  1. Very interesting topic. I've played this game for 30 years and never heard of this concept. Learn something new today!

  2. Twenty-five years I've been playing, and this is one of the most important, and more often practiced, facets of my golf swing. Getting better, thanks to great teachers like you. Excellent video. It

  3. Thanks Adam as always for the great video!!! I'm a little bit out of topic maybe, but i want to ask you since i heard in this video how at the start of the downswing you put pressure on the left leg. I feel instead at the transition/start of the downswing like i'm attached to the ground with both feet (meening i try to increase pressure with both feet), by consequence i drop the arms and then i feel like the hips open automatically. I don't know if i was able to explain my feeling, but you think is correct to feel pressure with both feet? Thanks as always!!

  4. I was going to ask you why do I shoot an 80 one day and a 92 the very next day. I am 64 yrs old, and I think I trend to get more "swingy" when I play golf two days in a row. I will try the advice in this video. Any tips on how to stay in the 80 zone and not the dead zone? It has to be something simple and I can't figure it out. Please help I am perplexed

  5. Hi Adam, as a novis, my first task was breaking 100, which i have been struggling with. But after watching your videos and putting them into action, I scored a 95 for the first time last week. Thanks so much

  6. Like my dad always says to me, the biggest mistake in golf is taking up the sport in the first place. Just think how much money and time you will have saved without playing this frustrating game. Great tips though, I started golf last year and it's already taken me into addiction.

  7. Really good video and instruction. Thank you for creating this video. The drills will certainly help me eliminate this nagging problem in my golf swing. ​

  8. I really like your easy way of teaching Adam, I'm a senior golfer here who started the game late, only 5 years ago. I tried many other teachers methods but yours are the best I seen. Hope all is well in Naples after the hurricane, I'm here in western NC. Take care

  9. I love getting on the course but just don't feel ready. I have played about 5 rounds and as u can imagine have lost plenty of balls. I play from ladies tees and haven't had a birdie. I guess u need to play for at least a year or 2 to make progress. I play on a championship course which doesn't help haha. but hitting a good shot to the centre of the green (which u do from time to time even as a beginner) on a long par 3 makes u want to keep playing. I play at benton hall golf club in Essex it's a gorgeous course with really reasonable green fees

  10. Adam, I really like your Youtube instructions — relatively short, to the point, consistent audio/video quality. Thank you! Now, here is my question: in this video: at your first address, your club's toe is pretty much aligned with the center of the ball. Is it because your actual swing moves outward to have the sweet spot meets the ball? If so, I have the same, or similar tendency. My questions are these: 1) do you address the ball as I observed?; 2) If so, is it okay to adjust the address position of the club head to compensate the tendency? Or, should we keep aiming at the center of the club head until I can hit good shots?

  11. Sir can you please make a video on how to rotate body on the left side in downswing sometimes I fall a little back in downswing and get the reverse "C" in downswing and it makes the contact become very inconsistent.It will be helpful if u make a video on how to open the shoulders in downswing and move towards left side.. Thank you

  12. Hi Adam, I have subscribed too your site as I find your instructions so too the point and so easy too understand, I was with a site in America, but they are all for younger golfers with full back swings! I do notice that you do not have a full back swing, so this suits me too a tee, which is around my kind of swing, I am 66 years of age, but still hit the ball well, as long as I hit through the ball towards my intended target I am fine, but the odd time/s I hit at the ball, resulting in me kicking myself for hitting such a bad shot! You are a fabulous coach and I will be looking at all the video's available on your site. Many thanks Adam!

  13. adam, i've plagued by this for years and until recently did not know what i was doing. tried this drill and used the idea at golf and it really help. what do you think is the root cause, the early extension seems to be the effect, is there something early in the swing that causes this. thnx steve

  14. I’ve recently developed this in the past month again.. this a great video on the awareness needed to prevent the early extension. I really appreciate it Adam. Cheers.

  15. I just reviewed some down the line video of my swing and sure enough, the early extension actually started on the backswing before increasing in the downswing. Another great video… thanks Adam.

  16. Hi , great video btw. Is there a tip on how to lower high hands at impact ,as I also have this issue and is related to early extension???

  17. Adam, very interesting video.  When you talk about focusing on both ends of the spine, it looks like your head is moving towards the ball.  Doesn't that also expose the club's hosel as well? I have struggled with early extension for a long time and know that if corrected, I could significantly improve my ball striking.  Many thanks.

