Fixing a bowed left wrist



Stefano Costigliolo

Q: For many years I've been affected by a bowed left wrist at the top of my backswing, getting worse during the transition. Can you please explain to me which could have been the origin and what would be the cure for that problem?

 

A: A bowed left wrist is also the equivalent of an extremely bent right wrist. Most likely as you take the club away from the ball, the club head goes inside to quickly, behind the hands to early, and the right wrist bends back to much, many times making the club face close. Try the feeling of keep the right wrist flat through the swing, that will probably help.
