Golf Swing Speed Release Drill

This video is crucial for teaching you how to conserve energy in the early stages in the swing and then learning to unleash some serious speed with minimal effort through impact.

  • Speed is only needed at impact - speed generated at the top of the swing is wasted
  • For the drill, hold a club upside down in the right hand and use elevation, flexion, rotation to get to the top
  • Squat, bring the arm in and snap through impact to bring the club down
  • The right wrist maintains lag then snaps at the bottom
  • Stop & check position at impact - once that's correct, go ahead and complete the swing at speed
  • Listen to the club cutting through the air - you should hear speed through the impact position

Hello Gary. The lead arm/hand are in control. The control factor in the swing is through the lead side. Take a look at the Left Arm Downswing Drill and 5 Minutes to the Perfect Release to see how they work into the strike.

Hi Graig! For me as left hander the right hand is my weak hand and I miss control during this drill. Especially with the club upside down holding on to the thin section of the shaft. It moves in all directions during the swing. Would it be oke if I use a (short) shaft with grip on it but without head to carry out this drill? Thanks for helping!

Question: is there in the sequences of the 9-3 a point where the socalled straight line release comes in?
July 19, 2019
64x64
Chris (Certified RST Instructor)
Hi WJ, we do not teach the straight line release here at RST. So I am not really sure how to answer this. I will say this...we NEVER hit positions in the golf swing, we move through them. Sorry if that wasn't much help, but we just try to stay clear of some of the gray area instruction that's taught out there.

Does the shift forward in the downswing keep the shoulders back in the downswing? and at what point is one to begin the rotation of the shoulders in the downswing?
April 6, 2019
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Gary. Proper shifting (moving the lower half first) will help keep the shoulders passive. You should never try to activate the shoulders in the downswing to bring them into impact.

Chris I underatand the concept however I find myself still either spinning my shoulders from the top and/ or jerking my arms down from the inside vs allowing them to gravity drop from the top of the swing. What can I do to stop this. Real frustrating when I know the sequence but can't execute it !!

Hello Gary. Craig . How are you practicing it? Are you able to achieve in a mirror and then in smaller/slower 9 to 3 moves? The biggest mistake I see people make is a day of drills and then 100 range balls expecting it to be there. Lets decipher how you are attempting to put the move in play and go from there.

Gary
Chris not sure how to answer your question but i will try - Ok I use the takeaway,weight shift and shoulder blade glide to take the club - when I get it to the top I feel the weight transfer to the left side however I at times spin/rotate my shoulders creating a out to in path. I know I should keep my back towards the target while transferring my weight to the left keeping my shoulders at a 45 degree angle. It is around this time that I either rotate my shoulders and/ or pull my arms down aggressively vs allowing the left glute and torso pull the club through while remaining relaxed with my upper bidy including my arms. How do I simply allow my arms and shoulders relax and allow gravity to do its thing without panicing and rotating and pulling down with my arms?

Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Gary. It takes practice and working on it slowly. Take a look at Why Your Practice Swing and Real Swing Aren't the Same. My suggestion. Start with 9 to 3's. Work on smaller swings focusing on the body movements where you can control the movement and pace better. Gradually, make the swing longer while not losing the mechanics. It sounds to me that you need to slow down first until you can feel the movements and lack of shoulder spin before you add much pace and length to the move. Take a look at the 9 to 3 Drill.

