Learning how to release the left hand properly in the downswing is truly one of the key factors that separates the 80s, 90s and 100s shooters from those who can consistently shoot in the 70s. It is such a core fundamental that I make many of the tour pros I work with do nothing but hit balls with their left hand only for several weeks until it is properly trained. Their reward for this effort is flat, penetrating golf shots that can fly through any wind with minimal effort.

Video Practice Points
  • Many golfers release with just the right hand or right side of the body using much more effort, and often not releasing the club at all
  • Proper release can turn a weak, high ball flight into a low, penetrating one
  • For the drill, get into proper impact alignment and keep the left wrist flat
  • You should feel that the left hand stops at the seam in the left pant leg
  • Let the club release with its own momentum
  • Practice hitting chip shots with a short iron, bringing the right hand back in gradually

"I think he's come very close to a golf swing model that appears to be ideal...It's a big muscle, motor-driven swing that's repeatable...You don't have to be a super athlete."

-Dr. Jeffrey Broker, Assoc. Prof. in Biomechanics at University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and Former Senior Biomechanist for U.S. Olympics Committee

"I started playing at 70 years old, at the beginning I was scoring around 100 plus... Following the RST 5 Step System my scores are in the 80 to 86 range. I am out-hitting guys in their 40's and 50's, thanks to you and your system. My back or other muscles never ache, nor am I tired after 18 holes. I am so glad I found your technique and system."
