A lot of golfers have a tendency to lean the shaft of their irons forwards or backwards before starting their backswing, but this video explains exactly why this is a problem.
Every golfer wants three things with their iron play. Distance. Consistency. And Accuracy.
Leaning the club shaft is a common habit in golf, with many players feeling more comfortable giving the club a slight push forwards before taking the club back, but what many do not realise is that by doing so, you are having a huge impact on the accuracy of the shot.

I originally posted this video 6 months ago but I decided to repost it because it will help many of you understand why you’re early releasing the club prior to impact. The video is all about shaft lean matchups and how it relates to EARLY RELEASING. Work on getting that clubface under control (no longer wide open) in the downswing and you’ll have the tools to start developing more shaft lean at impact. Your body won’t need to stall and release early in an effort to square the clubface because it won’t be open anymore! Keep in mind that all visuals and movements here were exaggerated for effect. An entire breakdown of early releasing is the topic for my newest series on @coursekings set to be released soon. Tag friends who need to see this
