Most golfers take huge interest whenever an instructor mentions how to add speed and distance to their shots, especially in regards to those taken with drivers.

While many novice players will focus on hand and arm speed, much of the acceleration found in any golf swing can be easily attributed to a properly optimized, stable rotation in the golfer’s shoulders.

Sometimes overlooked by golfers, how we turn our shoulders through the downswing transition has a huge influence over the speed, distance and overall accuracy in our shots.

George Gankas golf lessons instruct players in ways to optimize their existing strengths while improving any shortcomings found in their game.

Known collectively as the GG Swing Method, George Gankas golf lessons have taken the internet by storm, with golfers in nearly every continent praising Gankas and his training as the source of improvement in their own abilities.

Gankas, mostly known for his golf swing coaching, has clear instructions for players seeking to add consistent swing speed to their game : Stabilize Your Shoulders.

As one could imagine, many golfers believe that the muscles in their arms are the sole group responsible for speed and distance in their golf swings.

Once they begin to learn about the absolute importance of proper shoulder rotation through the downswing transition, they can then begin to correct any imperfections currently residing in their typical swing.

While working on their driver game, many novices adopt a swing setup that places their golf ball forward well beyond the point that most skilled players are driving their shots from.

These same golfers almost never have any oversight on how their shoulders are rotating through their golf swing.

There are several small adjustments that golfers can apply to their golf swings to experience instant improvements with only minimal efforts.

For example, if a player were to lower the positioning of their trail shoulder only minimally below the height of their lead shoulder, instant improvements would be realized.

Adjustments in height to our shoulder positioning will allow the golfer to strike upward onto the golf ball, which raises the angle of impact, allowing the ball to travel higher and faster on a well defined flight path.

The additional distance found in a golf swing with calculated shoulder rotation can be attributed to backward movement in the trail shoulder, allowing our entire upper body to rotate back much further than usual.

The driving force behind many of the imperfections found in the average player’s golf swing can easily be attributed to one thing – fear of failure.

In the case of improper rotations emerging in a golfer’s swing, these fears revolve around worries that they’re going to slice their shot, pull their shot or come over the top.

While these mistakes are especially common in players that are new to the sport, worrying about committing such errors on the golf course may be one of the main contributors to a poor golf swing.

Though many players encounter difficulties with shoulder turn in their swings, typically causing the swing to stop short at the ball, failing to follow through impact as intended, causing the player to commit several errors in the process.


One of the easiest ways that golfers have found to correct their shoulder movement during swings involves rotating their lead shoulder level with the underarm of the opposite shoulder.

This move allows players to power through impact, with a downward release and balanced follow through.

Such adjustments have been credited for producing some of the deepest, fastest shots on record for players who otherwise suffered through driving the ball, with horrible scores to match.

That Dustin is money. That is crazy. I prefer his Rory. I think he does too.

So much amazing little details in this video. I use to be able to mimic all the top pro's tennis serves as a tournament tennis playing young teen – you can learn so much by doing so. I love to see an obviously amazing young golfer being able to do the same – going from JT to DJ – that 2nd DJ impression was incredibly accurate. The last content of Rory going up, overly down to go back up for additional speed was the holy grail stuff and reminds be so much of all the little things I use to do to create power in my tennis forehand. On a final note, just wanted to say that I find your type of instruction completely analogous to all the stuff you find out by searching for speed and power on the tennis court in tournament tennis. Great video.
