Jordan Spieth - Brake and Release
Congrats to the young 21 year old sensation Jordan Spieth for winning his first major championship at the 2015 Masters. For years, we have heard TV commentators tell you to spin your body through the hitting area. Well, you can do that if you want to lose a lot of speed in your golf swing. In this video, I'll show you how to use your trail foot as a brake for the lower body, so that you can release the club with maximum speed where it counts most...impact! Stalling the body has been a controversial topic in the past and I'll show you just how the #2 player in the world does it pretty darn well.
- Load the trail side lower body up, early in the swing
- Start the downswing by squatting and shifting into the lead side
- Keep the trail foot down on the ground at impact to stall the body and release the club
