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.

    • I couldn't agree more. We had a Callaway fitting day at the club last week and I tried out new drivers. Went through all the bells and whistles and came to the conclusion that the Epic Flash I hit now with a Hzrdus Yellow shaft....goes further than the new Epics with the stock shaft. I actually hit the new Epic Max further with my 3 year old shaft.  I thought that was kinda funny. I guess I'm not getting the most out of my wedges, mine are at least 7-8 year old Clevelands. I suppose I need to upgrade. 
    • I suck, but I won $30 off my buddies so successful day I guess. I struck the ball really well all day but I had trouble finding fairways (5/14 just 1/7 on the front) this led to a ton of tree trouble that I didn't do a good job of managing. Had 10 GIR but only 2 birdies should have had more I had probably 6 looks under 8' and a few more under 15' but had some yippy strokes and didn't make much of anything all day. I was 0/7! on par saving putts my short game was pretty awful.   
    • Haven't decided if I'm going to let it count yet, but I got birdies on 1, 7 (definitely not counting this one as it was on a provisional green and played a lot shorter than normal) and 13 on my homecourse on Saturday. It was from the the red tees. I'll let it count, but with red number for now. Will hopefully be replaced with black/yellow numbers later this summer.  Missed a 12 feet eagle-putt on 1 (460 yard par 5) and sunk a 2 feet tap-in birdie on 13 (350 yard par 4) 
    • I'm with you. I pretty much don't think about it while hitting my full shots. But I always seem think about it when I'm lining up a birdie putt. I'm like "Ooo, this would be a nice one to cross off." or sometimes I just remember that I've already got this one.  The last two times I've played I've had reasonably good chances at birdie on number 7. Which at my course is a 170 +/- 10 or so par 3 over water. It's a tough hole because it's back in the corner or the golf property and kind of secluded from the wind. That is until your ball gets up in the air. Anyway, I've never birdied it. I've had two shots at it lately with putts of around 7-8 feet. 
    • Played 18 holes from the yellows (6210 yards, par 72, rating 72,7, slope 147) and was all over the place.  Shot 92 and had some excellent stretches of holes and some really bad ones. On holes 9 to 14 i made 5 pars and 1 double, only hitting 2 fairways, 1 green and only using 8 putts on that 6 hole stretch. It was looking like a good mid 80s round till after hole 15. +8 on the last 3 holes of the day is just a very, very sad way to end a round.   Shot of the day was my tee shot on hole 4, a 192 yard par 3. With a slight breeze in the back I hit a 7i to 8 feet past the hole. It landed a foot past the hole and it looked so good I stopped breathing while the ball was in the air. Missed the birdieputt, but still a great hole.  4/13 fairways, 2/18 greens! and 30! putts. A strange round of golf.
