My great friend and mentor, Phil Ritson, who I regard as the greatest teacher I have ever known, taught this to me many, many years ago.

And I still incorporate this in my teaching today.  Control the release with the left forearm (for right-handed golfers) and NOT the right hand, and you will get consistent results.  I like Martin Hall’s way of saying EDPU Elbow Down Palm Up.  Describing it differently might help some golfers understand what they have to do to eliminate their slice.  The other example he uses that I like as well as the “Key” drill. Watch and learn how to finally get rid of that pesky slice.  If you still cannot do it, come and see me, and I will help!
