Lead Arm Throw Away - Ulnar Release Training

Lead arm throw away is an isolated look at the movement of the lead wrist. Instead of breaking the movement down into a series of moves, lead arm throw away is a good way to simply feel the movements happening in one fluid chunk.

This release drill is lead thumb throw away. So in the single arm releases I talk about

00:00:06,000 --> 00:00:12,000
feeling like that arm or the thumb kind of points away from you a little bit. This is

00:00:12,000 --> 00:00:16,000
just a good combo drill where you can focus on that. It's similar to the finger release

00:00:16,000 --> 00:00:21,000
that we do with the trailhand but this is focusing a little bit more on the lead hand.

00:00:21,000 --> 00:00:26,000
So I'm primarily going to do nine to three since this is a release concept and I'm

00:00:26,000 --> 00:00:33,000
going to focus on this feeling of I'm going to pretend your 30 degrees to my target line.

00:00:33,000 --> 00:00:38,000
Right? So I'm kind of aiming that way. I'm going to feel like my left thumb is pointing

00:00:38,000 --> 00:00:42,000
more or less out of the camera. Now if the camera was the target line that would mean I'm

00:00:42,000 --> 00:00:49,000
going to basically be pointing that out towards the bag kind of in that direction there.

00:00:49,000 --> 00:00:55,000
As opposed to golfers who tend to come over the top and then it would be pointing more

00:00:55,000 --> 00:01:01,000
high and more in this position. So it's going to point down and out kind of like so.

00:01:01,000 --> 00:01:06,000
Again, you can do this as nine to three drills just kind of feeling the club may

00:01:06,000 --> 00:01:11,000
contact with the ground ultimately put the ball there and let the ball get in the way.

00:01:11,000 --> 00:01:15,000
And then because these are nine to three and release style drills they should be

00:01:15,000 --> 00:01:20,000
short enough swings that you can check your follow through position. If with all the nine to

00:01:20,000 --> 00:01:24,000
three degrees if you have a hard time stopping here it usually means that what's happening

00:01:24,000 --> 00:01:29,000
is I'm bending my arms and my wrist and that's causing the club to get way up high

00:01:29,000 --> 00:01:34,000
as opposed to getting really good extension where the momentum is going more out and I'm able

00:01:34,000 --> 00:01:40,000
to stop it by the time I don't have to actually stop it. I'm able to control it by the time

00:01:40,000 --> 00:01:46,000
the club gets to about waist height. So it ends up looking kind of something like that

00:01:46,000 --> 00:01:54,000
and then I can take that feeling and move that on to full swings either again stopping

00:01:54,000 --> 00:02:01,000
at the nine to three or just going through that movement as I take my real stock full swing.
