Setting Up For A Proper Golf Swing Release (Video)

So if we understand the importance of releasing the golf club at the right time through impact, we need to make sure there’s nothing that’s going to get in the way of that release. We need to make sure it’s an efficient possible as – a movement that’s as efficient as possible and as consistent as possible. And actually getting the right address position will help with that. Now the grip is probably one of the most important factors in this set up position, you can have two knuckles on the back of the left hand that we can see, the V points up to the right shoulder, and then the right hand sits in there, sits into a nice neutral position with the V now pointing up towards the chin. And particularly important with that right hand is the grip pressure, we don’t want to really feel like were hanging on to that golf club too much. If the right hand has too much pressure, or the right hand is too far underneath, we’ve got problems. The right hand having too much grip pressure, might cause the right hand to not release at all. It will hang on to the golf club too much ,we wont be releasing the golf club at the right point, that will leave the face more out to the right hand side causing a few concerns with the ball curving from left to right.

Likewise, if the grip gets too strong and starts to come around this way, and remember strong isn’t how tightly you’re holding it, strong is the position that’s too far round to the right during the set up. In this position, the right hand is going to fire too early more often than not. That’s going to shut the face down, that’s going to whip the golf ball down the left hand side. And a few golfers are so scared of that right hand turning over, they actually don’t release the right hand at all and just push it underneath the left hand which again opens the face, a very weak action. But an incorrect position or incorrect grip pressure of the right hand is quite a big concern; it’s not going to allow the club to release at the right time. So keep your grip pressure relaxed maybe on a three out of ten scale, and then keep your grip, so the right hand sits on top, the V pointing at the chin rather than the V getting underneath, which points over to your right shoulder too strong and it whips it down the left hand side. Control your right hand at set up to give your right hand the best chance during the releasing process of your down swing.
