Video Golf Tip | Wrist Mobility in the Golf Swing

Has your golf professional told you that your clubface is too open at the top of your backswing? In other words, are you achieving this open position at the top of your backswing? Well, the problem may be physiologically based, it may not be your fault at all. The muscles that allow the upward and downward cock in the wrists are called wrists extensors and flexors, and if they are tight it will have a direct effect on the position you achieve at the top of the swing. Ideally, the right wrist needs to be able to fold into position. If it is straight, which is the sort of effect you can get if don’t have range upwards in the wrist, the clubface can end up in an open position. This happens to a lot of people who use computers or are gripping hold of a steering wheel. A typical example wrist tension is rushing to get to the golf course and you are getting your hands in a locked position on the steering wheel and you carry that on to the course itself. I want to show you two exercises that will stretch and strengthen these muscles, but I really want to point out some of the faults that people will make when they are doing these exercises.

Bunker Sand Displacement The key to a bunker shot is to eject the sand from the bunker and have the ball go with the sand
Putt-Chip Shot Using a chipping club with a putting set up will pop the ball up slightly and allow it to land and roll softly which is perfect for when you are chipping down slope and need to kill the speed of your chip
Deep Bunkers Do not make tough bunker shots harder than they already are, when faced with a deep bunker with high lips play your stance and clubface square and let the loft of the sand wedge pop the ball up or just play the ball to a lower part of the bunker lip
