This is THE key drill for really understanding how the downswing sequencing works. This 20 minute long video is one of the most important on the site.

Video Practice Points
  • If the drill feels natural, you're probably fine - if it feels strange, you need to work on it
  • In setup position, set the right arm where it would be at the top of the swing - keep the shoulder blade down
  • Rotate back then throw a ball with the right hand, working to feel that the shoulders and hips remain shut
  • In fact, the throwing motion will cause a natural weight shift leaving hips open while the right shoulder stays back
  • Feel that the pivot point (the shoulder) does not move beyond the release point (the ball)
  • This helps golfers who over-pull from the left and over-spin their hips
  • The hips need to brace up in neutral at impact so the power of the swing transmits up the chain to the shoulders, arms and club

"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."
