How to Hit the 3 Wood (Fairway Wood)

For most golfers, hitting a 3 wood off the fairway is a scary proposition! But the reality is that hitting a fairway wood is no different than any other club in the bag except for the driver – and even that is debatable.

The key to solid fairway wood strikes is to HIT DOWN on the ball exactly as you would an iron.

Take a look at this video of me hitting down on a 13 degree titleist fairway metal below. You will note that I’m hitting down on the ball as I take a divot in front of the ball, and the ball comes out very low.

Also note the ball position – it’s in the same place I would hit a pitching wedge. Most people don’t understand ball position, so let’s talk about it.  How to hit 3 wood off the deck.

 

 

Ball position can vary from shot to shot if you want to alter the shape or trajectory. BUT for a stock shot, the ball should always be in the same place from front to back.

That’s because, all things considered equal, the bottom of the divot ideally will always bottom out at the widest point in the downswing, which is a line straight down from the middle of the left shoulder socket for right handed golfers.

Now, you can easily alter this position through any number of movements, but if you have a natural release of the club – ie. you’re not casting, flipping, etc. – and you have good swing mechanics, the divot will bottom out here every time.

When I do my RST golf clinics, this is one of the key fundamentals I demonstrate to my students.

I start swinging the club back and forth with my left arm only. Without fail, my divot bottoms out in exactly the same place every single time as long as I don’t alter it.

Think of it as a grandfather clock and a pendulum. Your left shoulder is the pivot point, and the club is the pendulum. As long as the pivot point is fixed in space, the club bottoms out in the same place, and solid contact is a certainty.

Now, it should be said that the right arm coming onto the club to take its grip can and does move the bottom of the arc back slightly as the the two pivot points counter balance each other, but if you properly release the club with the right hand, the amount is not overly significant.

So, long story short, if you want to start smashing 3 woods off the deck and start reaching those long par 5s in two, you need hit down on the ball to ensure solid contact, and you need to put the ball in the proper position.

If you don’t know what that is, check out this article and video on proper golf ball position at setup.

Does Jim Furyk Still Have It?

Jim Furyk, by all accounts, has had a great season this year on the PGA Tour. Unfortunately, it’s marred by his blowing the lead at the 2012 US Open and on the final hole against Matt Kuchar at Firestone. Now, once again, Furyk is in the lead at the Tour Championship and everyone must be asking themselve, “Will it happen again?”

No one likes to see collapses like Furyk’s and Adam Scott’s at the Open Championship, but it is a natural part of sports. You can’t have the good without the bad along the way. I, for one, wish Furyk the best and hope he closes the deal this week. I also hope that mentally he can push those demons aside and move forward confidently. It won’t be easy having two heart breaking defeats in recent memory. I do fear that if it comes down to the 18th hole again like it did a few weeks ago, that we may have to witness an even bigger collapse than the previous two because this one could be worth $10 million bucks and the Tour Championship!

A lot of people knock Furyk’s swing, and it is definitely not pretty or something myself, or anyone else for that matter, would ever teach a student. However, one thing should be taken from Jim Furyk’s swing this week – he has one of the most square paths through the hitting area of any PGA Tour player. TrackMan has measured his path as close to 0.0 degrees square and that’s one of the main reasons the Furyk is still on the Tour. He’s not a great putter, his short game is lacking, but if you have a square path, lots of good things can happen.

To learn more about what a square path is and how to get it, check out this great article: Building a square path with a FlightScope Launch Monitor

PHILOSOPHY:

The golf swing is one of the most complex athletic movements in all of sports. As a golf instructor, it is not only my job to simplify this movement for you, but to make sure that you are performing it in the safest and most powerful way possible.

I believe there is only one safe and powerful way to swing the golf club, based on the anatomical absolutes of the body and scientific evidence, not my personal opinions about what a golf swing should look like.

During our lesson, I will use the latest in video analysis to quickly identify the swing characteristics that need improvement and then create a plan to help you implement these changes.

At the end of each lesson, you will receive a summary with a list of the drills you should work on. These summaries will be viewable at any time via your own personal swing locker within my online academy and, if you own an iPhone or Android phone, I will also forward these summaries via text message so that you can take them to the range for reference.

