Don't Turn Your Shoulders In The Golf Swing

Shoulder turn in the golf swing is one of the most misunderstood elements of the golf swing and indeed golf swing. So why do I say don't turn your shoulders in the golf swing?
Well too much rotation and focus on turning effects the tilts of the backswing causing a myriad of errors. If you want more effortless power golf swing and a consistent backswing, you need to have a short golf swing that is efficient and still delivers the power and feels you can do no matter if you are a senior golf swing or a seasoned pro.

  1. Do you try and turn and turn? Have you noticed iffy results despite trying to get MORE turn in your swing? Let me know below!

  2. You have to find a better phrase than "don't turn the shoulder" because you are indeed turning your shoulder every time you said you are winding up. To me, "winding up" is "turning" as well. How can you wind up without turning? Are you talking about "swaying" the shoulder and body? "Do not sway and lean your body" instead of "Do not turn" may be the correct phrase?

  3. I thank you for the videos and all of the good information. What I really don't understand is why every golf instruction video spends 80% or more of the time explaining why the wrong things are wrong. Teaching from the negative perspective is incredibly annoying. Why can't golf instructors simply focus on explaining the correct things to do and how to drill, practice and implement those few key aspects? That would be so much more beneficial for learning. As an analogy, it would be like spending 80% of your lecture explaining all the disadvantages of the human body crashing through a windshield and hitting the pavement at highway speeds, instead of simply explaining why seatbelts are beneficial. A major flaw in all modern golf instruction is the persistent teaching from the negative perspective.

  4. No turn of the shoulders, eh? Pause the video at 5:07 and you have a perfect 90 deg. shoulder turn…and left arm straight, left arm still approx. 90 deg to the shoulder line (that's really a key), very little bend in the right elbow, soft wrist cock with straight or bowed left wrist…couldn't ask for anything better. Don't pretend there's no shoulder turn because if you really had none then your left arm would be across your chest, losing your Y at address, causing a big strain on your left shoulder and giving you no real power to hit the ball. The shoulders can only provide some turning power back through the ball if they have turned back 80 to 90 deg in the backswing. Works for me and I'm 71.

  5. The more extreme I bring the club inside the better my contact. If I bring the club back on a normal plane then I always chop straight down. Zero contact on the ball. So I bring the club back toward my right toe and keep the club as low to the ground as possible at all time through the swing. This keeps me from digging into the ground.

  6. Great information! I've always taught that you push the grip end back with your left arm and shoulder, which in turn creates all the shoulder turn you gonna get.

  7. I liked your explanation of turning verses winding up. And getting my left shoulder back around.
    I enjoy your videos. I always get something helpful from them. Thank you!
