Many golfers wonder how to start their downswing sequence perfectly, with many novice players unaware of the basic fundamental elements needed to deliver a proper swing sequence.

George Gankas golf drills focus on utilizing a player’s physical strengths while muting their shortcomings, as taught through the GG Swing Method.

GG Swing Method expands on the many amazing golfing techniques found in the ever popular George Gankas golf videos.

The perfect downswing first begins with a proper transition from our backswing, creating one of the single most important movements in our entire golf swing.

Often, golfers will rush through this transition period, entering their downswing too soon, causing their club to move in an unnatural way that leads to missed shots and overall player frustrations.

Starting our downswing acts as one of the most crucial moments in our overall golf swing and must be evaluated with complete focus by the golfer.

The initial move each golfer must back when beginning their downswing movement requires that our body weight be transferred to our lead foot.

Distributing the majority of our body weight on our lead foot allows our hands to drop in place with our arms to the inside of our swing.

Positioning our hands in this manner will assist in generating the needed power to impact the ball with huge force.

Having our weight pointed toward our intended target will provide the need alignment in order to focus all of our energy towards driving the ball where we intend to land.

Our body rotation will be extremely ineffective in the event that our lead foot has been aimed off target.

Frequently, novice golfers will overturn during the beginning of their downswing, causing their hips to overextend during transition.

This damages the overall downswing sequence in that it allows the golfer’s left side to open up widely, resulting in their golf club and arms repelling opposite of their body.

Our overall swing path then becomes out-to-in, which normally will result in a pulled shot or a huge slice, which all golfers aim to avoid.

Many golfers are also simply putting too much speed and force into their backswings, energy that would be better implemented during the downswing sequence of play.

While our backswing sequence serves to purpose of positioning our golf club to transition into downswing, many golfers have severely altered their golf swings simply by swinging their club back too fast.

Believe it or not, you may be slicing your shots simply because of the grip you’re applying to the golf club.

Many golfers playing at the recreational level are notorious for grip complications that end up ruining their swings and shots in the process.

Most commonly, players are gripping the golf club way too tight, causing pulled shots and the unanimously hated slice shots.

Golfers who have been able to relax their grip on the golf club in similar situations find it much easier to square the head at impact, which nearly eliminates all possibilities of slicing the golf ball.

The variety of shoulder rotation hacks, wrist flexion and hand path described in Gankas’ video are all elements that make up a properly executed downswing sequence.


Utilizing the teaching that George applies in his downswing golf lesson has assisted countless golfers around the world, many of whom he has never laid eyes on face to face.

Practicing the drills and tips expressed in the video and this blog will be the true formula for producing a proper downswing and ultimately improving your overall golf swing.

What a fabulous swing motion! I really want to swing like that, 40 years old man can do that?

RJ says:

I’ve had to switch to a baseball grip 4years ago due to my wrist being to tight and not allowing a cup in the back of my right wrist at the top and keeping wrist angle on the downswing.

Petit David says:

1.30 Mike Austin sequence ?

Chris Willis says:

GG Swing Tips thoughts on Moe Norman's Master move? Vertical Drop seems to be similar in that the clubhead falls backwards.

Robin Woolf says:

Do you recommend your system for seniors? Or maybe it's just too athletic for us 71yr olds

ti inu says:

Wow amazing thank you now I'm headed to the range.

stevenolmstead says:

Thanks for your videos! My first attempts with this shallowing found me hitting a lot of fat shots. At some point, mostly by trial and error, I realized that I really needed to be sure I maintained width with right arm on the downswing. At first, it felt like the club path was going to be too far away from my body – but it seemed to fix the problem. Do you have any other videos on maintaining this width? – Thanks!

Stephen Black says:

I know it's more of an exaggerated feel but it feels as though the clubface would be miles open then at this point. Is this something to watch out for?

Mikeoxi James says:

This is the most calm, composed, and effective I´ve seen George. Excellent stuff.

CD says:

To the kid in the black hat, worst part time job ever lol.

Nic Nguyen says:

Awesome video! I’ve just started putting more hip/chest rotation and lower-body initiation into my swing and my left ankle is a little sore. Is that normal or am I overdoing it? I’m a righty.

Club stuck way behind you

Greg Van Gorp says:

Any issues at and just after impact here? I feel when I'm working to shallow the club more, I get more of a heel strike and the toe closes very quickly like your student here. Is that feeling to be expected or is something wrong there?

Dan Allan says:

Moe Norman said this many years ago.

Matt Aamold says:

This is 'exactly' what I'm working on right now. Nice vid.

tokyotony1975 says:

Dope. I started crushing it this weekend!!!!!!!!! Thanks

NinjaRider says:

this is fantastic… I have this issue with my driver more than my irons. Does this work for that as well or is the swing too different?

Simon Silva says:

George as always great teaching. Also I saw one of the guys of the golf channel talkin about you, on using the ground for power and also a couple of guys on YouTube giving you kudos. Thought I mentioned that. Thank you for all you do for us and golf.
