Hi! Recently, my pro said that I was cupping my left wrist at top of the swing. So we worked on "decupping" the left wrist, and when it worked it was a new revelation. I gained at least 10 yards on a mid-iron. I have played golf for 40 years, and never known about the wrist cupping/bowing effect on hitting the golf ball! So now I'm working on automating the flat wrist, and it works often/sometimes. It's easier with short irons and wedges, but more difficult with longer irons and the driver (well, most things are ). Basically, what I try to do now is to get to the top of the swing and kind of bow the left wrist. It does work pretty well, but what I keep thinking is that the left wrist should be correct all the way up. I shouldn't have to correct (bow) it at the top. Anyone got a good advice on a drill, and especially to avoid the cupping from the start? Thanks in advance!
