Video Golf Tip | Pre Set Wrist Swing Drill

One thing that average golfers, certainly beginners, need to understand is the wrist cock up and down, this way, this gives you a tremendous amount of power. Most amateurs tend to have their wrists cock this way, back and forth, so that when they come through they release the club like this. Really we are releasing the club down a lot more. So a great drill is a pre set drill with the wrists. I learned this drill from Ken Venturi, it is actually a pretty old drill, but he had a lot of amateurs work on this when he taught them in order to get the club in great position at the top. It works like this. You put the club right in front of your body and cock the club up right in front of your face this way. Right towards your cap like this. Then turn and swing through and hit. What that does is put your wrists in great shape at the top of the backswing. So I set it, turn, and my wrist is in great shape, the clubface is square at the top, right there. I am not going to explain square to you, just take my word for it, you can see that the clubface is square right here in front of me, I leave that and turn and then hit. You will be surprised at how straight that ball will go and how wonderful the shots that you hit are. I would suggest you first start clipping tees out of the ground. It takes a few shots before you really get the trust for it because it is a little bit different. You might have seen a great player, Ryan Moore, actually play that way in a PGA Tour event and finish pretty well. It is a pretty good drill.

Impact Bag Drills The moment of truth in the golf swing is when the club impacts the ball and using an impact bag will help you get the correct feeling of impact
X-Factor Power Set Up Check the set up angles of your spine, hips, knees and head in order to get into a power position for a power coil and a power swing
Tension-Free Grip A tension filled grip, especially from having the shaft too much in your palms, will kill your entire swing. It stops your wrists from hinging naturally and then works its way up your arms and into your shoulders and locks up your entire swing.