Gary
Thought so - how many reps at slow speed do you think it takes to ingrain the correct move? And does the triangle at set which is in front of the torso at setup remain there during the swing because it appears tonme that everything falls apart when they leave the connection as it was at address. It looks to me the triangle stays in tact and in front of the torso during the 9-3 drill and the simple wrist cock is what creates the additional speed needed to hit the ball further. Should I work at keeping the triangle in front and use the wrist cock to generate more distance .
April 7, 2019
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Gary. The 9 to 3 isn't about power, but efficiency. You would need to keep the arms in front and add a little more lag for added power (9 to 3 Lag Building Drills). It takes a minimum of 100 perfect reos to create a pathway. 1000 to start getting proficient and 3000-5000 to master a movement. Create the pathway slowly at first and once you can repeat without much thinking start to ramp up the pace to normal speed. After you leave the takeaway the hands will cross centerline, but the arms will still remain in front of the chest.
April 7, 2019
64x64
Gary
Ok great - so are you saying that the triangle stays in front and the biceps stay connected to the chest in the same place as they were at setup? And if the hands cross center how is one to keep the triangle and biceps in the same place throughout the swing? This answer to me is critical Info
April 7, 2019
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Gary. Yes. There will be slight elevation, forearm rotation and wrist set. But, they will stay in front of the chest. As the trail arm folds the hands will cross centerline. The lead arm will have to come up slightly and rotate from the shoulder socket. As discussed in How to Keep the Left Arm Straight, or in the 5 Minutes to the Perfect Backswing Pitfalls. It's only a slight motion, but not enough to pull the arms behind the chest.
April 7, 2019
64x64
Gary
Ok thanks for staying with me here- so are you saying that on completion of the backswing the biceps remain against the pectorial muscles and the arms cross over by the right arm fold. I presume based on ones flexibility this remains true throughout the swing? Meaning the bicep pectorial connection - so if so the connection remains in the same place from setup to completion of the swing?
April 7, 2019
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Gary. As the lead arm comes up and rotates you won't be as connected as in setup. Due to the elevation and rotation of the arm. Hence, if you had a towel underneath the lead arm it would fall out. You will have some connection upper bicep and pectoral, but very minimal.
April 7, 2019

Gary
Ok so now how do I get myself to allow the arms to simply fall without feeling like I have to pull them down from the top of the backswing to impact ? What should it feel like from the top to impact?
April 7, 2019

Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Gary. Take a look at the Sequencing the Downswing - Dump truck and Drag racer and the Frisbee Drill. Feel is a little too subjective to teach. You need to get in front of a mirror, or camera a mimic the proper moves so you can start being aware of the feelings you need that create the proper motion. Most players however feel their back to the target almost all the way into impact as their lead side shifts and posts. Like a chest closed sensation.
April 7, 2019
64x64
Gary
Wow really chest closed - when I do this I never feel like I am going to get the club square at impact? This is where I panic and pull the arms down while spinning the shoulders and flipping the club. This must he a sequence issue or simply so foreign that I feel I have to do these things
April 7, 2019
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Gary. Keeping the chest off in the downswing is what allows the closing of the face. If the chest spins it actually delays the release of the club. Take a look at 9 Days to Amazing Ball Striking Day 1. Chest spinning is a death move to square the face. That's why most feel it almost stays closed.
April 7, 2019

Agree with the death move know it well!! Do you suggest doing the 9 day ball striking videos?

At what point in the downswing does the club head turn over? At what point does the right shoulder begin its rotation towards the target in the downswing? I really struggle with being patient in the downswing and would like to know how do I stay patient and allow the shoulders to delay from spinning out from the top of the swing?
April 6, 2019

Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Gary. The club is always rotating. The vast majority or rate increases around the trail thigh. The shoulders will be pulled in the downswing by the lower lead side and core. The trail shoulder won't stay back unless you do an unorthodox method to keep it from moving. For example, about halfway down the hips will be square and shoulders about 45 degrees closed towards the target. They will move, but they don't actively get moved through the positions coming down. I would practice Step 2 - Core Rotation combined with Keep the Rear Shoulder Back. You will start to feel how the shoulders get moved in the downswing as a byproduct. Shift would weight and use the core to square the hips. During the move feel your back staying towards the target. The feeling will be that they don't move even though they will.
April 6, 2019
64x64
Gary
1. Ok you mention the club is always rotating - is that created by a consciuos rotation of the arms? 2. Vast majority of rotation - is that due to arm or core rotation at the trail thigh? I have no idea whether I should actively rotate my arms or is it done by the rotation of the body? 3. I dont feel teh core at all in the swing - any drill to get the feeling of moving the club with the core? 4. Does the core take the club back and down in the swing? What I feel is the lats back and down typically creating a turn with the upper body on the back and downswing Thank you
April 6, 2019
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Gary. The club is rotating because it is designed to rotate. The release of the club will be passive and not active. Some players have to train the release and rotation of the face at various points in the swing to remove older movement patterns that prohibited proper rotation. The post up will trigger the release. The fact that the shoulders aren't spinning will allow the club to rotate over (Arms vs Body Release and Flip vs Release Videos). Step 2, Step 3 and Step 4 Drills are designed to help you feel the body moving the arms and club. Weight shift, rotation, vertical arm movement and momentum will take the club up (My Golf Backswing Secrets and the 4 Square Drill). Weight shift and the core will bring the club down. The lead lat will aid with the core on getting the arms in front and into impact. The trail lat will pull the shoulders back which is what you are more than likely feeling. Feeling the trail lat pull you in the backswing is correct (Shoulder Blade Glide Video).

