  1. It's amazing to have the same feeling of a complete full backswing each time. At first, I felt like I was taking a huge swipe at it but very shortly I was able to get a nice repeatable swing. Like Alex said, it allows for much greater consistency in power, strike, etc. For me, this seems to allow me to control my rhythm and tempo much better than any other swing thought. I do this feeling on the left (lead) shoulder as well in practice but the right (trail) shoulder is my new normal go-to on finishing the backswing and controlling the timing.

  2. Perfect .i videod my swing recently and was shocked how short by backswing has become lead arm only just past parallel at what i thought was top ! .been chasing the 30+ yrds ive lost in last few years and this is it why no full turn ..thanks for the info ?

  3. Just had a lesson telling me the same thing. As a 60 year old whos just started playing after a 15 year break i still find it hard to get a full turn in, It just puts too much strain on my back and knee.

  4. I can’t believe how much this has advanced my game. The cue also helps me to rotate my hips properly and keep my lead arm straight, thank you!!

  5. I love the idea and the result. Definitely going to try it for myself. But I'd advocate for more of the "pull the right shoulder UP and back", because some folks might severely flatten overall if they're just thinking "pull it back".

  6. I think the right shoulder pull is a nice way but pulling it just BACK can easily go wrong. If you pull it to flat it will cause all kind of issues. There is a UP in this move and that is because you are supposed to keep the spine tilted towards the target line. So if you pull the right shoulder 'BACK' you should feel a gravity challenging effort otherwise there is not enough UP in the move; without enough UP you just pull the arms to the inside.

  7. Why this is so good : left shoulder turn thoughts don’t work as well for most people because it doesn’t guarantee that the right side gets into a completed and correct position ! This was the basis for Phil Ritson’s teaching of the golf swing ! John

  8. This is the one lesson I've never had in 20 years of playing golf. Today I've hit the ball better than I ever had! Instructor's never taught this to me. Thank you!

  9. such a simple tip I took to the course today and let me tell you my ball striking and consistency increased immediately. Before I was taking the club away with my hands and swaying off the ball so I never knew how the shot would come out. Now I am standing over the ball and as long as I turn my shoulders back and through the ball it comes off pure and hot almost every time. Great content, cheers!
