Getting over-shaped can stop the top and bottom working properly and make it difficult to cover the ball at impact. There are quite a few causes of over-shape during the swing. We have just posted a new Live Lesson. Gary talks about the lower and how it works in The Right Sided Swing and how it really only turns from the groin area.
The UK Instructors Seminar at Lingfield this week was a great opportunity for some of the GEGAS instructors training in the UK to get some hands on time with Gary. The weather held out and Gary worked his magic on just about every attendee. Some amazing swing transformations that we will be posting shortly. Gary and the Right Sided team got to see some of the great work the UK Instructors are doing over here with their students and we would like to thank everybody who attended. Thank you to GEGAS coordinator in the UK, Luke Ringrose, for organizing the event, and the Marriott for their hospitality and providing such a fantastic facility.
We look forward to next year.
Luke,I’m probably one of many who let you know satisfaction at developing our game using the right sided swing and the website.I have been studying the live lessons for the last month as winter weather has reduced my hours of practice on the course. I’m finding that many of these videos relate to the status of my current right sided swing.During the last months, I’ve studied these elements in the Steps 1-5 on the site and made progress transitioning from my old swing to the right sided approach.But watching Gary advise students in the live lessons has really pulled the right sided swing details together.I went out on my local course last evening just before a snow storm struck and practiced the fundamentals I observed in the live lessons. I really believe I’m catching on. Yesterday was exciting and I’m looking forward to getting back out.I wanted you to know the benefit in learning that the live lessons and before/after sections of your site offer. The Steps 1-5 serve as a good beginning resource. I still look at several of these for refreshers. But the live lessons showing students who are at different stages of developing their game gives me a way to compare my current swing with theirs and helps me understand Gary’s recommendations and how to apply them to my current swing.I’ll forward a video of my swing after I have practiced my latest progress. Believe I’ll have something to show you in several more weeks.Best regards,Steve
Happy Christmas to the Edwin family and I hope you have a wonderful New Year.
Last three rounds in the winds of St Michaels…..37pts. 41pts on Sat 2nd in A Grade and today 41 points to win A Grade.
8 birdies and several missed birdies due to me putting like Steve Wonder 😡. Also same ball every round…..not one lost ball in a few rounds now.
My Mates know I’m an RSS advocate and today as I’m playing so well again…..they stand in the fairway asking me …..” how does the RSS work”. I say. “. Go to Gary Edwin’s website, I’m a member of them all and Gary’s site is THE best of them all”
I’m playing so well and you may recall I mentioned during our lesson that my driver had not left my bag for 7 years as I couldn’t hit it out of my shadow…no joke ! I am now the best of my group with a driver and all i do is my best RSS swing and make sure I have True Loft .
Just some feedback from a very happy RSS member 👍⛳️
I just wanted to update you on my satisfaction with your right sided swing. As stated at an earlier e-mail I had both hips replaced a year and a half ago. The swing is so easy on the body I only notice my replacements going up and down from the greens. I am 69 years old and except for my hips am fit. I have a strong upper body and still lift weights. I am built like Peter Senior, but am only 5’7″ like Gavin Coles.
I can not express enough how helpful and good your videos are. Gary’s explanations of the swing are outstanding. It is too bad that there are not more right sided instructors in the U.S. I hit most irons and woods straight or with a little tail most of the time. Most of my screw ups are around the green or putting. However, I am getting more consistent with chipping and pitching with the right sided swing.
I just wanted you to know how happy I am with the swing. I may not even be golfing with out finding ” the Right Sided Golf Swing” because I was a slugger and violently slung my hips. I wanted to illustrate what the learning curve has been in my case, and perhaps this is like a lot of other hackers.I hope my thought are correct on the things I listed. I AM VERY HAPPY I FOUND YOUR SITE KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK. Thanks again.
