How to hit your driver and irons straight? Something all golfers would like to do. The answer lies in your ability to consistently square the face.

In this weeks golf instructional video Danny shows you how to cock and uncock the wrists correctly in the golf swing as well as looking at the role of the shoulders.

You will learn two golf drills that improve both shoulder and wrist movement in the swing. With that you will see big improvements in your ability to square the club face up at impact, improve your impact position and stabilise your release.

ABOUT DANNY
———————–
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!

Danny Maude Fan forever. I've finally been able to play some golf in the last 2 weeks, and I have been trying to put what you teach here into practice. So much easier to control all my shots including my drives and woods with this drill. Personally, instead of focusing on how to cock my wrists in the backswing, i just did it a few times slowly to see what angle the clubface has to be at when parallel to the ground and try to replicate that everytime. Focusing on my wrist motion somehow made my swing way to mechanical. Also, i always had a slice on all my shots, and with the slice i always tried to keep the clubface closed throughout the backswing, but with this this drill, even though it initially felt like the clubface was way open during the backswing, it actually helped with the clubface coming back into a square position at impact (i'm thinking faster closing rate given that it has to close up more now given it is more open than it was before). Absolute GOLD lesson from Danny.

Olivier Auberger says:

Brilliant as always

liam strang says:

Guys a great coach his detail on body movement has definitely helped my swing reducing my slice

randell danner says:

Excellent. Main thing I've had to work on for years to get away from swing around my body resulting in a flat plane and wrist roll. Played a couple of weeks ago and getting in a preshot routine habit of taking the club straight back and keeping hands and wrist still. Pre shot routines are important.

robert brown says:

Danny thx for the reply. You are correct my club head toe points upwards when I'm standing upright, but in the address position. at hip height it is parallel to my torso and square to my delivery point. Just checked in the mirror – powerful tool the mirror!  .Again many thx

robert brown says:

Danny Ive always believed from address, take the club back to hip height as though shaking hands with someone 90o to my LEFT (as I'm left handed). My hips have rotated 20ish degrees with ZERO wrist roll.  My club head is square and the head pointing upwards. Is this wrong, or is your method quaranteed to get my club square at impact?

Peter F. says:

I watched this video right before i went to play a round. I've had trouble with initiating the downswing, and the shoulder motion was so simple, yet clicked something in me, and i made the best contact of my life on the course. I've never commented on a video, but felt so strongly about this that I had to let you know!

Samuel McCormick says:

Danny you’re the Top man on YouTube I am sticking with you from now on it’s bringing my golf on no end cheers

Doug Hirsch says:

Just starting to catch back up on your videos again, Danny and I love em. Break it down like no one else. There’s a reason why when I first subscribed you were only at about 16-18k subscribers and now your at 90k and that number will keep climbing. Only thing that sucks is that I live in Chicago and can’t play any golf now besides a silly golf dome with record low temps coming my way tomorrow. Getting back in it though cuz I’ve have a Florida golf trip in a few weeks and need to get back at it. Thanks Danny.

jill barnes says:

Again you have explained this sequence so well. All so timely as my pro is trying to get me to stop rolling my hands. I had no idea that is what the wrists, arms & shoulders are really meant to do. Wow thank you so very much.

Fx Renzi says:

Thanks you Danny excellent tips and yours explains are very simple and clearly. A froggy golfeur understand ! Fx from Saint Cloud

Tony Gordon says:

Hi Danny great tips delivered in such an easy format for everyone to understand as usual. My irons normally go left and my driver right, is this something in the way I'm bring club face at impact or could it be something else? Cheers.

Wiley Coyote says:

Hi Danny. Another great video! I remember one of your other trainings where you discuss letting gravity pull the club down in the downswing. Can I assume that the gravity part is closely related to bringing your shoulders down? We're buried in snow where I live in upstate New York. Can't wait to try what you teach this spring.

stevemmoss says:

Hi Danny, have you or are you planning to make a video for golfers with short back swings. My backswing is short but I hit above average distance (driver approx 250yards), which requires considerable effort. I’m almost 60 and play off a 10 but at this rate I’ll have to give up golf soon with a failing back.

Dave Stickland says:

Thanks for the tips Danny. Been trying the drill this week and whilst I’ve leaked a little distance the ball is travelling laser straight! So happy. One thing that I have noticed though is a shank has entered my game. Not often but ruined a great round today. Any thoughts on what might be going on?

Paul Miller says:

Great video, I like how you break it down into parts making it easier to understand the feeling you need to have.

David Tasker says:

Evening Danny. Super super content. Thanks a lot…

I went to the range tonight and couldn’t seem to do anything but shank or hit out of the heel early on…

After having a think about what was potentially causing this I managed to find a way of hitting near centre more often…

This was by feeling I was dropping the club and keeping my right elbow closer to me…

From this info would you have any idea what I was originally doing that created this shank/heel strike?

I guess it was my right elbow getting too far away from my body?

Glad I self taught how to put a temporary stop to this but wondered if I could try and cement a thought from this moving forward 🙂

George Nicoll says:

Hi Danny,
I’ve been a subscriber for some time now and find your videos very helpful. In particular the ones on building the backswing and keeping everything connected.
I’m a senior golfer and have tended to hit the ball right to left all my life. I’ve tried and tried but don’t seem to be able to hit a fade with my driver and fairways. Really important for holes I play with a right to left slope and dog leg to the right.
Any chance of a video giving us ‘hookers and drawers’ something to work on?
Thanks.
George.

bobby tooley says:

I am sold on your instructions and you put them in terms that are so easy to relate too. I use to watch others, maybe three more, but it's all Danny thanks Danny; Bobby Tooley

Salvador gil godino says:

Another great video Danny

Brian Wu says:

Great video, learn alot from it. Hope to see your next videooooo

Philip Baddeley says:

Danny, I think you may have identified a serious problem for most amateurs. (including me!) I just watched a face on "slo mo" video of myself hitting a wedge. With my hands at the 8 o clock position, the back of my left hand and the palm of my right hand -( right handed), are both squarely facing the camera indicating I have already started to roll my forearms and the clubface open, toe pointing to the sky. Your hands are more facing down towards the ball and so immediately you have eliminated an unnecessary movement of the hands/forearms.
Also, allowing the forearms to rotate is a lazy way to avoid having to turn the shoulders too much. So insufficient shoulder turn, no power, pulled shots etc etc.
If anyone cares to consider this, try what Danny does above and make a full shoulder turn – it is much more difficult when the forearms don't rotate !
Brilliant video !