October 1, 2018
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Robert. You are still shifting weight first in the drill. If you are shifting to your lead side and the falling back. It sounds like you are adding excessive secondary axis tilt.

Robert
Can you explain secondary axis tilt and how to correct?
October 2, 2018
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Robert. Take a look at the Level Shoulders Drill and Preventing Hip Pain Video. Secondary axis tilt is the axis tilt added in the downswing. You will have a slight increase in this because of weight shifting to the lead side. However, you can get excessive if you combine with push, or improper shifting which the above videos will talk about.

Hello John. The trail side will add speed. It is vital that the lead side is trained first though. We stick primarily with lead hand only drills because the vast majority of golfers tend to already use the trail too much.

Hi Craig, I would like some clarification. Chuck mentions "The sequence is sitting, bringing the arm in, then snapping the wrist as you come through impact". My question is how to bring down the arm with the pulling of the torso. And what are my knees and my hip doing this phase. The point is that at the end of the sitting, the knees are parallel to the target line and the club shaft is perpendicular to the ground with the hands more or less at chest hight. I am confused as what the knees and the hips are doing after the sitting as from I see from the pros is that when they are releasing the lower body is hardly moving it is already in position. Thanks, Marc
September 30, 2018
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Marc. The lead lat will aid in pulling the arms in front. As you post and your hips start to clear with the torso rotation the lead lat will perform it's function. Your lead leg will be straightening and hips opening. After sitting to the squat to square position or halfway mark. The post up is what triggers the release and brings you into impact.

Hey Craig Any truth to the concept of pulling the release with the left hand after weight shift? Starting to find that the release should pull the shoulders as they rotate to the target. The speed seems to start better before impact when I do nothing with shoulders (keep back to target) and pull the left wrist forearm down and start the forearm release roll over with the left primarily. I don't like the right arm explanation in this video because it makes the release a right arm dominant push. Similar to the takeaway where we are told not to push back with the left arm. 9 to 3 drill is helping me start the release with my back to the target and not using the shoulders (rectangle) to power the release. Really getting the release to take over sooner. All the lag needed seems to be the consequence of good weight shift/ pulling the obliques from just above the left hip and then pulling the left arm through release to release lag.
April 15, 2016
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Lance. There is some truth to the statement. Work on the Left Hand Release Drill Video. Let the shoulders rotate as consequence of good lead side shift, oblique pull and lead arm pull/release. Don't restrict the shoulders, but passive enough to allow them to work.

Hi. I am confused with right hand and wrist angle during downswing. Please clarify whether my understanding is correct. Question 1. Is my right hand(wrist) is rotated a little during downswing so the logo of my glove face front when it is front of my right thigh? Question 2. Should I intentionally maintain the angle of right wrist during downswing and release it when it reach right thigh? If I do not intentional maintain the angle of right wrist, I lose lag before reaching my right thigh. Some video says that I should keep the wrist soft, and some say I have to use right hand to create speed. Question 3. When downswing, should I let the gravity to do the job or is there any pulling involved?
March 6, 2016
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello So Chul. (For right handed player). When the glove logo on the lead hand is in front of the trail thigh. The glove logo will be facing forward out in front of you. The trail wrist will help you maintain angle in the downswing (Step By Step Right Arm Drills and Key to Creating Lag). Use the trail hand to help maintain angle. It can add speed, but very over used by most players. Take a look at the Weight Shift Video Part 1 to see shifting and gravity effect.

