I have a horrible slide on the down swing which stalls my rotation. Then comes the dreaded flip. Will this drill help to get the rotation started earlier which in turn will help get my lead leg extending sooner to clear my hips? Seems like it will with this simple trigger.

Thank you so much Nate! I’ll be taking this to the range ASAP. Need to get this fixed. So frustrating!

So mostly the golf swing is the same as a baseball swing, but on a different plane? That's what I got out of this video. Great videos by the way, you seem to say it so I can usually understand it.

Other than you have wrist extension in your lead arm with a baseball swing, they're very similar. Play well! Nate | TSG Instructor

Started out great on the driving range yesterday, hitting my 6 iron pretty good for me. Took a little break and went to swinging again. And felt like I completely lost how to swing. I started pulling every shot, and slicing it over to the 10 tee box when people were on it. I feel like this video will help next driving range trip. Always seem to post a new video on what is plaguing me lol. Thanks!

Is there any reason why I shouldn’t consider taking a small step with my lead foot as a permanent method to incorporate into my golf swing?

Oy oldin

Top Speed Golf - Clay Ballard

Lifting your lead heel to promote more hip turn during backswing and helping to shift the weight back to the lead side when it goes back down is fine. Play well! Nate | TSG Instructor

The THING nobody is teaching really is .... keep hands/grip LOW at setup ... these "slots" and "shallow" stuff happens all natural if u figure that out... shaft lean become an auto setup AND impact... keep ur hands close to ur body and loooow = Ernie Els has this perfect as always .... works without thinking much at all ;))))

I agree. Also, my swing is gravity fed until impact. No real force applied until the club head is right on the ball.

If I can't externally rotate my trail arm from injury, am I hosed to be able to perform this move?

Oy oldin

Top Speed Golf - Clay Ballard

I think you should still be able to get in a good position for impact. Try just dropping your arms like you would swing an axe when you start the downswing. Obviously you only need to go so far down and then turn. Best of luck! Nate | TSG Instructor

Another great video thanks. When you are turning into your left arm how do your hands feel? To me it feels like there is a brief moment when they are almost still and if anything moving away from the target while my body moves forward. This is the point when I try to do the "move". Is this the right?

Eureka moment. My left arm always too far across my chest. Gets stuck and I have to throw the club out. Don’t move arm across chest to finish backswing, but move chest away from arm to start downswing.

Is this why some pros lift their left foot slightly in the backswing? If only my left side didn't have nerve damage, might make it easier lol, I seem to struggle with this quite a bit.

@Top Speed Golf - Clay Ballard cheers! They should be better soon I hope, been doing a lot of physical therapy and golf which has helped immensely. Bombed a 295 yd drive the other day so I can't be too bad :)

The lifting of the lead foot helps to free up the hips for more turn. It also promotes the weight shift back to the lead side as the foot goes back down. Sorry to hear about your ailments. Best of luck! Nate | TSG Instructor

Hey, thanks for the interest but Clay doesn't offer private lessons. He focuses all of his time on making videos and running the business. This allows him to help as many people as possible. Robin, our Director of Instruction, does private lessons in the Orlando, FL area. If interested then follow this link: https://topspeedgolf.com/in-person-lessons-with-robin-rosado/. Play well!

that makes sense... Actually I have been following your posts and different lessons about proper swing and it changed a lot my stroke for better result. I have one question, how do you stop hitting ball too high?

@Top Speed Golf - Clay Ballard thank you so much for your reply.... yes I did try above suggestions and they somewhat changed how my balls fly .... it also adds 8-10 yards distance.

Without seeing a swing it's difficult to assess what may be going on, but the other comments here have good suggestions. Try to get more shaft lean and the hands in front of the ball at impact. Best of luck! Nate | TSG Instructor

Hands have got to be in front of ball on impact. That’s the tennis racket drill clay talks about. Bow the left wrist and get the right wrist back. I’ve been following Clay for 4 years now and it plain out works. Easiest way I’ve found do get my hands in front was switching to a stronger grip. I switched from a neutral grip. You’ll be able to control the face better and you can really drive the face into the ball
