Tip of the Week: Learn to release the club correctly


The only player in the history of professional golf to be named Player of the Year on the (now) Web.com Tour, the PGA Tour and the Champions Tour is none other than Tom Lehman.

And the Minnesota native has sustained his success because he's one of the game's most consistent ball-strikers.

When it comes to hitting solid golf shots, it's imperative that you release the club through impact. That's a move, however, many average and high-handicap golfers struggle to achieve.

In this video segment, Lehman is going to explain what constitutes a proper release, and he'll give you a couple of simple drills that will help you feel what it's like to release the club correctly.

Try these drills the next time you practice, or even at home, and you'll start hitting more powerful, accurate shots.
