You are currently watching a video about the key move every golfer needs in their golf swing to either make or break their golf swing.

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. Great insight. I'm struggling at the moment of coming up too early and catching the ball thin especially with the driver coming off the bottom. Will give the wedge a blasting ?

  2. Thanks Russell. Your knowledge of bio-mechanics in the golf swing is as good as I’ve seen. More importantly, you’re able to convey that information to the layman in an intelligent, yet easy to understand manner. That’s an art form in itself. Hats off to you.
    Shouldn’t you be working at BAE Systems or NASA?

  3. This (along with your other vids ofcourse) is gold! I believe you to be the most articulate coach on youtube. Thanks for the eye opening info!

  4. This key move is most revealing to me in understanding the purpose of a correct backswing being to allow for early separation of lower body from upper body in the transition. Pressurizing the load on the rear foot at the top immobilizes the functionality of the rear hip and leg which in turn prevents any a)spinning out b) sliding the hips too far forward and hitting fat or topped shots or c) early extending the hips resulting in a flip at the ball. Well done, These two objectives of a correct backswing 1) putting pressure into the ground with the heel of the rear foot and 2) resisting the turning of the rear leg's are key thoughts that go to the root causes of the problems mention above a to c and allow for the opening up f the hips to swing down and through.

  5. Concentrating on that feeling of pressure into the ground in the backswing is providing me a side benefit that also helps: relaxed arms and shoulders as I do not try to force a shoulder rotation. This gives me the feeling of a more compact golf swing, but on video I can see that the shoulders are still getting at least a 90 degrees rotation. ?

  6. Wow….I just had an epiphany from your video!!! Not having any weight of significance on your front leg on the transistion from back swing to forward swing while you open up your hips is huge!!!!. I just tried it without weight and with weight watching in my living room. When I put weight on my front leg too early my shoulders come over the top immediately. I have been trying to fix this for years!!! As soon as I took my weight off my front leg and then opened up my hips like you demonstrated …..I could feel my shoulders moving in the correct plane. Wow!! Amazing!! What a feeling feels like freedom. I have always felt stuck in my swing mostly except on rare occasions when it felt good and I had no idea why it did. I will watch your other videos on how to get consistently to the properly turned and loaded back swing. Thanks from Canada!!!!
