Video Golf Tip | Release the Wrists for More Power

Delay the head. Hold the angle. Those are supposed descriptions of how to create more power. To me it is an absolute fallacy. First of all there is delay in the golf swing and it is similar to baseball where you move into the pitch and keep the bat back. That is the delaying action in the golf swing. Once we move into motion, as we are in motion into the ball, the hands have to get to work early to time the club out and deliver the club. So if we are trying to hold the wrist angle into impact what you can see is that I am going to have the tendency to hit a lot of shots to the right and weak. Then what you will tend to do is that as you are holding the wrists you will stay on the back foot and flip the club over and you are going to hit some pulls as well. Even if you hit the ball on line it is not going to have the energy it should. What we really want to time is as the wrist is going back the body is moving in, and the wrist action will feel like it is from the top of the back swing all the way into the ball. There is no point where the hands are not actively working to deliver a striking action. So my advice is to release the club, don’t delay it, and move into it energetically and move into it with your body you are going to hit much stronger golf shots with much more drive to the ball. So release the wrists, don’t hold them, they are important for power.
