Classic Swing Golf School – A tip from Ted

I hope you like this tip from Ted!

Separation and Release

Separation is the point in the swing that has the greatest influence on the spin you impart on the ball! There are 3 distinct release motions, and each dramatically changes the condition of the clubface at separation and, therefore, the flight of the ball.

The three release motions are:

1) Reverse Roll- this imparts the heavy fade to slice spin (keeps club face wide open)

2) Half Roll- this reflects a neutral or slight fade ball flight (this club face is only slightly open and beginning to square up.)

3) Full Roll- this is used for power and produces more of a draw spin to the ball (club face is closing)

The remainder of this tip will focus on the full roll technique because this is the finest way to transfer momentum for distance. If you have all that stored up energy in the downswing (lag), then deliver the punch with an optimum blow!

During the release interval, the forearms pronate to put the right palm in a downward facing position. A common phrase heard on our lesson tee box is, "let the forearms cross to show the ball who's the boss." The sensation is to feel your right palm facing towards the dirt immediately after impact. It must be noted that during the release interval in a full swing, the back of the left wrist should still be flat as it is rotating. Therefore, for power and consistency, the mandatory flat left wrist applies from impact all the way into the follow through.
