Fast Arms


You have always had a nice release but suddenly you are not feeling a natural release.


You might be whipping your upper body through the shot too aggressively or allowing the upper body to initiate the downswing.


Relax and lighten your grip a little; this will allow you to release the club just a split second before impact for extra power. Focus on starting the downswing with your lower body. As you are shifting your body weight forward, remember to keep your trailing shoulder back. Avoid trying to swing your arms too fast; if you do, you will release your arms too early in the downswing and hook the ball.
