Palm Up or Palm Down
A great visual to help with the proper movements of the trail arm is simply whether the palm faces up or down at impact and through the release. Golfers who tend to flip the club will have a palm position that faces upwards or is pointing more towards themselves. On the other hand, elite level golfers will keep the palm facing down and away even after the golf ball has left the face. Henrik Stenson, one of the best ball strikers in the entire world, has even been quoted as saying this is one of his "feels" when he plays his best. Overall, if you can incorporate this visual and feel into your game, you should be able to lessen any flipping of the clubface and build a more quiet, body driven release.
