Problem Turning Hands Over
TheSandTrap.com Top Picks
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?
- 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
He puts it a bit differently than most. I liked it.
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.
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.
