Effortless golf swing to help you hit the golf ball straighter and longer. If you are looking for easy swing drills that help you generate effortless power in the golf swing then the Catapult method and understanding how the wrists work in the golf swing will really help.

Increasing driver speed requires a whip like golf swing. Its this whip that helps you create easy club head speed. If you combine this with the correct hand path and wrist movement you can learn to hit your driver dead straight.

I hope you enjoy.

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!



  1. Two questions after the excellent video: why do instructors explain wrist “unhinging” With arms moving VERTICAL up and down. This is confusing to me because the golf swing is circular and the unhinging is actually more of a side to side wrist motion? Am I missing something?

    2. How do golf folks prevent wrists from “rolling” before and after impact? Rolling is such a natural position/motion for the wrists after the side to side “unhinging”motion. It appears that the 1 or 2 feet before and after impact is the critical distance for an already unhinged wrist to be square to target and not “roll.”

  2. Many thanks for this video Danny. I cant wait to try this out (once the cold weather goes away). I've often wondered how some players get such good club head speed. I'm a strong 6ft 1 ex rugby player but I can only get about 230 yards on my drives and that's a good drive for me. After watching the video I did a bit more research on this and found this video, which I guess is talking about the same thing. https://youtu.be/RggLEzq0PWg . Just one thing, there are many videos on youtube which talk about early release as a swing fault and how to cure it. Is this catapult method the same as an early release? Maybe its not since you are merely unhinging the wrists early, not actually releasing.

  3. What a great video,such an understandable set of instrucions. Wish I lived close enough to Canterbury to come and take personal lessons-trouble is my wife wont move!!

  4. Danny. As a younger golfer I gave this concept (catapult) some thought, but figured the release of the left arm/elbow would generate a lot more club head speed. I was never able to control my drive and abandoned it. Have you even considered this?

  5. Danny, always excellent tutoring here. I found my weight shift a lot easier and the feel of having to release the club to gain club head speed is simply unmatched. You are forever my go to couch. To top it up, waking up in frozen weather to just churn out that piece, kudos mate!

  6. Hey, Danny. Great Lesson. The Whip uses the [Sine & its Reciprocal ] for its Angle & Motion. I use a [light, flexible] Grip. It's resilient (able to return my hand to its original shape). To the Point: I leave the two (2) Middle fingers of the Hand, (the Ring & Middle fingers), in [Equilibrium]. It gives me an effortless golf swing as you've pointed out. Note: I gain a [smooth accelerated swing (motion)] that keeps me within my capacity to hit the ball. (Both my Hands are in nearly Perfect [Symmetry] with the Grip whether I use [an Interlock, Overlap or Baseball Grip].
    The grip never breaks down. The swing is consistently smooth. Love the lesson. Jamieson (PF Steele)) & family. Please Note: What's the importance of a [Sine Motion]? Scientifically, it was discovered it never loses its "smoothness" no matter what the angle!
    To the Quik: My Swing, its Motion & Angle, was reviewed on Video. It was Videoed at Trump International in Florida by the Professional Swing Analyst who has analyzed Greg Norman's Swing as well as many other great golfer's Swings. It was late afternoon. He took a half hour (30 minutes) to review my Swing. (Very gracious). His conclusion. "Don't change a thing." I hit nearly a perfect smooth accelerated motion on the video review.

  7. For me this has been the most influential visualization of wrist cock in the back swing and release in the down swing. It has paved the way to much more consistent, powerful striking! I’ve done two range trips since trying this method out and have noticeably increased distance and purity of strike, and it truly is effortless compared to what I was doing. It sounds funny, but this is completely different than what I thought the golf swing was supposed to be, and now I’ve got a new understanding of it. Thanks Danny!!

  8. Great video Danny. How do you keep your lead wrist from not collapsing? That has been my biggest swing fault that I'm trying to overcome. My coach has me holding on to the wrist well past contact but I'm guessing that is to drill in the fell of the wrist through impact. It sure doesn't feel natural that way. Your way makes more sense. do you do the same with irons (catapult)? Thanks and i signed up for emails!

  9. I thoroughly enjoy your instruction videos. I am a late age new wannabee golfer. If it were not for the job which I am very happy to have, I would be at the driving range for hours. I don't dare play on a course because I am not consistent with my irons or driver. In this video, towards the end, you talked about casting. Casting seems to be a big problem with me and would like to know if you have more instruction to help me correct my swing?

  10. Like so many of you other subscribers, your weekly lessons make such a positive difference to my game Danny. You impart your enthusiasm and knowledge of the game very effectively which make the learning points and drills so easy to understand and build into one's own game. Many thanks!
