Before I get to the drill…as I practice/play I am going to post some of my thoughts and feels hoping some of you may be able to get something out of it…or maybe you just might find it interesting.
If I implement a feel and it ends up being a temporary bandaid, I will talk about that as well.
Of course if I put up a low round, I will brag about it 🙂 and if I put a nasty one on the board, I will also let you guys have at me for being a chop…actually a duck. First stage of Open Qualifying is May 11th. I am playing Ironwood CC in Palm Desert. I have made it there twice before and missed by one or two the other time, so I have had success there.
It will be only my second competitive round since September of 2008.
On to the drill. Basically, you just hit a shot one handed, with the dominant hand. Right hand for a righty and left hand for a lefty. You can’t force the lag during this drill, because with only one hand on the club, it is difficult to get the leverage.
If you are a chucker/caster/thrower…START WITH VERY SHORT SWINGS AND DON’T SWING TOO HARD.
You don’t want to swing too hard if you are casting as it will put a lot of pressure on your right wrist.
For you tennis players, it will feel just like hitting a top spin forehand…coincidentally, not unlike a proper golf swing release. 😀
This is a feedback drill that will tell you how off your release is and what a proper one feels like. Hard to fake it one handed.