 

BACKGROUND IN GOLF:

My grandfather introduced me to the game at age 9, but it was not until age 12 that I fell in love with the game. I began playing competitively as a freshman at Dos Pueblos High School and also took part in many junior events around Southern California.

I started my career in the golf business as an Assistant Professional at Twin Lakes Golf Course in Santa Barbara, California, in 1998. I received my Class A PGA Membership in July of 2005, graduating from the PGA of America’s Professional Golf Management Program.

My years of experience in all areas of the golf business have led me to my true love and passion, which is teaching people the game.

Pro Golfer Breaks Neck – Vows Return to Golf

START HERE: “Creating Lag in the Downswing Secret” Video

I’m Chuck Quinton, and on June 11, 2011, I almost died.

Over the course of the next few days, I almost died 3 more times.

It’s amazing how quickly life can change. One instant all is well, the next you’re laying in the ER and overhear, “Bed 19 is going to need a neuro consult. He broke C1 in three places.”

My first thought was, “Oh man, poor bastard!” Then, as I watched my wife’s face completely drain of blood and turn pale white, my next thought was, “Oh f#&k, what bed am I in again?”

How I used to spend my days snowboarding.

Life was going very well for me on June 11, 2011. It was opening day at the Valmont Bike Park in Boulder, CO.

I had spent my last few summers in Colorado; originally as the Teaching and Playing Professional at Castle Pines Golf Club, and later as a competitive downhill mountain biker. But once I heard about Valmont, I knew I had to move there for the summer so I could practice my 360′s and backflips on my mountain bike every day.

Now, you may ask yourself, “Why the hell is a former professional golfer and well known golf instructor risking his life mountain biking?”

The simple answer is, there’s more to life than golf, and I was a professional snowboard mountaineer long before I was ever a pro golfer. I’ve always had a penchant for thrill seeking, and my love for mountain biking knew no rival.

But things change…

I had been waiting for opening day at Valmont literally for months. I couldn’t wait to launch over the huge wooden and dirt jumps.

I had stopped playing professional golf in 2009 after a busy summer teaching at Castle Pines because I simply got burnt out. Teaching and playing every day while throwing in a few tournaments here and there had taken their toll on me mentally, and I needed a change of pace.

Getting back into competitive mountain biking was the perfect escape, and I started racing downhill in 2010. My last two races of the season I placed 1st and 4th, and so when the 2011 season was ready to start, I was fired up to whoop some ass. I could hardly contain myself.

And then it happened…

chuck quinton

Me one week before the “accident,” jumping a 21 foot gap on my downhill bike.

Opening day at Valmont was a big affair. Hundreds of people were there, and thankfully, so were the paramedics.

Valmont is a “big boy” freeride style park with wooden and dirt jumps nearly 10 feet tall, so the chances of getting hurt are pretty high. But the chances of having fun are even higher.

I got there early that morning and was riding all the lines, which range from Small to Large, by mid-morning.

My first run on one of the XL lines was also my last.

Having hit some big jumps and feeling comfortable, I worked over to an XL line that had a good sized drop with a 10 foot gap that then ran into another jump with two gaps.

As I came off the first drop, I was cruising with some serious speed. So much so, that I felt I was going to overshoot the next gap and fly into the face of the next jump.

I started to scrub speed as I approached the gap and then as I left the lip of the jump, I “Bubba Scrubbed” the lip to avoid going too far. Unfortunately, I misjudged my speed, came up short and landed head first onto the wooden jump.

This is the drop I went off just before the gap where I crashed.

I’ve wrecked HARD literally hundreds of times on my mountain bikes over the past 20 years of riding. This one was nothing spectacular.

As I gathered myself off the ground, I did my usual “inventory check” – toes still work, legs still work, arms are good, SHIT, I broke my hand…. I could see a huge lump through the glove on my left hand and immediately knew it was broken.

This was a major bummer because I was supposed to be going to Whistler Canada in two weeks. Whistler is like mountain biking nirvana, and I was devastated knowing that I might not be able to ride.

As I stood there lamenting over my broken pinky bone, the paramedics had arrived and were trying to get me to sit down and started asking a bunch of annoying questions.

