Become a Golf Ball Striking MASTER!

Let's be honest for a moment. Would you rather hit a 300 yard drive straight down the middle, then smoke a 5 iron to within 10 feet of the hole, and then 3 putt for a bogey? Or, would you rather bounce one off a tree, skank one up that trickles onto the green and then drain a 50 footer for birdie?

If you said make the birdie, this online golf instruction video isn't for you! However, if you're like EVERYONE else that plays golf, then listen up, because I've got an incredible 10 part video series that teaches you the ball striking secrets of the pros!

I'm going to walk you through how control trajectory and spin, how to get more distance off the tee, how to shape the ball both ways WHILE altering the trajectory and much more!

Each video will walk you through a different phase in the 9 day course. In day 1, we start with the most critical element of shot shaping and that is controlling the left wrist at impact. This is the core fundamental to becoming a golf ball striking genius. If you can't control your left wrist at impact, you will not be able to shape the ball at will, so don't skip ahead from this step until you have it down!

Each video builds on the last. So, once you learn impact control, we teach you how to hit it low. This will be new for many of you if you're used to flipping the club at impact. The dreaded flip/scoop is so common in amateur golfers that you'll likely find just getting the Day 1 drill down to be a challenge. But stick with it, it's the first fundamental that all the pros do correctly.

So, enough talk, let's jump into the series, start watching here.

How many times have you heard that you should grip the golf club based on however your arms "naturally hang"? I've seen this HORRIBLE advice in numerous golf magazines and nothing could be further from the truth as I discuss in this golf instruction video.

The reality is that NO ONE's hands naturally hang with their palms facing their thighs. Some uneducated instructors will have you believe that this is just part of your genetic disposition and you are forever relegated to having a very strong grip.

However, the truth is that this position is only achievable when you allow your shoulders to slump forward and protract your shoulder blades. Give it a try for yourself like I show in the video above then check out to learn more about why this bunk advice is hurting your golf swing.

How to Increase Your Club Head Speed TODAY!

Have you wondered how the pros on the PGA Tour hit the golf ball so far while looking like they're swinging so slow? The secret is LEVERAGE.

Leverage is power without effort in the golf swing. With leverage, you can easily lift something three times as heavy as you are just through mechanical leverage. I like to explain to my golf students the concept of leverage by thinking about swinging a hammer as it closely resembles swinging a golf club. Understanding this concept of leverage is the secret to increasing your club head speed.

When you swing a golf club, the majority of your club head speed comes from the release of your wrist angle. This release multiplies the speed of the golf club by a factor of four in only three feet of movement! That's right, in that last three feet of the golf swing a good player's club head speed is going to more than quadruple!

In most amateur's golf swings, they've already expended all their effort before they get to the ball and their club head speed is not increasing, in fact, it's often decreasing. That's because they try to get speed too early in the golf swing by releasing their wrists too soon.

To release the golf club at the right point in the golf swing, the entire swing must be sequenced correctly and that all starts with weight shift as I discuss in this golf instruction video. If you shift your weight to start the downswing, your wrists can remain cocked and relaxed.

If you want to increase your golf swing speed, yo also must understand how the left wrist works in the golf swing. Most golfers over use their right hand and that leads to club head throwaway. In the video below I show you just how important the left hand is in the golf swing and give you a drill to learn how to train it to increase your swing speed.

How to Use Legs for Power in Golf Swing

How to Swing from the Ground Up in the Golf Swing

How many times of you heard that you should use your legs in the golf swing? None other than Jack Nicklaus said that he got most of his power in his golf swing from the ground! What on earth does that mean, you might ask yourself! How do you get power in the golf swing from something that isn't moving?

Using the Ground for Leverage

The key is to learn how to use the ground for leverage. Using the ground for leverage means that you are physically pushing against the ground with your legs. This allows you to use the powerful muscles in your trunk for not only stability but for power in the golf downswing. 

The key to this is that as you start your backswing you need to start loading your legs and your hips, in particular your right hip so that as you get to the top of the back swing you are physically pushing down into the ground with your right leg. 

