This video is about How to stop swaying in the golf swing. Many golfers can’t stop swaying and sliding in their golf swings particular on their backswing causing a substantial drop in power and accuracy.

In this golf lesson Danny Maude reveals why despite many golf lessons golfers struggle to stop the sway and what they can go and practice today to remove it for good.

3 Key Points

1. The shape of the backswing is a spiral upwards not simply around or a transference of your weight the right and then to the left
2. Make practice deliberate on the range. Don’t be in a rush to hit balls. Focus on the change you are trying to make in the swing and forget about the result of the shot in the short term.
3. Practice using mirrors at home so you can get used to the changes


Thanks for stopping by. I created this website as a resource just for you to support you on your golfing journey as I know how tricky learning this game can be…to say the least!

I personally found learning the game too long and difficult in the early days. I read all the books, watched all the videos but my game was not improving. Then after studying various forms of neuro science, motor learning, psychology and personal development in less than two years I went from struggling golfer to the final stage of the Open Championship.

On YouTube and my personal website ( I will bring you the most up to date training, training that is getting tangible results for my clients right now. I don’t know where you are in your golfing journey, you could be just starting out or maybe your body isn’t as flexible as it once was or you’ve got ambitions to slash your handicap. Wherever you are I’ve created a place here you can learn, share your ideas, ask questions and get all the support you need to enjoy this great game.

Be prepared though. If its a quick fix you are after Im not your man. Here I will give you step-by-step advice that you can take straight to the practice ground and apply to the course but it will require you to get stuck in, screw up…a lot, practice some more and then watch those scores tumble

I’ve had the pleasure of coaching thousands of students all around the world and if you are up for the challenge and are ready to get in the game…LETS GO TO WORK!

  1. Really good drills, my only concern would be the danger of not completing weight transfer and starting a bit of a reverse pivot, whichis where my swaying came from.

  2. Should the backswing spiral start with the feet / ankles and wind up or does the act of swinging the club up and back create the spiral or does it matter?

  3. love the spiral staircase visual. Put it into practice the other day and shot 73 off a 7 handicap. I wish I had seen this at the start of the season.

  4. I understand the absolute importance of no sway on the backswing…however all great players fire their hips towards the target on the downswing. Is this not a sway/slide? Or would you advise more of a circular pivot of the hips? btw ..excellent videos.

  5. Hi Danny , we can’t see where your ball goes after you hit it, please let us know where your shot goes !!! Thank you !!

  6. Danny, after watching this video, the mental image of the spiral was a good swing thought but maintaining the right leg position i.e. not allowing the right knee to move nearer or over the right foot – made a massive difference to my drives today. Long, straight and powerful, I just felt in complete control….excellent instruction ! (can you do a video on shanks with wedges? – when coming from the inside)

  7. Excellent video. I’ve watched a lot of these videos and I must say you are very clear and explain what you mean very well. Subscribed!
