Increase your golf swing speed with this amazing, one two, power punch. You will be amazed how these two simple motions using the right arm can greatly increase your distance.

Most mid to high handicap golfers tend to make a simple mistake when it comes to club head speed. They release the right arm too early. This causes you to lose lag and to spend your potential speed early in the downswing. The key is to keep this potential speed for later in the swing, the release it quickly with the one – two power punch.

The first move is to release the right arm. But only after the club is halfway into the downswing. If you release the club early you will lose club head speed. You want to imagine the right arm as working like a piston. The arm will be bent as you are halfway into the downswing and then extend to increase the speed of the arms and hands. This is the first motion that will increase your speed.

The second motion is with the wrists. Up until this point the club will be lagging far behind the hands. Once you reach this point of the swing, you will downward cock (ulnar deviation) to release the built up angle of the wrists. This is the second move of this power punch. This will immediately increase the speed of the club head and give you much more distance.

Good luck with your golf game. I look forward to working with you soon.

This reminds me of Mike Dunaways release drills. He does the “bury the club
head into the rug” technique. Your video on the physics of a catapult and
how the body should work in the same way when swinging a club was amazing.
I just discovered your videos on youtube and ill be suscribing to your
page. Your style of swing swinging just makes sense in generating speed.

Clay, when I uncock my wrists the club goes very toe deep. Guess I am
vertically uncocking the wrists. Guess I don’t understand releasing the
wrists properly. Is there some lateral unhinging or rotation with the

Clay, based on your experience, what is the average increase in swing speed
with this method?

Doc, with the piston motion like that, how do you make sure you’re still
attacking the ball from the inside? When I try to keep the lag to that
degree I feel like I end up releasing from the outside at impact and
cutting across the ball. When I look at Woods’ footage, it looks like he’d
be hitting a cut with that swing too. Does that have more to do with his
body rotation than his arms? Or am I just seeing it wrong? Golf Instruction says:

It sounds like your shoulders may be opening and tilting everything to the
left. Be sure to keep the shoulders back until you release the club, just
as you can see in the demos in this video. Also be sure the right albow
doesn’t fire out away from your body. It will extend over your toes. Tiger
is still hitting a very straight shot. He plays both a fade and a draw
depending on what the course calls for. Good Luck! ~Clay Ballard Golf Instruction says:

It would all depend on your current technique. If you are casting the club
and losing tons of lag, you will see huge increases in your speed right
away. If your lag and release are already pretty solid, you may not see as
much. What is your current clubhead speed? ~Clay Ballard
