Most players have a quest for more distance, but sometimes they go about it the wrong way. Anytime the lead wrist moves into extension too early and the shaft backs up in the downswing, golfers will add dynamic loft to the club at impact. Everyone is different in regards to how much lag they need, but the fact remains that if you tend to “flip” the club at the bottom, you will continue to have spin lofts and spin rates that are too high. Translation: you won’t hit iron shots as far as you could.
Some of these moves can return the club shaft to “vertical” at impact, which is not a bad thing, but too much flip and not enough lag will cause a loss of compression and distance. That’s not what any golfer wants. The fix is to make sure your pivot is driving the arms, hands, and club through impact. Whenever the pivot is faulty, you will also see poor impact alignments.
Tip 1: Try to hit some balls with a ball position backwards in
your stance with only halve swings
Tip 2: Start the downswing with the right sequence - first legs and body followed by arms and club
Tip 3: Try to rotate your upper body active as in pitching with the idea that arms and hands follow passive without loosing the tension there.
Have fun practicing and if you need help let me know.
