You are currently watching a video about the most basic way to swing a golf club, if your a beginner watch this.

If your interested 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.

Also golf school dates have been allocated to the website which can be found on the website too.

I’m setting up a social forum where golfers can help each other and i’ll be there to help too if your interested in this then follow me on the links below and i’ll post more details.

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.

The only training aids I suggest are useful is the Gforce golf training aids link can be found below:

I like the Speed swing trainer too if your interested follow the link below and use code


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.

Nice, straightforward, and simple. But understanding how much trouble the initial setup can get one into trouble can be a frustrating thing to understand, even for the accomplished golfer. An unknowing slightly open club face for example can destroy the greatest of intentions, and the prettiest swings. But if it was simple, would it be fun?
The initial grip, the beginning, the setup, vital.

ian green says:

luv the videos , personally i dont think these things are too basic ,when my swing feels off , i tend to look to see if all these basic things are right

Delen Boyd says:

Good instruction. Is your approach what many call a "strong" grip since you seem to place the thumb to the right of the club face line?

Bryan Rickerten says:

I find this video very informative. I would love to see you follow up this video fairly soon with a video covering the next step for learning the golf swing.

Gary Smith says:


MJB says:

Good video. I had "thought" about managing the clubface with my lead hand for years, then had an aha moment when I instead started thinking about my trial hand. See how your right palm looks at 3:07? If in your mind you think about that right palm as coming into the ball bent at the wrist and at the same orientation as your clubface, it feels powerful and is more intuitive for right handers. And it gives you a tool for thinking about shaping shots as you get more advanced. Left hand still needs to go to the same place, just a little different thought process.

Peter Boehm says:

Nice refresher also for advanced players to ensure the hands are still doing what they should do

J says:

Really good explanation, find club open through impact good drill to focus on

Dave Bateman says:

I Russel i thought the shoulder left and arms chest was supposed to turn simultaneously altogether in one piece davebateman

Red Pill DIY says:

Really we need these basic reminders, cause golf is not that complicated when think about it, but in a effort to be like the golfmates, like the pros, we skip over basic concepts that build a solid, straight and repeatable golf swing. And might I add you have to spend some time doing the wrong thing entill you can really understand what it feels like to do the right thing if that makes any sense.

Craig R says:

Enjoyable video. Great to refresh the basics!

Coolhand850 says:

It won't swing correctly but one way.

Max Garcia says:

does work for a driver too?

Provuze says:

So early wrist cock is good?

Oliver says:

Very good video as always, and for all levels.
But Knowing than >80% of the PGA players have a close grip. Do they think the same way at the impact: “your watch faces the target”?It may have balanced point and it could be the case if we compress the ball advancing our hands before the club? Or they think/feel with another part of the hand, like more on the left part at impact…?

Moreover, for strong right lead hand(ex-tennis player), it might be easier to think hand palms and certain fingers for impact/release… or we lose in terms of precision and consistency or it is more important to create/build a left-hand feeling? Thanks a lot.

Will R says:

I had a terrible round on Sunday and was feeling sorry for myself. I watched several of your videos since then Russell and the wrist hinge tip was the biggest takeaway (pun absolutely intended) for me. I took that to the course this morning and was 14 shots better than Sunday. Thank you!

Steve McCabe says:

The hand movement is really critical to everything Russell has been advocating. I couldn’t get his other instructions to hang together until this video. I’ve seen the light! Hallelujah!!

Patrick Traynor says:

So why not start where you finish instead, wouldn’t that be easier to return to impact?

M. Lymann says:

Russel articulates the wrist hinge/cock concisely. Great instructions.

Tom Settles says:

So you advocate an early wrist set in the backswing?

초짜프로(82년생 KPGA도전기) says:

Very easy lesson!! Thanks~

Sean M says:

So you’re not an advocate of a “one piece” takeaway?
