Alastairs first lesson with our A perfect Swing method as presented by dan Shauger
Craig Frost from New Zealand longest drive is 330 meter's…talks about Dan Shauger's "How to Kill the Ball" golf instruction.
Golf Instruction – Weight Shift. A Simple drill to help you with your golf swing. No matter what golf swing method you use, learning to shift your weight is a critical element. Staying in balance while shifting your weight is another skill. Weight needs to be balanced in the arches of your feet
The club heads travel must have a stable center for the path and the depth of the arc to be controlled. The perfectly controlled arc determines the direction of the club heads travel and the place on the club face where the ball impacts.
Just as the pin of the compass must remain in the hole in the paper for the pencil to return to the exact spot it started from to complete the circle. If we can maintain a fixed in space swing circle center we will both have much more accurate and solid club ball contact, as well as more club head speed.
An illustration of why we have more club head speed can be felt an seen by twirling a weight on a short (one foot) piece of string. Try this; swing a weight, a keyring works fine, move your hand in a good sized circle and gradually make the center of rotation as small as you can. You will find that when the center of the arc moves as you swing the weight the weight goes slowly, as the arc gets tiny the weight is literally zooming around.

Just as an unbalanced wheel can not be spun as quickly as a balanced wheel can, the golf swing needs that kind of a stable center to both create speed and to also have the kind of precision contact we desire.
When we address the ball one of our most important duties is to locate the exact location of the swing circle center. We do this by using the club as part of the measuring tool (the other part of the tool is the correctly angled left arm) to precisely position it. This measurement, and the maintenance of it, is vital to the success of the shot.
If the swing circle center moves around we lose both speed and the ability to return to the exact spot we measured at address.

About Dan Shauger and Mike Austin
For those that haven't heard about Mike Austin he is the holder of the World record for hitting the longest drive of 515 yards in 1974 at a Seniors Open event. His record still stands today even though there have been significant advances in golf technology when it comes to drivers and even the balls we use.
Working with Mike Austin, Dan Shauger acquired privileged information about the golf swing that very few people have had the opportunity to learn about. Dan is a tradesmen which makes him the ideal person to go into the detail of exactly what makes this golf instruction work so well for golfers to hit long and straight. The key components of this golf swing are
throw the golf club from the top of your swing
Use your hips in lateral or side to side motion to shift your weight
keep your head still by using the lower body
Special compound pivot action of the hips
Throwing the Club Head from the top of your swing is a big no, no in most golf instruction. However when you move your hips using a compound action the throwing of the club from the top will actually occur somewhere down the bottom, or where your would normal release the club. The important factor here is that you must feel that you are releasing. It is especially important that this also happens slowly until you learn to do it faster. When you master the compound pivot or side to side action of the hips which is the key driver of the golf swing you will realise how simple this golf swing method is.
Many of Mike Austin's methods are not taught by golf professionals as some of his principles are in opposition to what they teach and believe, however the proof is in the pudding, who else do you know that has driven the ball 500 yards or more! If you do a search on Mike Austin or Dan Shauger you will find many resources including online videos to learn this golf instruction method. This is helpful especially if you have a visual learning style, unlike the analytical people who learn by reading.

Dan Shauger Golf Swing Set Up
Alma is showing how sometimes a shorter back swing is better than trying to reach the top.
Click this link for more online lessons. The actual 7 position is made between the arm and shoulder, I am demonstrating how to use the club shaft in a similar way. The number 7 position is between the shoulder line and the upper left arm for right handed players,it is not the angle between the leading arm (your left) and the club shaft.
Quick note from Dan Shauger
Although the angle you speak of in the videos will remain very close to what you are showing we are not holding that angle, it opens slightly before we get to the ball as the power arm extends at the elbow.
However we do arrive at the ball with the throwing wrist back. This creates the forward leaning shaft and the hands ahead of the ball position at impact.
Having said that we do not physically hold the the throwing wrist back, rather it is held back by the weight of the club as the pivot accelerates the club endwise toward the ball,
We simply allow the club to follow the arms down and out and allow the hands to react to centrifugal force and gravity and release fully through the ball.
At first when your players learn this the throwing wrist should be held back and the entire arm and shoulder "package" held exactly as it is at the top of the swing all the way to the ball.
The power arm should be allowed to naturally extend as the package returns to the ball with both the wrists relaxed at impact to allow the late arriving club head to swing.
