Video Golf Tip | Release Through The Swing

Hello, I am Glen Farnsworth, Master Instructor for Jim McLean at the Doral Golf Resort and Spa. Many of the students that come to our golf school we see something in common. They tend to hang back on their right leg, trying to help or scoop the golf ball in the air. When you do this you can not strike the golf ball powerfully or accurately. The drill I have for you today is to help you to get your right side to release to, through and past the golf ball. Simply get into your set up, take your normal backswing, and from the top of your swing just feel a little footwork and let the club zip through there, then follow it with your right side. So we call this the Right Side Step Drill. I would like to demonstrate this for you, when you try it at home work off of a tee with maybe a six or 7-iron, and also remember whenever you do a drill do not go at it too hard. I hope this helps to lower your score.

Importance and Execution of Pitch Shots Pitching is the most important part of the golf swing, so practice it and not only will your short game improve but also your full swing
Find Your Correct Swing Plane Analyze your ball’s flight to determine if you have the correct swing plane
One-Plane Over-the-Top Cure If you commonly come over the top and slice the ball the one plane swing is a great solution because you are bent over more and naturally attack the ball from the inside.
