  1. Hi Shaun & Mike love the tennis racket analogy just like the club face on the tennis racket opens and closes, i can see from left arm parallel on the way down through impact and as we extend out so does the club, now just get the body rotation working with the arms and it easy days LOL

  2. Would getting more body rotation at impact affect my grip? If I am able to get more rotated open, will my grip be more weak or neutral? I used to have a very strong grip but I began turning and opening better and everything was going left. I weakened my grip a little and was able to turn hooks to fades…but I'm not sure this was the right thing to do.

  3. Iam really struggling with compressing the ball and getting through the ball i notice yiu guys don't advise using the ground to push the hips around especially pushing the right leg and hip for power many other PGA PROFESSIONALS say to push the right hip knee and leg late in the down swing iam totally confused about this part of the swing pls help me to understand ths part better so frustrated right now Tks for your amazing instructions

  4. Great video. Also feel like your left shoulder stays low through the downswing which will help you rotate your chest. A high left shoulder kills turn.

  5. You guys definitely know what you are doing, but you guys really don't know how to speak like a high handicapper.  I think it's a language barrier. No one I play with, consciously thinks he "stays back and scoops the ball." Actually, we all do, but that's not the words we would use to describe it. Instead, we would say that we keep our shoulders parallel at impact, and swing our arms thru the ball. The language makes a difference, because I initially ignored what you were saying in the video, because "I don't stay back and scoop the ball," no one does that. But, if you would have said something "VERY, VERY EMPHATIC," like, shoulder rotation must be continuous all the way to impact. Then add that most weekend warriors stop shoulder rotation at parallel and then fire the hands. And, that lack of shoulder rotation causes the golfer to stay back and scoop the ball. Then I would have thought wow, that's exactly what I do.  It would have saved me a lot of time.
    Anyway, I noticed that you were "continuously" moving your right shoulder toward the target, but mostly ignored it (language thing). I definitely wasn't doing that before impact, and my fellow weekend buddies weren't doing that either. It was happening after impact, due to momentum. Instead, I was mostly stopping my right shoulder rotation at about the parallel position keeping my shoulders parallel to the target, and my head behind the ball, using mostly arms. My right shoulder would come thru after impact, do to momentum, giving the appearance that I did everything correctly. I didn't realize it until I tried a couple things in this video, and couldn't get it right. But, I kept experimenting until I stumbled onto the right sequence.
    It wasn't until I tried something that I knew wouldn't work: I slowed down my swing, and made my main focus to continuously rotate my right shoulder regardless of how bad I was going to shank the ball, and loose distance. Because, the only way I could hit the ball with the right shoulder rotating was to add lag and stop swinging my hands so fast. Well, I didn't shank it, and I didn't loose distance. I hit the best ball ever. Rotating the right shoulder continuously fixed a ton of things. All I have to do now is concentrate on my right shoulder rotation with tilt, and my right hand (to get the club face angle right, the slapping analogy fixes that). Everything else falls into place. 
    With the Right shoulder rotating into the ball, you can't hit the ball unless the rest of the body moves into the right position: open hips, weight shifted to the left foot, lag, etc.  
    For instance, It's impossible to "not have lag" if the right shoulder is "continuously" rotating. If I stop rotating my shoulders and fire my hands, I will loose lag every time. I just didn't realize that stopping my shoulder was causing so many other issues. High handicappers spend a lot of time working on speeding up our hands. Fast hands won't work if we don't stop the shoulders at parallel and let the hands fire thru. High handicappers would never even consider rotating their shoulders "continuously" to impact on the down swing, because every high handicapper thinks that would cause a shank or a slice. Especially, if they are shallowing the golf club incorrectly with an open face. The shoulder rotation "ALL THE WAY TO IMPACT," and the "slapping" analogy fixes both.
    Initially, due to the language barrier, I was "ADDING" the tips in this video to my swing, instead of substituting them. I was rotating my shoulder, but only until they were parallel. Then I was swinging my arms as fast as I could.
    Like I said, I've watched a ton of your videos, and none of the tips were working consistently. Because, everything was undone by stopping my shoulders at parallel, and letting my arms swing thru. Most weekenders, temporarily, stop rotating the shoulders at parallel to target so they can fire the hands. And, the more it doesn't work, the faster we move our hands, and the less we move our shoulders. It's a death spiral, that I have been doing for 40 years, until yesterday. We don't really listen to the shoulder rotation to and thru impact tip, because it doesn't leave us time to fire the hands.
    Basically, If I remove the "shoulder stopping at parallel to allow the hands to swing through" move (the move that I have been using for 40 years), I would have to come up with another move in its place. That's when a I tried the one in this video. Obviously, It worked. Thanks!
