While I feel like I have made tremendous improvement in the last couple of weeks learning the rotary swing via a website for my irons I feel slightly at a loss for my woods.  This is my second year playing golf and I hit my irons pretty solid for a 2 yr. old....since I can now hit them consistently and at a target it is time to move to the big sticks.  I am of the school of thought that you should learn from the shortest club up and that's what I've done....so no driver yet till I know how to hit my woods.  But I feel the site doesn't really address woods as much as Irons and Drivers...they are as important - am I missing a video?  The driver is on a tee positioned very different than you would a wood and irons you hit them different as well I suppose?  I assume you wouldn't hit them with descending force as you would an iron & would your hands be leading the club @ impact as you would an iron?  But it's not as far to the left as a driver so does it have a small amount of forward lean?  Am I missing a video somewhere..and if not can Chuck create one just for woods in the future?
 
Thanks for any help anyone might offer.

You're 3 wood should be really no different than a 5 iron. I take a divot with it just like every other club in the bag. With the driver, it's almost the same, depending on how far you want to hit it. If you want to bomb it, look at that series, for a stock shot the release point should be the same so that would mean a very shallow angle of attack or even down slightly for control.

Thank you Chuck for that answer because I have got the same question as I am going through RST program. So as I understand the setup, stance width, ball position .... are the same for all clubs; except for the driver if I want to go for the greatest distance. Is this true also for the short irons and wedges? I want to ask you something. The RST section is for full swing only or am I wrong? For short game and putting I should look in other section I suppose. I am asking you this because I have read about and tried different pithc and chip shots (regarding setup, stance width, ball position) in two years since I have started with this beautiful game, but I would like to go only with your RST program. I am tired of so many tips and different advices from magazines and golf instructors. I saw that there is RS1, Rotary hitter, short game, driver section ... So what is the right path in RST program for learning different shots which are needed in course? For the end I should tell you that takeaway video is good that it has opened my eyes and persuaded  me to became member of your site.

salesh, RST should carry over to your short wedge shots as well, but at some point as we get closer to the green we transition over to the things you'll see in the short game section where more feel and touch is required, thus, more arms and hands.

Thank you for the answer. I will go through RST full shot first and later I will ask If there will be problem with short game.

Hi chuck- are you talking about more like 50 yd and in where you would use more arms and hands or using a 'modified' rst until greenside chips?

Wondering why I have trouble once in a while shanking a short pitch but almost never have trouble with full shots. Thanks for your help.
