Golf2019 says:

Simply not true at all!!!! Don’t be fooled by bad instruction and information. No one is pulling their left hip back to start the downswing. Does it happen? Yes! Are they trying to pull it back? Absolutely not!! The hip rotation is a by product of how the club comes down

Brian Roy says:

I truly feel like this is my issue

Pat Kilger says:

Makes sense hopefully I will,aster this skill.

M R says:

I watched this when you first uploaded it and was a bit overwhelmed and couldn’t understand the concept you described. Came back to it today and it clicked instantly. I feel like I finally understand the movement that has eluded me for a decade. Time to go to the range! Thank you!

D L says:

Good job Russ. From Your student Dave in Alaska.

Brian Dyer says:

You mention separation in the video. Is this the idea of the hips rotating independently first, then the upper body? Great video

funny stuff says:

Great for tour players who practice hours and hours a week. Not the real world for the average golfer.

Metal1412 says:

Gem video! Thank you!!

Mike Schick says:

such good teaching, i wish everyone could see this

Sean Tracy says:

Great explanation

Jason Troutman says:

Are you pulling left hip back while you still have majority of weight on right side?

ginan tonic says:

Bottom line is you are a great teacher unbelievable clarity I think you might be a genius

OnlineSessionDrummer says:

Great explanation; I would add really helpful for me (per Faldo) is to feel the tension in quads at address, weight “alive” on balls of feet and the feel of pulling right hip back so am rotating around my spine and feel I am sitting on my right hip/thigh lastly a 3/4 backswing as I am terrible at over rotating and nothing good happens then………. Those are my feels. Ps am a 9 handicap

Marco Costello says:

👍🏼 good job

Michael Reyes says:

when you said, which basically it means you are moving this way instead of this way, I think I got the difference but not sure.

Shiv C says:

I have taken so many lessons and tried everything to eliminate early extension, this was the the video and help that helped my finally eliminate this. Although everyone says try to keep your tush aligned to the line no one has ever given the tip to try and purposefully keep the hip back when starting the downswing. That tip has accelerated my swing to the next level finally!

RWaxo says:

Very good , good explanation

박익규 says:

Will appreciate small talks but show motions with full swing

John S says:

Best way I've ever heard it explained. Thank you!!

Victor Chirkin says:

This is what I have been missing in my understanding of the down swing! I have been trying to properly shallow the club and get the trail elbow in the correct position. This hip movement done correctly takes care of all of that. Thank you very much!

nicksig says:

Excellent lesson. Thank you

My OpenMind says:

Russell any chance you can put all this videos on the hips during the swing in one accessible playlist?

KO says:

Your one of favorite online golf instructors….I am interested in what you think about this new teaching called Stack and Tilt….

Seventy Eight says:

I didn't fully understand this video but went out and played a round trying to get that hip feeling on the backswing. To be honest I still don't understand why it works but my shots were longer and straighter. Played my usual club on our first hole (par 3 ) and went 20yds past the green. It worked for the entire round and I came in with 39 points. It worked best with the driver, pulled a few left a little but absolutely zero fade. I'm playing off 12.

Grover Carter says:

Russell: Do you feel the weight staying on rear foot as you move lead hip back? Thank you!

Pat Kilger says:

After years of frustration I have just recently come to understand the relevance of truly loading the right hip for the purpose of being able to initiate an effective transition. Bravo to you and your great lessons. Pullo

Richard Nagy says:

this is so perfect. have to practice and spend the sweat equity in doing this. Hips are so important. i think it is the one thing to master and everything else will come together