Can you please clarify the snapping of the right wrist at impact with the knuckles down drill with the left wrist. How do they work together, is it a snap of the right wrist ( like snapping a whip) with a roll of the left wrist and I assume you are talking about the wrists not the hands? Thanks
October 23, 2015
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Anthony. Like snapping a whip. With the knuckles down you might retain a little more hinge in the trail wrist (Step by Step Right Arm Drills) because you are trying to de-loft the club. More for flight and compression purposes than massive speed. But, it will feel like a whipping motion and following the lead wrist release.

Further comments to my post below With both hands on the club and after watching the knuckles down and left arm in the golf swing videos I have a difficult time getting the left arm to turn the wrist and forearm without the right hand trying to take over and creating a flipping motion. I am not sure if my upper body is racing ahead of the arms and creating this flip. I have tried all the left arm drills and all feel quite clumsy. I consider myself a good athlete with good hand eye coordination.

Hello Gary. Work on the Perfect Impact Part 1. it is common for our non-dominant hand to feel clumsy. It does take some work and getting used to. Also, it sounds like you just want the right to create power. You want speed not power. Take a look at the Sledgehammer Video.

Question - I can do this drill all day long and generate a ton of speed, the challenge I have is when I put my left hand on the club I don't feel it anymore?? Its frustrating because I know this is where the speed is generated but don't feel it with the hand on it. In fact when I do it with the right hand only I can really feel the lag and the club head really trails the hands properly until the release at the bottom. Why do I not feel it with the left hand on it? Let me explain - I am right handed - I bat and play hockey left handed - is that unusual ? and is the reason I may not be feeling the lag and release with both hands on the club? Pretty frustrated here. Note : when I try the left hand release drill I don't feel the release and feel quite weak ?? Help:( Gary
October 22, 2015

Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Gary. Have you tried the Frisbee Drill to exaggerate the Lag and Angle with the left arm? When you add both hands your left hand isn't your dominant. So, it will feel like it is weaker. The key is to transfer speed to the head. Not feel just the speed in the hands. The release of the angle properly. I would experiment with the Frisbee Drill and some Lag and Speed Drills.

Craig will the squat drill help me stay in the shot longer and stop me from spinning out? I sometimes have a tendency to get lazy and pull up out of the shot by getting stuck and the arms lagging behind the lower and upper body. When I get lazy i will be to out front of the shot and flip the hands in a cup motion with the right hand taking over. This will create a big bloxk or pull. Being big and strong is not good in this scenario as the ball leaves the playing field more often than not especially with the driver. It seems that squatting into the dowswing may help me stay in the shot longer and keep my shoulders from spinning out.?

Recommend you relook the use of the term speed (velocity) in this video. The ideal swing would have the club head moving at max speed/velocity just before and then thru impact....or even having the club head "accelerating" (increasing speed/velocity) thru impact area. In the video Chuck talks about "wasting speed" by casting the club head early in the downswing. Not sure what Chuck really means by "wasting speed". The downswing takes less than .5 seconds to execute. So I am not sure there is sufficient time for the "early casting golfer/club head" to waste any speed he/she has attained.
July 18, 2015
64x64
Chris (Certified RST Instructor)
Hey Matthew -- We want the clubhead to be at maximum speed at impact. Newton's third law of motion is naturally applied to collisions between two objects. In a collision between two objects, both objects experience forces that are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction. Such forces often cause one object to speed up (gain momentum) and the other object to slow down (lose momentum). I am not sure I remember the exact % amount of loss from the club but I know it is substantial. From the top of the swing if you begin to throw the club, you are causing yourself to lose the precious angle for lag regardless how fast the downswing is happening. If the club head is being thrown away, then not only are you costing yourself a chance to lose speed for the release, you run the risk of the clubhead passing your hands before impact and losing any sort of compression on the golf ball. Tour players with speed the golf club up (6 iron) from 24-24 mph, all the way up to 96mph, 3 feet prior to the golf ball.
July 19, 2015

