Rick Z says:

Julian just wondering if you have any videos showing how to stop hooking the ball?

Lou Cunningham says:

This immediately reduced my tendency to swing 'over the top', releasing the clubhead encourages swinging from the inside…thanks!

John Schreiner says:

Julian, brilliant drill. I was having difficulty releasing the club, practiced this and today shot an 82! Effortless swing with consistent ball striking. Thanks.

Jardine Sydney says:

If you release properly should your clubface be toe up or half shut at post impact position.S/J.

stuart macaulay says:

My driving is only 200-220 metres. I try this to gain another 10-15 would not great

Sebastian Haase says:

Good one, Julian! Will try it today!

Jeffrey Fox says:

Us old guys, we need help turning,” Trevino says. “If I drop my right foot back, it gets my leg out of the way so I can turn more….I don’t hit it that far anymore, but when I get that hip back, it helps.”………quote above is from Lee Trevino which follows on from my own success doing this after trying the practice drill.

jcsoxx says:

Why would anybody swing like this? Is this how to hit a hook?

Tim Haines says:

Julian, Could you do a video on the proper way to use your putter as a plump bob to align puts?

A wonderful message from one of the members of Proper Golfing
Hi Julian! hope you’re doing well!

Glad to report I shot my age today for the first time ever — 72.

Long straight drives, solid irons, good bump and runs… and many good putts using the saw grip. Btw, an important contributor today was using la dance du golf in my pre-shot.. then identifying and keeping a specific tree or roof line in the distance in my minds eye prior to the swing. turn – weight shift- getting to the finish — Works great!
best wishes!

Your admiring student from Virginia,


Kevin Rastall says:

Just watched your video it was me to a tee forgive the pun will be trying out what you showed

John Wood says:

this is great – Thanks!

Chris Stevens says:

At what point during the downswing should hands/arms start to cross over for the release to happen? Thanks

Alan Goudie says:

Seems a good way to encourage a draw shot ,so when you return to a slightly closed position, i.e. right foot back a bit,
your drive on the golf course should be a draw. Julian makes it look easy but normal golfers MUST PRACTICE IT.
PROBABLY A LOT OF PRACTICE. Certainly for me. Thank you Julian.

Steve Horner says:

Hi Julian I'm Steve and have found you and Brian on YouTube I've been playing golf with jim venetos swing for about a year after i had to give up using the traditional swing when my back got so bad but now my left hip is bad so today i used yours and Brian's swing i like it no pain but did pull the ball left a few times is that because my body stops and my arms pull the ball left cheers Steve

Billytanner Tanner says:

Great tip especially for senior golfers trying to gain another 10 to 15 yards!

Liverpool 1977 says:

Definitely going to try this 👍🏌️‍♂️

swardmusic says:

This is quite old school ye? Compared to the holding offish keeping face square with spine method?

John Rider says:

The Australian Golf Doctor suggested this to stop slicing. As Julene

Bob J says:

Shot trace would help

RichardC says:

Some years ago I purchased a DVD by AJ Bonar explaining his theory of the “Little Bat”. It dealt with the release you are promoting which included a final turnover of the hand similar to that of a baseball swing. You are one of few instructors showing this. Excellent instruction as always.👍🇨🇦👨‍🦳

Pat A says:

Great drill. Love your lessons. You might want to check out Jim Flick Swing for a Lifetime. Has that drill and another sitting in a chair and hitting 3 wood to encourage release. The more things change the more they remain the same.

Jeffrey Fox says:

Might sound a bit thick but what is releasing the club head? I swing the club or iron and hit the ball.. Is this why I don't hit the driver far and use my 3 hybrid instead?
