Follow-Through – Does Your Hand Come Off?

By | on April 7, 2023 | 5 Comments |

In this tip I am talking about at the end of your golf swing, I see a lot of golfers have their bottom hand (right hand for a right handed golfer) comes off of the golf club. This is from the wrists being too tight. There will be no give in the wrists since they are tight and then the hand comes off of the club. This is a very common question that a lot of golfers ask me why this happens. So if this is you, and it very well could be, make sure you try this the next time you hit a golf ball.

    Paul, I am have been working on the method for over a year now, and have made considerable progress on it, however, at times even after checking my alignment, my full swing pitches and short pitches will end up around five to ten yards left of my target. Do you think that my wrists are too loose and might be flipping a bit? Sometimes opening the club face at address helps.

      I would check your shoulders. Open stance means open stance not open shoulders. You club will usually swing where your shoulders are aimed so check this first.

    Paul, thank you, this has helped me. It revealed that if unhinging happens in say in last 1 foot before impact, then rehingeing would happen in the 1 foot after impact (which is much sooner than what I was doing). Is this explanation on track, or not really?
