Video Golf Tip | The Rounded Golf Swing

You hear me talking a lot about making a rounded golf swing. I do that for a lot of good reasons, one is that it helps you square the face at impact. You want your clubface to work like my hand is working, this way, so my thumb works up. It works back to square, and it works up this way. You want to feel the club rotate. When you go back and you swing from this direction, you want to feel your wrist hinge naturally. They are hinging due to the wrists being relaxed and due to the elbows being relaxed. The weight of the club down here is what is cocking your wrists, watch this. I in no way tried to cock my wrist intentionally. They just happened because I did not have too much tension. So when you are cocking your wrists, again, you want it to feel natural. Do not try to do things intentionally, make that rounded swing. Let your wrists be relaxed, your elbow joints be relaxed and the club should rotate nice and naturally. Again, you want that clubface squaring up at impact, so that you hit your golf ball straight.
