It is a FACT that ninety percent or more of bad shots are due to bad golf swing wrist action. This mistake is so common because it feels natural to control the club with the hands and this action leads to the breaking of the wrists.
There are two directions that the wrists can move during the golf swing. These two directions are forward/backward and up/down. The forward and backward movement of the wrists leads to unwanted breaking of the wrists. The up and down movements of the wrist are known as cocking the wrists to many teachers.
These movements are the reason that your grip on the golf club is so important. If you have a faulty grip on the club you encourage yourself in the bad habit of breaking wrists. If you are gripping the club correctly you will not have to learn this up and down hinging.
If your left arm is in the correct position during the swing the hinging of your wrists will be automatic. If your legs are moving forward while your club is still traveling backwards this will force your wrists to hinge.
To make sure that this hinging action in your wrists happens with every swing, you will want to keep the left wrist flat in relation to the back of your left forearm and the back of your left hand. If your left arm is correctly positioned your wrists will automatically hinge.
If your arm is not correctly positioned there will be the breaking motion instead of the hinging. Even though your wrists are so important to the swing you do not want to attempt to cultivate any independent wrist motion. You want to be as natural as possible with your golf swing wrist action.
Doing something as simple as swinging the club back farther than your shoulder can lead to the breaking wrists motion. With a motion like this it is more like a throwing motion than a fluid swinging motion.
