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.”

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.”

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.

“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.”

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

Vincent Tapaoan, who provides golf lessons in Orlando, Florida, has passed the first Rotary Swing Tour (RST) Golf Instructor Certification course and teaches the safest, most efficient swing humanly possible.

Orlando, Florida | April 10, 2011—Vincent Tapaoan became the tenth instructor to earn Level 1 RST Golf Certification on March 31, 2011.  In addition to providing Orlando golf lessons, Tapaoan will offer instruction in the Space Coast area of Florida, where he will currently be the only teacher who has completed RotarySwing.com’s golf instructor certification program.

Tapaoan is very detail oriented, likely stemming from his background in mechanical engineering, and this helped him overhaul his own swing recently, bringing it extremely close to the best RST model swings.  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 change their swings.

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.”

Tapaoan joins six other instructors in the United States and three more internationally who have been certified in the twelve 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.”

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

Quebec City, Quebec | March 11, 2011—Mathieu Paradis became the ninth instructor to earn Level 1 RST Golf Certification on February 25, 2011.  Paradis, who provides lessons in both English and French, is the first person in Canada to complete the initial phase of RotarySwing.com’s golf instructor training program, adding to his already impressive teaching background.

In addition to his Level 1 RST Certification, Paradis is a Vision 54 coach, a professional golf teacher at La Tempete golf club, the University Laval men’s and women’s golf team assistant coach, and the Ste-Foy college golf team head coach.

“For my coaching philosophy, I teach a lot on the mental side of the game,” said Paradis.  He stresses that it often takes more than just having an efficient swing.  According to Paradis, struggles can still occur “if you don’t have any trust in yourself and a good commitment on your shot.”

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

Doug Molls, who provides golf lessons in Cleveland, Ohio, has passed the first Rotary Swing Tour (RST) Golf Instructor Certification course and teaches the safest, most efficient swing humanly possible.

Cleveland, Ohio | March 5, 2011—Doug Molls became the eighth instructor to earn Level 1 RST Golf Certification on February 18, 2011.  Molls is the first person in Ohio to complete the initial phase of RotarySwing.com’s golf instructor training program, largely because of his strong belief in and enthusiasm for the instructional methods taught at RotarySwing.com.

Perfect Impact Position Every Time

One of the defining hallmarks of the RST golf swing is getting into a perfect impact position, both biomechanically and from a physics point of view, every time. Here’s a pic of professional golfer Craig Morrow after his work this week with RST Founder, Chuck Quinton, at impact. Just for fun, we threw in a picture of Chuck at impact about 12 years ago in the middle and where he is today on the right. All we can say is “Ouch!” Good thing he invented RST or he wouldn’t be playing golf much longer swinging like that!

Golfers Wanting Washington/Baltimore Area Golf Lessons Will Learn Proper Biomechanics from an Instructor that Completed Rotary Swing Golf Certification

Ray Wyvill, who provides golf lessons in the metropolitan Washington/Baltimore area, added Rotary Swing Tour (RST) Golf Instructor Certification to his instruction résumé and teaches the safest, most efficient swing humanly possible.

November 23, 2010 | Shady Side, Maryland — Ray Wyvill became the sixth instructor to earn Level 1 RST Golf Certification on November 15, 2010.  Wyvill is the first person in Maryland to complete the initial phase of RotarySwing.com’s golf instructor training program.

Wyvill has significant experience instructing in fields outside of golf, where he’s a certified technical instructor.  For the past 5 years, Wyvill has been a student of Rotary Swing instruction and is well prepared to share his knowledge with others.

“Being an Instructor here is the culmination of much work and is in every sense a privilege,” said Wyvill.  “Being an Instructor gives me the opportunity to help golfers achieve their goals by facilitating the scientifically-based Rotary Swing Tour learning method.”

Wyvill joins three other instructors in the United States and two more internationally who have been certified in the nine months since the program’s inception.  The speed at which Rotary Swing Golf 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 certification process for our level one certification 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 Overview 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.”

How To Properly Learn the Golf Swing

You’ve probably heard the old saying that if people tried to learn how to make love the same way they go about learning the golf swing that the human race become extinct. Sadly, golfers have millions of dollars in lessons and rarely ever improve. No matter how good the intentions of the instructor are, if they don’t understand how to teach their students new movement patterns based on how the brain actually learns, the student has little chance of ever improving.

