From tee to green, there's lots of different ways
00:06
you can shave strokes off your handicap.
00:08
An easy one is with your driver.
00:10
We see a lot of people pull across their driver,
00:11
leave that club face open and hit the dreaded, wicked slice.
00:14
A different way to help you
00:16
get the feeling of releasing the golf club,
00:18
take your driver, cross-handed grip,
00:20
so the right hand's gonna be on the top,
00:21
the left hand's gonna be low.
00:23
And go ahead and make some practice swings that way.
00:24
You'll feel that right hand release a little bit more,
00:27
you'll feel that left wrist getting
00:29
a little bit more cuppy position.
00:30
But you'll start to get the club to release
00:32
and not hold on through impact.
00:34
It's gonna help you be able to turn the golf ball over,
00:37
and it's gonna help you get a little bit more
00:39
of that draw shape and not the big slice.
00:41
So the next time you go to the driving range,
00:43
cross-handed grip with the driver,
00:45
make some practice swings,
00:46
you'll start to see the club release.
