L to I - Three Quarter Swing Release Training

"L to L" swings can over emphasize the wrist hinge in the follow through (radial deviation) an important component of a good swing is unhinging through the release and targeting a late rehinging. I find it much better for proper wrist mechanics to work on the follow through position as opposed to the "L" position. Especially when it comes to the longer clubs like the driver.

Strill is L to I. So I had a question about the famous L to L swing. So a lot of

00:00:08,000 --> 00:00:16,000
kind of instructors will start you with this kind of L to L look. And you'll notice

00:00:16,000 --> 00:00:20,000
that I don't have one of these on the site. I'm not a huge fan of it because I think

00:00:20,000 --> 00:00:27,000
it emphasizes the rehing on the on the follow-through. And I tend to see on 3D that a

00:00:27,000 --> 00:00:34,000
lot of amateur golfers start rehinging well before torporos, especially with the

00:00:34,000 --> 00:00:40,000
driver or the longer clubs like the three would. So for the purpose of working past the

00:00:40,000 --> 00:00:45,000
release, so let's say we've done some 9 to 3 training and we've gotten good at going

00:00:45,000 --> 00:00:52,000
here. I like doing L to I or what I call chest height to waist height. So basically

00:00:52,000 --> 00:01:01,000
making a little bit more of a 3-quarter swing but still finishing in that good 9 to 3 finish.

00:01:01,000 --> 00:01:06,000
That arm extension wrist unhinging and staying wide on the follow-through I think is much

00:01:06,000 --> 00:01:15,000
more important than trying to emphasize this rehing on the follow-through. So when you're

00:01:15,000 --> 00:01:20,000
working on contacting you want to start bridging from your release drills a little

00:01:20,000 --> 00:01:26,000
bit closer to full swing. I'm fine with making a little bit longer back swing so getting

00:01:26,000 --> 00:01:36,000
that good kind of L look and feel. But on the way through I want to be able to still get

00:01:36,000 --> 00:01:41,000
that focus on that really good arm extension. You'll see that if you tend to kind of

00:01:41,000 --> 00:01:47,000
chicken wing or rehing you won't be able to stop in that follow-through position. So we'll

00:01:47,000 --> 00:01:52,000
call it kind of an eye because it's everything in a straight line like so. You won't be

00:01:52,000 --> 00:01:59,000
able to finish in that good straight line finish if you're rehing and kind of focusing

00:01:59,000 --> 00:02:04,000
on pulling in with the arms as opposed to letting you go out with the club. So we'll demonstrate

00:02:04,000 --> 00:02:14,000
L kind of like this and then wide in that follow-through.
