Eliminate Casting to Increase Swing Speed

Eliminate Casting to Increase Swing Speed.

Gene Parente of Golf Laboratories breaks down what casting is why it’s a distance killer.

Casting is a common swing fault among amateur golfers caused by starting the downswing too fast in an attempt to smash the ball. This results in a jerking motion and flip of the wrists at the start of the downswing.

This motion is a great technique for catching fish, but NOT for the golf swing. This early release or casting of the golf club makes it impossible to generate lag, which is the key to longer drives.

Eliminate Casting to Increase Swing Speed

A simple fix to eliminate casting is to start your downswing slowly and increase your speed linearly. Data shows that a golfer with an average swing speed of 90mph will see an increase of 4-5mph in speed and 12 or more yards.

Yes, that’s right—no need to go to the gym. Just SLOW DOWN when initiating the downswing. I know it’s counterintuitive, but you can’t argue with physics.
