Transcript
If I can tell you a couple of key points,
is, for me, I make sure that I make
a full shoulder turn.
I think every good player, every good
amateur wants to do that.
And once I get the shoulder turn back,
I don't think about the change
in direction, it just happens.
But once I start coming, my hips will come this way,
but my club does not follow my hips.
Therefore, getting no power.
So what I try and do is get the club up here,
I clear my hips but I release the club going down the line.
But when I say release, I don't hold on this way,
otherwise you're gonna hit it a mile to the right.
So if you can learn to clear your hips
a little bit, and let the club go down the line
and release it towards the ball.
Not back here, where you're doing this.
So, there's a point where I think about,
once I make contact, then I feel
like I'm releasing the club.
So it'll be, what I call, past the ball.
So, once again for me, I get the club back,
and once I come down here, I'm clearing.
And my point of release is actually
at the ball, not back here.
You're holding your angle.
Once I get here, I go at it with pretty much,
it doesn't look like it, but I go
at it with everything I have.

Alfred Brown says:

I`m a professional of golf and even when I happen to be at it for twenty years, I still had trouble going over Ninety. 3-4 years back, I could not secure an outstanding round but that was just before I read the golf swing secrets “Jοmtοzο kaha” (Google it). My irons are not that good. I could manage driver appropriately but could simply reach a small range.. .

Ian Narb says:

Perfection…

Gary Pollard says:

Very informative.

Ethan Haas says:

I was able to attain a 73-point shot after reading, exercising, and doing the methods found in golf swing strategies “Jοmtοzο kaha” (Google it). I was also able to strike 13-18 greens and that was the greatest one I had ever since I started playing. I also almost hit the green with a distance of 5 to 10 yards on the other Five holes. My handicap is a nine so I don`t shoot 73s all the time. When I think it over, I haven’t had an outstanding round for a long period. .

Caemen Studios says:

Because of these golf swing strategies “Jοmtοzο kaha” (Google it), I was able to know “hows” and “whys” of a great golf swing and its various elements. I have read through the book twice and made Fifteen yards more on all irons, 25 more on my driver. Due to these improvements, I`m more confident and I am having more excitement with playing golf. .

John Clare says:

After reading the golf swing tricks “Jοmtοzο kaha” (Google it) and finishing it last week, I tried out the guide’s advices in the game. I never thought that after actively playing for Three decades, my swinging ability could still be improved. In addition to that, the practice exercises also helped fine-tune some small but crucial positions that I once thought didn’t matter. .

Rob Parker says:

Every swing is the same!

Johnny Parker says:

Not many tips on releasing the club. I know what he's talking about. Thanks Mr Couples

Nescafe Shorts says:

…I feel pressure on my right forefinger(right-handed golfers)when I start to release the clubhead.   Almost feels like I'm decelerating on the downswing.  When I think about it…it seems like there are two directions in the downswing…down & across.  My club is dropping down to the point where I decide to start releasing and then I release that right hand through and "that's when I can feel pressure on my forefinger".

Stephen Kennedy says:

Could be hit at least one ball?

Dave butler says:

That’s exactly what i do why isn’t the ball going 320 (more like 220)
