One of the most common swing faults is hitting from the top, or casting, instead of delaying the release of the club into the shot. Releasing the club too early slows down the body, which in turn slows down club head speed, not to mention robs the golfer of power and consistency. THE # 1 CAUSE of an early release is the hands, arms, and shoulders starting down first, instead of beginning the downswing with the LOWER BODY!
Not leading the downswing with the lower body also retards the body of a proper weight shift and rotation. At impact, we want to be able to see those two cheeks and weight off of the right foot, which is a sure sign the body has moved into the ball with power!
