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 (www.dannymaude.com) 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!

I’ve seen elsewhere this drill being done with the left hand (for a right handed golfer). Does it matter which hand is being used?

Jamie Sloan says:

I’m constantly walking around swinging my club in my right hand. Walking to the tee box, to my ball, back to the cart, etc. I’ve did this for years, because it gives you so many good feels. It was refreshing to see that I’m not crazy. Great video! Left hand only swings is also very beneficial. Tiger does it. Enough said. One handed swings tell you where, and how to grip the club properly too. Then, just combine those grips, and feels with your normal swing(both hands). It’s a game changer people. Trust me. I’m scratch, by the way.

Rick Thomas says:

I've recently lost my middle finger and a bit of my pointer finger and am unable to use my left hand for at least a while. Do you think trying to play a round of 9 in the meantime one handed will benefit my game when I'm (hopefully) able to bring my left hand back into play?

Rob Ray says:

I know I am just restating what was said below, but this was a great tip for developing the feel of a proper swing. I plan for my next round to take two one handed practice swings, then one full practice before my tee shots to see if they are better.

I Sa says:

This is great! Thanks so much

John Cochran says:

Sending this to my friend who I convinced to get into golf this year. He's really struggling to get a fluid swing, and his distance is suffering because of it. I certainly thing I fall into the muscling category. I get great contact, have started dialing in my swing path and can choose my shot shape, but I often feel like I'm straining and overexerting after my swings, especially as I move up in club. Only thing that would make this video better in my opinion is a before and after of those golfers. We got to see them swing well with one arm, but how were they before this?

Helen J Woodhouse says:

Sorry Danny this was too difficult for me as I am LH playing RH SO I have no power in my RH …? Any ideas

System Optimizer says:

Would you break down the one arm right handed swing in more detail? Even with one hand there are a lot of things that could be done wrong. There are a lot of faulty ways the rear hand/wrist, forearm, upper arm, shoulder, body, and legs can move poorly when attempting this drill. Then there is the optimal way those things can move during this drill. Would you explain some of the faults you see people make when attempting this, and then explain what you see different with the people who do it well?

John Armstrong says:

Hi Danny, thanks for this vlog. I have been playing golf as a one handed left hand golfer for the past five years using right hand golf clubs. At the end of last season due to not been totally happy with my swing I decided to look into left handed golf with my golf coach playing left hand golf clubs. Instantly I found that I had more power and control.
Yes you are right it does take time to develop a consistent swing technique, but it’s worth it in the end.
Your vlog demonstrates everything I am now able to do.
The club that it has helped me the most with so far is the driver. I have gained up to 50 yards and now able to hit a consistent straight ball, something I found difficult to do when playing my right hand driver.
My swing change has totally transformed my game for the better.

Tom Zani says:

I have watched this several time and go back to it. I am exclusively practicing into my net one hand swings and plan to do so indefinitely. It really does force you to learn mechanics. I also think it will build up golf specific muscle tone and memory fast. Thanks!

Stephane Gauthier says:

Like a lot of us Canucks, I'm right-handed in life but leftie at golf. I started swinging with just my right arm (lead side) and I found out I hit it much better (feels like I'm pulling back and up with the lead shoulder) than my erratic default swing.. Now I tried to do the same swing with my left arm (trail side) as you do in your video and It's almost impossible.. If hopefully this drill may help finally figure out how to get both arms cooperating instead of fighting.. Thanks.

Soccer Love says:

Just need to remember to move your right shoulder on plane back and definitely through. And keep the right heel down. Just cranked a practice session. I was great!! Thanks.

hammockmonk says:

I am a strong and athletic person and it definitely is working against me as I learn to play golf. 💪 😢

Jim Gift says:

Danny, I agree that this is golf's best drill, but there is a step two that I use to help transition to having both hands fully on the club. Step two for me is the take the left hand palm off the club and just hold the club in the fingers and thumb of the left hand so the right hand is still in full control. You will be amazed at how well you can hit the golf ball with this left hand palm off the club step two. Once you can do this well then work in the full left hand grip. I've actually played full rounds of golf with my left hand palm off like this.

Roger Hill says:

If you want a laugh You should show
Phil Mickelson
Because he couldn’t do it as he can’t hit a barn door with a shovel with his trail hand!! So if you want to make people into fantastic golfers you should be telling them to practice with the lead arm only!! Better still get right-handed people to use left-handed clubs!!…..Happy Golfing everyone🏌️‍♂️

It’s a Canes Thing says:

Can you do one on left arm only as well?
I just started doing both, and find there is great wisdom in practicing each.

My only advice would be for people to film at least the first few sessions. Even with one arm we can still yank down on the club, and I would not have known that if I didn't feel my swing DTL and spot the steepness.

But it is true that it's amazing for sequencing, tempo, and letting gravity do its thing.

Kp One says:

What if I’m left hand dominate but I’m already using right handed clubs

Steven Perkins says:

Going to use this also to stop coming over the top cheers Danny

Gustav G says:

It feels like my mind is limited to feel this sensation only with right arm and it all goes away when that unnatural left arm comes back in. Frustrating. The trick I'm working on is to have a even looser grip with left hand, almost as it's not holding the club, but it aint easy

Stephen Haviland says:

so is it safe to say that strength in the swing comes from the trail side and the lead side is just along for the ride?

Stevie Buckley PT says:

What are your thoughts on swinging with the lead arm as well as the trail arm? I find it helps with syncing the body and arms, better transition and helps with hand path through the ball as well.

Bill 8210 says:

Great video, just like all of your other videos that I've seen!!! In your opinion, should these one-arm swings only be made with the trail arm? Or would it make sense to make some one-arm swings with the other arm as well?

Dayne Vickers says:

VERY interesting drill. Years ago I met a young, one-armed man at the driving range. He was hitting the ball so well that he drew onlookers. I was amazed, to say the least, and later tried to do it as well, but I lacked the proper instruction. So, I can hardly wait to try this again!

Charles Mayer says:

What does it matter if all that natural motion goes out the window when you put both hands back on the club? It won't transfer over

Jardine Sydney says:

It,s my favourite golf drill too just like skipping a stone,unfortunately i stopped and focused on other parts of the swing.You,ve convinced me.i,m going to start again.S/J.

erock3363 says:

I know this is an old video but hope you can help. Is the benefit of this drill to use your trail arm or dominant arm? I’m a left handed golfer but right arm dominant, so would I get more benefit using my non dominant trail hand or dominant lead hand?

Dirk Gibbens says:

What a coincidence! I just had a lesson with my teaching pro this morning and she had me making one armed swings to improve my motion coming down and through the ball as well as proper weight shift and hip turn. I come home, kick back in the recliner and start cruising some Danny Maude YouTube videos and this is the first one I stumble on. Brilliant!

surber17 says:

I feel like this is the best drill available

Bill Hill says:

Why, why, why couldn't I have found you sooner!!! This is awesome stuff!!!

Drew Hart says:

Love this. Cheers Danny.
