The Biggest Mistake in Golf and How To Fix it FAST!


– There is a major epidemic. A disease in golf that’s most likely affecting your game and
you don’t even know it. In my opinion, it is the
worst thing in golf today and we’re gonna fix it, right now. (upbeat music plays) (hits ball) Did you see it? Did you see what I did? I did what you should never ever do. So, let’s break this down, alright? Well, hey, first, thanks for watchin’! And if you like the videos,
even if you don’t like ’em, please consider
subscribing to the channel. Keep you up to date, hit the bell, so you get all the latest
updates and notifications. Thanks for watchin’. Okay! So, here we go. Watch closely and let me
know if you pick it up here. (hits ball) Did you see it? Did you see it? Did you see what I did? Alright, check it out, watch! Here’s what I see everybody doing. You’re moving your hands way too much! You start like this. Wait! You see this is how you start. Those hands, those hands
are your worst enemy. They’re, it’s the nightmare, it’s the, it’s the disease that’s
plaguing your game. And it’s causing so many issues. And we’ve gotta get rid of it. You cannot start like this. Here’s why. See, watch this. When you start with your hands, your club could go like this, and your hands can get
farther away from your body. If you’re picking your hands up, and rotating ’em at the same
time, it looks like this. (motor running) That’s horrible! That’s gonna be a mess when you get to the top of your back swing! No, no good! No good! Also, you could do this. I
see this all the time. That’s no good either! See, you start rotating those hands and you never lift your arms! You never swing your arms,
you just, you just rotate! Who wants this swing? (hits ball) And you’re gonna be a disaster. No one’s gonna wanna hang out with you. But we hear from so many people, for so long about
rotating those hands open, getting that toe pointed up. This, here’s the toe. They talk about getting it pointed up. So we interpret it as, turn the hands. Totally wrong. Totally
wrong! Don’t do that! It’s better to have the toe this way than this way. If you’re gonna make a mistake, make that mistake; not that mistake. Even toe-up, eh, this is better. Toe-down a little bit
is better than toe-up. Here’s toe-up. It’s better to be here. They say, they say you want this, this, to match your angle
of your, your spine angle. So, if you’re here, if I’m standing straight up, well then, that’s toe-up. Okay? When I’m bent down a little bit, oh, that’s where it should be. You see that? No one stands like this. Never have that open! No way! Toe-up, just match your
toe up on your chest, that’s your stance? Well,
that’s where that should be. Like that. How do we get there though? Here is how we get there. Like this. You see watch, watch this weekend at the U.S. Open, alright? Watch Xander Schauffele, watch that guy. Or search him on YouTube,
look for his swing. He does something that is just perfect. You’re just gonna work on this. Nothing going on here.
No, no. No! Don’t do that! This is your take away, right in here. Nothing. Nothing here. You’re gonna take, I, I don’t
even want this. That, no. No! Too much! Nothing! That’s what I want that
takeaway to look like. And you have your arms straight but no hands at all. Hands are your enemy! Don’t even think about it. Right here. No hands. And that’s your swing. Not in here. No. Hands going straight back;
straight back and up. Right in here. Right in there. Just the “no hands” rule, we’ve got to get your hands outta the golf swing. I’m begging you, I’m pleading with you. Take your hands out of your swing. Please! Whoever you take lessons
from will thank you. Everybody, your friends will thank you. People on the street will
stop you and thank you. Thank you! They can’t stand watching you, guys at the range are just walking up to you saying, “thank
you! You’re making me sick! “Finally, you took your
hands outta your swing!” And they’ll hug you,
everybody will love you more. The world, we’ll see world peace. Just take your hands
outta your swing, please! (hits ball) I probably, I probably had
too much hands, even there. I’m telling you. This will solve the world’s problem. Take your hands out of your swing. I’m begging you. So, please, please,
don’t make me beg again. Okay? You guys are sending me
your swings, thank you! I love looking at your swings. Keep sending those in, and
I’ll analyze your swings. Alright? Click the link below. I’m looking forward to
analyzing your swing. But what I see everybody doing is getting those hands,
way too many hands. Too many hands, too many hands! When you take it back with no hands, you’ll be looking like this. Nothing. I didn’t rotate one nibble. Nothing. None of that. Nothing. Just no hands. Not back here. Not this. That’s not good, right? We’re gonna go straight
back with our hands. Straight back with our hands. And up. That’s your drill. You don’t, you don’t need
your hands for distance. Now just, forget that! Let’s remove all hands for now. We’ll add a little wrist later! But, first, we gotta
get rid o’ those hands. (techno music plays) Alright, so while you’re
watching the U.S. Open this week, all you’re
thinking about is no hands. Watch everybody! Watch all their swings and see how much hands they start with. It’s probably zero. Most everybody I see. That’s all I want you to think about. Look at hands, this week. Okay? Thanks for watching, comment below. Let me know whose takeaway
move you like the best. That’s what I wanna know. Who’s your favorite
takeaway-er of the golf club? Comment below. Let me know. I like Xander Schauffele, that’s my guy. For takeaway. My favorite
takeaway on tour. Alright? Anyways, thanks for watching! I hope this helps. No hands. No hands this week! A week of no hands. I’m telling you, it’ll
help the whole world. It’ll help you. Thanks for watching, hit the like, hit the share, hit the comment, subscribe to the channel, too! We’ll see ya next time. (intense music plays)

