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’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.

  1. Trying to implement the force in my rear foot on backswing. I really had nearly none at all now that i feel it. I had trouble with duffing again though. Guess ive gotta keep working on early hip release too? So much to think about ahhrrgh!

  2. Make it simple. It is dropping your elbow first in downswing is a magic move not rotating hips first. Hips turn occurs automatically.

  3. Wow Russell, I thought my hips would turn independently rather easily. Once I did your drill, I’m starting think, maybe I am really no longer a kid? I am 52, when did THAT happen??? As always, great content. To the garage to hit some balls with practicing getting the arms down sooner. Maybe this is why 90% go left with too much draw?? Tomorrow I will work on gaining some flexibility, and or, finding the fountain of youth! Any suggestions for getting the hips more flexible to turn separately for us older people?

    1. I’m 49 and never been flexible but the correct movements which Russel has been banging in about have made my swing so much easier (been playing for 20 years). I’ve been trying to smash it when there’s a simple solution, my iron play is effortless with no thought now, if only I knew this 20 years ago.

  4. Spot on wrt separation or not. I will only make slight interjection here as this is Russ’s channel. If you are a person who feels that the golf swing is comprised of position’s in say the backswing or downswing then it may be a long day. It is a Swing. It has a beginning and an ending. If you see the swing as a means to create energy and allow the club to be flowing then separation gets a bit easier. Russ has made examples of throwing a ball. Do you take the ball from the mitt and make some sort of positional back cocking motion? Or do you simply begin a motion and let that to build upon itself until the ball is gone? More that likely there will be fairly good amount of separation. We may all be aging but try to be a kid again. We tend to get in our own way. Russ is keeping it simple. Let the inertia of the throw create separation.. Momentum, Balance and Rhythm..

  5. Another good one Russell and right at what I am currently working on. My difficulty is the execution of a weightshift. This occurrs very well off the ball but as soon as the latter is introduced my swing does not feel the same free movement, I find it very difficult to shift the weight. I sense I could hit much better shots with significantly more distance if I could free the mind up to let the body operate properly….
