  1. I know there are plenty of threads about stopping the dreaded flip at impact so I hope it's OK to start another one. I read though a thread on another site regarding Jim Waldron's arm swing illusion. While the thread was mainly focused on the arm motion in the back swing (which I thought was excellent), there were some tidbits about flipping the wrists at impact and it being caused by the hit impulse. I'd like for this thread to be focused on that. What I believe he is saying is side to side arm motion vs. up and down arm motion is what causes golfers to flip at impact. He believes
  2. Occasionally I get a lesson where someone doesn't get their weight forward. They "flip" and "throw" and hit the shots you'd expect to hit: fat, thin, etc. Even their good shots are "picked" pretty cleanly without a descending AoA, and they often play the ball farther back in their stance than better players do. I'd like to think I'm pretty good about fixing this. It takes some time, and the students have to practice - of course - but by doing things differently and knowing the priority and order of things, they can work away from this. But occasionally - really rarely - you get
  3. Hey all . .just a quick question to pick your golf brains. I know (or think I know) a typical cause of flipping is under-rotation. In this case, we see the golfer facing the camera at impact, wrists approximately between the legs. What would cause an picture at impact that shows the hips open to the target, shoulders closed, (flipping) wrists in front of the right thigh? ie - it essentially looks like the player has continued his swing with his body, but his arms are hanging back to flip at the ball . . . . Is this primarily caused by letting the club get behind you in the backsw
  4. I've been trying to get rid of my flip and add lag as long as I've been golfing, with just about zero luck. The other day I started taking swings and removing my right hand completely at the top of the swing and realized I wasn't flipping at all, perfect impact position. This made me realize my right hand was the likely culprit, so I tried something I have never heard anyone recommend and I'd like to know if anyone has tried this or heard of it: From the start of my downswing, I started pulling "up" with my right hand- almost like I was fighting the downswing. What resulted was a powerful
  5. Any suggestions for wrist flipping! Bought the tour striker a few months ago and I can hit it ok but very low on the face, some shots are worm burners. If I hit one handed with the left hand only they feel firm, as soon as I put my right hand on it then the flip happens. Saw an ad for : hit down dammit , would this help me solve my problem? Thanks for any help and or suggestions, I am a 10 handicap and would finally like to hit better and more solid shots!
  6. This question has popped into my head a few times over the past couple of weeks, and I looked around trying to find an answer with none satisfying my query (if this has been discussed please merge if necessary). I am not really sure what the answer is, but the situation is this and I'm trying to understand. My friend flips the club no problem, and when we look at his swing it is obvious that he has a swing path that is in-out (he still has a two way miss where he will miss with an overdraw one day and a slice the other). However, it is not just my friend I have seen other videos
  7. title is self explanatory. I have a nasty habit of flipping at the ball, i.e., club head before hands at impact. Once it was pointed out to me it's gotten better, but still creeps in and causes some mishits (chunks). Seen a lot about using an impact bag as a drill to fix this, but not sure how. Am I supposed to hit the bag (don't see how that would help)? Am I supposed to put it behind the ball to make sure I keep the angle (seems like a towel would serve the same purpose)?
  8. Just wondering if flipping at impact could cause me to slide the club under the ball and loose alot of distance? I go through phases of nice shallow divots and good accuracy/distance,...to no divots and loss of distance/accuracy goign to read the flipping at impact master thread shortly once work is finished,... PS: I also blade alot of chips if i dont get my hands ahead of the clubhead
  9. Does having Sergio Garcia like lag guarantee you proper impact, ball first, flat wrist, divot after ball? Or is it the other way around, a consequence of a good strike promotes lag or not throw away?
  10. 1) What does flipping the wrists at impact cause? 2) After impact position (left wrist flat, right wrist bent) , what do the wrists do?
  11. I'm going up to the range today and I want to sort out this flip that I've got. any tips on how to stop it? edit: i'm not sure if I have a flip anymore. (taken 2 months ago)
  12. I have started doing this right before/at impact with the ball and it has eliminated my slice. What is the proper terminology for flipping the wrist and or who else uses this technique with their golf swing? I think this is going to be a game breaker for me.