“What day is it? Do you know where you are? What’s your name?”

“I’m at Valmont, and it’s opening day, man! Look, I broke my hand and may not be able to go to Whistler now!”

The picture I posted of my hand from the back of the ambulance.

For some reason, the paramedics didn’t seem to care much about my hand and kept asking me the same annoying questions over and over. After about 5 minutes of this, I started to realize that I was having a more difficult time focusing on what they were saying, and that caused me a little alarm.

I’ve been injured countless times over the years, so dealing with “mental check” questions is nothing new. But once I started “zoning out” a bit, I thought I better take some precautions.

So, I let the paramedics know I knew what they were doing but that I was having a harder time focusing on their questions and that I felt I “had rung my bell pretty good.”

My helmet was cracked, but I had broken three helmets over the past year and was little worse for the wear, so I didn’t give it much thought. I told the paramedics that I needed to go sit for a while. They wanted to get the stretcher and carry me down, but I insisted on walking.

“I’m no pussy, I can walk,” I told them.

As I walked down the side of the hill to the ambulance with a paramedic holding each of my arms, I was still really concerned about my left hand. Apart from not being able to go to Whistler in a couple weeks, I was STILL a golfer and instructor and the left hand is kind of important for controlling the club face!

So, as I sat in the ambulance waiting on my wife to bring the car around to take me to the hospital, I took a picture of my hand and posted it on Facebook to let my mountain biking buddies know what had happened.

Immediately, they started calling my wife, asking for details on the accident. She was in a panic. She’s seen me crash a LOT, but never seen me not just bounce back up and keep riding.

She tells my friends I’m sitting in the ambulance and that the paramedics are going to take me to the hospital. At this point, I’m still convinced I’m fine and my wife can take me as it’s only a few miles away, and I didn’t want her to freak out as I’ve NEVER taken an ambulance ride for anything.

But once she arrived with the car to pick me up, the paramedics had her convinced that I needed to be strapped down to a stretcher and put in a neck collar immediately and that they needed to drive me to the hospital.

“It’s no big deal, I just broke my hand and my head’s a little woozy,” I told them.

They weren’t buying it, and I could see the look on my wife’s face that I was going to lose this battle, so I let them strap me down and take me in the ambulance.

For the record, the ride in my wife’s X5 would have been much less painful. Do they not put suspension in those things?

From there, things went downhill – and not the fun kind of downhill.

Back to that poor bastard in bed 19…

I spent about 3 hours in the ER having X-Rays, CT scans, MRI’s, the works. After we overheard the ER doc say that I had broken my neck, he came into the room and told me that they needed to take me to ICU and keep me overnight.

My wife, who had just returned from puking in the bushes outside after hearing the bad news, looked terrified when he said ICU. So, I told her it’s no big deal, and I’m sure they do it for everyone just as a precaution, don’t worry about it. After all, my track record had proven that I was invincible, and I could handle just about any injury; sort of like Wolverine from X-Men.

The next morning I awoke to my “neuro consult”; some short, young looking dude in jeans and cowboy boots named Dr. Alex Mason. He told me I had broken C1 in five places, not three, and that I had two options:

  1. I could wear a halo for 3 months due to the nature and instability of my fracture and possibly still need surgery at the end of the three months, or
  2. I could do a C1-C2 fusion surgery now.

After consulting with good friend Dr. Brian McKeon, the team doctor for the Boston Celtics and member of the Rotary Swing Golf Medical Advisory Panel, we opted for surgery now.

At 6 am the next morning, I was wheeled into the OR to have 4 bolts and two titanium rods placed in my neck. I figured it would make me even more indestructible having some titanium bits, but there was one part that wasn’t completely clear to me when we were making the decision to have surgery – would I be able to play golf again?

To be honest, I was much more concerned as to when I could get back on my mountain bike as I was still burnt out on golf, but looking back a year later, this one moment was going to have a dramatic impact on the rest of my life that I didn’t realize until long after.

You see, the C1-C2 joint is where you get 50-60% of your rotation for your head, and they were about to bolt these two vertebrae together – permanently. I was clearly too high on morphine or whatever they were giving me at the time to realize that I was going to have a damn hard time hitting a golf ball if I could only turn my head half way.

