You are currently watching a video about how to train your right elbow in the downswing with a basic swing tip. This tip is so simple but will change your outlook on how to drive the right elbow and really help you get the feeling of how to move the elbow at the start of the downswing.

If your intersted lessons then please visit the website Online lessons are also now available and more information will be on my website soon but for now please contact me via my social media pages.

Its still free to send in your swings to the channel for some advice on what part of your swing you should work on

This channel focusses on the golf swing and discussing in detail about the areas of the golf swing that most amateurs get wrong. Each how to video explains everything a golfer needs to know so they can improve their golf game and start lowering their scores, so wheter your trying to break 100, break 90, break 80 or break 70 then this channel will help you acheieve everything you want.

I don't rely on many if any training aids with my coaching as I beleive that the change will happen once you understand what it is your really trying to do with your golf swing and once your understanding improves then you will start to make the correct swing change, I will occasionally offer drills to do as this can often improve your feel verus perception battle and help aid your cause.


I love giving golf tips however I really enjoy helping golfers with their game and love the positive feedback about golfers who I have helped with their ball striking or driving or whatever so if you like golf tips then you should subscribe.

I'll always try to put my swing on slow motion on the camera howver this is sometimes difficult due to the set up of my driving range and I'm often looking for privacy but I agree that seeing a Professional swing in slow motion can help golfers develop.

I do use the term perfect golf swing, not because there is a perfect golf swing or perfect backswing etc however I like to discuss options in all my videos and sgtrongly beleive there are 5 or 6 things we have to do in the golf swing but there are options for golfers to choose what they want to do which is why I feel im qualified to discuss the perfect golf swing as much as anybody else.

The areas I disucss in the golf swing are hip rotation, swing plane, upper body movements, how to gain speed in your golf swing, how to use the driver, all golf swing basics, golf swing for seniors, golf swing for irons, the elbow positions and whats the best way to swing a golf club and much more.

I also do alot of club reviews with Midlands Golf and specially Ronnie and coach at Four Ashes and a friend who helps me as I'm not the most technical person when it comes to club equipment, but we talk about what are the best golf clubs, golf bags, golf balls and even golf trollys. Everyone wants to know whats the best golf club and especailly the best driver which is why we test all of the clubs and give our opinion on what the best golf clubs are.

Russell great training tip but what club do you use???

Discus Me says:

i must try this during my next practice

Keun Pruitt says:

Simple and to the point I will become a scratch golfer in no time with your helpful drills and tips. Keep up the good work. ⛳?️

Perry Smith says:

Thank you sir. Much respect. Top notch drills.

fitcwebb says:

It worked real well for Lee Trevino….setting up well open. His right elbow work was awesome

John Hue says:

Russell, Do you want the feeling and movement of getting the inner forearm facing the sky by rotating in a clockwise direction as a first move in transition from the top.

Gene Smith says:

Russel, first, thank you for taking the time to create these marvelous videos. You are the best youtube coach out there. I am really starting to understand the golf swing so much better. For years my instructors have been telling me to jam my right elbow into my right side. That left the club face open. Your explanation corrected that.
Can't wait to hit the driving range. Thanks again from snowy Connecticut, U.S.A.

Ben green says:

Russell – No matter where you look on your channel just gold nuggets every where . keep up the great work . ??

Jim Allegro says:

Very good explanation. I cant wait to try this out on the range.

donnachiebro says:

Might look like a simple drill but in the long term will help so much as I've never seen any other instructor use this stand to the side drill but it does force you into driving your elbow correctly so cheers Russell ?????️?️

Dave Ford says:

OMG That's exactly what I drilled prior to playing this past weekend. It goes to show how insignificant it is to lay a parallel stick on the ground of the inside RR track for alignment. Aiming is not a function of Feet. This drill exemplifies how great players hit the furthest to the Right of Them.. Sure, at first you will pull the ball to the Left, but after a bit of discipline, the Shot will be on your intended Line of Flight. Another Nugget shown here by Russ.

Alan Thistlethwaite says:

Wow you are good Russell, where you based ?


what a brilliant idea, will be trying this out on the range, cheers Russell

Jim Samaras says:

Another gold nugget from the best teacher on YouTube

Andy V says:

Russ do you know reasons why I hit toe shots worst in driver

Mike Reed says:

I know a player who stands as you do in the drill for all his tee shots and it works quite well. He hits it great and is a very good player. Looks strange but it works for for him.
