they’re so good had to get a second one today we’re talking about golf swing
rotation how do we get the rotation we need to produce the results we want
let’s do it right now oh if you haven’t yet subscribed to the channel hit the
subscribe button and the building notification so you don’t miss anything
also if you like any of the products I’m using like the motivo golf mats I’m
hitting off of there are links in the description below click those tection my
Amazon page you’re all set up there hope it helps you now we’re gonna get to how
to get more rotation my man Joe from sharper golf I’ll leave a link to his
channel as well set me his swing I’m gonna break it down for you show you
what we’re trying to get him to do which is rotate and the best drill to get more
rotation in your swing okay sounds good let’s rock okay so Joe’s a really good
player and has a very very solid swing there’s just a few things we need to
work on to really get him where he can even be more consistent more power more
control and we’re gonna start off with his backswing okay if you just look at
his backswing he does the classic kind of rotate everything move which you know
kind of makes sense but it gets you in a little bit of trouble notice he’s he’s
here and he’s bringing that Club way inside that’s a combination of trying to
keep it low and rotate that face open at the same time and when you do that
that’s what it looks like right here and then he’s very what we call laid off
at this position and we need to fix that a little bit okay just a little tweak is
gonna make a huge difference right here then if we look at his face on view okay
this is a critical and compared him to let’s say the Tiger Woods obviously the
greatest player Ivor right so we can learn a lot and a couple things you’re
gonna learn is this one Joe he likes to transfer his weight to his back foot
when you do that you slide off the ball too much so he’s sliding off the ball
and he’s transferring that weight over here and then he stays back on his
downswing thus his hands are way behind the ball we always talk about forward
shaft lean here’s the thing is you’re not really trying to get your hands
forward all you really want to do is look at Tiger okay
he doesn’t shift to his right side he rotates and creates a little bit of
space in between where his hips started and where they are at the top of his
backswing and then he moves his lower body as it’s rotating it’s moving
forward into that front where the front hip was and now he’s like half his body
is ahead of where it started out that’s why his hands are so far forward at
impact because his body has his lower body has rotated and moved forward
therefore his hands are connected to that point he’s not trying to get
forward shaft lean it happens because he’s rotating through the shot and
transferring that weight around his body to that forward foot Joe he hold he
stays back thus his hands are back she can get a very high weak iron shot with
not much nobody called compression you’re not compressing that ball because
your hands are behind the ball and impact so we’re gonna change that
through a drill we’re gonna work on it’s gonna fix everything at the same time
you’re gonna love it here we go get your alignment stick okay that’s all
you really need and I’ll show you how this is gonna help you on your backswing
from this view and then our face on view at the same time so you’re just gonna
hold your alignment stick down shaft right here what we’re trying to do
is take that back watch okay so I got one shaft down on
the ground one shaft right here up against my left side and I’m gonna take
that back and as I’m taking it back I’m not gonna rotate my hands open I’m gonna
keep that shaft kind of against my body the whole time and work it up and have a
shut face it’s gonna feel shut it’s not really that’s where where you want it to
be okay so instead of this that shaft would come this stick would come off my
body I wanted to stay on my body right to this point right in here and then
we’re gonna work up here and then I want that shaft to go this way and flatten
out here that’s going to be the move okay we’re going to practice this over
and over and over up here up here there you go we’re just doing like 3/4
power less than 3/4 power coming up here just attached to my body to my hands get
about 3 o’clock and then up and you have to rotate or the stick whacks you in the
side and you have a mark right here it’s not gonna be pretty
okay so if you flip I’m hitting my ribcage but if you rotate you get your
body out of the way and you’re not hitting yourself so we want to go half
power maybe less than half power and just get that move going get the move just keep working that now the other
piece of it you can do at the same time I’ll show you that from over here okay
the next thing is as you’re doing this stick drill you’re rotating right here
you want to keep an eye right here okay you don’t want this to ever go out here
you don’t want that to happen you want this to go around like this okay that’s
your back swing right in here and then as you come forward you’re rotating
through so this let’s say it’s right there where you started right right on
your hip you rotate and then when you come forward you want it to be about in
the middle of your body and thus your hands would be forward of where you
started but the club head has to be back because that’s where the ball is so your
hands will automatically be ahead of the ball because your weight is rotated and
moving this direction that’s how you get that forward shaft lean it’s through
rotation though cuz you gotta you can’t just slide your body forward and no
rotation that’d be bad you’ve got to rotate and the body’s
moving forward so now your hips are here now you’re here when
you make impact so just make a conscious effort like I’m not going here I’m just
doing this right in here while using this so that’s the drill like for guys
like Joe and if it’s like you you’re gonna need the exact same drill to get
the rotation you need to get those hips turning otherwise you’re gonna hit your
side all the time and if you’re looking for more forward shaft lean it’s the
same exact drill because that’s getting your hands ahead of the ball that’s why
your weight has to come forward on your downswing but it can’t go back you’re
not you’re losing power as your hips shift to the right so don’t do that let
you do it a lot okay warm up like that that’s your drill you constantly go back
to this you can never do enough of these alright this drill has been around a
long time and it’s tried-and-true it’s going to get you the pieces that you
need to make better ball contact and get better rotation more power through that
ball so after about a ten thousand times then you should be good okay for a long
time and hopefully you saw it and it’ll start making a different sound
and that’s called compression ball contact crisp ball first divot later
it’s gonna be good so there that’s the simple drill for more rotation Joe I
hope it helps you out alright and that you really start making better ball
contact those hands will start going forward and you’ll stop losing distance
and hitting these weak iron shots I’ll leave a link for Joe’s channel sharper
golf check them out good luck to you man hope you’re getting better and doing
some more cool golf content thanks for watching the video hope this helps hope
this helps everybody you know just improve our games grow get better learn
more shots more techniques more drills it’s constantly trying to improve

  1. Lol the neighbors!! And good stuff pa!l keep it coming.I'm learning a lot! I just got chipping down a lot better and that's all because of rotation. This should help a ton of people.

