Video Golf Tip | The Powerline Wrists

Here is another Powerline idea, and it is how your wrists release in the golf swing. They release down, this way. There is a tremendous force going down like this that you can put tremendous speed on the golf club. What happens is that as the player comes in to impact the club stays down and low underneath the hands. I have rarely if ever heard any teacher talk about this, about how the club is released. From down the target line it looks like this, the club stays low to the ground and underneath the hands out to the half way through position. So many people come through and the club goes up in the air, or it releases left of their hands, something happens where the club is swung incorrectly with the wrists. The left wrist works this way, this way, this way and then breaks. Let me show you that from this view. This way, this way, down and then breaks back inward like this. It does not stay with the backside facing the ground like some people think. It certainly does not go through quickly and flip like so many people we work with tend to do. So how your hands work in the golf swing is tremendously important. How do you practice that? I think with a lot of small swings where you hit and keep your clubhead low, make your hips rise as you come through and keep the clubhead down. The legs and hips are coming up, the clubhead is going down. Now this is only for advanced players. This is pretty difficult stuff, tough to comprehend. If you have read a lot of Hogan's material, if you really have studied the golf swing you will understand what I meant. If you have not, take my word for it. This release is going to produce the most power and the most accuracy that you can every get.