Gary and Luke,
The swing is great…feels good and am having proven results. I’m 69, turned professional in 1970, retired in 2012 as Director of Golf and am now just teaching and playing. I have studied all of the teachers with reputations in the states and also Australians such as Croker, Hughes, and Ayers….Nobody compares to you. The RSS really struck a nerve with me…I have about 24 hours invested looking at all of the content as a Platinum member and your presentations at seminars and live lessons with professionals and amateurs is extraordinary. I have always been impressed with Senior and Pampling which finally lead me to researching you further, and it has been a pleasure to watch the meteoric rise of Rebecca Artis and to view her lessons on the website…what a beautiful action she has!
I will be a champion for the RSS in Texas and already have one student join you as a Platinum member…
Keep those videos coming…they are a great learning tool for us teachers and students alike.

Good morning,I just wished to say thank you for such a great swing method. I am 31 (overweight, not flexible), and have tried every method, with the same major issues being fats, thins, slices (longer clubs), pulls:
-Rotary (C Quinton)
-Perfect connection (C.J Geocks)
-Peak performance (Don Trahan)
– Square to square (Doug Tewell)
-One plane swing/two plane swing (J Hardy’s book)
-Lessons from a PGA coach (Modern method, turn left sided shift weight)
A few weeks ago I stumbled across RSS, watched the videos and immediately was impressed by the no nonsense approach. I had immediate results at the range. I then saw Jason Pavese yesterday in Canberra, and he was able to correct a few of my issues straight away. I cannot believe the immediate change, its ridiculous. I love the concept of setting the shape on the wall, letting my arms swing and staying centred. I need to work on a number of things but just wished to pass my thank you on to you and advise that Jason Pavese is an absolute credit to the RSS method. I plan to see him once a month and be an active member of the RSS site.
Mr Edwin and team,
I had left knee replacement, right handed player, and struggled with my swing. I had Gary’s video and studied it over and over and applied it with adaptations for my body and such. I’m striking the ball again better than I did BEFORE I had knee replacement. Yesterday, at my home course Canebrake Club Athens, Alabama I shot a 73 from the Tournament tees. I feel rejuvenated about the game at 56 now. Thank you for sharing your knowledge of golf with us all. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to improve.
Gary.. Been playing 60 years fro 4 to 10 hdcp. Taught for Jimmy Ballard in the 90s after 34 years in the USN.
It should be getting easier with a stroke grace each year, but alas I suffer from LOD.
Have come to grips with that of course. This note is just to let you know I cherish your website…on it at least once a week and learn something useful each time.
My regression is always slide, lift, flip etc. ..frustrating. Thanks to you and Alex
my shape is OK. Schlee taught me right wrist long ago, but I never mastered until I
your recent shape lessons re arms before address….most helpful.
Anyway, keep up the great site. My dream is to travel to your teaching site before I go to the other side of the divot. However I know you are very busy.
Looking forward to meeting you someday.
Warmest regards, Phillip McNall, San Ramon CA
I’m not sure if you remember me but I received a lesson off you at the start of last year during the floods (the fool who travelled from Bribie island in flood waters). I just thought I’d let you know how my year went after having the lesson from you and from studying your videos. I had the best year of my club golfing career, I won the foursomes, mixed foursomes, 4ball stroke, A grade club champs, and the match play champs. My handicap has stayed on a consistent 3 for the whole year, I’m constantly working and improving my swing, and trying to get rid of that bloody steep downswing.
Just thought I would let you know how my game is traveling, and to say thank you for the lesson and videos, and hopefully i will see you for another lesson this year.
Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you having worked on being “right sided” now for around 8 months. I have spent the last 10 years as a club pro/trainee pro searching for a repeatable swing and have got nowhere. In fact at the end of last year I almost decided to finish playing all together and concentrate on my shop and club business!!
I came across you on you tube and then became a member of your site and have to say I am not the same golf pro as I was last year. I have done nothing but work on shape, wrist angles and radius all year and I have never played so consistently. Today I have managed to make the team for my buying group for a competition at open championship venue Turnberry, the first thing I have won since around 2004!
So I just wanted to e mail and say thanks for sharing your knowledge with us and for creating a swing that is powerful, repeatable and most of all consistent.
