You are currently watching a video about the basics of the hip rotation in slow motion through the golf swing.

If your intersted 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.

Its still free to send in your swings to the channel for some advice on what part of your swing you should work on

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.

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.

  1. Do you prefer the rear leg retain some bend in it at the top or can one also straighten the rear leg to the top, which increases right hip range of motion? In other words, can the rear hip turn too much and cause downswing problems?

  2. Very helpful as always Russ! It seems as though there is an ever so slight lateral movement towards the target on the initial weight shift then a turn back of the left hip. Is this correct?

  3. Thanks sir for your slow motion swing video. I asked for this in one of the comments. Thanks it's very helpful

  4. You answered my prior question perfectly. For a beginner and senior citizen- which technique would you recommend-slight shift to load or no shift? This has been extremely helpful as there is all sorts of contradictory teaching on Youtube.

  5. I love your right wrist hinge with no twist in it that supports the left arm balance of the elbows for the biggest radius to rotate under your center.

  6. I had these hip tips in mind at the range today and delighted to report that I hit the ball better than I ever have…I even managed to draw the golf ball which is has been pretty much impossible until now. Thanks for this series it's been a real eye opener for me.👏👏👍🏻

  7. Superb again Russell as usual make everything so clear I'm Scott from Glasgow and a high handicaper but watching you i feel I could go out tomorrow and tear it up I know it's not that simple but mentally I'm so more positive cheers 👍🏻👍🏻

  8. Russell Amazing! 2 weeks ago, you promised a video that would end early extension in the backswing. This is it I finally have solved a once permanent problem. My legit P.B. of +15 is going down in 2019 thank you

  9. Great to see the slo-mo Russell, would love to see a top tracer of your actual shots!! Top instruction, my strike had improved so much since following you, keep it coming geeza!!👍👍👍

  10. I have working on this very thing, so watching your video was helpful in showing me more about the proper hip turn. My question is how to control the degree of hip turn. Taking it back until I feel fully turned at the hip is fine, but that varies with your individual flexibility. Is there an actual degree of turn goal? Basic instruction usually calls for a rule of thumb of approximately 45 degrees and 90 degrees for the shoulders. Any thoughts are just go with what I feel to be fully coiled?

  11. Hi great vid again I turn fine but when I turn the hip on down swing I seem to take club on out side and pull the ball or knowing where I am try to square the face resulting in a slice help me feel like giving up !!!
    play of 9 hcp so as you can imagine scramble well but would rather hit the right shot thank Russell

  12. Hey Russell I love how you break everything down. It works and is easy to understand. Can you touch on touch on your thoughts on the golf swing when you don’t have a lot of mobility? I still have a 104 mph golf swing but I lack mobility and I can’t get to all the positions. Thank you

  13. One thing that’s very clear in this video is the way your arms work as a unit with no interference from your upper body, because it’s moved out of the way. A lot of us keep too much pressure
