Impact Position and Release

Fri, 12/06/2013 - 12:00 -- Don Trahan

Today's daily video topic comes to us from Louie Kish. He has been using the Peak Performance Golf Swing for 3 years and has been very pleased with his results. The only thing he can't quite figure out is how to stop releasing the club early.

He's also experiencing some soreness in his triceps if he practices skipping the rock too much. You shouldn't feel any sort of pain with this swing, so I'm going to go through all the possible solutions for Louie's issues in today's video.

Hi Surge,

Been going on 3 years with your swing and playing very well, thank you. I still cannot stop an early release/cast. I do okay with in the mitt and up the tree and I think my palms are perpendicular at the impact position, but feel that skipping a rock should get my elbow to delay its release a bit longer. Since you prescribe all these swing feelings, can you do a daily tying the 3 together? Does that feeling mean that your swing is more right armed powered? If I overdue that skipping rock, my triceps seem to get sore. 


Your arm swing is very important. Where they are at impact and your follow through will determine which way the ball goes. Check out the video for some helpful visual guides that will get you back on the right path.

Keep it vertical!

Excellent video and right on the money today Surge. I had a sore bicept and right elbow and went with the skipping a rock feel. Pure genius Surge! High, straight, and pain free. Thank you!

There is a lot of right arm involved in this swing. Thanks for the reminder that it is better to think of the action as a snap up rather than a snap down, so that we can get a natural rather than a forced extension.