Matthew
Chris - Thanks for the response but I think you missed my point. Rewatch Chuck's video. He talks about the "earlier caster/thrower" WASTING SPEED. Not sure that WASTING really occurs because there isn't enough time in the DS for any significant WASTING of any attained SPEED. The key to attaining max speed... at the right time...is proper sequencing of efforts/forces and properly leveraging those forces. The earlier caster/thrower DOES NOT/IS NOT able to achieve max speed...at the right time....because he missequencies efforts/forces and this missequencing does not allow him to ever ACHIEVE the speeds of a swinger who properly sequences and leverages efforts/forces in the golf swing. I don't think the earlier caster/thrower ever ACHIEVES his max speed...versus the earlier caster/thrower WASTING speed.

Thanks Craig, that really helped. One other question, I was practicing yesterday and I notice in my release, if my right arm stays under my left arm it helps me to stop using my right side and helps me stall the body and stop excess body rotation. Is this the correct feeling in the release which will also help stop the trail side push.
April 8, 2015

Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Anthony. To an extent the trail arm will stay under the lead arm. However, don't try and over do leaving the trail arm under or you might train a stuck position. Let it relax and kinda follow the flow.

Hello Anthony. It is more important to get the lead arm and side trained properly. Don't worry about adding the trail side until you can master turning off the trail side push that leads to over the top.

Hello Frank. Yes, for the right handed player the left arm will dominate the majority of the downswing. However, some players don't use the right arm correctly at all. And, when mastered you can learn to add a little right hand in there for more speed at impact. This drill helps you focus on speed delivery at the proper time.

What should my head do during the release and follow through? During practice on full swings I sometimes feel strain in my neck area when my shoulders and torso are whipping around during the release & follow through. I think its because the release motion is so different from what I used to do and now I don't know what position my head should be in to avoid strain.
December 3, 2014
64x64
R.J. (Certified RST Instructor)
Mike, Your head is the last thing you should burden yourself with thinking about during your golf swing. You should check your stance from the down the line setup position and make sure that your neck isn't dropping down so that you can see the ball. There should be a straight line between the ear hole, shoulders and hip joint in the stance, which will ensure that your neck and back will be flat at address. If you're not flat at address, then you definitely won't be at impact, then your neck might be subject to being in a position where it could be injured. It's uncommon to have neck pain in the golf swing so if you are having troubles, there is a misstep in there somewhere that is causing the neck to come into play during impact. To answer the other half of your question, the head should be pulled up by the momentum of the club head whipping through impact and lifting in the follow through. Until that time, the head should be pointed at the original ball position. R.J.

I am currently working on belt buckle & level shoulder drill, hitting the ball decently however can't seem to get away from a soft draw, this makes it really tough on dog leg right & any pin that's on the right side. I found myself pulling up pretty hard to keep ball on line or doing the Gary Player walk thru finish to keep them not going too far left. Really did not want to move the ball back to middle of stand for the quick fix. I am wondering if properly release the club head will fix this?

Properly releasing the club head will help. The better the release. The straighter the flight. Use the 5 Minutes to the Perfect Release to nail it down. Take a look at the 9 Days to Amazing Ball Striking Videos (Bonus Series). Learn how to control your starting line and fade. More left hand control and knowledge. Will help with the confidence on different shaped holes.

Hello SUNGJUN. There are sometimes exceptions when using the driver for max distance and launch. However, relatively the same for all.

Am I correct in assuming that momentum is pulling us through, post impact? This would also be true during a real swing( not a drill?)

You are correct. Momentum will be pulling you through after impact. In the real swing as well.

I am assuming for this drill I should also attempt to keep the shoulders parallel to the target line. Is that correct? I am a spinner so it is important for me to get this right.

Correct. Try and feel that the shoulders don't over rotate and rip open to soon at impact. And let that baby release!

Thisgolf swing release drill teaches you the difference between speed and power. The release of the golf club is the key to speed and this drill teaches you how to release for maximum speed with minimal effort, but also how to time the release at the right part of the golf swing.
