A block to the right is typically caused by a swing path that is too shallow (flat) and a clubface that is open to the target. Without seeing your swing I cannot be certain of your swing path, so I want you to check the following elements: ...

A release, as I define it, is the opposite of the block and the necessary subsequent manipulations (you either block OR release, you can't have a combination of the two). There is no tendency to drag the club through impact and therefore the clubface will not be significantly open.

Block: A shot played severely to the right; as opposed to slices, which curve from left to right, a blocked shot goes directly right. Similar to the "push".
Block: Shot that goes straight, but suddenly makes a turn to the right (assuming you are a right handed golfer) ...

~: A swing in which the rotation of the forearms is delayed or prevented throughout the hitting area, generally producing a shot that flies to the right of the target. (With a pond guarding the left side of the green. Ernie Els ~ed his approach shot to the right of the flag).

~ed when trying to make a move.
Can mean the first 9 holes (front side) or the last 9 (back side) of an 18 hole course. Also two or more players who are partners.

If you ~ the release of your clubface through the hitting area, your left arm will be above your right just after impact and the clubface will be left open. This look creates a Y, not an X. The results are weak, glancing golf shots with both poor distance and direction.

Hack: A ~ who has limited ability and generally a swing like a dying octopus.
Halved: in match play, a hole is halved (drawn) when both players or teams have played the same number of strokes.

This full body release drill will reduce the likelihood of ~ing or quitting on your shots. It will help keep you on line and prevent you from throwing the right shoulder out and across the target line ("casting").

Hitting balls that lie below the feet is excellent practice for players who ~ the ball to the right or struggle with duck-hooking. Shots that are ~ed to the right or duck-hooked result from the club being trapped too far to the inside (behind the body) in the downswing.

If, for instance, you're ~ed by a tree, try to hit a high shot over it as well as a draw or fade around it. This type of practice is, after all, the real thing. It also forces you to develop your imagination.

Since the swing of the left hand and arm is effectively ~ed both by the incorrect body movement and the resisting right arm, the wrist must now break if the club-head is to keep moving. This is precisely what happens. The wrists break too early... and too much....

It takes advantage of supply and demand and operates under the belief that "less is more". And I think that's why it is so anticipated year in and year out. I ~ my calendar and make it a point to tune in every year, and especially on Sunday afternoon to watch the action and drama unfold.

A golf ball is made up of mostly plastic and rubber materials. A two-piece ball consists of a solid rubber core with a durable thermoplastic (ionomer resin) cover. The rubber starts out as a hard ~, which must be heated and pressed to form a sphere.
