Learn how to hit a driver low using RST.

The knockdown driver. It's one of my favorite golf shots to hit for students when I- At the end of the clinic I always like to demonstrate shots and they ask me to hit draws and cuts and all these things. What's interesting to most of the students is that my swing doesn't really look any different when I go to change any shot. Whether it's a high draw or a low draw or a low cut or whatever. All I'm really altering is my left hand.

                And people can't understand that at first until they really get into RST and they realize that your hands are really left there in reserve to manipulate ball flight if you choose to do so. And your body is really doing 90% of the heavy lifting. Your arms and hands should be so relaxed throughout the whole swing and through the hitting area that they really don't have to do anything. In fact I can almost completely let go of the club and that's kind of one of my visuals is, to really get my hands so soft through the hitting area that what it feels like is the club just takes over and does it's own thing.

                I don't want to be trying to steer and guide and control it. And so when I go to hit a big, different shot like that. Like I hit a ball with a driver ten feet off the ground, my club head speed was still 110 but the ball only carried 204 verses some of the shots you saw earlier which were carrying 284 yards. When you're hitting off a big elevated tee and you want it to roll or you're just trying to get it through the wind, my angle of tact changed five degrees there. But if you compare it to my other swings, they look pretty much the same.

                How how did I go from a positive two and half degree angle of attack, which is my normal driver angle of attack, to negative three but the swings look the same? Well, it's simple. When you're looking at the physics involved in the swing and the pushing verses pulling motion that RST harps on, that left hand is there to guide and control the club face. So all I did to completely change that trajectory, the height, everything on that shot, was this. That's it.

                I went from a positive two degree angle of attack to a negative three degree angle of attack by just slightly bowing my left wrist. That's all I had to do. And because my arms and hands are in reserve, they're not the stars of the show, they're allowed to start manipulating ball flight like that by making these tiny little finite changes to completely change my ball flight.

                In fact, I didn't even change the tee position. The ball is still up in my stance where it normally is. But by me just slightly bowing this left wrist, all of a sudden the ball changes flights completely. So the key here, when you start working on your swing, you want to make sure that every time you get over a shot, your arms and hands are being allowed to be a passenger instead of the star of the show.

                If you get up over the ball and you're all fighting, your wrists are tight and I look at your knuckles and they're draining the blood and they're all turning white, I know we've got a problem. It's really critical, if you want to become a great ball striker and a master of controlling ball flight, your arms and hands have got to be soft so that you can leave them in reserve so that you can manipulate ball flight as you choose to do so on every shot.

"I think he's come very close to a golf swing model that appears to be ideal...It's a big muscle, motor-driven swing that's repeatable...You don't have to be a super athlete."

-Dr. Jeffrey Broker, Assoc. Prof. in Biomechanics at University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and Former Senior Biomechanist for U.S. Olympics Committee

"I started playing at 70 years old, at the beginning I was scoring around 100 plus... Following the RST 5 Step System my scores are in the 80 to 86 range. I am out-hitting guys in their 40's and 50's, thanks to you and your system. My back or other muscles never ache, nor am I tired after 18 holes. I am so glad I found your technique and system."
