Increase Your Golf Swing Speed w/ the Sledgehammer Drill

I had a “blast” making this video. You’ve gotta watch it!

I knock the heck out of some concrete blocks with a sledgehammer and teach you an important lesson while doing so:

Aggressively rotating your entire body through impact may feel powerful, but swinging your club like a sledgehammer is costing you a ton of distance.

Body rotation is not enough!

In this “Right Shoulder Golf Swing Drill” video, I’ll show you, in a pretty explosive demonstration, how to create the proper leverage in your swing for a ton of club head speed.

You’ll learn a series of drills that will teach you:

*How your right shoulder helps leverage your swing for more lag, and

*How to release your built-up lag for explosive distance!

BONUS! These drills may fix your slice by eliminating all of your over-the-top swing tendencies.

Watch this video now to stop your sledgehammer swing and start outdriving your buddies with an effortless, properly leveraged swing!

I look forward to working with you on your swing in the future!!

  1. I'm not sure but ,if anyone else needs to find out about improve your golf swing try Barkola Amazing Golf Blueprint (do a google search ) ? Ive heard some awesome things about it and my mate got great success with it. 

  2. This is somewhat of a confusing concept, and you started hitting on the important parts at the end.  This isn't all that complicated so im not going to use fancy words like our friend chris tyler here.  The TLDR version is this: Look at the left shoulder of every good golfer through impact.  It is maintaining the speed that peaked just after the club gets vertical on the downswing (which pulls arms and hands into the release position).  At release, the relationship between the right shoulder and the left shoulder changes to accommodate the extension of the right arm, but this does not mean that the upper body doesn't have a feeling moving fast through impact or that the right shoulder is slowing down.  The right shoulder is just reacting to the release towards the ball powered by the right side and extension of the right arm and rolling of the right wrist.  Theres a reason the examples shown in the video use the FO view instead of the DTL view.  That doesn't mean that people should be consciously thinking of rotating their right shoulder through impact, as doing so may give you problems releasing in a powerful manner with accuracy, but it also doesn't mean they should be thinking about consciously slowing down their shoulder as that could also lead to a loss of power, poor hand position through impact, and a number of other bad things.

    Believe it or not everything is connected in the downswing.  Almost everything is a result of two important things, the first of which is the sequence of lower body accelerating pulling the torso into motion, torso the accelerating pulling the shoulders, the shoulders accelerating pulling the arms, and the arms pulling the club.  Second important thing is your arm positions, left arm needing to stay straight and the right arm needing to stay connected and tucked until the last moment possible.  

    Left side of your lower body starts getting separation, which initiates the right side of the lower body, which initiates the left side of the torso which initiates the the right side of the torso which initiates the left shoulder, which initiates the right shoulder, which initiates the left arm, which pulls the left hand which pulls the club head.  The right arm gets pulled by the club as it should be almost entirely passive until the absolute last possible moment.  The right arm and right shoulder shouldn't even enter into the equation at all up until the release point.

    When you get to release point is when everything happens with right side of the upper body. Your right side needs to kick into action to rotate the club 90 degrees to make contact with the ball.  Its not really responsible for all 90 degrees, and it doesn't even get to 90 degrees till well after impact, but from the release point thats basically how far it needs to go.  Your arms are connected to your shoulder, so what you do with one is going to effect the other.  If you are starting from a good hand position on release, the right elbow needs to go from completely tucked in and connected to the torso (forming an extremely strong V between your upper arm and forearm), to fully extended very shortly after impact.  And this is the key. That motion during that extremely small window of time does require a change of rotation in your shoulder in order for your right arm to extend while keeping your hands moving forward as they release on a good plane.  From the start of the backswing to the release it feels like it is rotating with the left shoulder around the plane towards the target.  At the moment of release the right shoulder is actually straying off that plane slightly moving more towards the ball rather than down the target line while the left shoulder is continuing on the rotational plane away from the ball.  Instead of moving along the target line, for the approximately 1/3 of a second, possibly less for the best in the world, the right shoulder from a front on view can appear to be slowing down significantly when really it is just changing its movement ever so slightly for an extremely brief amount of time.  Well guess what… when you look at the down the line view the shoulder still appears to be moving quite fast.

    But what hes trying to say in the video is mostly accurate.  If you consciously think about rotating your shoulders, you will rotate them too much along the shoulder plane towards the target and not enough to the ball assisting with the release of the club.

    The shoulder movement should not be conscious unless its something that isn't happening naturally.  But the slowing of the shoulder should also not be conscious for reasons you stated.  To think about slowing the shoulder at release is a near impossible task, as you need to time it at the exact right moment.  if you time it too early, you will lose power from an early release.  If you time it late, the clubhead will never close in time and you will have some sort of push / fade / slice.  Theres probably a billion other things that can go wrong when you start consciously thinking about your shoulders at release point instead of how you are releasing with your right arm and right hand to create a good path to the ball and square club face.  Thinking about shoulder rotation needs to before the release point, after the hips, and after the torso.

