20 | | FA L L 2 0 1 8 B As a teacher, I've always tried to create mental images for my students to follow instead of getting too many technical thoughts into their heads. To help them keep from releasing the club too early, I use a few dif- ferent exercises and drills to create those mental images and give them the feel of a strong swing. One example is gripping the club cross-handed (A) – for a right-handed player, that means placing your right hand at the butt end of the grip and your left hand closer to the clubhead. Instead of making full swings cross-handed, I'll have the student start at the top of their backswing, then make a gentle mini-swing about halfway down toward impact (B). This helps them feel what it's like for their wrists to stay hinged longer, and for the left hand to stay parallel toward impact. If they can get that same feel with their regular grip, they're on their way to hitting more solid shots. A I N S T RU C T I O N
