    Thank you so much Gerard for sharing your comments and I really appreciate your sentiments. The best of luck to you and your golf.

    One of the best (if not the best) explanatory videos of the golf swing, brings the components of backswing, lag, impact position and follow through and together very very nicely and quite clearly. I don’t watch many golf lessons on line only Michael Breed but your is right up there. Great stuff!

    Thanks so much for your comments and I truly appreciate your feedback. You sound like you’re a fan of Homer Kelley and his book The Golfing Machine which I have been reading since 1985.

    great video, two remarks.
    the pivot pulls the club down not the hands.
    the radius of the down swing is shorter because the down swing is faster.

    This is with out a doubt, the best golf video I , believe I’ve ever seen bar none. Thank you so much for your time. This has been so helpful.

    Very thorough explanation. Thank you for putting this together.

  • golfconfidencepro 5 years ago

    Thanks Rob, I’m very pleased that many of the golfers that watch my videos enjoy them and I can only say that a lot of experience working with golfers over more than 25 years has helped me to learn how to share information in a meaningful way. As always I appreciate you taking the time to share your comments with me and wish you continued success with your golf.

    This and your other videos are enormously helpful. I’ve watched them most of the morning and just went to hit balls and saw a lot of improvement in my swing and impact position. I’ve taken lessons with a number of teaching professionals, but your videos easily constitute the best instruction I’ve ever seen. It’s very generous of you to post these to youtube. Thanks, Rob

  • golfconfidencepro 5 years ago

    It is so good to read that you have taken up this great game and I wish you many happy moments learning and developing your game so you can enjoy the walk even more.
    Thanks for sharing your comments and I’m very pleased that the video has helped you.

    I have recently started playing golf (about two months) and this breakdown of the swing was a huge help. Knowing that at impact, the cocked wrists go past the initial line of address was the single most contributor to fewer fat shots at the range today! Many thanks!

  • golfconfidencepro 5 years ago

    Thanks for sharing your comments and I’m very pleased you enjoyed the video. I wish you much success with it.

    Great explanation. Very clear and concise. Now to accomplish.

  • golfconfidencepro 5 years ago

    Have a look at my YouTube video “PGA Tours: The Golf Swing Lag Technique which will take you through a routine that will help you to learn the key positions. Best of luck with it and thanks for sharing your comments.

  • Rob Moore 5 years ago

    Nice study, which drills do you recommend to practise in attempt to learn these key positions?

  • golfconfidencepro 5 years ago

    Thanks for your question An. The physics of the driver and iron swing are similar and the only real difference being a forward ball position and a flatter swing plane. Other than that they’re very much alike.

  • An Hong 5 years ago

    Should this swing be the same with the driver? Thx.

  • MaxGravitas 5 years ago

    Thanks,I’ll check it out.

  • golfconfidencepro 5 years ago

    The best drill is my Youtube video titled: PGA Tours: The Golf Swing Lag Technique which you can find by typing the title into search on the Youtube page.

  • MaxGravitas 5 years ago

    What’s the best drill for learning how to get your hands ahead of the ball at impact?

  • golfconfidencepro 5 years ago

    Martin I’m really pleased that you enjoyed the video and that you gained a better understanding of leading with the left hand. Best of luck with your golf and thanks for sharing your comments.

  • Martin Seymour 5 years ago

    My golf po was trying to explain this- now I really understand why you need to pull down on the handle with my left hand- really good video, thanks

  • golfconfidencepro 5 years ago

    Thanks for your feedback Roger. Best of luck with your golf this year and when you get a moment check out my other website protourgolfcollege . com where I have lots of advanced level articles that I know you’ll enjoy.

    It still surprise me, just how many people are not aware about Golfonax Training Program (search on google), even though a lot of people improve their golf skills with this training program. Thanks to my friend who told me about Golfonax Training Program, I have earn the respect and admiration of my friends and other players.

  • Marketta Breuer 5 years ago

    Hello! Thanks a lot for this helpful video. By the way, I hear a lot of people keep on talking about Golfonax Training Program (just google it), but I’m not sure if it is good. Have you thought about this golf training known as Golfonax Training Program? I have heard many unbelivable things about it.

  • KJ Fogarty 5 years ago

    Thanks again!!!! By the way I love your invention (tour stiker), and tutorials. You and Jimmy Ballard are the best at explaining the swing!

  • KJ Fogarty 5 years ago

    Chuck, thanks for the remider about hovering the blade as opposed to resting fully on the ground. I just played two rounds and could not hit my irons well at all, normally I hover the head and hit the ball crisp. This is a major point that will cause weak fat/thin ugly iron shots,.

  • Martin Chuck 5 years ago

    I hear ya! I’m sure there are a bunch of pros that know this stuff, but it certainly is published in many places. Thanks for the note.

  • remmy100 5 years ago

    amazing how no one else really emphasizes this. Good stuff

  • Martin Chuck 5 years ago

    That’s a good question I get all the time. Some folks do that, but the great majority start in an address alignment so they can get some dynamics in the backswing to load the shaft.

  • secrettogolf 5 years ago

    Chuck love the product and I am a TGM student.One question,why not just set up at impact and then start your swing from there=Handle ahead of the ball 20 degrees?

  • Martin Chuck 5 years ago

    Check out my reply to Bernie. I have some drills in that video. Take care.

  • aflewitt 5 years ago

    Great analysis – would have been all round great if there were a few drills to show how to ‘educate’ the hands.