Rotary Swing Tour is built entirely around this concept and has developed the only learning system in the world that is based entirely on the latest neural research in how the brain learns new motor movement patterns. That’s why ALL our students make dramatic, visible swing changes that are permanent like the one you see below:

In only one day, my student pictured above was able to completely transform his entire backswing working through the simple drills I have shared in the video “5 Minutes to the Perfect Backswing“. If you’d like to learn more about how you can make these changes, visit “How to Build the Perfect Backswing“.

Former David Leadbetter Student Switches to Rotary Swing Tour

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.

Why Golf Swing Movement Instruction’s Not ALWAYS Better Than Ball Flight Instruction…

By Sam Jarman, RST Certified Instructor – Level 1

I’m writing this after reading Chuck’s excellent article about Ball flight teachers on the blog. This is perhaps the most common sense I’ve read in one place about the different approaches to teaching the golf swing.

Chuck was in turn responding to an email I received from another golf professional about a piece I recently wrote on the blog about fixing my backswing by working in the studio on the movement, rather than hitting golf balls.

Chuck’s response was very clear and black and white, as it was addressing a specific issue, that of long term improvement. Unless you have a clear understanding of the biomechanics of the golf swing and work towards implementing them correctly, you will always be chasing your tail and putting Band Aids on top of Band Aids.

As we all know, you can make any golf swing work if you are very talented and hit enough golf balls. Most of us do not have unlimited practice time and bundles of talent. I believe there is a “best”, most efficient way to swing a golf club, and at present, the Rotary Swing Tour (RST) is it. Working towards this model is the route to long term success.

However, in the “real world”, things are rarely black and white. Varying shades of grey are much more common. I’m sure Chuck will agree with me when I suggest that we as teachers come across situations every day where the teacher and student together need to make a decision as to whether a ball flight lesson is required, or a golf swing movement lesson.

As a good teacher, I feel I should be able to do both, and I know Chuck does too. The student is the customer, and unless I have the kind of relationship with the student where we can talk about what is happening in his or her game, talk about what their immediate and long term plans are and come to an agreement about exactly what direction we should take and when, I probably shouldn’t be teaching them.

I had a typical situation with a student this week. Steve is a very good player, a 1 handicap. He has a good, well grooved golf swing, but has a very shut clubface at the top of the swing and, as a result, is prone to hooks and blocks and has trouble controlling his distances with short irons.

We started working together on RST in April, but made a decision to leave the major changes till after the season had finished. We sorted out Steve’s strong grip, bad ball position, and poor balance and posture.
He has since played some good golf, culminating in him reaching the final of his club Scratch Matchplay championship.

He came for a tune up lesson this week as he was hitting his wedges poorly, with a lack of distance control and the odd bad pull. These are all symptoms of the shut clubface at the top of the swing. But the last thing I wanted to do the week before an important match was to give a golf swing movement lesson and have Steve going out and playing “Golf Swing”, rather than playing golf.

It was clear in this situation that a ball flight lesson was required. I explained to Steve what I thought, how his swing differed from the RST model, and what I wanted to do.

He agreed, so we got him to set up slightly open with his wedges, to open the face slightly at address and move the ball forward, and to exaggerate the feeling he has anyway of holding the clubface off through the ball. The result was what felt like a little fade with his wedges, the opposite of his natural drawing ball flight. Due to the loft on the clubface the ball doesn’t actually move left to right in the air, it just floats and sits, which makes distance control easier and also gives some protection against the pull, the real problem shot with a short iron.

After 45 minutes practising this ball flight, Steve started to feel like he had much better control of his distances. He will practice some more this week, and I’m confident he will play well in his final.

Next Sunday we will head into the studio and start work on the big issues in his swing, safe in the knowledge we have all winter to get them fixed and to get Steve feeling comfortable and confident before the season starts again in April.

One point which is often brought up as a justification for just teaching someone to change their ball flight is that by changing the ball flight, the golf swing movement itself will change. This has some validity. If you teach a slicer to draw the ball, eventually the movement will change to allow the club to come more from the inside.

However, I’m not sure how efficient this method of learning is, or how lasting the changes will be. I have the feeling that you would need to hit a huge number of golf shots to effect significant change. I know from my own experience over the years that it wasn’t until I learned to move properly and understood the cause and effect relationship of movement of the body and movement of the club, that I really began to get control of my ball flight.

