The culmination in the three part series on correct weight shift in the golf swing gets us off the right side and loaded onto the left glute. This video shows how to correctly and safely shift your weight to the left in the golf swing. The activation of the right muscles is critical for stability and the application of power from the rest of the kinematic chain. Al Consoli of Rotary Swing Golf demonstrates the proper movements while Chuck Quinton discusses the movements, drills and exercises to train your brain how to move correctly.

Video Practice Points
  • The head drops a little as muscles activate in the weight shift
  • Weight moves back onto the left heel, placing the hip in neutral & activating the glute
  • Weight on the ball of the foot is unstable and puts strain on the knee
  • Drill 1 - Stand with feet together, then hop onto left foot & drive the weight into the left heel, activating the glute
  • Drill 2 - Practice lunges, keeping the knee stacked over the ankle as you go down

"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."