How the hell would I even see the ball at the top of my swing? Spoiler alert – I wouldn’t.

Apparently, I wasn’t as invincible as I had thought because I bled out twice on the operating room table, requiring them to stop the surgery and give me more than two liters of blood to keep me alive.

Given that I could’ve died from the crash itself, as a large piece of broken vertebrae was perilously close to my spinal cord, and I stubbornly insisted on walking down the hill to the ambulance, and that I had now bled out twice from the trauma, you’d think things couldn’t get much worse.

You’d be wrong.

My neck after the surgery

My neck after the surgery. Don’t worry, it’s worse than it looks!

Once I was stabilized and the surgery completed, they told my wife that we’d be able to go home in a couple days, and all would be well.

Not only did I not go home, I spent the next 9 days in the ICU with a 102+ fever.

Pulmonologists, cardiologists, infectious disease specialists. They all had their hands at trying to figure out what was wrong with me.

After 9 days, my fever finally broke and I was transferred to a regular room on the neuro floor. One of the doctors decided that I had suffered a blood clot but passed it, but didn’t think I would survive the “next one.” He suggested that my wife call any family that may want to see me in case I didn’t make it.

Strike four.

After 3 days in the ICU, the nationwide mortality rate goes up exponentially, statistically speaking. I had just survived 9 days and four near death experiences. I was ready to get the f#*k out of this place.

But I wasn’t done with my problems yet. I couldn’t swallow.

There was so much trauma and swelling that I literally couldn’t swallow any food, so they had to feed me through something called a “PICC line.” Basically, they put a tube into a vein in my chest to get nutrients directly into my blood stream.

After not being able to eat anything for a couple days, I was getting desperate to get some semblance of food in my mouth. I started bribing the orderlies to sneak me a popsicle. I offered one guy a thousand dollars if he could get me a root beer flavored popsicle – I wasn’t kidding.

Eventually, after 12 days in the hospital, I was sent home – and that’s where this story really begins.

You see, I’ve had two more surgeries since this one, but we’ll get back to those soon enough.

Now you have a brief little history of what has provoked this re-dedication to the one sport that has always tugged at my heart strings in a little different way than anything else.

Golf is addicting. Maddening. Enlightening.

But more importantly, golf is my life.

It always has been since I first picked up a club at 14 years of age. And it took this near death x4 experience for me to realize it.


Above is a video clip of my swing before the accident while I was the Instructor at Castle Pines Golf Club.

Ever since I first picked up a golf club, I’ve literally been obsessed with the mechanics of the swing. I’ve always been that person that HAD to understand HOW something worked.

I’m one of the most skeptical people you’ll ever meet, so someone telling me to do something with my golf swing “just because that’s the way it works” is far from being a satisfactory answer for me.

This compulsion to understand the HOW and WHY of how things worked is exactly what led to the development of the Rotary Swing Tour (RST) golf swing system – a swing based 100% on science, research and fact and nothing more, nothing less.

But what does that have to do with me breaking my neck? It’s this research into the biomechanics of the swing that has actually allowed me to return to golf and even play competitively again – pain free.

RST has been my life’s work and is my gift to the golf world.

My work has lead to thousands of golfers being able to hit the ball like they never dreamed, and do so effortlessly and devoid of pain because I used the help of Ph. D. Biomechanists from the US Olympics Committee and orthopedic surgeons from around the US to help me develop my swing system.

Anything I’ve ever had a question on regarding how the swing should be taught, I would ask them and get a medical reason for why it should or shouldn’t be done this way to prevent injury or pain.

Which has led me back to my own swing. A swing that has been admired by thousands but now must evolve once again.

If I’m ever to play golf again at a high level, I MUST follow the RST program exactly as I’ve laid it out, or I simply won’t be able to play. My injuries (we’ve only scratched the surface on those) are crippling, and I’m only 36 years old.

But that’s why my story is so important, that’s why I’m sharing it with the world for the first time.

My story is YOUR story.

No, maybe you didn’t break your neck, but if you’re like most golfers, you hurt after golf. You have aches and pains that keep you from fully enjoying the game that you love, that we all love.