I am absolutely committed to RST as a swing model and a “Method”, for all the reasons that Chuck explains in great detail in the blog and on the website. My long term goal for myself and for every single one of my students is to help them swing as efficiently, correctly and safely as possible. RST helps me to understand what is going wrong in a golfer’s swing, to understand the compensations which exist to allow the golfer to hit the ball well sometimes and to plan and implement a programme of improvement.

But at the same time, I still consider myself a tournament golfer, and I know how it is virtually impossible to play your best golf while thinking consciously about your swing. Chuck’s Mushin Golf articles describe a great mindset to play well. I just like to focus totally on the target and let the ball go to it.

There is a time and a place to work on the golf swing movement, and a time and place to focus on just flighting the ball to the target. It is up to the teacher and the student to communicate and come to a decision about the best way to proceed to ensure the student both enjoys his golf and improves his skills and technique in the long run.

As an RST instructor, I know I have the depth of knowledge and understanding to deliver the right lesson at the right time for all the people I work with. As a movement coach, I can give either type of lesson. A ball flight coach is more limited in his options.

Ball Flight Teachers

In the world of golf instruction, there are basically two different types of teachers – ball flight teachers and method teachers. As someone who has spent years researching and developing the golf swing, it should come as no surprise that I fall in to the latter as a method teacher. RST is a method based on science, primarily the science of anatomy and human movement. It has parameters and “laws” if you will that are in place to guide you along the path and keep you from injuring yourself and developing bad habits.

A ball flight teacher only has the laws of ball flight to guide you along the way. For instance, if you slice, the ball flight teacher may have 5 or more different ways to fix your problem. All of these “fixes” can typically be called “band-aid” fixes because they only address symptoms of poor mechanics rather than the cause. As an example, imagine the golfer who doesn’t make a full shoulder turn and so he lifts his arms very steep to the top of the backswing and then hacks down from the top with only his arms; thus producing an over the top swing plane and out to in path. The ball flight teacher may fix this by having the golfer strengthen his grip to square the clubface to the path to create a pull. No doubt, this is better than a slice, but we haven’t addressed the root cause of the problem.

An RST golf instructor would look at this problem completely differently. The first thing we would do is teach the golfer what is causing his path and plane issues, which, in this case is the lack of body rotation which adds depth to the swing. Next, we would teach the golfer exactly HOW to turn, using the correct muscles. From there, the golfer would immediately see himself in positions he has never achieved and is now on the pathway to LASTING change and improvement.

We don’t do band-aids, we teach you how to move correctly. We fix the problem, not the symptom. Proper movements create a proper plane, path, impact position, etc. Chasing after ball flight problems without fixing faulty movement patterns is no different than a doctor that treats a compound fracture by putting a band-aid over it rather than resetting the bone. If you want lasting improvement and change in your game, stop putting band-aids on it and avoid ball flight instructors because you’ll end up having to go back again and again to apply new band-aids as the old ones “fall off”.

Of course, it should be made clear that I’m not saying ball flight is unimportant. It is very important. I’m simply saying the reason golfers haven’t improved over the past 50 years is because instruction hasn’t ever addressed the root cause of the problem. The truth of the matter is that ball flight is EASY to fix once the basic proper movement patterns have been established, which is exactly what RotarySwing.com is all about. We teach people via our online learning system HOW to create this basic, very simple movement patterns that you can see below in my swing:

Chuck Quinton Golf Swing

In the video of my swing above, you can see that my movements are very simple, very efficient, and if you compared my swing to that of Tiger Woods, you’d see striking similarity (for the comparison, click Build the Golf Swing of Your Dreams). The reason is that Tiger and I both move very efficiently and that movement is based on very basic anatomy and physics. When I hit a bad shot, say a cut shot, I don’t go and try and flip the face or strengthen my grip on the next swing, that would be manic constantly chasing after one fix or another! No, I simply look at the basic movement that created that shot. For me, if I hit a cut shot, I know I pulled too much with the left shoulder coming down and I have several drills, all of which are on the website, to correct the faulty movement. Therefore, I drill the correct movement for the next shot and correct the problem, thus fixing the symptom of the bad ball flight.

It’s the only way that makes ANY sense to learn the golf swing whatsoever. If you’re tired of bouncing from golf tip to golf tip that are all symptom based, get with the program – the Rotary Swing Tour Program and start progressing like all those in these testimonials.
