Managing Wrist Movements in Different Swing Types by James Leitz

One of the hardest things to repeat even for a tour player is club face alignment. Face is what sends the tour player home on Friday. Wrist alignments are what controls the face. The downswing takes only around 1/4 second, so you really don’t have time to fix improper wrist alignment. That is why it is so important to get the wrist alignments correct early. Using Hackmotion Wrist Sensor’s data you can quickly analyze wrist alignments and fix them.

Watch the video below where James Leitz (Golf Magazine Top-100 PGA Teaching Professional) explains importance of club face control in detail (22 min)

Extension(+)/Flexion(-)

Radial(+)/Ulnar(-) Deviation

Rotation Open(-)/Closed(+)

HackMotion Wrist Terms:

  • Flexion (-)/Extension (+) (green line) = Bowing/Cupping of the lead wrist
  • Radial(+)/Ulnar (-) deviation (blue line) = Cocking/Uncocking of the lead wrist
  • Rotation (purple line) = Global Rotation relative to address, Closing clubface (+) /Opening clubface (-)

Topics discussed in James’s presentation:

  1. The 4 laws in golf. Everything else is optional.
  2. Need for transition movement which complements top of the backswing
  3. Not all wrist alignments work. For example, slow pivot and strong grip do not work together
  4. Types of bad wrist conditions and how to fix them
 

Steps to Change Wrist Conditions:
    1. Explain wrist terms to student
    2. Move wrists properly without the club
    3. Add club with no ball
    4. Exaggerate the feel
    5. “Your Eyes are on the Ball and your Mind is in your hands”
    6. Add the ball
