Learn to create an easy swing with this simple golf tip to improve your backswing.

Senior golfers often site their lack of distance down to poor flexibility and injury issues. While this can be the case…for many of my clients they misinterpret how to make a correct turn in the backswing.

In this weeks golf lesson you will learn how to complete your golf swing so that you have more energy stored and can generate more distance.

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!

R L Will says:

Awesome instruction, Danny! Thanks so much.

Ian Wood says:

Excellent and enjoyable lesson again cheers

Sergio Cohen says:

Beauty. This drill will be helpfull not only for senior but for every golfer struggling with the backswing

Mil Sneler says:

You got really good lessons. That is how you supposed to teach golf.

Greg Boggs says:

Best instructor on the internet, period!
Awesome Danny, plain and simple.

I think a big problem is we're constantly told to not come over the top. But coming over the top is NOT what you're showing here. Coming in steep is fine as long as 12 o'clock (the lowest part of your swing) is toward the ball. It's actually better because it's less lateral movement which means less slicing or hooking. Where it gets into a problem is if 12 o'clock is toward the target (and is below the ground), so you end up chopping the ball to adjust, almost like an axe swing. That's what coming over the top really is.

So I'm thinking people have a bad swing because they misunderstand what coming over the top really is and they have a "shallower" swing, but 12 o'clock is still toward the target. So it's not a chopping motion, but still the same problem and way more prone to slices and hooks.

I should make an animated video showing this. Actually, I do renders in my spare time. This would be a cool project I think. Time to model me some 3D golf clubs.

Art 'Dutch' Willemse says:

How much right arm power is a person to use if any?

Peter Brewer says:

Good video! But the target is surely the fairway, not the ball.

Richard Tracey says:

Do I throw the club down or just let drop?.

Sam Faivus says:

I love this guy. Keep it simple. He's great.

M D says:

Another great video for all ages . On the swing no matter how old we are . As seeing am 50 grr but I do love my golf . Still waiting on a video on the golf grip for the left & right hand . Keep up the excellent work Danny 10 / 10

Ian Tweedie says:

Brilliantly helpful Danny! Thanks a lot?

S Tocksup says:

I love your videos and insightful comments and since you kind of brought it up in this particular video, could you please do another video (or a detailed commentary) on the difference between the two plane vertical golf swing (which you teach) and the single plane, rotary "flatish" golf swing that others teach and of course say is better.

ScottoSoHotto82 says:

Nice vid Danny! Not a senior, but definitely taught me a few things about the backswing. I'm guilty of trying to wrap that club around my back. I'd love to see a video on how to keep the clubface square at impact. I don't know how I got into that habit, but everything is going right on me 🙁

Ja Kov says:

Any drill to let the gravity take IT away

Dick Samuelsson says:

Thanks again Danny, as always it’s an logical and crystal clear lesson “so let’s get cracking”

alan carlyon says:

Another great video Danny, but at the age of 68 I find it hard to keep my left arm straight to the height you were showing for seniors!

666gregor says:

This tip is good for any golfer Danny, as this is something that creeps into my backswing especially when I think I am getting the better of the game of golf!

chris mostert says:

Simple, easy to grasp instruction. Always the best by far for me.  Tk's Danny.

George Pasino says:

Thanks, good lesson. Merry Christmas Pro.

Mike Beck says:

Danny, great instruction. I have the tilt, the turn and get the club up high. However, really struggle on the down swing with over the top which is causing shots to fade or slice. I was hoping you would go a little deeper in your explanation of the down swing and how to correct this problem that I am sure causes a lot of frustration for many golfers. Thanks.

Leonard Dzubow says:

One other point/question. In attempting your takeaway tip, I have felt that attempting to stabilize my lower body as I push back does in fact cause me to reverse pivot. However. if I allow my right hip to move backwards during the takeaway, I retain the spine angle. You haven't mentioned whether the right hip moves or not in the takeaway but for me its the only way to prevent leaning towards the target like your client Ed in the video.

Samuel Collie says:

You have some of the best lessons on YouTube! I'm practicing your chipping lesson right now! I'm 70 and certainly have lost flexibility. I will concentrate on your lesson and drill! Thanks!

Jenno Vices says:

Here's something funny as I used my smart phone as a torch to look in a dark cupboard I also accidentally started Danny's video and when I looked in the cupboard I heard this voice say ….. Hello I'm Danny Maude …. gave me the fright of me life ….lol

Jack Tate says:

Seems to be the same vlog with slight changes ie turn, turn, turn

Larry Morris says:

I certainly will but it will probably be a while I’m unfortunately having knee replacement surgery on December 3rd

tourblade1 says:

Another great video. Thanks for the weekly content!

Ed Gee says:

Danny, you explain these concepts so well! I really enjoy your videos and out of all the videos I follow, yours is definitely the best!! Keep up the great work and looking forward to your next video!!

Larry Morris says:

Another great video Danny Thanks

Joanne Berson says:

I really enjoy your teaching. I am 60 year young women who has played at golf for over 30 years. Now I have time, and the more I've played the worse I've become. help! I can't stop my backdating and break at top.
