Hi all,

My experience this past few range sessions was that if I consciously and intentional turn my left wrist during the release, I achieve much better results. Gain about 10metres with my 7i, very sweet and more consistent contact, also improvement in dispersion. I am quite amazed at my findings.

After 100 balls I do feel that the left wrist is tired though. Not hurting or strained. Just feels like it has been worked.

Please feel free to share what your experience is.

Thanks.

Be careful, might slowly develop Carpal Tunnel Symptom. I did what you are doing for months and became a casualty.. Have to stop golfing temporary and taking neuroforte daily.

First, I qualify that I'm not a qualified golf professional. Best to ask your coach.


Personally, I think you are going into very dangerous territory. What you are doing is called flipping and will take years to unwind it once you ingrain it into your swing.


Sure, if you time it well, the ball goes further and strike is sweet. But this kind of timing is very unreliable.


Instead, focus on pivot and core body turning into your finish position. Any wrist movement should be natural and not induced.

There is a need to turn your wrist but not too excessively just with the wrist alone. Need to incorporate with the body and swing.

Good luck to your new found secret!

Wrist does help. But better check with a coach before u injured yourself.

For me, i find that there is a need for the wrist to flip-over but the action of "flipping over" comes from the torso and shoulder rotation, as i release the club.

Yes yes......definitely not excessive. Still turning my core and shifting laterally.

Thanks for all the comments. Key is not to get injured.

Does anyone experience hooking when you flip the wrist during release?

If you turn your body, your right forearm will rotate as well upon impact but as what said, it's not intentional and I am still trying to learn to turn properly....

What I found is the roll release.

This is actually very interesting because I watch Sergio Garcia in slow motion (2013) and it doesn't look like he bow his wrist right, i.e. stable release. Did he change his swing sometime?
