There are (3) different ways to open/close the clubface during the release. Specificially, golfers will use a combination of shaft rotation ("motorcycle"), a raising/lowing of the handle, and a linear movement of the handle forwards/backwards ("shaft lean"). Depending upon how efficiently they combine these moves and to what degree they employ them, you can get an overall view of a player's closing strategy and the inefficiencies/efficiencies in their game. Ultimately, it is important to know your own "default" pattern and how these (3) movements contribute to it, before making a plan for improvement. This will help you pick the right drills and concepts to work on and hopefully, speed up your progress.
