Learn WHY rotating your body through the hitting area can slow the clubhead down and also be putting your back in harms way. No more spinning your chest through the hitting area...even if Nick Faldo tells you to do so while he is commentating.

Learn how to properly release the golf club rather than releasing with your body. There is sooo much bad golf instruction out there surrounding this topic and I'm here to put it to rest once and for all. You should NOT spin your shoulders through the hitting area, period, end of story. If you want to hit the ball really short and risk injuring your spine, by all means keep doing it! But if you want an efficient and powerful golf swing that limits the chance of injury, then you better heed my advice in this golf instruction video.

Many golf instructors have jumped on this band wagon of releasing the body in the downswing rather than the golf club. It's horrible advice and will cause you to hit the ball shorter, especially as you get older and lose rotational speed in your torso. In the Rotary Swing release, your hands are actually quite passive and releasing the golf club, not holding onto it or manipulating it. This type of release adds tremendous speed to the golf club while taking stress off the spine and hip.

So, if you like hitting it further with less effort, you might want to work on the proper golf club release!

"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."

"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."
