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.
