You are currently watching a video about a basic swing tip that will improve your golf swing. This fault is what causes all the problems in the golf swing and is the most common fault amongst amateur golfers.

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.

We talk about the popular tournaments upcoming especailly the masters as this is a favourite for every golfer.

We do all of this from our happy home Four Ashes Golf Centre.

So if your keen on learning the best way to swing a golf club, the best latest golf wedge, or interested in online golf lessons, what have Taylormade golf launched now?, or is the latest Callaway driver acyually longer than the prevoius model?

Then press that subscribe buttion, ring those bells and join me on my journey into golf and who knowas where we'll end up.


  1. Hi Russell, I've been struggling with trying to learn the proper hip rotation for weeks now. In the beginning, both of my hips would drift toward the ball at the start of the downswing. Using the "chair behind" drill, I have been able to learn to load the right leg and keep the right hip back onto the chair. Keeping the left hip from early extending toward the target line has been difficult though. I'm making some progress now by always focusing on pushing that hip away from the target line as I start the downswing. When I do it right, it seems to open up a lot more space for the arms to swing through. It feels like my torso is more horizontal than before. This early extension of the hips seems to be the most difficult problem to overcome that I've had in golf – but correcting it has definite benefits. Thanks for your help.

  2. You didn't SWING. You just move to static positions. Unfortunately, it's a golf SWING… a continuous MOTION. How do you achieve these static positions while continually moving???

  3. Hi Russel, In other videos you say that when you turn the hip into the braced trail leg in the backswing you should feel “activation of the trail hip” or “activation at the top of the trail hip”. I know it is difficult to describe feelings especially as not everyone will feel/describe them in the same way. Could you please describe what and where you and your students are feeling in greater detail. Perhaps an anatomical photo showing the muscle(s) activated would help. When I do the backswing correctly (?) I feel a tightness in my trail bum check – is that the correct feeling?

  4. Thanks again Russell. I'm focused on your content because it's quality and it's directing my improvement unlike other material. You reinforce main themes, and the repetition keeps me from milling about for another new 'feel' or tip. It's like a mum choking medicine down her child's throat… It's what I need. You're spot on with your method.

  5. I think you should try to concentrate more on swing plane and fundamentals. I feel that people try to hard thinking about positions,instead of making a swing. When you throw a ball or swing a bat,do you think about where your hips are……

  6. Hi Russell. A variation of today's drill has been a game changer for me. I've been using my kitchen and bathroom counters indoors to do the chair drill, with a short training club as well as without a club. This is a good way to develop feel for hip action and also feel for a square alignment of the hips and posterior at address. It's easy to transfer this feel and visualisation to the golf course when setting up for a shot.

  7. Russell, brilliant!.  I appreciate your biomechanical explanation and analysis of the golf swing.   You do a nice job of relaying reason, feel, and instruction.  Clearly, your videos are more appropriate for the golfer with a higher "swing IQ" and goals to improve.  Thank you, your content is appreciated.
