Your best video

Anoosh Kashefi says:

Just tested this and it worked great for me… swing thought on backswing is simply “arrows” thanks!

Stephen Peterson says:

Brilliant because you keep it so simple Chris when the full swing is actually as complicated as golf gets. Thanks so much!

Brian Simon says:

driver, the bane of my golf existence.

Max 420 MTB Channel says:

My driver stays at home at the moment that’s the current situation

Dylan White says:

I cannot hit the driver at all.

Ron the guitar collector says:

My relationship with the driver has always been a contentious one. Recently I’ve stopped trying to swing hard and fast. I’ve simply just started making solid contact with the ball. I started with a half swing and worked from there into a full swing. Seems like the easier I swing the better the result. I may have lost some distance off of my best drive, but consistency has greatly increased, and I’ll take that trade off any day.

Tanner Botts says:

so many swing thoughts

Daniel P says:

U fuckin rule mate

Psych Lag says:

Was hitting perfect drives last week and now I can barely get it 5ft off the ground 🤦🏻‍♂️

Larry Kram says:

Ryan, I like to try different instructors on You Tube to get a variety of suggestions. I have been watching your lessons for several years. I always find simple, easy to incorporate and very helpful suggestions. I have returned to this lesson on reducing swing thoughts on the driver several times. I’m sure I will again. Many thanks.

Ivette Helal says:

You put words to the problem I’ve been having as a new golfer. Too many “swing thoughts”….trying to remember the various instructions I’ve been given.

Hacker 100 says:

Best driver (or any club) swing tip out there. The old Manuel De La Torre adage, "you can tell someone what to do but you cannot tell them how to do it" is perfectly demonstrated by Chris' video..

Dave and Ladan Fontaine says:

Worked at the range today! Taking to the course this weekend. Fingers crossed.

Anthony Jones says:

New cobra driver and all over the shop!

Mike Smith says:

Stop slicing somewhat last year. Two times out this year and sliicing like crazy.

Z B says:

Want to bomb it like Bryson? While you might need more muscle mass, there are some swing mechanics you can implement to get you past 300 yards. Start here to BOMB it down the fairway:

Eduardo Naranjo says:

What driver do you recommend for beginners?

lawrence machabee says:

Concerning the natural swing could you discuss the breathing……that is do you hold your breath or do you take a breath During the take away and then exhale during the follow-through?

Michael T. Coon says:

Brilliant message and application of the KISS principle!! Thanks!!

steve apollon says:

This club is torturing me, driving me to distraction and undermining my game. Your video instruction tips has giving me confidence I can overcome my troubles. I'm off to the course to implement your instruction.

Chris Johnson says:

I have lost my way with the driver, I was hitting it well but the last month has been like wondering through the wilderness.

Cao James says:

Hi is the irons are same?

Richard G says:

Thanks definitely going to try this. My driver is the only club I really dont know I am going to get

lunaticninja75 says:

Dear Chris Ryan. This video changed my driver game from 100% useless to almost perfect, I simply could not hit the ball at all (i'm a newbie, only 6 months in golf) and just the visual aid of thumbs and back of shoulder pointing towards the target in the backswing, was my EUREKA moment. Thank you so much for this. I would recommend this to any newbie trying to hit their driver.

Stephen Scully says:

Super content! Really like the shoulder & thumbs pointing toward target as a reference point. 🤟🏻

rob parkman says:

Great drill?

Jeff ONeil says:

I cannot get off tee. Really frustrating.

Dwight Harris says:

I have a really up and down relationship with my driver good first few holes terrible by the end of the round

STARKE says:

is 34 swing thoughts a bit too many?
