    I do the exact same thing – let the club go! I hate it. It causes me so many problems. The reason I let go is to try and keep my trailing right elbow loose in while hinging the writs and staying “whippy” with the arms turned off.

    I am struggling to connect the dots on how to grip the club with loose writs, elbows in, and arms turned off. I will look at your related drills, but this is my problem.

      I am holding on secure but my wrists are loose. Watch the tip below on how I got it.

      Secure Grip Loose Wrists:

      So do that constantly then for powerless arms you need to not hit or help the shot in the downswing with your arms. This only took me 3 practice swings to get this because I just told myself to stop trying to hit or help the shot with the arm. Instead, just let the club go wherever it wants. Your arms will not stay up there forever. So if you are not trying to hit you will hit.

      Do Not Disturb The Mass:

      So every night do the tee drill so you secure the hands and loosen the wrists. Then hit 2/3 distance shots until you take the “hit” out of you swing. Then, work on coiling and uncoiling as the power source.

  2. You nailed it. I did the tee drill in the office then went to the range swapping between the tee between the palm and grip and no-tee. Concentrating on hinging wrists and staying long to make the club “heavy” and preserving the natural momentum and club path on plane. It all works!.

    I was actually hitting easier while pulling and hooking balls. When i did not do it correctly, i would top the ball from pulling in arms to “hit” the ball or slice the ball because of not hinging and releasing.

    Awesome. Thank you.

    • Bret,

      It sure does. People get the false sense of loose. I am holding on tight but my wrists are loose. If you let go you will grab on tightening the wrists.

      Glad you got it. Keep doing it.

    besides tightening arms on down swing would this also cause bad impact because loose grip the club face can go anywhere?