All I need to do know is perform in Scotland in August!!
Kind regards and best wishes

About six months ago (or so) I signed up for your site as I was very interested in your swing. At that time I had a very difficult time getting the videos because it would take a long time to open a file and then the video would stall so I could never really see the videos I needed without a lot of frustration.
But now that your new website is up, I’ve watched some of your lessons with the PGA pros and also am able to get to all the videos that I need. It’s only been a few days but already I am striking the ball better than I have in my 25 years of playing golf.
I compete on the Golf Week Amateur Golf Tour. I’ve been struggling in the A Flight now for two years and was almost ready to quit but because of the simplicity of your swing, I am anxious for the new season to begin in February. I have not felt this way about golf in a long time so thank you, Gary, and your staff. Keep up the good work.
I want to thank you and your dad for providing me with the information to transform my game. I get so much out of your monthly posting in the members area. The whole experience has been great.
Played yesterday, right after watching the lesson, but BEFORE hitting any balls…just tried to adjust the set-up (rt leg and foot, and hands more out)…16 greens in reg for 68 (if I could have made a few, it would have been REAL low)…ball flight was much better, distance control with wedges was much improved…THANK YOU!!
Just wanted to express how much I am enjoying the members section. I am anxious to learn as much about the right sided swing as possible. The video’s of gary explaining his concepts is great.
The Set-up of Peter Thomson is legendary! Commentators used to talk about his customary low right shoulder but there is much more to learn from the set-up angles and arm bias of this five-time Open Champion. This month in the Members Area Gary looks at the reasons some students shut-off with their shoulders when trying to get into the Shape. We have some video coming that will make putting even easier, a Live Lesson on the Body Release, and more … Enjoy!

One of the most overlooked principles in the Golf Swing is perhaps the most important! The correct arm bias at set-up is crucial in determining the Shape of the body and how the arms work during the swing. Most people who leak power set-up with their right arm straight and then over-shape or invert their body. Both scenarios stop golfers generating power correctly and hitting with true loft and compression. We have just posted a video of Gary explaining it, nothing new…. that is a Ben Hogan drilling it above!
Getting setup correctly is crucial if you want to turn correctly. If the right side of the body gets blocked it is impossible to turn in the correct direction and maintain your Shape. Most right-side blockers set up with backward hips and toe their right foot in. This month Gary explains how to free up your right-side so it can turn properly. He also answers some questions on arm lift and analyses the amazing wedge game of recent PGA Tour winner, Cameron Smith.
Gary often says “release is for prisoners”! What he means is that you do not need to change your initial wrist angles to “release” the club. This month in the Member Area Gary demonstrates the Toe-up Draw and explains how to shape your ball without extending your arms and flipping your wrists. We also have a new video coming on clearing the right side, a new Live Lesson, and Gary analyzes European Tour Player, Alex Norens‘ swing.
Doing the same thing on the course that you do in practice can be difficult. If you set the angles of your arms and wrists before you walk into the ball it makes it much easier to maintain your Shape on the tee-box. We have just posted some new video where Gary explains how his players walk into the ball and the importance of being in Shape and ready to hit. Gary is with Rod Pampling this week at Troon for the Open Championship. Go Pamps !
Peter Senior fired a bogey free round of six-under-par at the Toshiba Classic at Newport Beach Country Club and is currently in a tie for 5th. He kept his hopes of regaining a full card alive after he Monday qualified for the event. “It has been a bit frustrating because my game is in such good shape at the moment but I haven’t been able to get into events.”
He will need to either win or finish runner-up in the Toshiba Classic if he is to gain entry to next week’s event in Arizona. Irrespective of what happens this week Senior will still have playing privileges next year in his seventh season on the Champions Tour.
Holding your Shape in the downswing can be difficult. Many students have difficulty with the transition because they do not turn in the correct direction going back. We have just uploaded a new Tour Player Lesson that explains the feeling of transition if you have the back-swing correct. We have also uploaded some new Short Game, for anyone who has a loop in their putting stroke this Drill will fix it!
