Video Golf Tip | Release Past the Ball

Hello, I am Glen Farnsworth, Master Instructor under Jim McLean at the Doral Golf Resort and Spa. We go out on the golf course in many of the schools with our students and one thing that I see in common is that they do not trust their golf swing. When this is happening to you, you will find that you will go to the top of the swing and tend to move past the golf ball because you fear letting the golf club swing freely through there. Remember, tension is the number one destroyer of the golf swing. This drill I have for you today is to help you to get the golf club to release past the golf ball without fear. If you can imagine the gap between your chin and your right shoulder, what we see is good players and good ball strikers do, is as they come down this gap closes. The right shoulder literally engages to the chin, thus bringing the head through. If we went the opposite you will notice that the head and shoulders start down and that gets the golf club on the outside. So remember, soft grip, get a nice set up, and on the downswing close the gap.
