual understanding. You need to be able to visualize the solution in your mind. And you need to be able to feel it in your body. One avenue is not enough in my experience for learning a movement. In math, sure. But the golf swing requires you to eventually translate everything into feel and that's exactly what the GOATs had going for them - they learned it all by feel first. Today, we try to use technology to short cut the learning process and it can help, but if you don't translate it to feel, it's useless. Technology will tell you what the problem is, but it doesn't tell you how to feel the solution. #2 You can experiment with directing the throw. I did this as well but it felt pretty unnatural. If I want to shape a shot I focus more on the feeling of the club face not the direction of the force I'm applying.
