How did Savannah choose to hit left handed? Did she try right handed first then switch?

Sumit Aggarwal

So much more powerful after doing this drill with my dominant trail hand. I was making the same mistake of not loading my trail arm. So I was only .using my weaker lead arm to play!


Shawn, I have an issue that is not directly related to this video but permeates my swing across the board. I tend to twist my lead foot as I transfer my weight. I twist so that my foot faces the target. I’m sure this is a power leak. I tried closing my stance with the lead foot, but still getting remnants of the twist. Is there a drill that can rectify this?

Sumit Aggarwal

Great video Shawn!! Just to clarify, as you know, I play right handed and my right hand is dominant. I think we had worked on this last year. Probably time to revisit?


Shawn I have made great strides with the strong grip, in fact I’m hitting some of the best irons in some time.

However I struggle with my driver, I use a strong grip as well but still hitting a fade or down right slice……..any suggestions would be appreciated.

FYI was a 10 before your lessons Now a 4!! Thank you

I’m confused. Are you saying we should now focus on our dominant side? I am right handed and thought the left side was the side to focus on which is why you had us slashing through a melon with a sword. I recall you made a video years ago and found you were more accurate on your non-dominant side.


Fantastic! What I love – other than the running commentary from Sav and Mu – is the simplicity of your tuition! We can see it, hear it and just squeeze it – boom!
Yes I am biased but why not be when you are hitting balls on the range and the guy that used to coach you(years ago) stops and asks who is your new coach! So much fun telling him – “Still Shawn” !!!

Another gem Shawn. I was always trying to control the dominant right arm. The right side always wanted to get into the action and over the top pull or slice. Now the football drill is purposeful through this video. The turbocharged right trail hand release also helps with my tempo, chipping, driver….thanks.




I think you’re a genius. My ball striking is starting to come around.

One issue I have is that I seem to pull the ball a little when trying to hit fades and I seem to push the ball a little when hitting draws.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

what causes the trail hand to release down at the ball even if you think that you are swinging to target.


Great video Shawn. First off. I’m a new suscriber, I’ve been devouring your Premium videos over the past 2 months, but have deeply syudied your videos in the past half year. It’s made such difference (I have gone from shooting 90+ to 80s). Thank you so much and keep doing what you’re doing.

Back to the video. I’ve tried both lead hand and trail hand release. I have a very dominant trail hand (right) and have decided to go with this. What seems to work well is the pull through to release. I got it from your Push or Pull in the golf swing YouTube video. Contact is great. Just have difficulty controlling the direction a bit even if I do my best to swing to target. Do you have anything on pulling the club through on the Premium channel or do you plan to? It was night and day for me and the missing piece. Any help would be great. All the best, Richard from Budapest.


Hi Shawn, great video! I noticed in this drill that it is very important for me to concentrate on my weight shifting to my back heel, and then transferring weight to the front with trail leg shifting from inside so that I can get the feel of trail elbow coming from the inside going out. I have a tendency to transfer wight when I shift to the front back foot instead of from the inside back heel – which causes me to get stuck and pull ball and lose power. Hope that makes sense. And this drill helps that were the lead arm release doesn’t focus on that.


Hey Shawn, I have been giving the one arm swings a try. Around 8.30 you mention keeping your elbow tucked at address, when you backswing the elbow stays tucked right? Cheers


I will give it a look now, thanks 😉


8:20 to 8:30 is golden and is one of my faults. I find that trail elbow gets lazy and ends up to the side of my trail hip . I hit my best shots when I drive it and get it in front. This premium channel rocks.
Thank yinz
