Golfers who want to strike the ball then the ground know that they should be compressing their irons.  They also know that there should be shaft lean at impact but they still struggle to achieve a consistent strike with their iron shots.

In this weeks golf video Danny reveals how by taking control of the club face the impact position and strike just happen.

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!



Corey L says:

The thumbnail position bit is very helpful. Thanks!

Diego Luftmann says:

Hello Danny, Your instructions are by far the best tips you can find on YouTube. You can think straight into the mistakes of an amateur and explain them with valuable tips. Keep it up. It helps a lot. :-))

Randy Rundio says:

Danny, I love your videos. What type of changes or adjustments would someone have to make if they were built more solid with a bigger chest? I feel like a lot of what you teach is physically challenging for me. Perhaps you could do a video targeting larger golfers in the future?

Fred Monje says:

Thanks Danny for your videos. I have been watching your videos for about 6 months and my handicap has drop 10. Great work, keep it up.

Douglas Robertson says:

Last weeks stone skimming analogy really helped me finish my swing and this new drill will hopefully complete the backswing correctly. Thanks again. Any chance of a bunker tip soon?

Paul Clews says:

I used to put my lead hand underneath resulting in me fanning the club and sh….. the bloody ball! Your explanation is spot on, but should you have said “the thumb nails facing you” rather than pointing at you? I have visions of thumb lift?! Great vid Dan, thanks!

Sun Dog says:

Danny I practiced this yesterday with keeping my thumbnails pointing at me in my backswing and it really helped me to stop pulling my irons left. Thank you for your instructional videos. Excellent!!!

Scott Davidson says:

I've been searching for a simple description of the grip for ages and Danny explains it in about 10 seconds while talking about something else lol. Great vid Danny.

Owen Frost says:

OMG…my right to left shape could actually be coming from how I place my hand on the grip Danny, as I do exactly that 'habit' you covered!! Love the thumb nail feel too ??

Rick Sam says:

Took your advice to the range and it works! Thank you Danny for your help and most important keeping it simple!

Jeffus & Gail Morris says:

Would you advise to take this feeling when using the Driver ? I'm a visible learner and struggle with being/feeling a position.
Again great content.

Jim Baran says:

NICE!NICE!NICE!Video. Those thumb check points are really important!!! Great job!!!

Garry Wilcox says:

Danny I've been out 6 times this year it's early April. I have stayed under 90 all six times 2 years ago my low score was 104,last summer I was shocked to break 90 with a 87 this year I already have a 85 the game is so much fun thank you for your lessons I'm hooked thank you again

Z Masrin says:

Tq chief.. this really helpful..???

jill barnes says:

Great drill with thumbs being the guide. My Pro is encouraging me to be aware of where the shaft is pointing at the top of the back swing. I'm usually laid off but when I do get it on line wow the ball goes so nicely on line. Quite hard to tell but I now just tweek my right hand clockwise at the top. Thank you once again.

Stephen Stead says:

Another great video Danny , thank you. I have been told that I open the club face in the backswing but did not know how to check it! I will try this, fingers crossed!

Bob Epstein says:

Danny really enjoyed this video. I was wondering certain shots like when you’re in the sand trap or when you’re pitching many professionals ( Phil Mickelson and Hank Haney respectively) say that you should have the club head slightly opened. In this scenario where would the thumbnail have to be throughout the swing because I assume the clubhead should remain open throughout the whole of the swing.

Has Fred Shoemaker been over in the UK.?
Always wanted to go to one of his schools, but they’ve always been in Spain when I’ve not been able to go.
Used to do that exercise when sitting watching the tv. Drove the missus nuts.?

Andrew Shelley says:

Best golf instruction on YouTube by far – cheers for sharing your expertise each week!

kevmurt says:

Another excellent, simple explanation- thanks! Thumbs up, for sure ; )

john smith says:

Danny would you describe your technique as a hand release or a body release ? I have been reading some other material, but in the videos of yours I have watched over the past year, I don't recall you using either term. In this video, you say that if the club is in the correct place at the top, there is no need to manipulate it – hence my question. Thanks.

brian hutchinson says:

Hi Danny. Danny is there anyway I can teach myself how to hit the driver maybe there is a couple of positions that I could get into with the driver so I can hit a drive off.I feel as if I am coming down too steep with the driver I have a load of marks on the top of the driver. As it stands with me anything with a longer shaft I have big problems with hitting them I don't know what it is. I would really appreciate if you could give me a few little tips to work on. Thanks.

Peter says:

Thanks Danny! I’ve been wondering how to know what the club face is doing while it’s back there. Great explanation ??

William Parke says:

Love it Danny pal. ❤️

M Sandford says:

One of the best videos on CLUB face I’ve seen in 2019.
I’m going to the driving range right now to test this out.
Love the guessing game.
I’ll try it with my mates.
We need to become sensitive to where precisely the club face is …
I will ask My friends to close their eyes and then ask them to regrip their club after i spin it around a bit.
Then I’ll ask them to guess what direction the club face is facing…
o’clock 3 o’clock 6 o’clock etc.
I think we will hit more consistent shots.
