  1. I have posted about my struggles and want to share this picture. Forgive my attire as I was supposed to be doing my yard work. I filmed a few of my swings and noticed I do not have a flat left wrist at impact. Looks like I am scooping the ball. What are some drills or things to try to stop!

    Does look like you are flipping at impact. What do you feel your wrists are doing in the backswing and downswing?
  3. I have been told I am casting and I feel like I come way over the top.
  4. Your move looks pretty solid but you do seem to be casting a bit. Try holding an alignment stick to extend your shaft and then hit little quarter shots (the alignment sticks won't allow you to make full swings) to get a better feel of how your hands/wrist should be at impact. 

  5. Thank you! I will do this.

    Same thing my PGA teacher/coach tells me when I warm up. These helpful hints are most useful. My tempo gets me in trouble and the right hand takes over. Nice to get helpful tips from staffers in the know. Fortunately my guy and I play together a least once a week. On course is extremely helpful, like having a caddie. Appreciate what you guys do.

    It also looks like you are tilted away at impact. Put a little more weight on you left foot, try to turn on the right leg and not drift your hips back in the back swing. Your left hip is square and should be rotating left at impact. So I would do for that are rotation drill baseball swings.

    Hold the club straight out and swing like you're hitting a baseball and make sure your left hip rotates first then the hands and right hip follows this will help you come into the ball instead of away at impact. Don't swing hard but steady. After 5-10 swings sit the club down address the ball and hit a few to get the feeling in your golf swing and switch back and forth.

    Keep asking great questions and good luck

  8. I like both Alan and Darryl's comments. I do the same thing from time to time. Sometimes the legs get lazy, the left hip doesn't turn and you end up flipping to compensate.

    A simple swing thought: think of pulling the left arm through impact instead of pushing the right.

    Regarding your attire, you might want to switch out that srxn hat for a Titleist lid the next time you post a pic.

    Just saying.....
  9. Yeah I just use it when sweating in the yard. My Titleist hats are saved for the course.
