Problem Turning Hands Over

18 posts in this topic

Had my first lesson of the year the other day, it was the first in a couple years as I did not play at all last year. There were a few issues that I have to address, but I was advised to start working on keeping my lead wrist flat at impact and then rotating my hands over. After watching the video of my swing it's apparent that my left wrist is breaking down just after impact (I'm right handed). I have my swing video from my lesson, and I will try to get it up here shortly. Basically I'm looking for drills to fix this. I was advised to try swinging the club like a bat until I get the feel of turning my wrist over , however once I put a ball in front of me I revert back to my original swing. Sorry for being long winded but I'm a little frustrated, Any ideas would be greatly appreciated?

Couple things

- What is the reason for rotating the hands over after impact? The ball is already gone.

- It's normal for the lead wrist to "cup" after impact. Just want it flat at impact.

If the left wrist is breaking down before impact then I would suggest Key #2 and 3 drills here

Found this enlightening especially the part starting around 2:30.

Probably heard the same thing a hundred times but for some reason this bit fired a neuron, no rhyme or reason why things sometimes click when they do.

He puts it a bit differently than most. I liked it.

I liked how he turned and showed how it appeared he had rolled his wrists. Good video.

Yeah hopefully the "take home" most people get from watching it.

To me release has always been a bi-product of a good golf motion. Right now the only feeling I get with my hands is post impact, which gives me good feedback on my swing. Because my hand movement post impact varies depending on if I hit the shot I want or not.

Martin Chuck in his video bandaged his forearms with different colored bandages. That was an interesting look as well.

So what does it mean when you hold them open ( like I do ). What feeling can a player use to get rid of this?

Do you mean "open" like these pics? Going to generally see guys that hit push draws with this "look". Most golfers struggle with "flipping" and get the face pointing leftward at impact.

So for you, without seeing your swing, I would say it's probably a path or sequencing problem and not a face problem.

Quoting so I can watch later.

Open like this:

Yeah so the picture on the right is a result of things that are happening before it. Do those numbers represent where you are in the pic? Because you should be more open with your hips. If the hips stay too closed, the club will "overtake" the hands at a fast rate.

Thank you for posting, this is very helpful.  I personally love his vids, I think he is just a great communicator so therefore his lessons tend to "stick" more.

    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      Here's some more below about the lowest you might expect - even on an easy course. I think this is largely true, but pros don't tend to play a lot on 'easy' courses so there doesn't seem to be even much anecdotal stuff. The quote below describes what's considered the 'perfect round'. I guess you could also consider a 'go-for-green' perfect round where you also hit all the par 5's in two and one-putted those for eagle for a 'go-for-green perfect' score of 50. Obviously the likelihood of doing this in a single round defies the essence of golf, but it's a good a hard theoretical lower limit that probably depends more on the par than the course rating. Likely the odds grow exponentially as the percentage of birdied / eagled holes rises. I think we can discount albatrosses as a 'perfect round' option. Most tournament pro scores don't get below 56 and 59 with about an 80/20 rule separating the more frequent 59s from the 58's. That's 4-5 strokes (assuming par 72) over the 'perfect round' and 8-9 over the 'go-for-green perfect round', each of which represent grabbing about 75% and 61% respectively of the potential shots under par realistically available. I suppose a short par-4 would add another potential eagle opportunity, but we'll discount that as I'm not sure how universal they are. The lowest tournament round was 55 (par of 71) by one single golfer out of how many total tournament rounds by pros and plus HCP amateurs over the years? So while 55 is humanly achievable it's super rare and likely represents the lower limit of any possible likelihood. That would put the absolute lowest threshold around 17.8 below the course rating (72.8) and 16 below par. So there's a lot of room to go below even a low course rating or par of 70. I don't think the expected scores would get too squished and the distribution would still likely be normal in shape. The thing that is probably unrealistic is how narrow the range of expected scores is. The field is extremely consistent, but I think a single individual player (whose average score is the same as the field) will have a score variance significantly larger than the field. I think the mode likely stays the same while the distribution flattens / spreads out more into the tails with a little more probability to both go low and high and less certainty of shooting within a stroke or two of the mode / most likely score.  
    • Difference in These Putters Besides Price?
      My mind is made up, don't confuse me with facts! Someone beat me to it, but there are obvious differences in the appearance of those two putters. The most obvious is that the alignment marks don't align! And the mark on the instep (if that's what it's called), looks like it was hacked in with a machete or maybe a cold chisel. Never mind that it looked like it laid in a barn for 10 years! Hey, I'm a senior and retired, so I'm always on the lookout for a bargain, but I refuse to buy cheap crap just because it's cheap. I remember a radio show I heard years ago where the discussion was about value vs cost. A woman called in and said she didn't have a lot of money, so she couldn't afford to buy "cheap". The host asked her what she meant. She replied that buying cheap stuff that does not perform and wears out early is more expensive in the long run than buying top quality goods that do the job and will last! Admittedly, they weren't talking golf equipment here, but the idea is the same.

      Therefore, use a nurturing day cream to which at least a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) 15 has been added. If you spend the day out in the sun, use a sunscreen with at least SPF 30.
