Hogan Open Right Thumb
This Ben Hogan inspired drill is excellent for players who struggle with the patterning of the trail arm. Specifically, it is useful for golfers who tend to apply too much pressure with the thumb and "webbing" of the trail hand. This leads to a near "baseball" style grip that can produce a strong club flip at impact, creating issues with contact and start-line.
To alleviate these symptoms, a simple "thumbs off" approach is all that is needed; this will help players load the correct pressure points of the trail hand and hopefully, encourage a "quieter" & more efficient release of the club.