  1. All this time I’ve been purposely putting my hands in and trying to use lag. Man thanks for this video.

  2. I have an idea to help people with the grip. When you stand behind the ball to line up the shot, hold the club in your lead hand at your side with the club face 90 degrees away from you. Then walk up and get in position. What do u think?

  3. I have never seen you on the PGA?????????are you a pro???or just all talk?you should be the best golfer of all time as much as you know.win a PGA game this year and I will do everything you say. Lol wtf???

  4. Man you were so impassioned that I got rid of both my hands by cutting them off. Now I have no problem with my takeaways cos I cant dial them up. I've lost 4 pounds already. Great diet advice, but now I have to duct-tape every club for every shot to my bloodied stumps which means that under the new rules I am now penalised for slow play.

  5. since I work from your lessons my game is way better. The focus on noo hands is awesome… I can't recall the tutorial where you mention unscrew on the downswing. please help to locate. Thank you for the awesome tutorials.

  6. The first video that actually solved a terrible and consistent slice. Coming back from a long layoff. Hit the links and the driving range. No matter what, and in tune with the advice of countless other YT videos, I would still slice and slice. Just came from the driving range after watching THIS video. Wow. Such a huge about face. This discussion about the wrists was a game changer. Thanks.

    The title of the video gives little hint to what is actually being addressed in the video. That 174K watched count should/could be much higher. I was actually watching how you built your backyard driving cage, when I stumbled across this video. Very very fortuitous.

  7. This video was awesome. I usually hit my irons pretty pure but the last two times on the course I caught a case of the yepps, and this was the cure.

  8. PLEASE HELP a vidro of my swing is "Conor Clarke Collection golf" it's a 54 second clip, have a look and comment, thanx

  9. Just practice saving the planet with that move, your a genius mate. Now the chicks might want to hang out

  10. Awesome videos! I’m glad I found your channel. Do you have a follow up video on taking the club up ?
    As for this video it seems that I should take it back to horizontal to the middle of my trail foot. If that’s right I believe I have always turned way too much .
    Thanks again, love the lessons

  11. I teach English in a foreing country and what you feel about the hands is exactly the same I feel when they pronounce final e in English words. Name game kite etc.

  12. I believe they used to call that a one piece takeaway and it starts with the feets if you're not standing on your feets correctly everything else goes to hell !! And yeah I know how to spell feet. Make yourself a good day love the video !

