Right Wrist in the Takeaway
The role of right wrist in the takeaway is often misunderstood and has been the source of much confusion and bad golf swings. In fact, perhaps 90% of the students I see in the first lesson incorrectly use their right wrist during this crucial first phase of the golf swing. Because most golfers are right handed, the right hand tends to dominate the takeaway and put the club in a position where it moves behind the body to early. This gets the club deep and out of sync with the rotating torso and usually creates a very deep position at the top of the swing. In this video, I talk about the specific role of the right wrist and how it gets the club moving back correctly and simply.
- Hinging the right wrist during takeaway causes the club face to close, which steepens the swing plane
- Keep your right wrist neutral during the takeaway
- Somebody standing behind you at takeaway should be able to read your watch
