Today is Thursday, January 26th, 2017 and we present Technical Thursday in our ongoing golf series.  Mel Sole will discuss how to get the feel of a proper wrist hinge in the backswing to create speed and power.

In previous posts, I have spoken about keeping the grip pressure soft in order to get a good wrist hinge at the top of the backswing.  But unfortunately, some of my students still are unable to get a proper wrist cock and therefore are losing some distance.  So here is a drill you can do on the range to get the feel for a 90-degree wrist hinge.

In your address position, start the backswing with an immediate wrist cock.  Make sure the wrists are cocked at about 90 degrees.  Now turn to the top of your backswing, maintaining that angle all the way to the top.  You now have a 90-degree wrist cock at the top of your backswing.  Repeat over and over.  This is something you can do at home if you wish.

Oce you go back to the course, go back to keeping the grip pressure soft, and now that you have the correct feel, allow your wrists to hinge at the top and swing through.  You will notice a lot more clubhead speed.