And the truth of the matter is that it shouldn’t hurt! Golf is not a contact sport!

I’ve helped thousands of golfers over my 17 years of teaching completely rid themselves of golf-swing-related pain by teaching them the RST swing mechanics, and now it’s my turn to benefit from my research.

“But wait!” you might be thinking. “You founded RST; you developed it; don’t you already swing RST?”

Yes and no.

You see, I had some things in my swing that I used to squeak out a little more power here and there, like excessively fast body rotation (think Tiger Woods’ fast hips), that are simply not an option for me anymore.

My neck structure is permanently damaged, already arthritic, and the biomechanics of my spine are permanently changed. To make matters worse, I suffered nerve damage in the accident and lost 90% of the muscle mass of my infraspinatus, supraspinatus and teres minor on the left side.

To make a long story short, I have very limited use of my left arm in the way that it is commonly taught to use it in the golf swing. Bonus – using RST, I don’t need it!

If you’ll also remember, I severely broke the 5th metacarpal in my left hand, making it nearly impossible for me to control the club face with my left hand, as it has the strength of a two year old child.

A lot of people would pack it in, call it a day, say they’ve had a good run and pick up fishing. God knows that’s the direction my wife is pushing me in. But I hate fishing.

I NEED the challenge and competition that sports bring, and since it’s unsafe for me to mountain bike, snowboard, or do anything else I loved to do, I’m rededicating my life to playing golf at a high level.

Extra hardware in my neck. If I can play with this stuff in my neck, I can help you play with your injury!

Since my accident, I’ve played 7 rounds of golf.

My first round back was 8 months after my accident, in February 2012. I shot 81.

My longest drive was 240 yards, and I averaged about 230 off the tee. I used to hit it 340 yards off the tee with a drive of 408 yards as my longest ever!

Hitting it like this was a shocker, but I realized instantly that I missed this stupid f*%king game.

My next three rounds each got better. My fifth round of golf was the Colorado State Open Qualifier – LOL.

Yep, my fifth round of golf I decided to try and qualify for a professional golf tournament. Hey, if it’s not clear that my decision making process skills may be somewhat lacking at times, then you should re-read this article from the beginning.

Setting myself up for failure, I shot 75 with an eagle on a par 5 on the second hole in July of 2012 in the qualifier.  I finished 28th out of 85 and missed qualifying by three strokes.

Normally, I’d have been pissed, but instead, I had a sense of peace about this round. The qualifier was just over a year since my accident, and I had only played 4 rounds of golf over the past 13 months.

I had survived a terrible accident, hadn’t practiced hardly at all and was back playing golf at a professional level PAIN FREE.

Now, I’m not proud of a 75, but given the circumstances, it could’ve been a lot worse.

I couldn’t see the ball at the top of my swing, and I had lost 25 pounds of muscle since my accident. But after all this I was relatively competitive, and my neck didn’t bother me one bit.

Now, it’s hard for me to explain to you what it’s like to play golf after breaking your neck and not seeing the ball at the top of your backswing, but let me assure that it adds significant challenge to an already difficult game.

But I had overcome it, and if I could, so could anyone else. My RST swing mechanics allowed me to return to golf and play at a reasonable level, and they can do the same for you NO MATTER your injury or ailment.

There is NO WAY I would’ve been able to play golf with the way most golf instructors teach the swing today. The amount of aggressive body rotation puts a tremendous amount of shear force on the spine, and as you can imagine, that’s simply not an option for someone with a severe spine injury.

But maybe you don’t have an injury, just a sore back, or sore neck after a round of golf. I have neither.

In fact, I have no soreness whatsoever, and trust me, my body’s wrecked.

In fact, I’m going in for my FOURTH spine surgery in a year on Wednesday, September 5th, 2012. Apart from the problems with my neck, I was told at 31 years old that I needed to have my left hip replaced by an orthopedic surgeon.

Golf KILLED my hip to the point that I thought about quitting. Instead, I started delving into the biomechanics of the golf swing, and RST was born.

Today, I have no hip pain after golf and that doctor can shove it. My left hip feels just fine.

Quinton spine surgery  #3

Quinton spine surgery #3. This one was just 2 weeks ago, and I’m already going in for another one!

