RotarySwing Learning System

How to Get Started

The new DEAD Drill is the fastest way to RADICALLY transform your swing - period. The drill is incredibly simple, but must be done correctly in order to see huge improvement in your distance, control and consistency. To make it fast and easy to learn, I've broken it down into 6 short videos that cover each key checkpoint. Work through each checkpoint in order and make sure you're watching yourself in front of a mirror and videoing yourself doing the drills so you know if you're doing them correctly. If you're uncertain, submit your swing for your review - we're here to help you get results!

Of course, a great golf swing starts with the perfect setup, so start with the Setup videos first before starting to work on the 6 core DEAD Drill videos below.

IMPORTANT NOTE: You MUST watch the videos on How the Brain Learns before embarking on your journey to better golf. Without this base of knowledge, the reality is that you will continue wasting your time pounding balls with no results to speak of. These videos will transform how you think of the golf swing and learning in general and you will ONLY hear this information on

If you are working on your DEAD Drill and find that you're not getting the results you see of the other students, I can almost guarantee that the reason is in the video below.

Hi Chuck, on first glance your left hand putter grip still looks 'weak'. I've basically got the left hand 'V' matching the right hand one, much like on a full shot. Am I overdoing it?

Hi Craig many thanks for answering my question the other day cheers, quick question is it fair to say with regards to the elevation & body turn at the top of the take away, we just continue the elevation so the elbows are inline with the bottom of the chest whilst at the same time completing the 90 degree shoulder turn & the flexion of the right arm so (all 3 movements at the same time continued) & if need be add some humorous bone movement to get on plane at the top, wasn't sure as Chuck did the final full move all in one piece from address & not a continuation of the top of the take away many thanks in advance.

I’m trying to understand when to shift my weight. My understanding is that I should turn my right shoulder to my spine...when my upper body tightens up it will pull my lower body with it. The coiling effect. This video contradicts that as we talk about shifting you weight with the lower body early in the backswing. What do I have wrong?

Hi, I'm confused about how far from the ball to set up and how much to hinge forward. I know it's going to be different for each club, and I know we're supposed to hinge forward until we can see the ball (with the chin up, not tucked down). But that is going to depend on how far we are from the ball to start with. If I'm too far from the ball, my forward hinge will be less, and if I'm too close to the ball, I will have more forward hinge. So my question is: how do I know how far to stand from the ball at the beginning of my set up? Thanks.

Hello Peter. See if the feeling/checkpoint is similar to what Chuck references in the Sam Snead Squat Video. You should be pretty planted at squat to square, but the counter torque feeling is perfectly fine.

Hello Adam. Make sure the shoulders are square at impact. Also, that the face is rotating enough and you aren't yanking the club through. Take a look at Fix Your Release.

Hi, thanks for the video. I'm going to start by concentrating on the first part of the video, with the club held by the nozzle. I'm confused though because the first thing Chuck says is to start the backswing and then he has his lead arm at about 10 o clock with lots of wrist hinge. I've looked back at the video for adding the arm and all he says to do is to go to the backswing position and stick your lead arm straight and do nothing else with it. I've been practising the moves up to post-up, ignoring the lead arm as best I can. Did I miss a stage when we started to put more into taking the arm back, and also, adding wrist hinge? I'm a little worried that the arm might start taking a more active part and thought that we were training the brain not to include the arms at this stage? Have I missed something or am I following the videos too strictly?

Yes I have to say that this drill has really helped me so much. I am also, looking at 3 of 4 as well because that too is helping me. Not been able to do anything outside today as the weather is so poor but still working on it in my study, in particular in trying to keep my shoulders closed a bit longer by triggering that shift forward with my left butt being the trigger. I do feel that this is the key to solving my lead leg issue. The sooner I post up on it, the less stress I feel on it, especially by pushing that lead heel into the ground at the same time as the momentum of the club counter balances the forces away from the joint at that moment in the swing. It seems to me to achieve this, I have to accept that my backswing does not get any longer than is shown in that link.
