You hear so much talk about the wrists in the golf swing on how to hinge them early or to retain the wrist cock in the downswing as long as possible. Well the people who I see working on these things always over do it and end up losing power and accuracy.
The wrists do hinge in the golf swing, but if you try this little tip you will feel like they won’t.
Hit some balls while feeling like your right wrist is in a cast or that it does not hinge at all. Start out with some half swings and then work your way into some hard full shots and keep doing it. This is a great way to feel where your real power and accuracy comes from and that is the core muscles of your body.
This also will make you use your arms correctly in the swing. You will start feeling how the shaft is supposed to work. In other words, you will start keeping an enormous amount of pressure in it when you change directions from back swing to down swing.