RST swing mechanics have saved my game and my body, and they can save yours. They’ve saved thousands of golfers’ bodies already.

My golf instruction website, http://www.RotarySwing.com, has about 40,000 members, golfers like you and me, who don’t want to be sore after a round of golf anymore. Golfers who believe the golf swing should be effortless and enjoyable and should NEVER cause you any pain or soreness.

Well, I’m living proof that the RST golf swing is a completely safe and pain free, powerful way to swing the golf club, and I’m going to continue to prove it so that my story can help save the bodies of thousands more.

Over the coming months, I’m going to continue to blog about my return to golf.

I’ll talk in more detail about my injuries and how RST has allowed me to overcome every single one (did I mention my left shoulder has been dislocated more than 30 times?) and play completely pain free golf and still hit the ball 300 yards off the tee as I’ve been doing right up until this last surgery two weeks ago.

I’d still be playing right now if I didn’t have 13 staples in my neck.

I’m going to show you my swing as it looks today, and I’ll talk about the changes I’ve had to make because of my injuries so that they may help you with your swing and any injuries you may have suffered.

Join me in this journey. I don’t know where it will end.

Perhaps I’ll go back to playing some professional tournaments with a little encouragement from you guys.

Perhaps I’ll just enjoy the game and win my club championship again.

RST has given my body and mind a new lease on life, so I can enjoy the game we all love once again.

But more importantly, what will RST do for YOU and your body? What’s your story going to be?

I have literally thousands of testimonials on the website from golfers whose games have been transformed by RST.

Will you be next? There’s only one way to find out…

If you’ve got golf-swing-related pain, want to prevent golf-swing-related injuries in the future or just want to learn more about RST, visit my site at http://www.RotarySwing.com and get a FREE video membership to learn the basics of RST online and see what a biomechanically ideal swing can feel like.

Please note, if you’d like to discuss this blog, DON’T ask Christina questions over the phone. That is my wife, and she’s had to deal with this enough. You can discuss this post on our Facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/RotarySwingcom/208473937768.

Golfer Turns to Rotary Swing Tour for Answers after Working with David Leadbetter for 6 Years

Golfers who are very serious about their games and understand the swing well typically stick with an instructor they believe shares similar ideas for a long time. Ik-Joon Lee falls under that category. After working with David Leadbetter for 6 years at the IMG Academy which costs over $50k per year for the privilege, Ik-Joon felt he was not getting the answers to his swing he was looking for. He always struggled with a weak, high ball flight and getting stuck on the downswing. After 6 years of being told his swing “looked great and it’s just in your head – you need to play more often”, he finally took a break from the game and believed what Leadbetter and his instructors were telling him.

It’s pretty frustrating to spend over $350,000 to be told essentially, “there’s nothing else we can do for your swing, it must just be you.” So when Ik-Joon got in touch with me for lessons he was pretty excited to find out that I DIDN’T believe that it was in his head but it WAS in fact in his poor mechanics. In fact, I saw quite a LOT wrong with his swing and felt that we needed to do some serious work on it. Over the next week, the transformation was quite incredible. Below is a pic of how we changed his impact position to produce a penetrating ball flight by using the drills and videos on this website. To find out more and read the rest of the story, visit http://www.rotaryswing.com/golf-instruction/golfbiomechanics/former-david-leadbetter-student-turns-to-rotary-swing.php

Golfers Wanting Connecticut Golf Lessons Near Middletown Will Learn the Perfect Swing from an Instructor that Completed Rotary Swing Golf Instructor Training

Aaron Mannes, who provides golf lessons in Middletown, Connecticut, has passed the first Rotary Swing Tour (RST) Golf Instructor Certification course and teaches the safest, most efficient swing humanly possible.

Middletown, Connecticut | February 24, 2012—Aaron Mannes became the fifteenth instructor to earn Level 1 RST Golf Certification on February 20, 2012.  Mannes is the second teacher in Connecticut to complete RotarySwing.com’s golf instructor training program.

Mannes has rebuilt his swing using the RST system, cutting his handicap by more than eight strokes and getting low into the single digits.  His students will thus be afforded the chance to work with an instructor who fully understands the journey they’ll be on as they begin to improve their swings.

