  1. Nice video. I’m curious regarding your thoughts on source of power…how do you explain long hitters who can generate 85-90 percent of their full clubhead speed while swinging on their knees? Obviously they do recruit some of the lower body/trunk, but in that instance, it is mostly an arm/wrist swing.

    1. Golf Instruction according to your logic, I can only swing my driver 34 miles an hour without wrist hinge. Is this your position?

  2. I enjoy all your videos and conducting a lesson on line is very instructive. I do have a question. I watched Cameron Champs swing and his left knee moves a long way towards his right knee and this apparently gives him a lot of leverage in his backswing. I noticed in this video you were recommending against this. Can you explain?

    1. How would the knee movement create leverage? Lateral movement does not create leverage. Momentum yes, leverage needs an angle to be created

  3. Would it be bad to practice with an actual ball between your legs? Sounds like a good idea. I might try it. Let some air out of a soccer or volley ball..?

    1. Sure, you can. A volley ball or soccer ball is just about the right size with low air pressure.

  4. Another great lesson- absolutely nothing helps as much as seeing a “common” person make mistakes similar to us and viewing the help and corrections- much more instructive than the typical lesson video. Maybe you can comment on how confusing it is to view some instructions that are 180 degrees apart. For example, some popular youtube instructors stress that the body mass does not shift at all laterally on the backswing and that the weight shift is purely a function of the turn. Not your system. The same instructors stress that the right knee will straighten to some reasonable degree to allow the turn- you do not. Why do apparently good instructors have such dramatically different views?

    1. I guess I’d first start with what do you define as a “good” instructor? David Leadbetter is extremely popular amongst the masses, yet he’s commonly referred to as “Lead-death” or getting “Leadpoisoning” amongst the tour pros. I’m not concerned with what any other instructor says or does, nor am I concerned with how a particular tour pro swings the club.

      I’m only concerned with how the body was engineered to safely, powerfully and efficiently create rotation around the spine and the physics at play. In other words, I’ll default to Sir Isaac Newton and our world leading medical panel () on how the club should be swung.

      You can go way down deep down this rabbit hole and I can blow your mind if you like. I can tell you who Tiger Woods himself has told Arjun Atwal (one of his closest friends and a student of one of our certified RST instructors) who he blames for his back decimation. I’ll give you a hint, I predicted it back in 2010 with this video:

      So, direct from the horse’s mouth, Tiger blames his near career ending injury on someone many consider to be a “good” instructor.

      Here’s all you gotta ask yourself, or more specifically, the instructor every time you hear something from them:
      “Tell me WHY you want me to do xyz that way.” Ask them to justify their answer with science. If they stare at you with a blank look or tell you “well that’s the way Ernie does it” start walking the other way.

      Every single component of RST is backed with science and has a WHY and HOW answer that is black and white. Human anatomy and physics dictates the mechanics of RST, not Chuck Quinton.

  5. Reminds me of the first video I sent in for review. Never ever would I have thought I was reverse pivoting, but I was. I had no axis tilt at address. Necktie drill works. Quick invaluable lesson. Probably the best thing about RST is it’s simplicity. Thanks Chuck!
