The Release Overview
- Legs extend
- Arms extend
- Thorax (chest) continues rotating and sidebending
Remember, the release has happened AFTER transition, so keep in mind that by this point, your lowerbody has shifted almost half a pelvis width to the left and your arms have reached a narrow position in preparation for delivering speed. The left wrist will bow and the right wrist will cup. If you remember, this happened in the transition move and it serves the purpose of squaring the face and narrowing the arc. Now, we want to try and keep the clubface closing while we extend our arms through the ball. It is often helpful to make sure that the right arm does not get too straight before impact. Like a boxer throwing a punch, you want to hit THROUGH the target, and hit before it. The torso will continue rotating and side-bending through impact.
