You are currently watching a video about the perfect takeaway to start the golf swing. The take away may not be the most important part of the golf swing but this video discusses some benefits the takeaway has to your backswing but also some useful tips that can really help your game.

If your interested 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?

  1. Good advice and illustration Russell. Really helpful. Nice to hear you say one must stay within certain parameters but to remember certain factors will suit various players differently, starting with the grip for example. Great vid. Tk’s.

  2. THANK YOU…for stating EVERYONE has different body types and physical skill sets! As a former competitive bodybuilder and athlete I am still much larger in a muscular sense than most…sadly I’ve had lessons following double hip replacement in ’12 trying to become more of a “swinger” and less of a “hitter”…I went from 4 handicap presurgery to a 12 handicap post lessons…I was taught certain “positions” HAD TO BE achieved in order to succeed…I asked why…was told that is the ONLY WAY!
    Needless to say I quit the lessons, I have many classroom hours in kinesiology, exercise kinesiology, physiology and exercise physiology…so I fully understand kinematic sequencing in sports…so I knew that IS NOT true based on physical makeup and body structure…fortunately/unfortunately I’ve had 2 injuries the last 3 years that curtailed my golf for a length of time and I have been able to “forget/unlearn” the ONLY positions….I came across one of your posts on the movement of the upper body in the downswing and was AMAZED! the cause and effect outcome presented in your posts is INCREDIBLE! THANK YOU

  3. Great instruction as always. Russ when you analysed my swing you correctly spotted that my right palm came away from the grip at the top of the backswing. Is this due over hinging?
