Help with keeping my wrists straight?

3 posts in this topic Last Reply

Hello all. I am fairly new to golf as I have been playing for about a year now. I was wondering if anyone could help me with hitting my iron and driver shots. I had posted on here awhile ago in regards to hitting wedge shots. Everyone was very helpful and now I hit fairly decent wedge shots( the ball goes in the direction I am aiming 95 percent of the time:-)) I went to Dick's sporting goods because I was only hitting my driver about 175 yards max, and thought maybe a new driver would fix the issue. The gentleman there let me use the simulator they have and I was doing the exact same thing I was doing at the range and only hitting it about 175 with a brand new Callaway driver. He told me he thinks that I am breaking my wrists way to early and coming in way to steep to hit the ball. I think he is correct because I have been practicing so much chipping that I have gotten uses to breaking my wrists right away. So how should I fix this so that I can shallow out my swing? I think if I shallow out my swing I should also be able to hit farther. Thanks in advance!

Post a swing video.   There is plenty of help available from the membership.   Online help is too general at best.   Everyone may be guessing your particular situation.    With video, the more knowledgeable will be able to give you specific help with "your" situation.

Read the "How to" section.

Good luck

Ok, I will post a video as soon as I can get to the driving range. Thank you!

    • Today I started using mine to practice on the carpet at home.
      Primarily for chipping and checking impact and flight direction. That helps me adjust my grip/clubhead angle. Their weight and material will obviously result in a different distance when hit in comparison to a regular golf ball. Therefore I would only use it for occasional practice at home.
    • So a local cadie who cadies the course whole year round, knows less about the course then a pro caddie who visits the course once a year (for a week). Or even less because the pro’s don’t play the course every year.                                     And about not speaking English, what do we know for sure? Even caddies in Marroko at mediocre courses speak enough English, at least enough to caddie. And Matt doesn’t speak a word Mexican/Spanish too? People find ways to communicate.                                             One way or an other, Kuchar was at the top of his form. The way the caddie acted could be more important then is given credit for.
    • 72 last week at TPC Summerlin from the TPC tees (6400) in maybe one of the coldest conditions I've ever played in. 71 today back home, hit 15 greens. Missed four birdie putts within 5ft and got a bad break where I drove it into a bunker and it plugged in the lip (made bogey). Not bad for the range being closed and only getting to practice once this week and not much last week either. This was my drive on 15, and it wasn't like it was a high fade, solid medium flight draw.  
    • Yeah it was a dumb move PR wise to not be very generous with the bonus.  Can't really compare the usual rate with that week with Ortiz, completely different situations. John Wood is there for him every minute of every week, scouting the course beforehand, getting yardages, mapping greens and paying for his own travel. They can also act as emotional "support" and the good ones figure out when to give it and when to hold back. Ortiz is nowhere close to building up that "sweat equity" to earn 10%. If I was John Wood I would have been very insulted if my guy paid a temp caddy 120K.  
    • “How much should you pay?” questions tend to select responses. How much should you pay for a car? Obviously the guy who paid over a million for his McLaren doesn’t think everyone should; that’s the whole point of having one. Likewise, the guys with the $2k custom Scottys want something exclusive.   So it makes sense that most of the responses are $300 or less. If you just want to make putts, and know basically what you need in terms of length and style (mallet, blade, etc.), I don’t think you need to spend more than $100 on ebay. I’ve sold several perfectly serviceable and respectably branded putters for less.   Personally, I paid $350 for my Evnroll ER5, which I love. I like it so much that I’m going to spend even more for the black one when it becomes available. It was a subtle difference between the ER5 and my Ping Tyne ($189, I think), that it replaced. But given a choice, I’d choose the Evnroll every time. I can’t afford — and have no desire — to run with the big dogs when it comes to putters. And if I couldn’t afford a $350 putter, I think I’d do ok with any of the ones that I sold. But it’s a hobby, and it could be worse. I could be collecting large stationary engines.
