Hi this is Jeff Crittenden, I am a current teaching pro. I am a PGA member, I just won the 2017 world long drive master’s division, with a 383 yard drive.
In any sport you play distance is always good, same as golf. I want to talk a little bit about the hands releasing in the golf swing, it’s not a flip it’s a release. If I set up more up here like a baseball swing, my hands are going to what looks like open and close the club face. In actuality the hands are releasing due to the lag, it is very important to release the golf club as I hit it. We never want the club, if the club comes in square, we never want it staying square. This golf club has to turn as I hit the golf ball. As I hit it, it wants to turn over. That creates a straight if not a slight draw. As in any sport whether it is baseball, hands turn over, tennis, hands turn over. Guess what, golf is the same way. As I come in the hands will turn over as I hit it. It releases the golf club, takes all the stored-up energy and sends it to the golf ball, golf ball goes flying down the range. Thank you.
