A good drill to allow your club to fling from your wrist is actually teeing the ball up and hitting some small chips and pitches using your wrists and your elbow joints, which doesn’t require a lot of body movement, which eliminates pulling your arms through impact. 

You don’t need to swing very hard; you just need to learn to let the club pass your hands so that you’re not moving the grip fast. As you get better and better at this drill, you’re going to realize that it’s very easy to move the ball with tremendous speed even though you’re not making much effort because the energy is going through the clubhead and not through the grip.
