Question

If the left wrist is flat at impact, why is it bent at setup?

Bobby’s Answer

I get this question a lot.  “How can the lead wrist be flat at impact, but bent when we address the golf ball.  There’s an advantage to it.  The bent lead wrist at setup gives us the ability load the club during the backswing, which is Dynamic #3. 

So yes.  You can have a bent lead wrist at setup, and flat lead wrist at impact.

  1. I have a hard time reaching a 4 inch swing bottom. I notice in your videos that when you get the club to parallel with the target line, it looks like the handle, and your hands, are out in front of the 4 inch swing bottom. Is that true?

  2. Ok!!! So what’s going on with the left wrist on the down swing if it’s cupped at the top of the backswing??

  3. Where does the 4-inch divot occur when attempting to hit a draw or a fade? Does the divot go to the right when hitting a draw or to the left when hitting a fade?

I have been pulling my shots way to the left of target. My ball placement is fairly even with my left heel. If I weaken my grip a little, I tend to push the shot to the right. I use a fairly neutral overlap grip with my swing speed of 94 mph.
