    I have been leading with the right elbow in the downswing to create lag but unfortunately still flipping. I have strong forearms due to the work I do and when my timing is good I can smash it. However the consistency is not there and when the timing of the release is not there, anything can happen. I watched your video Russel and was interested in your view of the left forearm rotating in the last part of the downswing to square up the clubface. I always tried releasing my hands at point of impact to square up the clubface with some success if my timing wad good. I never really compressed the ball. Just muscled it. I just came back from the park with my 9 iron and a few balls after trying rotation of my left forearm to square up the club face and keep my wrists quieter at impact. BINGO. I just naturally stopped flipping, the ball flight was lower, more powerful and consistent. I finally felt what it was like to compress the ball with an iron. The club was doing all the work, I was just guiding it to the ball. Great sensation. Thanks for the tip and I can't wait to try this with my other clubs at the driving range.

    Wow this is exactly how I solved my flipping release problem! There’s absolutely NO way to flip once your right elbow gets in front of the right hip. On practice swings it is amazing, but with a ball in the way obviously it’s more difficult to execute since old habits tend to come back, but video still show a good improvement.

  3. Jonathan Balanetsky says

    Russell, any tips for the player that just cant "feel" the right elbow driving in front of the hip? I tend feel my entire right side engaging. Thanks

  4. Ernie Murdock says

    In order to get your right elbow in the position that he says is that you have to turn you hips back to the left. Your arms will
    fall into place where you right elbow will be against you right side. This same movement is in Ben Hogan's book where he
    demonstrates where the right arm is positioned. If anyone noticed he never hit a shot. He never showed how to setup
    to the ball and he never demonstrated the back swing or the down swing. If you ever take a lesson from a guy
    who talks all the way through a lesson give him your money and never take a lesson again. If you want to see your arms
    drop into position get a full length mirror and practice your back swing and start the down swing with the hips turning
    back to the left you will see your arm drop. It's a natural move. I wouldn't take a lesson from this guy. He has no clue what
    he's talking about.

    Does every teaching pro in the UK have a "you Tube" channel? Who's minding the store?

  6. thomas ross says

    let the right shoulder drop down,not out. pulling with left side. Forget about the right side.

  7. Gary Widdowson says

    Aids in wieght transfere too I hope instead of out to in – in to out and follow though thanks of to range again (sigh)

    Explained in details and made points. Helped me a lot and thank you!

  11. Ron finch says

    Love your instruction, but could this encourage a shankopotamus? Ron

  12. C N says

    Russell, looking at the end of the video at set up I noticed your stance is a bit open from the legs to your chest toward the target, I'm assuming this will be required to assist the elbow to be tuck under for the down swing? Thanks

  13. Robbie 837 says

    Great content Russ easy to understand hopefully not to hard to put into practice🤞

    Wow.. Oh my Buddha, I’ve been skipping stones with the driver. This is more of the same,, different feel, but I’ve been having that same feel for the last few days. I’ll continue to work on it. Thanks for sharing..⛳️

  17. Kwan Mok says

  18. Paul L says

    great advice

  19. chris mostert says

    Great instruction Russell. Amazing for me is how much straighter my shots are since practicing this right elbow move through previous videos of yours.

  20. staticstephen says

    Sweet bud 👍👍

  21. richard johnson says

    Could you also view the release as a right arm punch, where the extension of the right arm closes the club face as the arm extends from the body?

  22. don monfort says


  23. Jim Samaras says

    Is there a tip or video on driving the right elbow for a two plane swing vs a one plane? Two plane swings require more exact timing I believe. I was taught to "ring the bell" at the top of the backswing to initiate the downswing. Would I do that before the weight shift Russell?

  24. James Adcock says

    I've got so many things I wanna try from watching lessons drive my self mad. I think u need strong legs to be good at golf not sure I have that left it too late I'm not old but I'm not young either haha

  25. Kenny C says

    Been working on this for the last 7 or 8 weeks after watching your videos on the right elbow and the left wrist at impact. now hitting my irons about 20 yards further and swinging more freely. driver is around 40 yards better.Thank you for all your vids.

  26. Mike Beck says

    Russell, wonderful explanation of the right elbow. I have been working on this aspect of the downswing and was unsure if what I was doing was correct. Many thanks for sorting this out for me.

  27. Ian Pentz says

    Starting to make a lot of sense Russ, great tutorial. Quick question with the rotation on back swing of the hip turning back (my pro encouraged it due to excess lateral movement) I feel I get stuck on the inside on the downswing due to taking club inside which you referred in previous tut.

    Turning the hip back will naturally want to bring the club head on the inside hence reason for getting stuck.

    I’m going to try the right elbow chicken wing to avoid club coming to much on the inside, on downswing (I either block or hook due path) I’ve tried to turn right hip in and take the club outside the line on way back, but feel I get arms and body separated. Can you give me a previous link to the take away direction and the tactile feedback between arms and body? Thanks I’m hooked!

    Happy new year mate!

  29. Dave Gambrill 449 says

    Off to the range 2moro, I’ll be trying to drill this into my swing to make it feel and become natural, eventually 🤞🏻

    Perfect timing just before the first range session of 2019 🙂
