Golfers often are confused by the positioning their wrist should take at the top of their backswing.
With conflicting suggestions regarding the position of their wrist in the backswing, some swear by a cupped position, while other golfers attest to the benefits of a flat wrist, and some will only play with their wrists bowed.
The varying opinions on wrist positioning at the top of the backswing has led many instructors and golf professionals into heated arguments, with the verdict out on which method serves as the absolute best way to flex your wrist at the top of a golf swing.
Much of the discussion focuses on the trail wrist, which serves little to know purpose at the top of the swing, being that the absolute greatest golfers to ever play the sport have little in common when it comes to the positioning of their trail wrist.
Anyone that studies the PGA Tour Pros will recognize many patterns in their golfing techniques that closely resemble each other, but this does not translate to the positioning of the trail wrist at the top of the average professional backswing.
Golf instructors typically train their juniors and general golf students to draw the golf club backward through the use of the player’s shoulders and arms, with their wrists hinging organically as the shaft parallels towards the turf.
In this way, golfers are not making a conscious effort to maneuver their wrists into a hinged position, preventing their wrists from stiffening out in the process
Despite this being the prevailing teaching among most golf coaches, some trainers have begun promoting a wrist hinge method that sees the wrists set in an 90 degree angle between the trail arm and shaft of the golf club, which the golfer holds to the the top of their backswing.
The vast majority of golfers that are practitioners of this method typically position their golf club in a way that allows their hands to maintain a parallel level with their waistline.
Players are also mindful to line up their shaft to the ground, as the toe aims upward into the sky above.
Maintaining a position that restricts the shaft of the golf club to placement below the hands, many golfers will experience stiff wrists.
Conversely, if the club extends upward in excess, the wrists will likely cock up too much, also causing a problem in the backswing.
While golf has few absolutes regarding the way a player’s wrists bend at the top of the backswing, golfers must determine what works for them and the best method to replicate effectiveness in their golf swings.
First, golfers must recognize and understand that the movements in our wrists during every part of our golf swing have a direct impact on whether or not we execute properly.
Lacking well composed flexion in our wrists, especially when executing our backswing, will force golfers to compensate in other elements of the swing, ultimately causing a missed shot that lands off target
Often put on the back burner by many novice golfers and those still honing their golfing skills, the way we move our wrist during our swing lacks in awareness to most players because our eyes do not see this movement while executing a swing.
There are three distinct common positions that our wrists take during a typical golf swing which include cupping, the act of making a cup shape with our forearm and the back of our hand.