  2. Great drill! I try to do the same by feeling my elbows are more connected in the backswing. The acrobats in the background are just surreal. Strangely consistent somehow…

  3. Do you have any tips to get lag out of your golf swing? My launch angle has been 7 degrees and lower, and is killing my distance and speed in every club. Great videos BTW!

  4. MrShortGame, I Like your channel a lot and enjoy the content , however I must "disagree" with you on trying to shallowing out the shaft on the down swing. The change of direction is what shallows out the shaft and putting it on a shallower plane coming down. I am sure you would agree that a golfer with a correct back swing "on plane" will fire the lower first allowing the shaft to shallow, thus comes the release. Consider Hogan's book ,5 lessons pages 88 & 89! Wedge is the Key that unlocks the score!!

  5. I watched this and then hit the range. It seems to be a big part of my problem. I just imagined I had the rod but didn't put it on my club. It worked well, I even tried it with my chipping and sand trap shots. It helped me a lot in the sand, not sure if it is supposed to. I also kept my hands forward in my putting and that helped too. Thank.

  6. Thanks Matt, I'm going to start doing this drill every day. Thanks again for all of the other drills that you sent me. Your instruction is top notch!

  7. Mr Short Game, love the videos! You've helped make me a much better golfer. Have you ever heard of or tried The Hanger?
    Great tool to generate rotating.

  8. I have been a subscriber for a few months now and continue to come back because of your humor. But I have to say this alignment stick drill has worked wonders with my swing. I am 8 handicap and am self taught. Never having a lesson, I always questioned if my approach to my own swing was the most efficient. My takeaway has always been my bugaboo so I would experiment throughout the season to get better. Well after watching this lesson and using the stick drill throughout my bag, minus the putter, I have to say my confidence is through the roof. Thank you and continue the great work!

  9. Great video. I'm going to have major back surgery on Feb-13th. So after healing up, I'm going to start this drill. I have great irons and woods, but my back issues​ have slowed my golf game. I'm 54, and really want to get back in shape and play as often as can. Golf is a beautiful game and I want to practice many of your techniques. Thank you very much …

  10. I hate that you keep putting your face so close to the camera. I'm switching to Eric Cogorno Golf because he doesn't have the goofy music and mugging.

  11. We have the beautiful Robert Trent Jones golf trail here in Alabama that I'm a member of. It would be an awesome place to film . Maybe we can see what it would cost to get you here.

  12. Very good video and instruction … lots of description, plenty of repetitions, and slo-mos to help make sense of everything. The side x side comparo with Tiger was very helpful, too. Nice video.

  13. For me after watching his HHWRR and WRAPS videos, the improvement has been massive. One thing to add that worked for me magically is that you should be conscious about BOTH of your shoulder positions on down and upswings. Lt shoulder under your chin, not on your Lt cheek on top of back swing and Rt shoulder under your chin, not on your Rt ear on release. And Rt shoulder behind your Rt ear, not below on top of backswing and Lt shoulder behind your Lt ear, not below on release.

  14. Great vid! Well explained. Wish l knew this a decade ago then l would kick my buddies and opponents' butts today. Thanks.

  15. Just learning to play the game at 30… These videos are perfect. Thank you for the free game literally. Would love to have a swing analysis done.. let me know how much!!

  16. Thank you ; amazing drill and i am on it straight away and will post feed back. one day may hit 7 iron 170 yds, currently 150 yds.

  17. Great drill ! I'd love for you to take a look at my swing , not sure how to get you a vid. though , I do have a few short up loaded video's on my channel if you go there look at the one titled 7 iron , thanks that might work .

  18. Amazing I lost my swing….Idid not rotate all the way – THANK YOU you are a genius the rotation drill fixed
    my swing in 10 minutes, I am 76 y
    and can get 165y out of my 7iron
    again. BRAVO!!

  19. So here's a question. At the top of the backswing you and many pro teachers say "flatten out" … the hands let the shaft fall back…..why not eliminate that flatten out by getting into that position in the backswing to begin with???

  20. you should show him a (impact bag) best way to get hips to rotation, if you pull the ball this will stop.

  21. Hi Mark I thought I had my swing fixed in 10 min 2 months ago,it didn’t last what really helped in the end was the stick drill,you said do it 10000 times, it started working for me after about 1200 times…it is all about how you turn the top half of the body on the downswing – thank you again!!!

  22. I am Joe! Well, maybe with the exception of the sway, but all else looks exactly like my swing and probably a million others 😉
    Great explanation and very relatable drill!

  23. Thank You, I tried it some months ago worked for me in 10 min, then I lost it….found it again I didn’t rotate all the may into the finish…I hope it will stay with me now!! Watched the video about 25 times!! Thanks so much.

  24. i've been watching you since you started the Mr Short Game videos (and your previous ones too) and that was about the time I started playing golf. you have been a lifesaver with your videos. I truly appreciate your advice. I have taken what you taught and taken it to the course.

  25. Man, this is my big issue, 150 ft high 80 yards long with a five iron. Your tip on not coming down on the ball improved it greatly, just need the distance. Thanks. All my faith in you.

  26. Okay, great drill, BUT…what's going on with the neighbors in the background? Do you live next to the Flying Graysons??