  13. Matt, great video! Love your channel! Somebody along my golf journey have a tip and said you should visualize a mirror on the face of your club and try to keep the ball inside the view of the mirror on your take away for as long as you can. This really helped me to eliminate the flipping of the hands.

  14. Love your videos! Your energy and enthusiasm are great! You come across like you really really want to help people get better at this great game! And the instruction is brilliant too! My new go to instructor! 👍 thank you

  15. Love the way you teach. Incredible simply, always explaining the cause of a bad shot. You're my favorite YouTube teacher by far

  16. Funny I happen to come across this vid because this was plaguing me the past 2 rounds. The rotation of the body starts the takeaway and most of the backswing. Once my body can't rotate anymore during the backswing, that's when I feel my hands/wrist move a bit.

  17. I can't take it anymore. This dude is a genius. First time I've ever subscribed and clicked a bell on anything.

  18. Will pass this video onto my 29 hcp golf mate here in the U.K. He is "all hands" and so inconsistent. Cheers 🍺

  19. I have watched thousands of different videos. I am now Mr. Shortgame exclusive. Matt, if you ever stop, I will hunt you down wherever you are. I am a big guy. Mercilous. It will not be pretty. There will be NO world peace.

  20. Love your work, Matt. I reckon you're right for the most part here. There does however appear to be a few shots where setting the wrist-cock early is recommended, such as bunker shots. What's your take? Gary Player seems to think it's so.

  21. Lmao. I missed the instruction first time because I was laughing so hard.. As a junior football coach I never show what they shouldn’t do but reinforce the right way. But I can understand that golf is a different beast. Most times I don’t know what I’m doing is wrong, so Showing wrong then right makes perfect sense. Thanks again Matt for another informative video.

  22. Took your advice and now this is my only swing thought. It made a huge difference for a novice player like me and I can hit more consistent shots in both irons and driver. Thank you!

  23. Shows how it can be so confusing with all the instruction out there. Your first example where you showed ‘rotating hands while lifting’ looked like a great position at the top to me.

  24. I was constantly hooking my driver after years of hitting a high draw and I couldn’t figure out what I was doing wrong, I eventually noticed I was rotating my hands before I started my swing and as soon as I stopped doing that and kept my hands still I started hitting the ball in the fairway again, I didn’t see it on this video but I wish I had and I could’ve sorted the problem quicker, good advice 🏌️‍♂️

  25. I ve been told my hands break down at in pact whatever that means but I know I am very handy on my back swing and I am the top slicer at my local corse lol my boy is like he has no wrists to even bend and he hits straight a ton

  26. My favorite is Matthew Wolf ive copied i just took out his hip movements before he takes it away. It feels like im taking it way outside and straight then down through to the ball. Its greatly improved my confidence and consistency.

  27. there's a difference between rotating and a 'early' set like Nick Faldo did. Just imagine you're turning your right hand down (left) towards the ball on the take away

  28. it makes perfect sense, but people think (including myself) this gives you power! after some time, you'll learn your game will be crap after doing this for sometime!

  29. Really enjoy your videos. I’m a former caddy and it’s refreshing to hear someone talk normally. Giving people tips that they can actually understand. Too many times I’d caddy for someone that came from a lesson and they were god awful because they got too into the instructions and their heads.

  30. Thanks for the lesson or was it more of a threat? Either way I'm taking it to the range as my last time out my consistentcy to hit a great shot really suffered and I didn't love myself. I took the liberty to forward your work to the U.N. to help with the world's problems. Keep up great work

  31. I'm still waiting for world peace, did I miss it or am I doing something else to delay it. I didn't realise this was so #important!!

  32. Dude, I do that and its really Hard to get back where I want to at Impact.I still Hit descent shots but having to overcome alot.
    Thanks

  33. I needed this tip last night….dammit. But that is more like my wood swing. Target line back and through.

    World peace ….lol
