This question has popped into my head a few times over the past couple of weeks, and I looked around trying to find an answer with none satisfying my query (if this has been discussed please merge if necessary).
I am not really sure what the answer is, but the situation is this and I'm trying to understand.
My friend flips the club no problem, and when we look at his swing it is obvious that he has a swing path that is in-out (he still has a two way miss where he will miss with an overdraw one day and a slice the other). However, it is not just my friend I have seen other videos here of players that say they hit push draws and draws, but when I see their video they are flip city.
My self on the other hand I feel like I have a pretty flat wrist, however my big issue has always been (and is slightly changing with the irons, but not the Dr & 3W) swinging around my body and thus an out-in at contact or as I have heard coming across the ball causing the right curving shot (mostly push slices with the long clubs & fades with the irons).
Do people who flip just have an easier time swinging out because of all the time they give themselves and their body doesn't really move forward enough, while the others who might have a flat left wrist end up going around their body because their hips have no where to go since they have moved their weight way forward, and now the hips just pop open and bring the club with it?
Another issue is should this person who does flip start working on getting his hips forward and more of a flat left wrist at impact expect that his push draws will most likely turn to push slices and fades now?
