Flattened and gave a little lag and nearly every shot from a medium bucket had a slight draw and 300+ according to the range flag nearly dead straight. I haven't hit that consistently with a rifle let alone my driver. Felt goofy at first, I'll admit but can't argue with results. Great tips!

yes, the idea of trying to connect the elbow with the right side is not a good one. and, the taller you are the more cramped the swing becomes. but, strangely enough the right arm shouldn't swing back at all in the backswing- until the left side of the forearm is facing directly in front of you, as you get towards the top of the backswing. when we waggle the club the heel pad of the left hand presses to the left and pulls the right forearm to the left. this establishes control with the heel pad. the club is returned to the address position by pressing in with the joint of the left wrist. the heel pad resists against the wrist joint to prevent it from taking control. the heel pad establishes full control when it does this; but, the wrist joint, in turn, resists against the heel pad. in the takeaway the heel pad presses to the left, just as it does in the waggle, but with less force, and the joint of the left wrist pushes back. the heel pad pulls against the right forearm and the wrist joint pushes against the lower part of the right arm. and, it is this that folds the right arm. heel pad control, in the takeaway, creates the swing arc; and, this ensures that the heel pad will be pressing directly down on the club when it is parallel to the target line. downward pressure on the club with the heel pad then creates the wrist cock and continues the club on its arc. this fully extends the left arm, ensuring that the left arm is straight at the top. one of your big power secrets is in the way your right leg works in the downswing. it moves towards the target, in the start of your downswing, and then seems to come to a stop, as you get into the hitting area. then, it speeds up again. it's all in the way the "inside muscles" of the leg work, and the release of the club. all good players do it; but, somethings just have to remain secret.

I have a physical limitation in my RT arm it only straightens to 45* and closes to about 60* (RT-handed player) I to have been tucking my rt elbow to my side during backswing with thought it helps to keep my swing going out and not across the ball. Because of my limitation, my club at backswing is almost vertical. What can you recommend to increase power for my condition?

I would try to get as much shoulder and hip turn as possible and only tuck that right elbow on the downswing. Best of luck! Nate | TSG Instructor

ok Clay i have to report my results here. i just broke my personal record for the driver last night on the range. and not just once, but i was hitting bombs all night. previously i was doing 180yd if i was lucky and not slicing most of the time. last night i was hitting fairly straight consistently at 220-240. it finally clicked for me with that drill at 1:30. i wasnt reaching high enough before which caused by pecs to get in the way --now i can reach back much further. that tip PLUS the conscious rolling of the club (bowed wrist) completely solved the slice problem for me. thank you!

Hey!!!! This is the nexus of my problems. I’ve had the incorrect concept of the backswing my whole life. I’ve been trying to swing back and around my body resulting in a horizontal shoulder turn. Instead, since I have a forward tilt, I should be swinging up which would result in swinging around my body with a vertical shoulder rotation.

3:30 ok your shitty swing carries about as far as my maximum consistent swing lol. looks i have lots of work to do. thanks for the tip about reaching back and high to grab the "hammer". it makes sense to me. reaching to the side, seems like my pecs get in the way .

Hi Clay, Thx for youre videos's, its hard to learn but youre detailed video's make me better. Youre energy and presentation are also great and pleasent to see. I'm just an average player, play for a while but do a lot off practice since 2 years and went from hcp54 to 31 with little number of cards. Since im 49 i think thats ok. Ive got a lot off questions and things repeat in overlooking. But a main thing right now is that my checklist seems huge in mind. Then i have to start to swing but i have a problem with starting to swing, it takes too long to strike, like something holds me. Can you help me? Grtz Bas

Clay likes to lift his lead toes off of the ground to start the swing. Also, it sounds like you may be suffering from over-analysis paralysis. I'd use one of the free apps like V1 that records your swing. Compare it to other swings and find one thing to work on. Conquer and repeat. Best of luck! Nate | TSG Instructor

Alright alright alright. I have been focusing on my right elbow staying in and not get as high with my arms. I have felt like I am leaving meat on the bone with my drives. Usually topping out at 275ish but can hit it 300+ occasionally. This just might be what’s holding back that extra power. Can’t wait to try this out. Thanks! 🏌️

Clay, not necessarily to do with this video but wanted you to know that I, as being 58 y.o....with traumatic injury to my spine, surgery on my right rotator cuff, arthritic hip and not having golfed in close to 20 years.... I've pieced together a rag-tag set of clubs from Goodwill, watched many of your videos and spent about a month and a half going to the driving/practice range... I went and played a small local (Arizona) 9 hole executive course yesterday morning. The 1st hole was a 271 yard par 4....and drove the green, leaving a 15-18 foot putt. I 2-putted for a birdie!! Then, I parred the other 8 holes!!! I've never had a single lesson in my entire life and I've never finished under par...or close to it!! I just wanted you to know...don't take what you do with your videos lightly! Yesterday was one of the BEST days (and not just golfing) that I've had in a long time and your videos played a huge part in it and for that......I thank you!!

I think you misunderstood that right elbow. You can still rotate your shoulder while maintaining the right elbow in front of the chest. You're showing a situation where the shoulders doesn't rotate. You can still rotate your shoulders AND have the elbow in front of the chest.

You are right, but some of us regular golfers, like me, have folded that right elbow immediately and have experienced exactly what Clay was talking about. Been doing his tips and lessons on the Top Speed Golf system and its helped tremendously. Clay isn't speaking to top notch golfers, but to folks like me....
