Shaft Parallel - Lag Checkpoint

This is a great drill for golfers that struggle with a flip style release and inconsistent low point control. By simply placing an alignment stick, pool noodle, or headcover, roughly in-line with the golf ball, you can create a visual checkpoint of where the hands need to be at shaft parallel during the release. Players who tend to stop short before this checkpoint will often lose power and struggle with heavy and/or thin shots. For maximum benefit, be sure to combine this with a few "Delivery And Go" or "Delivery/Release Pump" swings. This can be a challenging drill at first, so start slowly while focusing on good release mechanics and a solid pivot.
