  1. Hi Danny, tried your turning method for Seniors today and saw a vast difference in distance and accuracy. You’ve made a 76 year old very happy, thanks.

  2. Nice information – An observation – you use terms "release and firing" that is a difficult concept that I believe needs more explanation.
    Good video thank you.

  3. Excellent, 74 and lefthanded ,please just refer to lead and trail forget right and left.. apologies to righthanders

  4. You are so right about the head rotation or lack thereof. Started working on head, neck, shoulder movement and I can feel the work I need to do. Thanks for the tips Danny.

  5. This swing approach would be good for 95% of all average golfers anyone in double digit handicap. Consider renaming it as such.

  6. Thanks Danny! I'm 79,I tried to draw the ball. Had some success the other day. I tried it few days ago. Couldn't do it. I watch your instruction again. I think. I got it now.

  7. Excellent tips mate, just been out the back yard trying the swing with the right foot back etc, can't wait for tomorrow's game. ( 68 years old and i'll never give up ). Cheers Jerry.

  8. Very good video. So many of them are terrible like the "Scratch Golf Academy" guy who is mostly a disgrace to teaching. I know quite a bit about the golf swing myself. And your part about taking it back connected with your body is ultra-important. Most people don't do that and just introduce a timing dependent mess into their swing. And they wonder why they can't take their range game to the first tee. As for me, I use the big trunk muscles located just about my belt line to initiate the take-away. I let them "carry" the arms and shoulders back with the hands remaining centered to my chest. I also remain very level and swing around my spine only, not up and down as it appears on TV. My swing fell totally apart around age 53. I was about to quit golf Then I finally got all "connected" up again by doing EXACTLY what you say early in your video, I had some tour level player help with that. I went on for 20 more years playing very low handicap golf. Even occasionally broke par. Most people simply do not realize the importance of the arms/hands, shoulders, rotator cuffs, and body trunk muscles remaining CONNECTED together. This is what removes the need for much timing and takes one to the golf course with their range game. BTW – learning to putt like all the touring pros do today is a real challenge. It's not what you think. Took me about at least 200 hours under a seven foot string to finally figure that one out. But it all starts by figuring out what a putting stroke really is. And the fact that by the rules of golf, the shaft must come up at an angle to the blade (aka – tilted) introduces so much confusion, that few people ever come to really understand it all. That's why they are touring pros and everyone else is at best local champions. And for God's sake, nobody but nobody uses what Dave Peltz advocated for decades. Listen to Utley, Crenshaw, Tiger, and Stockton if you want to learn how to putt. Tip. The distance of the blade off the ground is a critical factor in blade alignment when a proper stroke is used. This is why many of the young guns today "lift" at impact. Doubles their margin for error or as Stan Utley has said, "I have no problem with a guy who hooks every putt into the hole". Just aim a little right and lift at impact (which closes the blade). Michael Breed advocates this too. It works and roughly doubles your margin of error because you never miss to the right. In a released touring pro stroke of today, almost none of the important things of the past are important any more. That is why Crenshaw was such a great putter, and yet had a horrible stroke. He was the posted child of a light touch released stroke where the putter's own momentum was basically everything. Now they all do that (but with a single tilted plane stroke path that they truly understand). All of this was at one time clearly explained on the website of the people who sell "The Putting Arc". And they sell a clip-on device to help you with that once you understand it. You will never be a great putter until you truly understand what a putting stroke on a single tilted plane actually is and what the stroke should look like to your eyes. It is almost an optical illusion. And understanding that is very difficult to do. It also solves the straight back- straight through vs. arc argument forever. A totally unmanipulated and unrotated blade riding on a single tilted plane appears to your eyes to both open and close relative to the target and ARC. That's what you finally come to understand. And one of the best ways to learn to do all that is Tiger's ALWAYS USED TO THIS DAY right hand on the putter only drill. This is why he uses it constantly for about 50 percent of all of his short practice putts at all times. It teaches one to stay very consistent, unrotated, and/or unmanipulated on a single tilted plane. And it promotes a total release of the putter while you do that. The big flat top grips aid in the feel for that too. Damn, I've written a book.

  9. Danny, I am new to your site and love it. If you covered my question before i apologize. But, I'm not sure what you mean by "the face of the club starting to point down to the ground" and "face the floor". Can you explain that in more detail. Thank you. These senior lessons are the best I have seen. Thank you very much for providing this.

  10. It actually works for us senior golfers.
    I can't get the draw yet but it is much easier on my back and I hit it straighter.
    I now finish my round with less pain.
    Keep up these excellent tips for us seniors, Danny.

  11. club head speed – is it the same for back swing and down swing ? I tend to move back slowly and then rush my down swing

  12. Danny, Tried this adjustment today with my driver, and all three drives were in the fairway, pretty straight, avg. 230 yrds. With my 5 fairway and irons, I pulled shots left. Do you have advice? Teag

  13. This video looks to be what I need as I'm now 78 and I'd like to consistently hit a draw with driver and irons. I'd like to know how to combine this video with another video you've done which appears to also be very useful. The other video is the one where you use an alignment stick gripped along the shaft such that the end of the alignment stick is in contact with one's left side at address and for the first part of the backswing and then the stick points to near the ball halfway back. The final part is where the stick must not contact the body during the whole downswing and follow through. I'd love to see these 2 practice exercises combined for old seniors. Great tips,

  14. Awesome im 56 just back playing after being injured in Afghan broken back and neck took me 10 years to get back to where I can playing
