    How do you flex the wrist and keep it in the correct position? The first swing is mine to a T.

    1. Andy

      If you check in the Open Club Face swing faults you will find some drills in there to help keep the wrist more flexed.

      1. Matt

        Thanks. Andy! You’ve improved my game so much. I’m really knocking that small white ball around the fields.

        1. Andy

          It’s a pleasure Matt. Glad we are helping.

    I’m struggling matching up this tip with the video that Andy recently did on creating the “L” shape through your backswing. Should the right wrist hinge more to create the “L”? Thanks guys!

    1. Andy

      Hi Jason. The right wrist bends back as if you are a waiter holding a tray of drinks. Your left wrist hinges up vertically. Does that makes sense?

      Thanks

      Andy

      1. Jason Micewicz

        That makes perfect sense. This has really helped my ball striking. Thanks!

        1. Andy

          Brilliant Jason! Happy this helped.

          Thanks

          Andy

    The “Waiter holding a tray of drinks” works perfectly! I’m a lefty, so it takes me a bit longer to switch and make the connection. Surprised how many people don’t understand the flat wrist concept. …

    1. Andy

      Yes another great drill to square up the club face. Glad this was useful for you.

      Thanks

      Andy
