    Pretty sure that I am letting go at the top as you demo, cause I can see my driver in my backswing at the top. Making me a bit less consistent off the tee usually to the left as I am probably regripping at the top? This will definitely be my next drill to master. I did get out and while I was striking the ball well, didn’t score great. Not really disappointed as I know this is going to come around. Will let you know when I hit or break 75. Looking forward to hitting another pile soon.

  2. The wrists but the hands also have to be loose ,that’s certain:the difficult part of it is to have the left pinkie and the two adjacent fingers to the pinkie loose at the same time ,without letting go of the handle at the top of the backswing and then have to re-hinge and therefore drop the tee…
    If the tee doesn’t drop going back ,there’s few chances it will in the throughswing as the centrifugal force obliges you to hold onto the handle to avoid the club flying away wild !

      Not sure about a lose grip. Mine certainly isn’t loose. My grip is secure my wrists are loose.

  3. Paul ,Your fingers are certainly rather loose at the outset of the swing :I don’t see how you can keep your wrists loose without also loosening the fingers (Or keep them relaxed ,not tight )at the same time .
    That’s at least what happens to me .
    Maybe JEREMY KLINKHAMER ,the specialist on the subject , could elaborate on the subject !

  4. Paul ,Just an after thought :to keep arms wrists and fingers loose before starting the backswing , I “Waggle like a wet mop ” the right and left arm before taking my grip on the handle

      Although the fingers may be loose they are not coming off the club or separating from the grip in any way.

    Hi paul

    Recently my friend returned from a vist to the states and bought back with him a swing speed radar witch we have been playing around with the last week
    What we found that his normal swing speed going 100percent was about 106 mph but when he used his body and had a slow swing it read around 95 to 100 but the ball some how travels further
    Why is this?
    Is it smash factor?
    Many thanks.

      There are many factors that contribute to distance. I would think in this case is more direct contact on the ball. If you don’t make direct contact you would lose power with a faster swing.

  6. Paul,

    Am I understanding that there is not a conscious effort to swing the arms and release the hands? The release of the hands and roll over of the wrist happens due to the lower body initiating the swing and centrifugal force taking over?

    • Mike,

      But if someone cannot do that by turning their arms off they need to manually work on the correct positions and release. Once they get it then they turn them off.
