Swinging a Rope Video

Friends of the Richie3Jack golf blog, Rick Nielsen (TGM AI) and Ralph Perez posted this wonderful YouTube video of Rick swinging a large rope.

This is a great practice tool for all golfers, especially novices who really don't understand how to power their golf swing with the pivot. It can also teach the lagging clubhead takeaway and if you want to learn how to float load, this is probably a good way to go about it as well.

Thanks for the shout-out Rich. You can also check the blog and find Gregg Mchatton's 4 finger swing. A great way to feel what it's like to sustain lag.

It is a great practice for hitters???? Thanks.

It would not be a good drill for hitting, I think I might break something if I tried that. :-)

What a beautiful motion by Mr. Nielsen!

I think yes and no. If you are struggling to understand how to thrust the right arm, I would stay away from it. But if you have that down and are trying to lessen your shaft lean and/or improve your pivot, then this is a really good drill.
