The thing about having the extended release is that you’re not turning – I’ve said before, there is “no turn in the swing,” only the pivot, whereas if you’re actually trying to time a “turn” through impact, you’re just going to make things much more difficult than they have to be.
So, here are driver and 7i shown dtl in slow motion, so you can see that extension into impact and post-impact, before any turn to the target occurs.
7 Iron – Down The Line
It happens too quickly to see even in regular slow-mo, but when the down swing into impact is slowed down further, you can see that there is only a returning to square at impact with the shoulders, and not a turning into it.
Driver – Down The Line
All of this “turning through impact” that you are told about in the modern golf garbage you watch on TV, is why the pros don’t know where their balls are going half the time.
It is very difficult to consistently time a swing where you’re trying to turn “to the target” through impact.
