Thanks for stopping by. I created this website as a resource just for you to support you on your golfing journey as I know how tricky learning this game can be…to say the least!

I personally found learning the game too long and difficult in the early days. I read all the books, watched all the videos but my game was not improving. Then after studying various forms of neuro science, motor learning, psychology and personal development in less than two years I went from struggling golfer to the final stage of the Open Championship.

On YouTube and my personal website ( I will bring you the most up to date training, training that is getting tangible results for my clients right now. I don’t know where you are in your golfing journey, you could be just starting out or maybe your body isn’t as flexible as it once was or you’ve got ambitions to slash your handicap. Wherever you are I’ve created a place here you can learn, share your ideas, ask questions and get all the support you need to enjoy this great game.

Be prepared though. If its a quick fix you are after Im not your man. Here I will give you step-by-step advice that you can take straight to the practice ground and apply to the course but it will require you to get stuck in, screw up…a lot, practice some more and then watch those scores tumble

I’ve had the pleasure of coaching thousands of students all around the world and if you are up for the challenge and are ready to get in the game…LETS GO TO WORK!

      i either top them badly or send the ball flying so low it mows the lawn, it has the speed but no loft.

    4. S G says:

      If you don’t have rotation you’ll top the ball. I just learned something. Thanks!

    5. thank you great info will practice this swing around the body yes.yes.yes. Curtis Hildebrandt

    6. Chris Smith says:

      For a drive, the ball is off the left heel. For a fairway wood, where is the ball in the stance?

    7. I am just here to learn how to play for my VR Golf game. I can kill the green in Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005, My daddy tells me I should be able to play in real life since I can play a video game. I told him "know how to play and the body knowing how to play are two different monkeys. I need to hit the ball just right, not just hit it" Well I think he is part right, but I just need to get the stance and grip right.

    8. I'm loving this guys videos. I'm new and try many however his are Best!

    9. Class Tuition Danny – simply and clearly explained – taking the fear out of the fairway 3 wood! Well done! Alan

    10. Danny, thanks so much for this lesson. Topping and hitting behind the ball with my fairway woods/ hybrids is a challenge for me. I’m going to practice your lessons and then take it to the course. I’m a big proponent of Moe Norman’s single plane swing and found that striking the ball using this method has reduced my tendency to slice. Will this style work with your lessons ?

    11. Paulo Mena says:

      Hi Danny, can you show more videos focusing on the grip on the clubs. Thanks

    12. Philip Smith says:

      Man I don’t know what I did, but I somehow toed my new stealth driver, and broke the head. 😂🤦🏼‍♂️

    13. A says:

      This is so helpful watching this again after topping my woods. Please can you do similar but on an uphill lie? Our first fairway is uphill after drive and I keep topping the ball. Soul destroying! Please help, Danny!

    14. Always the best explanation of "our issues"

    15. Red Ghost says:

      Watching him hit those three toppers made me feel good because that’s exactly how I do it. 😮

    16. Oko YT says:

      wth is foot spray lol

    17. HG J says:

      Wood Topping is horrible. Always frustrated. Thanks for good tips. Isn' t it crucial keeping spine angle for stopping top ball?

    18. Gordon Smith says:

      Danny, Thanks so much. I had given up on my woods but thanks to you am consistently hitting them now. Distance is increasing as I play. 3 wood from 5 yards to over 100 and 5 woods to 90 yds after only one hour of practice. Thanks again.

    19. Carol Lewis says:

      Thanks so much. After watching your video I pressed my hands forward and I’m hitting my fairway woods consistently. Didn’t have a clue what I was doing wrong. Much appreciated!!
