I bought the videos of the 5 keys system and I'm trying to learn.
I have 2 questions that I would like to put in the forum 
regarding key 2:
1 - This system can be used by senior golfers with regard to weight 
transfer by the hip forward.

2- In my swing I would like to incorporate the indicated rotating 
movement below instead of putting the hip forward.

Are there any inconveniences? 
Thank you

I think the weight transfer just kind of happens, at least in my case it does?

Vasco - you should get good info here, we have some real experts.  I do think you might expand on your question, it's very vague.....perhaps a translation clarification.  GOOD LUCK

 

Side comment - Left handed people have one advantage with most instructors when observing head on - they can see it all in mirror image.

Training videos should have the option to flip depending on the handedness of the instructor vs the student.

Mirror view for head on, same handed for down the line.

That's not really a question, but if you're asking if senior golfers can bump their hips forward, the answer is yes. You're only talking about 4-6" of movement.

For some older golfers, we pre-set a little more weight forward to help them if they're not quite fast enough or flexible enough, though that's pretty rare, actually.

That video isn't very good, IMO. If he only rotated, he wouldn't be forward on his front foot at the end. He'd be 50/50.

Good golfers get their weight and pressure forward. They do this with a little transfer of the hips forward and then the hips rotate as well. The first move is more of a hip forward motion, then rotation peaks later as the forward motion slows. Granted, this is all within a time span of about a tenth of a second, but that's still generally the process.

One good topic on this:

And a re-born discussion there (read the first few pages above, and then read to the end starting at the below):

If you have more questions, I'd love to hear them.

A younger Rory here. I hope this isn't a wast of time but I thought maybe you'd like to see a face on swing with the rotation in various stages of the golf swing. @iacas posted some great pics of golfers at address and impact which of course shows the lateral hip move being done. I just thought for those of us with less trained eyes you may like to see an example of the hips throughout the swing. Hope you find this helpful in some way. The positions of the golf swing used here are described as:

A1.    Address

A2.    Shaft  parallel to ground.

A3.    Lead arm parallel to ground.

A4.    Top of the backswing.

A5.    Lead arm parallel (downswing)

A6.    Shaft parallel (downswing)

A7.    Impact.   

 


  

 

 


  
                                                  
 

I've just tried to arrange the pics. They were all in order then when I posted them they became scattered. Sorry for this. But they're still in 'order' somewhat.

Thank you all for your comments. They are all very useful.
In fact my aim was to ensure that the 5 ks system was in biomechanical terms advisable for seniors.

I'm 58 and can attest it is absolutely perfect for Seniors. Remember 5SK is not a particular swing method. The 5 Simple Keys are the things that all good golf swings have in common. All of these are achievable for any age player. Working with a good instructor can get you on the right path. 

The first 3, Steady Head, Weight forward at impact, In-line at impact are the ones to focus on first and can be done with any swing speed. 4 and 5, diagonal swing path and face control at impact are more advanced, but still achievable for seniors.

If you don't have a good instructor in your local area, I recommend Evolvr. It is not that expensive and will really help. The instructors at Evolvr are all 5SK certified.

    • Of course I know I can take more than one. And I usually do. Every now and then this seems to be a mistake I will make.  Like I said I don't really think I make too many course management decision errors. 
    • Yep, I get that. There is so much in life that needs to be prioritized over golf. Golf is still a game. Life, and the people in need to be given more priority. Sometimes I forget that. But hopefully, there will be a time in the future when you can do your 4 day golf school. Best wishes. 
    • Both. Thanks, that's interesting. I do address the ball with the driver club head on the ground. I'll check what happens when I hover it slightly. Now I'm a "low-pegger", so at impact the driver header is pretty close to the ground. I still get a few degrees upwards AoA. I try to address the ball towards the toe with driver. Just to avoid "heeliness". Could that actually have the opposite effect? My brain thinks I need to move the club "longer out"? I can also add that I'm an inside-outer, probably coming from the inside 5 degrees.
    • Really appreciate your input, I’m not going to add more than 1.5 inches as per info I’ve read and seen on some videos such as Mcgolf. It’s for my brother and the reason I’m leaning towards keeping the ping shafts is the flex suits him, I just don’t know if the butt extension is going to make the shaft stronger or not. Was hoping someone had done it before, guess I do it and see what happens. Cheers 
    • I’ve got tennis elbow so I’ve only been a few times over the last few years as hitting balls one after the other does me no favours.   I’ve got tennis elbow so I’ve only been a few times over the last few years as hitting balls one after the other does me no favours.   I usually play Wednesdays and Fridays also the odd Monday  . If I don’t play Monday I will often go and have some practice, either that or a Tuesday. I often take the Driver , 3 wood 4,5 & 6 irons out of the bag and go with the rest. Learn to hit shots with the clubs I have ,stop around the green have a few chips ,pitches putts etc.  Also I read Dave Pelz’s short game book a while back. I’ve adapted my bike and can fit a wedge on it. At night I go down to the corner of a mown area by sports fields. I take turns of which wedge, and do pitch & 2 different ‘finesse’ swings. Over summer I’ve gotten a pretty fair idea of how far I hit the various swings & it’s definitely paid dividends . I regularly get up & down from under 100 yards, especially under 40/50.  Before I just sort of guessed which club, and the other benefit is swinging slower I find I’m much more accurate with my direction.
