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. I’m trying like hell to keep up with what you’re saying. But it’s all beginning to sound like riddles .I’m not sure what anything should look like because you’re giving so many examples of what maybe it shouldn’t that the should is somewhere in between all the shouldn’ts.I do know it’s really confusing the h*** out of me🤣🤣🤣🤣🤪🤪 anyways thanks for sharing your lessons. Take care 🙋‍♂️

    1. Ok, thanks for the comment. Not sure what your referring to. Also it’s free to send on swings to help golfers improve.

  2. Ingenious conclusion to the backswing and passage to the transition. I understand my problem with the weight transfer – too much weight to quick on the left side blocks proper rotation – less is more…

  3. This, unfortunately, is why golfers around the world are so hopelessly lost when it comes to understanding the golf swing. In a sad irony, the very thing Russell prescribes — the unweighting of the lead side/foot — is the very reason the average player’s pivot is so poor. The body is brilliant and always monitoring itself in space trying to maintain balance. When one unweights one side of the body the autonomic nervous system reacts with an attempt to rebalance. Now, add to that subconscious reaction the conscious knowledge that we’re hitting a ball on the ground and every instructional advice talks about the “weight shift” and the player will almost automatically “jump” back over to their lead side, and drag the trail shoulder with it … OTT. The golf swing is a pivot, not a turn and certainly not a weight shift. If we were supposed to totally unweight our lead side, why not just totally lift the lead foot off the ground like when throwing a ball (as you show)? I don’t mean to be harsh on you Russell, I know you mean well.

    The golf instructional world is convinced that the average player doesn’t shift his weight properly, and then prescribes more of the very thing that causes them to do so. The reality (of a proper pivot) is that the pressures of the pivot shift WITHIN the feet but the overall weight distribution remains about 50/50 (or close there to) until well into the strike. It’s like a little dance of sorts — with the pressures moving from heel to toe, then reversing. Before anyone cry out, “Stack & Tilt” that’s NOT what I’m talking about. Anything that triggers an autonomic response from the right brain is going to be very difficult to override and the player will find the response coming in at the WORST possible time. The body wants to be 50/50, and we can generate ample rotational speed within our feet as we’re amplifying that force up the kinetic chain.

    Again, I’m sorry to burst in an harsh on your instruction Russell, but — as an instructor myself — almost every student I see gets this wrong because they’re trying to do what they’ve been told and “shift their weight.”

  4. GREAT stuff, love your videos. This seems to be THE most important factor in the/my swing, and I am working on it – mostly in slow motion now. Still have a problem keeping the beltbuckle facing downward when I turn my pelvis to the left trough transition. A question though: With your experience, this way of training/swinging doesn´t cause any back problems further on?

  5. Never understood why I early hip extended at impact but your instructions around the importance of turning your hips correctly and loading the left hand side have been a mind popping experience. I can now use the ground as a source of power rather than just passively rotating around my axis like a top heavy spinning top that has to early extend and fights the over the top swing path just to make contact with the ball. Your content is superb because you explain what the consequences are of actions good / bad during the back swing which golfers of all abilities need to understand better – keep up the great work.
