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.

    • Putting practice is very different from one player (and especially skill level to the next).   here are my impressions.   it is true that 30-50% of all shots are from the green.  but, you can't really look at it that way, because even on a good putting day, half of those are inevitable.  If you two putt every single green in regulation, I doubt you're gonna be too down on yourself.  so really, the strokes you are adding or subtracting from your card are the number of 3-putts and 1-putts.   For your average golfer, there are really just two things you need to accomplish to putt well.   Making every putt under 6 feet.  and putting every putt outside that 6-foot circle to within the circle.   1) making every putt within 6 feet this is really just about repetition.  and it really doesn't matter where you are getting your reps.  I have an 8 ft putting mat in my living room.  If I spend an hour just hitting balls on this over, and over, and, over, I notice is great deal of improvement in making my 5 footers.  I know it sounds simple, but just learning how to repeatedly hit the ball straight and having the confidence standing over the ball to hit it straight makes a huge difference.   note: I assume as you get better and better at golf (and putting), this method of practice will have less and less of a positive impact.  This really only helps you become confident in your putting stroke, once you've got that down, you've got bigger fish to fry.   2) hitting everything outside that 6 foot circle to within 6 feet.   This one is a bit trickier.  I think the best practice for this one is to get to a practice green and putt from many different distances.  and changing it up very frequently (as opposed to putting many balls from one distance and then moving).  This one is all about feel.  and feel only comes with practice.     If you can get really good at these two simple skills, you can certainly become a passable putter.   Now the next step is raising your conversion rate on 10-15 foot putts.   I think this step takes a lot more work and a much better understanding of how to read a green as well as being a lot more precise with your pace.   If I ever figure this stuff out, I'll do my best to share.               
    • 8/31/16: Slower backswings with a slightly faster through swing. Swinging at perhaps 60-65% of my "normal speed" I honestly don't lose much distance with it. So I think I might use this for a while. "Ledge" gave me this tip on Sunday. (After my match). He told me, I would be more consistent with it, so I'm giving it a shot. As August has 31 days, I've completed the "5 Minutes Daily" challenge for August. @iacas, how do I make text red in mobile?
    • I have a Smart TV, only Smart appliance in the house.
    • I would average maybe one birdie a round at best these days since I am only playing weekends, and mostly not even every weekend.  When I was playing more regularly, between 1 and 3 birdies a round depending on the day.  Overall, I would say a low percentage but I rarely keep stats on GIR and birdies.  The maximum is in tournaments when I tend to keep score but having turned in the card I never keep the data.  Should start doing that.  Would assume GIR of maybe 50% at present and maybe 10% at best for GIR to birdie.  Handicap is low double digits though have not updated it in my home club since rarely play there these days
    • IMO, if you know someone is about to hit your ball, you should give them a heads up. This is a gentlemen's game. Ultimately it is the player hitting the shot responsibility to identify the ball and make sure. Its bad taste, but not a penalty if you let them hit your ball. In my club championship last week I found a ball in the rough that I thought was my competitors. I said "hey your'e hitting a black titleist, right?" He says yeah and plays the ball. We get to the green and its not his ball. I felt pretty bad for finding the ball (his original was like 3ft away from the wrong ball played). He reassured me it was his fault for not looking at it before hitting it. Both were black titleists but his had a logo on the side (I didnt see it or know about the logo).
