And no its not about life other than golf which for some is more important than life make no jokes about it.
So I wont do it.
What’s notable is every tour pro has a compensation release action. None of them are actually releasing their club head fully.
One reason to the difference here is that the pivot is slightly different which allows us to release the wrists with a full release. A tour pro is often out of room at impact Like Tiger Woods is atm.
What we want is a motion that has as few compensations as possible that we are able to fire at the ball and swing freely without concerning us to get it right there. Problem for many amateurs are is they don’t know what a pro level impact feels like with its divot.
If you don’t then its likely you have a compensation as a swing and even if you do know your likely to re-route it like Jim Fyruk does or others do and even if all the back swings are different for most parts its just how those players learned to make the timing needed to get their body there properly. Its also why no tour pro is able to do 10 swings in a row with the same tempo.
Hans is able to do that.
Once you are stabilize the pivot, then the release fully your into doing something only one man was able to do trough history his name was Moe Norman. I know what people say in the single axis camp Moe was stated to belong to but he was accurate way before he was old and even if Hans looks different and hit a 6i as long Moe hit driver they do share the same similarities and consistency.
Kelvin study tour pros – I don’t, I find their swings flawed. It’s a power or accuracy leakage or something in between and they all try to hold back their actions to improve their game. It’s a good thing to study as understanding their swings also helps me build a better foundation and definition of these type of swing action.
I want Hans to be an animal out there, primitive if you like to fire it all if needed and sneak around if needed. The main reason is as long we have a full release and action that supports that then you have a wider margin for error and increased consistency and last I checked consistency beat talent. How good you are it wont matter as you slip up and you will slip up as a tour pro and a normal day your 8% dispersion is fine but if you meet someone who does 2-4% all day out your just not able to beat them a simple math thing.
Then its all about if you can putt consistently also and I built such also for Hans.
How it all will work?
I got no clue first time I am doing it.
80% or so of all tour pro use a strong grip, as their trying to balance their rotation with their shoulder moves. Hans kept his grip and just open the blade to compensate. It wont matter if he is able to do so with timing and consistency, it might be a need to tweak but will see about that. He needed to open the blade as he once in a while hit it left, it was not a path issue but a face issue. Open the blade worked so the new ball laws works.
Steve Pratt talks about this release a bit here.
You cant btw rotate the right forearm at impact if you do then your doing a Phil Mickelson move.
A full release then your right hand is going under like a police guy waving forward the cue. This allows you to work with the force momentum with the pivot to release fully. Its why Larry at age 67 will hit it longer than he ever did in his golfing career soon.
However the full release wont work with a tour pro pivot as you will hook it off the planet if you do.
A full release is as it sounds, your not holding back as tour pros does.
