#4 Flat Wrist Back-Swing: A cupped or bowed wrist on the gloved hand at the top of the back-swing causes inconsistent hits. For straight shots with controlled trajectory your gloved hand should remain in-line with the flat of your arm. A flat wrist keeps your club face square to the arc of the swing plane and makes it easier for you to square the club face at impact.
#5 Takeaway Lag Trainer: We have now moved the Wrist Lag Trainer Position to the front of your trailing upper arm for more stability. (You can also train for lag placing the curved end of the plastic plate against the back of your leading arm thumb or against the upper part of your trailing arm. These options are only used if you have a very large bicep)We call this the “Takeaway Lag Trainer” because you need a wide takeaway with BOTH arms straight until your club is horizontal to the ground. This forces your chest to rotate. We learned this fromMichael Breed on the Golf FIX show [Golf Channel] when he pointed this out as the reason forAdam Scott’s powerful drives. As your club continues to rise, bend your trailing elbow 90 degrees (to feel the rubber EXTENDER press on your lower arm as you pull your leading wrist to 90 degrees. Holding this lag angle at the start of your downswing gives you more power and distance in your hits.) #6 Limited Wrist Lag Chipping: Swing Fix #3 is for chipping with GOLFSTR+ on your LEADING wrist to prevent cupping of the wrist in the follow-through. Another use when chipping is to place GOLFSTR+ on your trailing arm to allow wrist lag as you swing into contact with the ball. Allow the wrist to bend back at the same angle as the bent end of the plastic plate. Then follow through with a flat leading wrist. Leading with your hands will allow you to make a more consistent impact and also give you better directional control with your hit. Phil Mickelson calls it “hinge and hold”.
