Setting The Angle During The Golf Swing (Video)
Setting The Angle During The Golf Swing (Video)

Now although we want to be holding the angle during the down swing for as long as possible to actually produce that burst of power, we first of all need to get it set. And that begins with first of all the set up and the actual grip but also the backswing as well. Now to ensure that you're setting the wrist correctly you need to have a good working grip. And the easiest way to get that set correct is to get the club running from the base of the little finger in the left hand to the middle of the index finger wrapping that hand over and having it in the fingers of that hand. And what that will allow you to do, it will allow you to have free motion of the wrists and actually allow you to hinge it up.

The right hand, you just want to be interlocking or overlapping covering that left thumb and again that will enable you to have that hinge in the backswing. Unless your grip is correct and unless it's running through the fingers, you're not going to be able to hinge those wrists correctly and the whole point of this exercise will be for nothing. So you need to make sure first of all that that grip is correct. Now setting the angle during the backswing, what you want to be doing is taking the club away nice and low, nice and wide and that’s one piece take away applying loss of width until about this half way point in the swing. Now see here the shaft is pretty much parallel to the ground, my arm is as well but there is just that slight angle beginning to form. Now from here what I'm going to do is I'm going to continue to set my wrists until the top of the backswing, you can see I have that completed angle at 90 degrees between my arms, my wrist and the shaft. Now you can set that angle earlier, you can set it almost as you get to the top of the swing as late as possible. But whatever happens throughout that back swing let's get the angle set so it's 90 degrees in between the wrist and that shaft. And now let's have a look about how you can actually maintain it through the down swing and deliver that putt of power through the ball.
