This video is about How to stop swaying in the golf swing. Many golfers can't stop swaying and sliding in their golf swings particular on their backswing causing a substantial drop in power and accuracy.

In this golf lesson Danny Maude reveals why despite many golf lessons golfers struggle to stop the sway and what they can go and practice today to remove it for good.

3 Key Points

1. The shape of the backswing is a spiral upwards not simply around or a transference of your weight the right and then to the left
2. Make practice deliberate on the range. Don't be in a rush to hit balls. Focus on the change you are trying to make in the swing and forget about the result of the shot in the short term.
3. Practice using mirrors at home so you can get used to the changes


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!

Thanks Danny – i will try that drill out. Can you explain when we uncoil our body during the start of the downswing, does the bottom part of our body stay still? Or we 'open' the bottom part of the body towards the target and then start the downswing? The reason i ask this is if i place a training stick under the ball and in line with the direction i want to hit towards i notice that after i make contact with the ball i immediately hit the stick. This is how i physically see that i have done an out to in swing. Hope you can give me some pointers or direct me to one of your videos to help cure this issue.

Danny after watching all your videos I finnaly got to go to the snow covered driving range. A long time problem I didnt get cured watching you is Keeping my head down. I always turn my head to the right and Im conscience of it. But I keep looking up HELP. Thanks Dan.

jim lock says:

Im hitting the irons far more solid but driver is going low and left, WHY PLEASE?

graham streek says:

I have found this really helpful and is working. However sometimes I find I come down too steep (particularly with the driver) and hit the ball far too high. How can I get the ratio correct?

Howard Burch says:

Once again Danny, your lessons are excellent. I watch every video you make and find them very helpful with my “hacker” swing. Thank you so much.

Phil Brookes says:

Danny, great video. Just discovered these and have already been through several of the others and will be putting them into action on the range soon. I tend to suffer from swaying to the left on my downswing. Is there a drill that would help prevent that? Thanks, Phil

Sean HANNON says:

Thank you Danny for this video.
I have been the same golfer for over 20 years had flashes but never really improved.
Once I put this into practice it was like a light switch, even my miss-hits where straighter and farther

Great drill! Love your videos! Have a question: ls the left knee flex during take away a bad thing? I see many people do it. Thanks.

Mick Shortland says:

Great advice Danny

jay willingham says:

Great video easy to understand

Vintage Chief says:

I used to be a slider & I was continually flipping and hitting behind the ball. When I stopped sliding and kept my hips still, I stopped flipping & hitting behind the ball….BANG!

sensa123 says:

Does this drill work for the driver as well? I dip, sway and have an ever bigger sway in my downswing. Any drills for that Danny?

Thomas Weber says:

Great advice. Thanks Danny

Salvatore San juan says:

great stuff Danny! I don't really sway much on the backswing – but i have a slide on the downswing – is there a video that gives pointers on how to correct this? thanks!
