Golf can be an extremely frustrating game for most amateur golfers. If you don't have the proper mechanics in your golf swing it's nearly impossible to improve. Improving your golf swing is all about understanding what the correct things are to work on in your golf swing and having the correct pathway to learn how to fix them. In this golf instruction video RST founder Chuck Quinton shows you how to overcome these very common hurdles that so many amateur golfers struggle with. You'll see what the most common problems are and how to fix them.
The first big hurdle to lasting golf swing improvement is over using the right arm for right handed golfers. Because it's their dominant hand, nearly every golfer dominates their golf swings with the right hand and it destroys the swing. It no longer is a golf swing and becomes a golf hit. In order to swing the golf club properly, you'll have to learn how to use the left arm in the golf swing properly.
As a part of this, you'll see that the right shoulder is also discussed. You'll see how it pops out from behind the head early in the downswing, indicating that the golfer is throwing from the right side of the body in a futal effort to produce club head speed. This move feels powerful, but in fact, causes the golfer to lose lag which is the true source of power in the golf swing.
