Thanks for stopping by. I created this website as a resource just for you to support you on your golfing journey as I know how tricky learning this game can be…to say the least!

I personally found learning the game too long and difficult in the early days. I read all the books, watched all the videos but my game was not improving. Then after studying various forms of neuro science, motor learning, psychology and personal development in less than two years I went from struggling golfer to the final stage of the Open Championship.

On YouTube and my personal website ( I will bring you the most up to date training, training that is getting tangible results for my clients right now. I don’t know where you are in your golfing journey, you could be just starting out or maybe your body isn’t as flexible as it once was or you’ve got ambitions to slash your handicap. Wherever you are I’ve created a place here you can learn, share your ideas, ask questions and get all the support you need to enjoy this great game.

Be prepared though. If its a quick fix you are after Im not your man. Here I will give you step-by-step advice that you can take straight to the practice ground and apply to the course but it will require you to get stuck in, screw up…a lot, practice some more and then watch those scores tumble

I’ve had the pleasure of coaching thousands of students all around the world and if you are up for the challenge and are ready to get in the game…LETS GO TO WORK!



Johnny Slice says:

This vid totally changed my golf game! Fat shots gone,38 points for a 16 hole comp off 15 .The sternum at and ahead worked for me .Thanks so much Danny !!!

vimal Mittal says:

I think it is all in front leg move where the weight has to be on front foot before striking the ball.

leeshaws1 says:

Love you're videos Dan, i have recently just started to keep my lower frame steady as you say in this video, I do feel very restricted……Do you overcome and get use to this feeling?
Thanks Danny. Lee

Patricia Baker says:

This is exactly what I do.

rusrad74 says:

Wow this really works for me! Out of 100's of Youtube videos this one alone has helped me the most for Iron strikes!

Today I was able to pitch my PW as far as I used to be able to hit my 7 Iron lol!

Question tho, how many clubs does this method apply to?

Do you have an equivalent video explaining longer clubs like hybrids & woods because as soon as I try to hit 'any club' below my 5 iron things go really bad and I start to look like I've never swung a golf club before lol!!

Because I think the extra length of the club requires a more 'round' swing I just cant work out how to swing this way.

Bill Kendall says:

Danny, can you help? The question i have is how big a divot you are supposed to take after you have made contact with the ball? I see golfers take chunks of turf and some take small strips. I'd like to work on taking strips. Can you give us some help in how we avoid taking the chunky divot versus the thinner strip? Thanks!

goathumper111 says:

All of these are good fundamentals but, I respectfully submit, the major reason people hit it fat is casting/throwaway. If you do that you're bound to hit it fat and if you don't, it's easy not to do so. That is far and away what separates good strikers from the rest of us and the hardest issue to cure. It's the Holy Grail for hackers.

Chad Sisouvanthong says:

Great lesson, especially when you pointed out the 2 potential pitfalls. Thank you

raymond hill says:

Hi danny. watched your videos for a few months now playing my best golf for years now.
thanks alot

Sue Colby says:

Superb video.

Chris Little says:

Great Video, Be Struggling with this for a long time. You made it so easy to correct. Thanks so much Danny

Dave Stickland says:

A week later and 3 hours of practice and I nearly mastered this for all 18 holes. A couple of errant shots but think mainly due to lack of concentration I can confirm that this is working for me. Just got to keep at it until it becomes "natural" set up. 37 points today with a wipe and 5 1 pointers – thanks Danny you've transformed my game! One issue I now face is Im making the green in regulation and have putts of lengths Ive never had to face before!

Ed Bleackley says:

Danny, just came across your videos, they are great. I am wondering about your advise regarding the downswing, I have always thought the great strikers of the ball shallowed the club somewhere in the down swing, you don't mention this aspect and I wonder if it is part of you concepts and teachings?

Harold Pohoresky says:

What you say about the sternum is true but the sternum is merely a marker point for the centre point of your shoulders- an upper body centre if you will. There is also a lower body centre midway between the hips some refer to it as the belt buckle. Both reference points come into play when making ball turf contact. As long as both upper and ;lower body centres (markers for your spine) are forward or even with the ball at impact you will not hit it fat- you will get ball turf contact unless they are too far ahead of the ball in which case you will miss the ball entirely. Point I am making with this is that it is OK to have a hip slide towards the target- lower body centre ahead of upper body centre (sternum) at imp[act and still have ball turf contact. i.e. spine is tilted backwards or away from the target. In fact a lateral hip slide towards the target contemporaneously with spinal extension and shoulder tilt is critical for a proper rotation coming into the ball from the inside..

John Roach says:

I have watched quite a few videos on this subject,yours has been easily the best,cant wait to try this towel drill

Martin Chadwick says:

Thanks for the videos Danny, they make so much sense and are so easy to implement!!

Paul Darby says:

All good advice. Hip slide is a common error. I just think of slight left knee bend to slight right knee bend to ball turf hit. Thanks Danny.

Kevin Ho says:

Love all your videos Danny. In my opinion you're one of the top golf instructor in YouTube. I only wish that you could shorten your videos somewhat … to less than 10 minutes would be ideal. Anyway thanks for all the great contents that you put out there. Cheers.

alan carlyon says:

Great advice Danny on the back swing, can I just add this tip – that if one aims their left thumb towards their right ear on each backswing for consistency, it will give you feedback, if you have a target on your backswing it should give you consistency in hitting your intended target on their follow through in which we all want, I do hope this helps my fellow golfers?

Adnan Rab says:

Danny you are one of the best online instructors that i came across on golf… keep up the good work …

Billie Dale says:

Looks like good tips. I will try them out. Subscribed.

Mike Burton says:

Thanks Danny. I’m 65 and thru hip, shoulder injuries I had lost the ability to take a divot on the “pro side” of the ball. Within 3 swings with the towel drill I had regained the feeling. Thanks so much, my game just improved thanks to you.

Norb Koziatek says:

Terrific instruction Danny – I can't wait to try it tomorrow and not nhit the ground first with my irons!

Bill Gosnell says:

Thank you, of all the golf vids I’ve watched no vid has ever explained the relationship of sternum to ball before. For me, this explanation was an epiphany. Thanks a bunch.

Kevin G says:

I really like your teaching style. I’m going to try these exercises. I tend to sway when I really want to crush it-which turns out horribly. I also come over the top and sometimes make great ball then turf contact but the ball goes 30 yards left even though I made good contact. If I focus on sternum over the ball at impact will that stop over the top and sway? Things go horribly wrong when I try to swing harder/faster. I suppose I should trust that the better contact will make the ball travel farther. Thank you!

steve chan says:

Thanks for the tips. My driving is good but always the 2nd shot that ruins my game. Now I know where to stand and what to do. Thanks very much.

Howard Balfour says:

so do you need a steeper swing for irons and a flatter swing for a driver ?

brodygoalie says:

Hey Danny- did the towel drill today. WOW. I was able to avoid the towel and I could tell I was compacting the ball ! Will keep doing this drill to have a decending blow and catch the ball first. THX Danny. Do a vid on the Impact bag please.

Simon Templar says:

This could be a lightbulb moment for me. I have been bumping the hips, shallowing the club, and sliding the hips no wonder I'm struggling.
