PostSubject: Cocking of wrist   Wed Jul 21, 2010 10:11 pm

I am having some problems with the above mentioned. My cocking is kind of unnatural and i tend to top the ball.... Mad

Would this video be useful ?

Or is there any tip / drill that i can do to ensure i don't cock my wrist too early or what ?

may i suggest to seek some professional coaching/help?

most of us here are amateurs... i can't even break 90 consistently, so i won't attempt to give any advise.
likewise, while no one means any harm, but u can consider taking any friendly help, tips or or advise given by
others with a pinch of salt...

learning from a coach is hard enough face to face, let alone learning through a forum or reading a sentence

I like this drill but I use a slightly modified version of it. After the initial cocking, I then bring the club around to the parallel to target position. Take the club upwards from there and hit. He is right about the tension in the arms and hands. This tensions can be reduced by having the correct wrist angles and arm geometry. Best to check with a pro as lennylim has mentioned

Biggest fear is my style will merge and produce a crappy swing..!

Wahahaha...

Thanks for sharing bro "stricker"..

Dun worry robert, you are not alone.

Me dun cock wrists for pitching and chipping too even though my coach been trying to get me to do it!

Then again, maybe that's the key to improving my short game!
