Your wrists play an important role in your golf swing and you've most likely heard me say that good wrist action is no wrist action. However, I see a lot of students that tend to bow or break their wrists near the top of their swing. This will hamper your ability to repeat shots, so I suggest you try and maintain a flat wrist. It can be a challenge, so I'm going to provide you with some of my techniques so that you have a better chance of cementing your wrist position during the swing and at impact.
This was a topic brought up by another question sent in from Doug Boone:
Wrists: The Surge swing has many parts that deviate from conventional golf and one of them is The Surge's view on no cocking of the wrists. I have always been told that the #1 alignment in golf is a bent right wrist and a flat left wrist or even slightly bowed is better. All players have these qualities at the top of their swing but only the great players are able to sustain it. There in lie the difference between players, how long can you sustain this position and the lag it creates? This is not just my opinion, it is geometry.
There are schools of thought that say that on the backswing the player must not attempt to cock the right wrist, it will happen on the way down all by itself. Hogan did not say that he wished he had 3 right arms for nothing.
You must have flat wrists, especially at impact. They should remain flat, firm, and solid, all while maintaining the same angle you set at address. Your hands will win the race to the ball, with the clubhead arriving just fractions after. This is why they cannot break, otherwise your clubhead can come into impact either open or closed instead of square.
Be sure to watch the video as I give guidelines on how to set up from the moment you pick up a club.
Keep it vertical!
