WHAT IS EARLY RELEASE?
Early Release, or Casting, refers to any premature release of the wrist angles during the downswing. The angle loss can result in a weakened impact position with the lead wrist being cupped at the ball strike, often called Scooping. This adds loft to the face of the club, and as a result, we see a loss of power and consistency. Early release is when the clubhead and lead forearm are in a straight line prior to making contact with the ball. At impact, we should see the shaft leaning slightly toward the target. This helps to de-loft the club and creates a more powerful impact position.
