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.