As you then start your downswing you want to shift back to the left and begin pushing against the ground with your left leg. This allows you to drive force into the ground with the lead leg which is the next key for explosiver power at impact. This pushing against the ground is often called ground reaction force and is a technical term for using the ground for leverage. 

Essentially what you're doing in the golf downswing is you are push pushing into the ground with your left leg imagining that you are pushing the ground away from you. This allows you to derive force from the ground through the legs which is which is then transferred up the kinetic chain to your arms and eventually to your clubhead.

A simple way of thinking about this is imagine you're swinging a golf club on an ice skating rink. Imagine how you would slide around as you would have no grip from your feet and hence you would not be able to use your legs. You would tend to swing all from your upper body and this is the weakest way that you could swing a golf club. Your golf swing should feel as if you were driving into the ground and you're very anchored to the ground with your legs. This will give you much more power in the golf swing and let allow you to swing much more efficiently using your big muscles.

In this golf swing video I go over how you need to load your body in the correct sequence in order to have a powerful and effortless golf swing. So, watch this golf instruction video and enjoy your new found power!

Golf Hints for the Simple Golf Swing

Golf hints are a lot like stock tips, if they're not coming from a trusted source, they're worthless. With the simple golf swing developed by Chuck Quinton, you can master the golf swing mechanics in no time.

Simple Golf Swing Hints

This simple golf swing was developed with golf swing mechanics at its core. Compiling a bunch of random golf hints just wasn't going to do. Quinton used his understanding of the simple golf swing mechanics that led him to a +4 handicap and allowed him to win three golf tournaments.

His very simple golf swing mechanics have been admired by tens of thousands of golfers, and the image below shows exactly why - he's in a perfect, but simple mechanical position at the top of his backswing.

simple golf swing hintsHe developed the Rotary Swing Tour simple golf swing by first defining a set of requirements, and then meeting those requirements through golf swing mechanics.

Even something like golf posture and stance width had a set of requirements.
  1. You need stability for power
  2. You need to be able to transfer your weight between your feet without swaying off the ball
  3. You need to be able to move safely and avoid injury
Using these requirements, a simple set of golf swing fundamentals could be developed:

So, here's a golf hint on your setup - you must wide enough for stability but not so wide that you sway off the ball. After defining and meeting these requirements, the fundamental of stance width was established.

  Every single movement in the Rotary Swing Tour was looked at this way.

If you're looking for a simple golf swing that isn't based on a bunch of random golf tips and hints, then the Rotary Swing Tour is the only choice for you.

You will look just like Quinton does here at the top of your backswing, and most importantly, you'll know the simple steps and drills to get you there in the shortest time possible using the Rotary Swing Tour online golf lessons learning system.

And, best of all, you can start learning the Rotary Swing Tour completely for free!

Golf Backswing

Golf Backswing - How to Stop Over-Swinging

Without the body loaded correctly during the early stages of the golf backswing, any golfer will tend to over swing as their brains don't have a sense of muscular tension that would signal the beginning of the downswing.  This causes them to keep swinging well past parallel in their backswings and the golf swing becomes much more complicated.

This is frustrating because golfers who struggle with this have been told hundreds of times by their golf instructors to just "stop here" or just "shorten it up!" If it were that simple, they would just do it!  The key to fixing this problem is to properly load the right leg and core muscles during the backswing during the takeaway for most golfers. This acts as a signal for the brain to reverse directions as the muscles can't support much more load without becoming uncomfortable.

Try this during the takeaway. Try and focus on rotating and "torquing" your right leg and hip by feeling as if they remain stationary as you begin to rotate. If you feel the tension early in the golf swing, by the time you get to the top, you will be unable to swing back any further with your arms.  When you do this, you're going to feel fully loaded up by the time your arms get parallel to the ground, so it will make it impossible to overswing.

Practice "over-doing" this for a few days and notice how much shorter your golf backswing becomes!
