Watching golfers on the range and during my lessons you will see all kinds of swings. One of the biggest issues you will see is the breakdown of the hands and wrists through impact. In today’s video, you will learn how to keep structure in your arms, wrists and hands through impact using one of my favorite teaching aids. An inexpensive exercise stretchy band. You can find at any athletic store.
This is a crucial part of a golf swing. Pay attention in the video about getting the weight forward and the arms straight. Most golfers do this incorrectly keeping the weight on the back foot and the arms buckling in to their bodies. Your straight arms will give you structure in the swing. Any time you have this pushing motion your trail wrist will be bent back and your lead wrist will be flat. Your wrists are crucial to hitting solid golf shots that have a push draw ball flight. The most sought after ball flight in golf. You will gain distance and direction with a push draw.
After you watch the video, go out and practice this type of motion and you will begin to have different sensations in your golf swing. You should rehearse this motion in front of a mirror. This motion will help you compress the golf ball on the face of the club. A simple way to think of this motion is arms straight and weight forward. Do these two fundamentals and you will be off to playing better golf.
