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?

My best swing produces a high draw, but every round I have swings where my driver hits the ground first, causing the club to snap shut and I hit a DISASTROUS low duck-hook! What causes this drop-kick and how do I correct it?

Hi Bobby,

Really enjoyed your videos and all the information. I have a question about release. Do you prefer an active release using aiming point, or do you prefer a float loading action, where in effect you never try to release; it just occurs naturally?
