In reply to: Peter 's message, "What do you mean by release?" on 07:21:48 07/07/00 Fri

The current (August) issue of Golf Magazine has an article by Mike Malaska (Top 100 Teacher) with Peter Morrice titled "20% More Power - Learn to release like the pros and max out your swing speed"

Their definition: "Let's break down the two parts of the release: arm rotation and wrist hinge." "As the arms pass in front of the body on the downswing, the right forearm naturally rotates over the left (photo 3 above), a mirror image of what the arms do on the backswing. This rotational force sends additional speed down the shaft to the clubhead and also helps square the clubface..."

"When the wrists unhinge and then rehinge through the hitting area, the clubhead snaps into the ball, that's the effortless power you see in good players."

This is consistent with the way I use the term and the last quote is the feeling I now have of release. These quotes alone do not however indicate the power of the "snap" and the fact that it is a result as opposed to an action.
