Release For Speed - RST Student Success
In this video, I'll show you how we took playing professional Cory Cooper's ball striking and made it more crisp as he prepares for the Sanderson Farms PGA Tour event next year. He qualified for the event by winning the Louisiana PGA Section event that exempt him into the 2015 PGA Tour event. To better prepare Cory for the demands of PGA Tour greens, we needed to shallow out his angle of attack to help him hit the ball higher. To do this, we had to help him learn the proper amount of lag of solid ball striking because he simply had TOO MUCH lag. I am going to show you how to get rid of excess lag and release the club efficiently for a boost in clubhead speed. I am also going to show you how releasing the club properly will help you gain more control over your ball flight and increase your consistency and accuracy.