In addition to learning “the building blocks to build a repeatable, efficient swing” using the online RST golf instruction videos at RotarySwing.com, Mannes understands the tremendous benefits of getting expert eyes on a student’s swing.

“As I progressed in the RST, nothing helped me more than my in-person lessons and online lessons to point out what I was missing,” Mannes said.

Mannes joins nine other instructors in the United States and five more internationally who have been certified in the two years since the program’s inception.  The speed at which Rotary Swing Golf Instructor Certification is spreading across the globe is not surprising to the company’s founder, Chuck Quinton.

“The bulk of our business originates from our strong web presence at RotarySwing.com, which doesn’t limit us to any geographic region,” said Quinton.  ”Combine that with an online golf instructor certification process for our level one training that meets instructors’ needs for affordability and convenience, and I expect to see RST Certified Instructors everywhere golf is played.”

Quinton indicated that the golf instructor training program has received significant interest since it launched in February 2010 and is excited about the opportunities ahead for his business as well as for the RST Certified Instructors.

“The RST golf instructor certification promises to be a great vehicle for growth, not just for RotarySwing.com, but also for instructors teaching our methods,” said Quinton.  “The mutually beneficial nature of our certification program promises to drive its success.”

In addition to providing objective, scientific facts about golf instruction and the swing to improve golf coaching techniques, Rotary Swing Golf offers Certified Instructors promotional benefits to boost their revenues.  These golf instructors realize significant visibility through listings on the heavily trafficked RotarySwing.com, inclusion in weekly email newsletters to thousands of golfers, and postings on social media like Facebook and RotarySwing.com’s Golf Forums and Golf Instruction Blog.

“Not many golf instructors have websites that pull in thousands of visitors each day,” Quinton said.  “We can help them get their names out to potential students without spending a boatload on web design, search engine optimization, and online advertising.”

Ultimately, though, an instructor’s success comes down to the quality of golf instruction provided, and Quinton went to great lengths to ensure only the most knowledgeable golf instructors will earn certification.

According to the RST Golf Instructor Certification Level 1 page on RotarySwing.com, “The information that must be learned just to pass Level 1 requires on average 100 hours of study on swing mechanics, physics, anatomy, biomechanics, physiology and more.”  The website indicates that these fields represent “many disciplines typical golf instructor training neglects.”

Tiger Tries to Correct the Pull (2012 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-AM)

Well, it appears Tiger is listening and read my post last week ;-) As I told everyone last year when Tiger first started working with Sean Foley, his misses were going to be very specific and I described in my last post how he could fix them. Watching him at the 2012 Pebble Beach Pro-Am today, it’s clear he’s going the route of trying to change his release which was really the one of the least desirable options.

Right now, Tiger is setting way left and trying to cut everything back to the right by delaying the release of his hands. Now, it’s possible he’s hitting everything left to right because that ball flight fits Pebble well. But I suspect he’s trying to fix his miss rather than just try and change his release for one tournament, but we’ll never know. In any case, setting up at the left rough and then hitting cuts, which has lead to quite a few wipes that go nowhere (240 yard 3 wood off the tee earlier in the day) is quite a big compromise that will come with consequences.

As I mentioned, the weak wipe that spins a ton and floats up and to the right is going to happen, but worse, is when he doesn’t hold off his release enough or he actually does release the club properly that ball is over everyone’s head in the gallery left. One other side note to mention that is exasperating this issue is Woods has way too much shaft lean now at impact. A part from giving him an angle of attack that tends to be too steep, having his hands that far ahead at impact leaves the face open. While it will help him hold the face open enough to hit a cut, when not timed properly, he’s going to come down steep and wipe it short and right.

Good Luck Tiger!

Why Tiger Woods Will Keep Missing Left (Abu Dhabi 2012)

I find it interesting the changes Tiger Woods is making with Sean Foley and that he doesn’t seem to understand that he will continue to pull shots, especially with the driver if he keeps going down this road. Tiger has a great release of the club that works perfectly with the square shoulders he’s had for a long time at impact. It is the very same release I advocate with RST. However, combine that release of the club with an upper torso that is rotating through impact to an open position, and guess what you get? It’s not rocket science. The two don’t mix.

