Your arms and wrists play a crucial role in keeping your swing on plane and generally controlling the club head throughout the swing.
A common problem for golfers with insufficient wrist strength is that their lead wrist breaks down at impact, dramatically reducing both their distance and accuracy. It also means they have a real problem hitting out of the rough! Without the necessary strength in these muscles, there is a real danger that you will compensate by gripping the club too tightly, introducing unwanted tension that can destroy your rhythm, make squaring the club face more difficult and prevent a powerful release.
Flexibility in the wrists enable you to optimise lag and keep the power accumulators intact well into the downswing. You then need a combination of strength and mobility for a powerful release of the club through impact. Regularly doing the exercises in today’s video could increase your distance by fifteen to twenty-five yards. .
