Releasing the Club Correctly

In my opinion Releasing the Club Correctly  is one of the most badly taught parts of the golf swing today. Many instructional books will talk about a big rotation of the arms and golf club when all this leads to in my opinion is a flipping motion of the club leading to poor club face control through impact. If you do it this way you will not be releasing the Club Correctly.

How to release the club

The release of the club happens just before impact where the right elbow begins to fully extend leading into impact with the ball, in this position the club face is square to the target then from there the body rotates into a position where it is facing the target and the hands and club will overtake the body, but as far as a big rotation of the forearms is concerened, this doesn’t happen.
