The forearms, hands and club should be rotating in a counterclockwise motion as you swing down and through the ball. When you do this correctly, the right palm, back of the left hand and clubface will be facing down after impact (above, left).
- Adjust your grip on the club. If your hands aren’t rotating sufficiently during your swing, adjust your grip by shifting your hands clockwise (to the right, for a right-handed player). This type of grip “will encourage your hands to have an aggressive release and turn over through the impact area,” says golf instruction writer Les Miller.
Do you turn your wrists over golf swing?
That makes the swing plane way too flat and forces the player to re-route the club dramatically to even hit the ball. The wrists shouldn’t roll sideways. They hinge by moving up and down. Try this: Hold the club out in front of you, and hinge it upward as if you were going to tap your nose.
How do wrists turn?
We turn the wrist by using the other forearm bone: the radius, which is a smaller bone that widens at the wrist. The radius connects to the upper arm bone at a pivot joint that allows it to rotate while the ulna remains still. When the radius pivots across the ulna, the rest of the forearm moves over.
When should you release your hands golf swing?
Often called casting, this early release occurs when the release starts at the beginning of the downswing. You must maintain the wrist angle and keep the hands in front of the clubhead as you begin swinging toward the ball. Failure to do so will result in poor contact and inconsistent results.
