No flips

“Flippiness”, the dreaded early release, occurs if your body gets too far in front of the golf ball. When this happens, your club will drastically lag, usually with an open face.
Instinctively, your hands will work to close the face at impact.
This level of timing is difficult even for the pros to execute on a consistent basis. What usually happens is the club head races in front of the shaft and strikes the ball with an open or a closed face, and typically on an ascending arc.
In baseball, if you get too far in front, you’ll hit the ball to right field, unless you flip the wrists. The same is true in golf.
You need to establish a firm left side to keep your head behind the ball and stop the flip.
