Somehow I've gotten to the point of a single digit handicap and the occasional 70s round with a ridiculously flat backswing that resulted in a closed clubface at the top. Not only was I often getting stuck, but over the years I've learned to hold off the release as a way of dealing with said closed clubface.
I've now fixed my backswing to get the hands above that right shoulder, and the result is the clubface squares itself naturally. My swing speed is up and I feel free......but playing last Sunday, I couldn't stop holding off the release. It meant a wide open clubface and a slice the likes I haven't had since I was a golfer trying to break 100 each time out. I still managed an 89 on an easy course (Pecan Valley Hills), but it felt like I shot a 105.
So I've been working on the release all week. It feels like I'm back to basics.