Tiger can either set up closed to the target which is a band-aid fix or stop rotating his torso through impact which is WAY more preferable. The only thing your spine hates more than compression is rotation. And the amount of force Tiger is placing on his spine requires tremendous core strength to decelerate his fast rotating torso and protect his spine. His hip will also receive more stress as he is now trying to rotate faster on that joint rather than decelerate and stabilize his pelvis at impact.

The other option is that he alters his release to more of a “hold-on” through impact to prevent the club face shutting down. This will cost him a great deal of speed and efficiency in his swing, requiring him to rotate even faster with his upper torso to get reasonable club head speed, thus placing more load on his spine and hip. As you can, it’s a never ending spiral. The less he releases the club, the faster he has to rotate, and the faster he rotates the less he can release the club.

Out of these three options, none are desirable. He’s best off stopping the rotation of the torso through impact and allowing the club to release properly. Perhaps he will figure this out before he spends another season “in the wilderness”.

Golfers Wanting Fredericksburg, Virginia, Golf Lessons Will Learn the Perfect Swing from an Instructor that Completed Rotary Swing Golf Instructor Training

Darryl Trudeau, who provides golf lessons in Fredericksburg, Virginia, has passed the first Rotary Swing Tour (RST) Golf Instructor Certification course and teaches the safest, most efficient swing humanly possible.

Fredericksburg, Virginia | August 24, 2011—Darryl Trudeau became the twelfth instructor to earn Level 1 RST Golf Certification on August 8, 2011.  Trudeau is the first teacher in Virginia to complete RotarySwing.com’s golf instructor training program.

Trudeau has already used RST instructional methods to help golfers ranging from beginners to scratch players.  He explained that his “philosophy is to treat the causes, not the symptoms, of poor swing mechanics that limit your golfing potential.”

“Utilizing the RST methodology—based on science rather than guesswork—our goal is to teach you HOW to make your swing more powerful while requiring less effort and without relying on compensations,” Trudeau said.

Trudeau joins six other instructors in the United States and five more internationally who have been certified in the eighteen months since the program’s inception.  The speed at which Rotary Swing Golf Instructor Certification is spreading across the globe is not surprising to the company’s founder, Chuck Quinton.

“The bulk of our business originates from our strong web presence at RotarySwing.com, which doesn’t limit us to any geographic region,” said Quinton.  ”Combine that with an online golf instructor certification process for our level one training that meets instructors’ needs for affordability and convenience, and I expect to see RST Certified Instructors everywhere golf is played.”

Rotary Swing Golf Instructor Training Makes a Splash in France

Robin Cocq, of Lille, France, has passed the first Rotary Swing Tour (RST) Golf Instructor Certification course and can teach the safest, most efficient swing humanly possible.

Lille, France | June 21, 2011—Robin Cocq became the eleventh instructor to earn Level 1 RST Golf Certification on May 26, 2011, and is the first person in France who has completed the initial phase of RotarySwing.com’s golf instructor certification training.

Cocq is an excellent amateur player, currently holding a plus-one handicap and ranking 139th in France’s amateur rankings (an improvement of 69 spots since revamping his swing using the RST system).  Cocq is also a med student who has a keen interest in helping others prevent golf injuries.

“We all want to build a safe, consistent and efficient golf swing,” said Cocq.  ”We obviously need to have physics and anatomy on our side to achieve this. That’s why RST is the way to go.”

According to Cocq, at RotarySwing.com “you’ll find sound fundamentals, a learning program you can use anywhere and anytime, and instructors ready to solve your problems.”

Cocq joins three other international instructors and seven instructors in the United States who have been certified in the fifteen months since the program’s inception.  The speed at which Rotary Swing Golf Instructor Certification is spreading across the globe is not surprising to the company’s founder, Chuck Quinton.

Golfers Wanting Orlando Golf Lessons Will Learn the Perfect Swing from an Instructor that Completed Rotary Swing Golf Instructor Certification

When asked about his approach to instruction, Vincent replied, “You will learn how to swing in a safe and powerful manner. We’re not just going to make compensations to your current swing but instead fully transform it into an efficient golf machine.”
