When is your right wrist 'cupping' in the swing? At the top of your back swing the right wrist will always assume a slightly cupped position and just before impact the right wrist will appear slighty cupped.

its just at impact and the clubhead get's in front of my hands? When I try to slow down hands that's when i start hitting the hoselrockets? I want a couple drills to try at the range.

Try putting a popsicle stick between your glove and the back of your left hand on the range. This will force you to hit the ball with the back of your left hand instead of releasing the club too early. If you don't do it correctly.....Ouch!

I will try that, kind of sounds like the Rick Smith golf glove? Would you say to keep the top of my left hand facing the target?

Yes, it helps to you to create the feeling of a solid, firm left wrist that is facing the target during impact. Believe me, no need to buy a fancy training aid. Just one popsicle stick will do it. Definitely worth a try.

If I were you, I wouldnt do that popsicle stick thing. You can try it doing slow motion backswing and swing to the impact position, but the wrists should naturally release and the left wrist should bend in the release after impact, so this will just cause unnecessary pain and possibly injury.

popsicle thing was ok, I tried it at home first but used is as a visual. Ended up ordering the Rick Smith glove because a guy at the range uses it. I just want to stop scooping the darn ball.
