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.

    • Mayb Spieth should spend more time over his ball, talked to his caddy more, slow things down a bit...........       (god help us no!)
    • I found  that I was making better contact  when I started my downswing with my arms.   BUT, on further review, and after watching a video of myself, I found the reason.   And the reason was, I  was ending my backswing by raising my arms.   I was becoming disconnected at the top of the back swing.   Thus, by starting my down swing with my arms, I was just getting re-connected and putting myself back into the position I should have been in at the top of my down swing.  Now, I am going to work on not raising my arms at the top of the back swing.   Then, I will be able to follow the advice in the post that started this thread.  Better yet, it's way past time for me to get some lessons from my local pro. 
    • To OP, your primary focus of all should be to learn to swing on plane first. Speed will come. It will come in boatloads. Consider the analogy of a car speeding in a NASCAR track. You can throttle the car when in the straight section of the track and get max speed but you have to slow down in the turn section, no matter how powerful the engine. Swinging 'on plane' with a proper sequence is like driving the car the straight section - you can maximize leverage and inertia for speed. Leveraging a club for speed until then is like trying to speed up at the turn - you will just go off track or will have to slow down to keep control. Of course swinging on plane is easier said then done. It is as closest to the 'holy grail' of golf you can get. Everybody, even experience players, are always chasing it. But swing even somewhat on plane will do wonders. Impact will dramatically improve too. You are new to the game. It is an exciting time with all kinds of new discoveries of what you can do with a golf club. THIS is the best time to get a camera and work with a good professional - do it NOW!!   
    • I played round 1 of 2 for the final local tournament of the year yesterday.  I struggled with my driver the entire day and managed to find only 1 of 14 fairways.  It was frustrating, to say the least.  

      On the plus side, I posted a 42 - 45 = 87 and I'm only 4 strokes back heading to the final round this morning.  

      I figure, if I can jump out to a quick start early... I have a chance.  I know I need to post something really low... like an 82 or something, to have a realistic opportunity to catch the leader... but I know I can do it on the course we're playing, so... I have my fingers crossed.  

      I'm about to head out in 45 minutes or so to get some practice time in prior to the round.  I'll update tomorrow.

    • @spider  Excellent review of the track!  It should give folks a pretty fair idea of the course and what it has to offer. In terms of playability, it holds up to any major championship courses. You are rewarded for accuracy, challenging at times, suited for golfers of all skill levels. Very affordable. Although we did not see any, at times there are lots of wild life on the course and some imported such as American Bison! There used to be several herds of sheep. The location is kind of out there, quiet, and off the beaten track, yet easily accessible. And "Oh Yeah", stellar 5W! (I carry one as well, Ben Hogan Speed Slot (Laminate) which I used frequently.  I am looking forward to the next event.@Shindig says he may try to put something together for the winter.
