I (a righty) had a tendency to let my left wrist collapse at the top of by backswing, dropping the clubhead towards the ground and causing inconsistencies in my ball striking. I’ve worked on keeping that left wrist flat and it has improved my consistency, especially for my driver with which I was fighting a slice. I’m zeroing in on regularly hitting what I guess would be a power fade off the tee. Irons have been flying straight. However, all this requires a conscious effort and focus on feeling my left wrist stay flat. I think I let the weight of the club bring my wrist down at the top of my backswing if I don't focus on it. The last couple times I’ve played alone I stopped my backswing and started again if I felt my wrist collapse or realized it a bit too late and hit a second shot with more focus on my wrist. What I’d like to know is if there are any tips or drills for ingraining that flat left wrist. It’d be nice to make it a natural part of my swing and not something I have to focus on. Thanks in advance.
