Since 2004, RotarySwing.com has helped more than 70,207 golfers (check out the nice stuff they say), and Master Rotary Swing Tour Instructor Chuck Quinton has taught and done research on the golf swing for over 15 years.
We realize how important golf is to you, whether you play professionally, for bragging rights with your buddies, or just to spend time enjoying the outdoors with friends and family.
We also know that everyone struggles to get better. The golf swing's not rocket science, but sometimes it can feel that way.
Our philosophy is really quite simple: Provide thorough, yet easy-to-understand golf instruction based on facts rather than fads, gimmicks, opinions or guesswork.
And all of our facts tend to center on these three areas:
To make sure we give you nothing but facts and the latest research, we rely on experts like these...
Chuck Quinton, the founder of Rotary Swing Golf, has taught golf for 15 years and has been the Teaching Professional at Castle Pines Golf Club in Colorado. He also founded the Rotary Swing Golf Academy in Orlando, FL, where he teaches during the winter months.
He is the author of The Rotary Swing golf instruction book that has sold thousands of copies world wide as well as the instructional DVD series, Swing Plane Made Simple and Short Game Made Simple.
His instructional website, www.RotarySwing.com is one of the largest golf instruction sites on the internet today with over 8,000 visitors per day and is host to over 180 instructional videos that Quinton has created, as well as over 100 articles he has written.
He has been featured as a guest on ESPN Sports Radio numerous times, as well as numerous local radio shows around the country.
Apart from teaching full time, he also plays professionally and maintains a plus 4 handicap at Castle Pines Golf Club, former home of the PGA Tour's International event.
He has helped thousands of students of all abilities, including players on the PGA Tour, Nationwide Tour, European PGA Tour, LPGA Tour, Futures Tour, Hooters Tour, Gateway Tour, and numerous other mini-tours.
It is through his thousands of hours of tireless research, continuing instruction and hard work that this site, the original Rotary Swing and the Rotary Swing Tour (RST) have come about.
Dr. Broker is an Associate Professor in Biomechanics at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs. He received his Bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo in 1980, and a PhD in Biomechanics from UCLA in 1991. After obtaining his doctorate and prior to joining the University of Colorado he spent eight years working as a Senior Biomechanist with the United States Olympic Committee.
He continues to work closely with Olympic Sports. Current sport biomechanics projects include the analysis of long and triple jump technique for the US National Track & Field Team, assessment of visual processing, perception and reaction for softball pitchers, cycling biomechanics/aerodynamics, injury mechanisms, and volleyball serve optimization. He also collaborates with local medical organizations in the area of clinical orthopedic biomechanics, injury mechanisms and musculoskeletal injury management.
Dr. Broker’s courses at the University of Colorado include Biomechanics, Advanced Human Anatomy, Biomechanics of Musculoskeletal Injury, and Anatomy and Exercise Science: Applications to Golf. The Anatomy and Exercise Science with Applications to Golf course uniquely serves the University’s Professional Golf Management Program. These courses are taught at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Most recently, Dr. Broker has engaged in research exploring grip pressure patterns in golf, biomechanical and perceptual conflicts in putting, and pedometer- and GPS-based assessment of golf as a means of obtaining 10,000 steps per day. At the time of this writing, Dr. Broker has authored or coauthored over 35 peer reviewed articles and published abstracts. He has written or coauthored 13 book chapters or review articles. He is also on the Advisory or Science Boards of USA Track & Field, USA Cycling, USA Volleyball, and USA Triathlon.

I’m Chuck Quinton, founder of Rotary Swing Golf.
I’ve taught golfers of all levels for the past 15 years.
I now certify other instructors to teach my unique Rotary Swing Tour (RST) system.
I spent thousands of hours developing the RST with the help of biomechanists, orthopedists, learning experts and others.
RST has driven my handicap to 3 strokes better than scratch.
“Chuck Quinton is hands down the single best golf swing instructor in the industry.
As a former athlete I consider Chuck to be one of the great teachers in not just golf; but all of the sports world. He is an elite class all his own.
He has a passion for seeing his students improve and has helped me shave 12 strokes off my handicap in less than a year.”Ed Mylett
