Many players I meet are confused about how to correctly release the golf club. The confusion begins with what is meant when players say “release the golf club” and secondly with how to achieve this move consistently and thus have control over ball flight.

Releasing the club refers to the unhinging of the wrists and thus squaring of the club face to hit the ball. Too often players believe they must use motions that involve excessive rotation of the hands and arms, as this will not only get the club aimed at the target at impact but will also add speed to the swing.

In this video I explain the body motions used to release the golf club and some drills you can use to better learn this motion in your own golf game. Master this part of your golf swing and you will have more control of your ball flight allowing you to produce more consistent golf shots.
