Ok, here is the first version of the RST Guided Online Experience that walks you through the RST methodology. You can now be walked through the RST program in a proper order rather than being left to figure out for yourself what videos to watch first. There are also other new great features:
 
1. Notes - You can now take notes while you're watching videos that are stored forever so you can review them anytime, anywhere.
 
2. Favorites - You can now keep a list of your "favorite" videos that are all accessible in one place by clicking the "Favorites" tab in the RST video player.
 
3. Preferences - You can change your preferences back and forth anytime between working through the RST program and having full unlimited video access. Simply click the "Preferences" tab at the top of the screen after you login.
 
4. Progress - Your progress is tracked as you watch each video, that information is stored. The system lets you know which videos you've already seen and which ones you still need to watch.
 
This is just V1, I plan on adding a lot more guidance to the program, but want to get this out as this is a big upgrade already and I'd like your feedback and feature requests. To begin using it now, simply login and click the Preferences tab at the top of the screen and choose your program. If you switch back and forth, your information is still stored, so you don't lose your progress by switching programs.

Chuck,
Got a link to the program? Just kidding as I managed to navigate to the program and begin to go thru the step by step process. So far, everything looks great and it is setup superbly. Will give a more through look as I progress thru the program.
WTG!!!!!!!Thumbs UpClapClap

Chuck,
 
It looks like you can only take notes in the Guided Online Experience...is that right?  I would love to be able to take notes when in the full video mode.
 
Nice work!

This is a great video setup, it's nice to have all videos setup in order. For me, this will make the training/learning experience more fluid.

Hi Chuck and Everyone,

I'm really looking forward to getting to grips with this, as the more I learn about RST and the more I work on my own swing and with other people, I'm finding that the big challenge for most people (including myself)  is structuring their learning correctly and mastering each stage before moving on.

The site is a phenomenal resource for learning about the golf swing.  However this creates its own pitfalls.  It is very easy to skip crucial areas and just work on the latest video or the 'sexy' stuff like impact positions and the way the club is released.

I have done a few online lessons and live lessons in the past couple of weeks where students are working on the later videos, despite having basic and obvious issues with grip, posture, balance or ball position.  If you don't have the foundations sorted, the structure you build on top will fall down!!!

Chuck has set out a very clear path down which to walk to get to where you want to be.  Please, please don't take short cuts!  It takes 4 - 5000 repetitions of a movement to learn it and master it. That's a minimum of 100 reps per day for a month and a half.  It takes time to do this properly.

I know it can be frustrating and boring to work on simple things like ball position and posture and weight shift, but these are the areas where most golfers would benefit the most.  The stuff that comes after this in many cases won't work if these areas aren't functioning.

If anyone wants some reading, get hold of a copy of Mastery, by George Leonard.  It is the perfect companion guide to help you on your journey, especially when times get hard.

Good luck and keep at it.  The results WILL be worth it!

Notes are in guides experience only at this time.
 
Sam, so true my friend, so true. This is exactly what we're focusing on with the videos to make sure they are presented in such a way that everyone works through them ni the proper sequence.

I have been a member over a year now and have waited like a child at Christmas for each new video. Besides the content of the videos I believe this is the best improvement to the site
Sam is correct that the temptation is to watch the sexy new video at the expense of fundamentals. In pilot training the Navy drilled fundamentals before we could even crank an engine. This is as close as web based teaching gets to self instruction.
It would be awesome if the next version had some sort of test before you could move to the next level - like an online video review of your performing the drills and movements of that level or a log book that you recorded the number of reps performed each day on each drill

Chuck you are doing a great job and I imagine it is time consuming and frustrating at times but know that we out here in cyber land appreciate your dedication

Good luck with Christina maybe she will replace Annika and Lorena

Great work Chuck. Complete set of instructions. This is like distance learning program. I wish I have found your site two years ago. I have thrown away so many hours of hard working but in wrong directions. But at least I know what mistakes I have been doing. Maybe in the future we will be able to have some live supervisor options with more and more RST instructors coming out. After having lessons with different pros this is really revelation. I start to enjoy the game again. Most of pros should join this site and the learning process will be much more successful. But they won’t be able to sell so many pointless hours anymore. LOL

My wife and I are both watching the lessons in the new format.  The organization is much improved and we all appreciate the hard work Chuck and the staff have put into this project.  

Salesh's comments are spot on ... working hard but in the wrong directions ... a revelation ... start to enjoy the game again ... more teaching pros should join.

Amazing how little the average PGA pro at the local CC knows about the golf swing.  In my experiences, it was one of two things -- swing like the teaching pro or swing using time-tested PGA fundamentals (what would those be?).  Seems to be an obsession with club positions without the explanation of how to get there properly from address to completion of the swing.

Rivers -- Do Navy pilots fly boats with wings or is that a submarine?  Just kidding!  Slingin' some AF pilot  mud at you!

Y'all have a good weekend.
