Hinge & Hold With Putter
For golfers that struggle with a strong "flip" pattern, a flat flaced club (putter) can be a great tool for feeling the proper wrist and body angles at impact. To do so, we want to monitor the relationship of the clubhead and our body as we move through the release. Specifically, we want to look at the sternum's position relative to the clubhead and hands. In an early release pattern, the clubhead will pass the hands and sternum quickly after impact. In a "tour release", the sternum and hands will lead the clubhead into impact, improving both low-point control and shaft lean. Ultimately, we want to hit a few putts while focusing on the precision and timing of the body and arms; this should provide a feel that can be used to progress into some full swings and hopefully break the pattern of a flip-style release.
