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 ( 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!



  1. This is brilliant drill, never heard about it before, that also creates lag correct.

    I found I was bumping hips first and getting ahead, I have no idea why the guys say the initial move is bumping the hips.

    I realize that the club is still going back, but I feel it adversely affects me getting ahead of the ball and then I don’t clear the left. Waiting is letting the club fall, gets it into the slot a lot better and tempo is improved as well. If you bump the hips initially you might also go like John Millers reverse C.

    Would love to hear your input, regarding first input on downswing.

    Thanks for great tubing, Ive been playing 50 years and my swings still evolving, off a 6 at the new Dubai Hills, a must play.

  2. Hi Danny, you don't mention the hips at all. They have to at least clear which your exercise seems to do but what about the power that you see with the pros? It works for you but is that the drill or just you …?

  3. For those practicing any kind of drills.. it's absolutely essential to also include hitting real balls… in the past i'd practice a swing drill hundreds of times in my backyard only to find that it didnt translate well when at the range hitting balls.. so now I only practice swing drills if i can follow up immediately with hitting actual balls. Golf balls.

  4. Phil L. I would like to know how hard or how much does the right hand hit on the downswing. I have always heard to let the right hand ride and not hie hard with it. I feel like there's more power when I try to use it, but I will hit behind the the ball too many times. Thanks

  5. GREAT video! I really like introducing the laws of physics like gravity vs. weight of club. If anyone takes anything away from this video, it's that they are likely interfering with the laws of gravity with unneeded muscle tension on the downswing. The right hand only hit is SO hard because the brain fights to maintain control. I struggle with this drill like mad, so infuriating because I find I'm standing up, or tensing up well before impact. My instructional side of the brain throws down the gauntlet saying "ARE YOU CRAZY? YOU CAN'T HIT WITH ONLY THE RIGHT ARM!!!!". I just keep topping or missing the balls until I can ignore my golf-swing ruining brain.

  6. Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling. Cheers brother. Im a 9 handi and I love your videos rather than the mainstream. Down to earth. Gonna get to a 5 this year with your help. Cheers

  7. Love the drills. Doesn't this totally conflict with your vid on using the lower body to initiate the downswing? There you teach against 'yanking the handle down'.

  8. Hey Danny,
    I bet you're having such a good time in Thailand you don't have time to respond to our questions – I hope that's not the case……………..

  9. Hey Danny,
    Through your straightforward and commonsense instruction I think you've got the opposition re-thinking their approach.
    They seem to be copying your methods.
    You have made a great difference to my game(sadly a little later in my golfing life than I would have liked).
    Take heart from all the positive comments I see, avoid the gimmicks others use and keep it simple – you prove that it works.
    A question. – I would like to finish my swing in the classic position but I seem to finish in the extended position (following your advice to restrict the follow through). Is this a fault or – as the ball cannot be influenced after contact – does it matter?

  10. Interesting idea will definitely give it a go, always thought the key to a strong release was wrist angles particularly with the lead wrist but hadn't thought about this approach
