Solving The Early Release To Improve Your Golf Strike (Video)

So if you still feel like you’re toeing the golf ball and you’ve understood now that the early release, the casting of the golf club from the top is the main issue with the reason why you are toeing the ball. We can now start to look at some corrections around that problem and how we can stop that happening. So once I’ve got myself set up and I’m pointing down my intended target line, I swing to the top, but I feel the club go this way. One of the main causes of the issue there is bad sequencing, incorrectly sequencing the downswing. So from the top we are turning the shoulders too early and we are throwing the hands and arms too early. That takes the club in an early release position outside the line which results then in pulling back across the ball and hitting the toe side. We would be better suited as golfers to sequencing back to starting from the lower half. So from the top of the swing, the lower half needs to work out towards the left side bringing the hands and arms down creating some lag instead of the early release and then hitting down on the back of the golf ball, trying to hit the center of the club to the middle of the ball rather than casting, throwing and then pulling back across the golf ball and then out swing in fashion.

So the early release is one of the major causes of the toeing of the golf ball and that’s caused by bad sequencing. Another area that you might consider to stop the early release is just weaken the grip slightly. If you feel like you’ve got three of four nickels on the right hand – sorry on the left hand showing and the right hand that sits underneath the club, generally we get to the top, the hands have too much influence, too much power and they throw the club off the top and then end up pulling back inside. So the pull grip position, the weakening of the grip can actually help improve that position, that casting action from the top. So it’s a slightly weaker grip position. It’s a better sequencing of the downswing and it’s making sure that the body doesn’t stand up in the downswing, should help us into a better position for impact, stay down and extend through, and that should see a result in less toe shots and better ball striking in your golf.
