Video Golf Tip | Wrist Cock Delay Drill

Many golfers have trouble delaying their wrist cock as they come in to the impact zone. Here is a little drill you can try at home. Take your right hand out in front of you and then cock your right wrist back; that is the secret to doing this drill. Now simply take your left hand and cross over and grab your fingers on your right hand. You will notice immediately that it adds a tremendous amount of set in your right hand. Now your arms are sort of crossed like this. From here you just practice the backswing and down to impact. Backswing and down to impact. Then backswing to just short of impact. Like this. Then from there you let go with your left hand. So you go up to the top, down and then let go with the left hand. Boom. Feel that release. That give you the feeling of the right wrist cock back and then release forward. After you do that drill take a golf club and try to capture that same feeling. I guarantee you that it will help you really get the feeling of the delayed setting of the club, of the delayed uncocking of the club as you come in to the impact zone.

Controlling Distance: Wrist Cock Drill A firm-wristed swing during the downswing and follow through can help you control the distance of your shots
Practice Session Routine Start your practice session by picking a close target that you know the distance to and hit little wedges that land at the spot, this will start you off with solid impact and contact as well as help your short game
Solid Downswing with Lag Focus on your left wrist at the top of the backswing and start of the downswing to get to impact properly, many players have a cupped left wrist which changes the angle of the clubface, this causes an open clubface and results in casting and manipulation during the last portion of the downswing
