What you should do in the through-swing is release the club . That means the clubhead should move past your body and toward the target as the ball is struck.
Many amateur golfers struggle for years trying to learn how and when to release the club . A sound swing is characterized by release of the wrist hinge just past the point of impact as the club rotates. To achieve a proper release , you need a good grip, a good backswing and a good downswing.
That makes the swing plane way too flat and forces the player to re-route the club dramatically to even hit the ball. The wrists shouldn’t roll sideways. They hinge by moving up and down. Try this: Hold the club out in front of you , and hinge it upward as if you were going to tap your nose.
PHOTO PROVIDED In most cases, the butt of the club should point no more than one to two inches ahead of your belt buckle, more to the center is best. More golfers than not, have too much shaft lean at the address position. Leaning the shaft toward the target actually can cause a slice and a low trajectory.
Well, here’s the problem with swinging like this: If you don’t let the clubhead release naturally, you ‘re going to hit a lot of weak slices. The clubface will come into the ball too open, and you won’t transfer enough energy into the hit. Your wrists should be square to your target when the club meets the ball.
The Early Release is a down Swing Fault and is defined as and excessive loss of angle created with the club shaft and lead arm in the down swing. This is one of the most common Swing Faults and has a huge influence on contact and producing power to the golf ball. An open club face – This is the most common cause .
A lot of right – hand -dominant golfers do this, it causes the club moves quickly to the inside. From there, you have to lift it to get to the top, and that reduces body rotation and saps a lot of energy out of the swing . You lose all of that torque that’s produced when the upper body turns against a stable lower body.
As the swing develops, some players feel like they need to hurry all the way through to the end. When that feeling sets in, it’s likely that your hands will get involved and force the club to move quickly down toward impact. This hand action is what creates a flip , and you end up dragging the club through the ball.
