I managed to attain a 73-point shot after reading, exercising, and performing the methods evident in golf swing techniques , Jοmtοnο Naha (Go ogle it). I was also able to hit 13-18 greens and that was the best one I had since I began golfing. I also almost strike the green with a range of Five to ten yards on the other 5 holes. 73s is not a natural thing for me because I have a handicap of 9. When I think about it, I haven’t experienced a superb round for a long time.

Great content! felt I was rolling my hands to much in the back swing… thought it was the only way to set my hands at the top… thank you for the hanger series! 🏌️👍🏻😎

Charlie Flavin says:

Fantastic explanation.

Caribber says:

Would this drill apply to the chipping and pitching motion as well? Thanks.

The Artful Dodger says:

Here it is for you in 5 short seconds: the right wrist (assuming you're right-handed) only hinges up and down, never left or right. And never means never.

Thomas Lee says:

Keeping that right arm straight isn’t the best way to teach someone a backswing


This series (4) are brilliant. The best description of a back swing and down swing that I have ever seen.

Johnny Jr says:

You’re the oracle of golf

David Thompson says:

Richard Little says:

The very best, easy to understand take away video on YouTube. Have been looking for this for a long time. Thank You.

Jardine Sydney says:

Thanks,at last i,ve found somebody who describes the correct takeaway,i never believed clubface vertical in halfway position,your clubface was half shut in line with your spine angle and you didn,t roll your many instructors teach clubface vertical which means some rolling going on.S/J.

John Soulos says:

This is a death move, the club face is completely shut at best it should match your spine angle but your club is facing the ground.. You will have to hold of the face from rotating naturally in the downswing or else you will hit duck hooks all day, this will also promotes a chicken wing because you will holding off the face from turning over.. Look at every pro and no one has the face dead shut.

perfect tutorial, short and to the point



Kevin Bachus says:

if only i had been exposed to this kind of instruction through the years I know I could play some real golf. Such a shame more instructors dont have your knowledge to pass on. At least there is a chance of learning golf the right way by watching such good instruction on the internet. Wish you were here in the states. Thanks for posting such a wealth of helpful videos
