DRILL: CREATE MORE WHOOSH FOR CLUBHEAD SPEED
Turn a club over, grip it with your right hand only and try to produce a loud whoosh where the ball would be. This is a good way to learn to unhinge the right wrist and release the club through the ball. Going back, you have to fold your right elbow and hinge your wrist to store power. Coming down, release those angles into impact. This throwing action not only increases speed, it helps produce a draw.
