Monthly Golf Tips by the Mel Sole Golf School.

To hit the ball straight, you have to master “The Release.” The Release refers to the rotation of the hands through the hitting area. This rotation and release of the hands creates the correct spin on the golf ball and helps it fly straight. Unfortunately, poor command of this golf skill is the reason that most golfers slice the ball.

In this month’s video golf tip, I share the proper hand rotation and release technique and demonstrate a drill that will help you avoid pulling and hooking your shots. And how to counter the dreaded “chicken wing.”  Master The Release and Slice No More!

A Different Grip.

I want you to take your normal grip and then slide the club down so that the small finger of the lead hand is completely off the club.  As I mention in the video, this will feel weird at first.  But when you see the results, you’ll be amazed.

Rosemary’s Swing.

My wife Rosemary has always had a problem hitting the ball off to the right. So I used her as a model to show how effective this different grip really is!  

In earlier swings, Rosemary hit the ball with an open clubface. Halfway through the follow-through, the lower hand was still under the upper hand, preventing the toes of the club from passing the heel and thus squaring the clubface at impact!  After the grip change, the results were amazing!  The lower hand crossed over the upper hand with ease, and the shots started to fly straight down the driving range.

Practice with this grip and then go back to a regular grip on the golf course.  I think you will be pleased with the results.
