Swinging a golf club is a lot like tossing a ball.
Can you toss a ball? Can you throw one underhand? If so, here’s a little drill for you.
The golfer can make 3 different motions in the downswing depending on what they are trying to do with the clubhead.
Your trail arm, hand, and clubhead can go to the right of the target line, at the target line, or left of the target line…for the right-handed player.
In addition to these exits, you will need to match up release types. Those are rolling and non-rolling. The two types of rolling releases are a full role and reverse role…technically there is also a half roll but I can those non-rolling. More on those later.
Now…IF you want to hands, and clubhead to exit to the right then you will need to use a rolling release. If you want it to exit left you again use a rolling release, but a different type of rolling.
And if you exit along the line, you would then use a non-rolling release.
