Swing Light And Easy Not Hard And Heavy

Before playing a round or practicing at the range take your grip on the clubhead end of the shaft and swing the grip end from your normal stance. Swing the grip-end as if hitting a shot and listen for the swish as it descends down from the top of your swing. You should hear the swish at the very bottom where the ball would be. If you hear the swish at the bottom you are most likely allowing the club to accelerate at the correct time in the swing and reach maximum speed at the ball not before.  Do this and you will sense more of the correct timing and release in the swing vs. trying to force the swing from the top with your body or arms. As Sam Snead used to say, "Swing Easy, Hit It Hard!"
