Golf Swing Release Tips For Hitting The Golf Ball More Solidly

In order to have the proper golf swing release, it's important for your hands to leading the golf clubhead coming into impact. This will allow you to hit down on the golf ball which will make the ball go up in the air. From the top of the backswing, you want to swing down with the arms but maintain your wrist angle. The picture below demonstrates a correct golf swing release coming into hit the golf ball. There is a nice angle maintained between my right forearm and the club shaft. This is a power angle and will allow me to hit the ball longer and straighter.

An incorrect release on the other hand would have the wrists unhinged and the arms straight in line with the club. Releasing the wrists too early will cause the golf club head to come into the ball before the hands, leading to topped, fat, or thin shots. The contact with the golf ball will be much less solid and less consistent. Make sure to maintain a proper wrist angle coming into the golf ball on the downswing and at impact and you'll have more success with your golf swing.

Another golf release tip is to start by setting the wrists correctly in the backswing. When the wrists hinge as you swing the club back, you are able to form a good angle between your right forearm and and club shaft. This angle should then be maintain for as long as possible in the downswing. In order to have a good release, you'll have to set the wrists on the backswing to gain the power and control you'll need to hit the ball better at impact.