  18. I want to say thanks for the video. I am working on this right now with my PGA instructor, and it is tough to teach your body this move. For me it is difficult to get the lateral move, rotational pivot while accomplishing the squeezing effect while trying to be fluid and maintain your club head speed…hope I can get it soon. Thank you.

  19. Great video! Think this can finally help me get rid of that early extension. Like you said, I only looked at the bum and not the head. Took a look at a video of myself right away, and sure enough my head is moving away from the ball in the downswing, probably causing my early extension. Will work on this next range session! 😀 Thanks!

  20. Great communication skills!
    The right hip on the backswing actually rotates toward the target, not just back to a wall, yes?
    Great video…and thanks…..new follower.

  21. Great tutorial. I've had problems posturing up during downswing to compensate – resulting in inconsistencies. Been searching a while for a detailed video – finally I've got something actionable to test out. Thanks

  22. Many thanks Adam for yet another well presented instruction. I'm currently working on this frustrating element of my swing and am looking forward to feeling like I'm getting the right power out of my shots – especially in my longer irons – and not tending to thin all the time due to early extension. Another very helpful video and thank you from Sydney, Aust – Dave

  23. Hi Adam, are there any great players who early extend (principally the trail leg rather than the spine angle)? Put another way, can you be a good ball striker yet also early extend?

  24. Great video. First one that I have seen that explains the balance properly especially the example with Tiger Woods. I practised your exercises in my kitchen but it didn't work with a swivel chair … it careered across the kitchen behind me. Oops.

  25. Bazelgette offers the best golf instructions on YouTube. His teaching is what I refer to as the miniskirt method; short enough to be interesting and long enough to cover the subject.

  26. Someday there will be an instructor that goes to the point before i space out in a sea of words and expressions that i forget what's the video about in the first place

  27. I am 76 now, but I have long lacked the ability to move from impact into a high finish while maintaining the angle of my spine (staying bent at the hips). What I think I am seeing here is that I should not worry too much about turning up into a high finish but should concentrate on keeping my upper body from raising up through impact. When I tried this in my front yard with plastic practice balls, my swing seemed to feel more upright. I have often felt like I had a tendency to raise up too quickly or to not bend over enough to begin with, and I have been told that my swing is pretty flat (even though I am about 6'2" tall). My feeling is that a more upright swing is likely to be more consistent in terms of direction, since the arc of the upright swing would move less from side to side than the arc of a flatter swing. For example, a ferris wheel has no side to side motion, whereas a merry go round has only side to side motion. I think I have often raised up too early (or never bent over enough to begin with). In spite of this I can usually make solid contact and don't have a lot of problems with fat or thin hits. What I do have a problem with is the direction of my shots, especially with my driver. I have a tendency to hit a lot of hooks or pull hooks. When I try to correct this by weakening my grip, I will often hit push fades or even slices. When I try to fine tune it , I can't be sure what the ball will do, which can result in the dreaded two way miss. When I hit the practice balls in my yard, I felt like I stayed bent over until after impact, at which point I could either raise up into a "high finish" or just let the swing come to a stop without ever raising up. I will definitely give this a try on the range and see how it works.

  28. 20 years of golfing. At best an 8 handicap. Played 4 times a week, so many drills. A man told me i had "butt in the water" said it was unfixable. No sense. I realized quickly, it requires a pelvic shift slightly towards the golf ball. This shift, this slight movement, allowed "the strike zone", iow, area the club has to strike the ball in the sweet spot.
    I don't know how else to say other than make love to your ball. Do not be affraid nor shy with your equipment at the Y. Distance and consistency will wildly improve. For a while i hated shifting my junk toward the ball. Very informative! Ty all

  29. It looks like from the video that your club face starting position is not directly behind the ball but slightly below it, so it looks like just the toe is behind the ball.

  30. Adam, I practiced these drills then played a round today. My contact was so much better! Shot about 5 strokes better than my recent rounds. Have to continue to do these drills to eliminate EE.

  31. I discovered I was 'heel striking' the ball after doing a driver fitting and then, at the range, with some spray talc confirmed that indeed that was too often the case. Your lessons are always so precise and sensible. I look forward to working on these drills and ultimately making better contact with my driver! Thanks, Adam!

  32. Hi, Is there anyway i can email you a video of my swing just for your opinion on similar issue but abit different?
    Thanks in advance

  33. Outstanding, IMHO the best online golf instructor of them all, clear instructions, explains the mechanics perfectly , provides great PGA golfer comparisons and last but not least excellent practice drills. I like the KISS method of Adam's delivery to help you become a more consistent player and enjoy the game of golf more….Thank you again so much
