  1. This may work for some people, but not for everyone in my opinion. Because the problem with many amateurs who would try this – may end up swinging their body fully without a brake. Rotation followed by a slow down (brake) is what creates power. Rotation alone maybe enough for some people, but not all people. For many people, the slow down of the body, which translates the motion of inertia to the club will be more effective way to release properly. Just my opinions.

  2. Dustin Johnson’s impact position happens to allow him to square his clubface on the back of the ball. He has to (and can) clear really hard with his body.For the average guy (not sharing DJ’s athleticism or club face positioning), trying to emulate his impact position probably isn’t going to go well.