  3. Just tried to watch the rest for FREE, and you get NOTHING, NO free 25 video's, can't even see the end of this one, WHAT A LOAD OF BOLLOCKS

  4. the concept makes sense, but I think there must be a better way to approach this concept than saying slow your right shoulder down? By slowing your right shoulder you slow down the full shoulder turn ? Is this where the force of the club head takes over the swing and pulls  your body though to the finish?

  5. If you want people to subscribe you really shouldn't string them along and then slam a door in their faces.

  6. Hands and shoulder slowing down should not be a conscious thought , but instead is a result of proper kinematic sequence. One should NEVER think of slowing down . Always think smooth acceleration , then let physics transfer momentum and determine what slows down and what speeds up.

  7. I know you have a business to run but there are 100 other videos on this topic for free… so giving half the link just makes people click to right on a related video.

  8. The majority of golfers surfing golf tips / advice on " You-Tube " I would say have high handicaps.
    Most of your video clips are way over the top when it comes to being complicated and I would suggest far and beyond most amateur golfers. 
    With the driver for example we are dealing with a motion from address to follow through that takes approximately five seconds.
    Not a chance the average golfer could apply most of your advice ( unpaid ) in a process that takes five seconds.

  9. Power is speed. No speed – no power output. I think you mean force when you say power.

    "You get what u pay for" ;-)

  10. I agree with the negative comments below. There is better information on YouTube and it is free. Yes, you get what you pay for and this is not worth paying for!

  11. I'm SURE someone has mentioned this before BUT I'm going to remind everyone that Bubba Watson is a LEFTY.

  12. This guy is right in what he saying the objective is to get your hands back where they started with maintaining the spine angle. In order to do that u have to keep the lag then release it!

  13. Not one frigging word or demo about anything to do with a sludge hammer. Just nothing but deception all the time.

  14. You don't need any further links if you can in fact train properly get to the top and then transition into impact properly, as momentum carries you to the finish if your weight is moving correctly. If you are in an athletic stance and weight conscious at address and you get to the top correctly, this force built up will pull you to the finish with a full and explosive extension (release). If you just learn to get into position at the top, it is then a dropping forward and downward out front of the ball's position, like throwing rock to skip it on the lake. You don't throw like a ball, you skip a rock like you fling the wrist to do. The only way that happens is to relax the hands, the wrist, and the forearms,and let the momentum move your wrist as they will. No manipulation. No push, no pull, just a whip of the body and thus the arms at a certain angle.Try to skip the club hard out front of the ball. This teaches the player to hold the release until your hands move in front of your trailing hip in order to get the arm clear access to the ball. That throw forward makes that trailing shoulder slow in comparison to what you feel because the rest of your core is unwinding still… the big muscles are at work. It is the full straight extension that is the "tip of the whip" going super-sonic if you will. That is how this creates speed. It is physics really… the rule of a three lever system. The club head goes from 180* from the target line to about 35* from the target line as the levers fling the head around three active fulcrum points. It is actually physics at play. The rule of a lever is the tip must always catch up when rotated upon its fulcrum point. The two being released add the kinetic energy levels cumulatively.That release of both these angles happening in front of that right hip (also known as holding the "L's") is done through being relaxed and the club head weight being whipped by the body from the ground up. A double lever is powerful because the angles can be extreme and still the head must catch up. That double whip, if you will, can create a great amount of club head speed with a minimal amount of physical exertion. We all hear of the swing being a whip… but the two L's, the wrist and the elbow, mean it is a whip that is joined together at the tip of another whip. It is two whips, one is transferring its energy to the other. The right elbow if the first of these two levers, and the wrist is the secondary lever,'s fulcrum point. With the club head itself being the tip of the whole shebang. So the arm begins to straighten, which drops the wrist in front of the trailing hip, where the angular momentum begins the unwinding of the wrist around it's fulcrum point, and the two now rush to a straight line because of the rule of the lever. When you shift your weight to post on your left side, that is setting a fulcrum point as well. So now we have a three lever system. The body is now the main sources of power and that is why it is critical to start the downswing from the ground up. When you crack a whip (think towel) the force you initiate during the beginning of the move sets the level of force through the forward extension, that energy ripples down the towel, moving the energy into a smaller and smaller area (the tip). The same thing happens with a golf swing. If you don't start that swing from the ground up, you lose one of your three levers, and now limit what speed you can generate in total. That weight shift drives the other two, but only if it initiates the power structure correctly at the very beginning. That is why you do not use a shoulder turn alone to generate speed… it starts with the lower body, then the shoulders unwind bringing the loaded arms with the loaded wrist. Without the lower body you limit your full playing potential. You lose speed needlessly. That is why you do not rush downward too… the three levers must be activated properly. If you rush, it can't.
