Thanks, Annika

John Van Keulen loved the recent "release" tip from Annika. And I love the fact that he's still playing golf at this time of year...


Annika's 3 keys / "Release for distance" tip was the most helpful tip I've been able to incorporate into my weekly practice sessions. As a 50-year-old-golfer of 40 + years the release has always been a major weakness in my 12 handicap, especially under a little NASA pressure. I could HANG ON TO THE BALL so long it would be OB left before it ever left the tee box on tight par 3s. The index finger on top immediately made sense and gave me a true feel of complete release at last. My playing partners are no longer a subject to my pre-swing vocals of the song "PLEASE RELEASE, ME LET ME GO". I'm sure they'll be pleased to miss this treat.

Annika says, nice work! And here are some more tips you might like....
