Hi! Thank you for this useful video. By the way, I notice a lot of people keep on talking about Golfonax Training Program (just google it), but I’m not sure if it is good. Have you tried using this golf program called Golfonax Training Program? I’ve heard some great things about it.

nomadthebiker says:

4 point what? Which club do you belong to ? I assume the handicap committee have you listed ? Id like to see that please.

georgesrhart says:

someone who became a 4 handicap after 10 months of playing, who are you?

nomadthebiker says:

“This dummy” ? !! Who the hell are you ? !

Doris Harris says:

It still surprises me, how some people don’t know about Golfonax Training Program (search on google), despite the fact that a lot of people improve their golf skills with this training program. Thanks to my cousin who told me about Golfonax Training Program, I’ve earn the respect and admiration of my friends and other players.

Tom Watson has over 70 professional wins 8 of those being majors. I think he knows where he is getting this “shit” from.

georgesrhart says:

it took this dummy that long to figure out you have to stay down on the ball?

spontekk says:

I love this guy and his honest training methods. I have his book on the short game – getting up and down. The best read improved my short game drastically.

Absolutely fantastic information here. Look for the video “Plane and Release by Feel” for more great information related to turning your shoulders around your spine.

bensta690 says:

omg… this is the missing link in my swing… i was doing the exact same thing and no matter how hard I tried i couldn’t stop my head from lowering in my swing or coming from the inside or hitting it fat- this keeps my head level and doesnt hunch my back!! I’ma drill this out for the next 2 weeks XD

rne1971 says:

So Tom Watson, major winner and still going strong on tour at his age, doesn’t know what he’s talking about? He’s hit more golf balls than we’ve had hot dinners, so I reckon he might just have a clue.

Also, your comment about ‘tour players don’t do it like that’ is pointless. 99% of folks learning on YouTube are not tour players, just normal weekend golfers. This tip helped me and, looking at the comments, a lot of others.

Btw, the tip is from at least one tour pro who DOES hit it like that.

Folks, if you want to play good or even great Golf, pay close attention to this video…I know because I have been playing for 48 years and this is the greatest lesson you will ever see!!

Chuck3377 is 100% right, don,t think

chuck3377 says:

Listen, I am pissed about my back, so I am going to give you all the secret for free. You MUST play in the subconscious, not the conscious.

TheSlim1976 says:

Cockwatcha you are a bell end, this is the best advice I’ve ever had, never swung the club as well !

9 people lose their spine angle all the damn time.

Mikee535 says:

I can’t believe the negative comments and advertising here. This is good advise and one of the many parts of a sound swing.

Tom should be ashamed to play at Angeles National Golf Club! About 10 employees are suing for sex and anti-Jewish discrimination! They are an embarrassment to the PGA!

Mark Jansen says:

Tom is absolutely right, but he is forgetting that most amateur golfers lack the flexibility to turn their body that way.

More terminology; Just think of turning around an axis…An axis does not move. Also learn not to reach for the ball, stand tall, knees slightly flexed and turn your shoulders around the axis!!

danason20501 says:

Imagine two dowl rods sticking up out of the ground the same height as you are and outside and just behind your pinky toe. You need to make your backswing and down swing inside that area. Your target side hip will touch and press the forward dowl 6 to 8 inches toward the target. Weight transfers from the inside right foot at the top to inside left foot first, then you swing through. The matching shoulder angles is great dead on description of this complex move.

David Schultz says:

it’s not even really “spine angle”. it’s turning your shoulders how he describes, as well as having your shoulders be parallel to the clubshaft. if you hold a club straight out in front of you, shaft lying level to the ground and toe pointing straight up, the only way to swing and keep the club level to the ground is if your shoulders turn level too. Since you bend over, your shoulders must still turn “level”, but in the sense that you are turning level while bent over.

teygrxx says:

Yup, spine angle is the major key wiithout a doubt. When I start to hit poorly and do other bad things I just go back to maintaining good spine angle that fixes most of it. Spine angle fixes so many of the other tips like.. keep your head down, stay in the shot, clear the hips, swing plane, etc. All of that happens automatically when you maintain proper spine angle. Now… if I could just figure out how to maintain spine angle consistantly…. Lol
