Wrist Cock Drill

Wrist Cock Drill

You are stuck in the office, you have not gotten out to the golf course in a long time, you are even trying to imagine what it feels like to swing a golf club. I am going to give you a great tip you can do inside the office, either behind closed doors, or let everybody see it, because this one is so good that you are going to want to share it with your friends. We have been together and we have talked about pressure points in the grip. We have talked about the importance of a flat left wrist as being imperative at impact and throughout your impact position. What I am going to do I am going to tell you with no club, again you are in the office, take your posture and put your left hand down, get your index finger out because you are going to bring your right hand in underneath and hook that first finger. What we have right here is, and I am going to show you it from different angles, but there is a nice flat wrist and notice that I am hooking this finger around pressure point number three right here. What I am going to do from this position is I can practice my backstroke, notice I can not go too long, if I go very long I am going to break my left arm, I am going to cup the wrist. I want to get in here, and I will show you from down the line, with this grip here, this little practice drill, see how that left wrist is flat, right wrist is bent. Look at how it comes back in on the downswing, see how my elbow is down and in a good position. I am coming right back here, wow, I am in that great flat wristed forward position. Notice the right wrist is bent the left wrist is straight and I feel that lag pressure point number three as I turn right through the ball. Great, great drill. All you snowbirds, all you people that are stuck in the office, put these two hands together, get in here and practice that golf swing.
