Ask Brady Riggs Live! Golf Magazine Top 100 Teacher will fix your faults
Golf Magazine Top 100 Teacher Brady Riggs will be online at noon Eastern to help fix your swing. Leave a question in the comments section below.Thanks to everyone for your questions and comments. I am off to the lesson tee. Try to get your videos in next week as they move your question to the top of the list. Have a great week. Randy asks at 12:40:I've
noticed players like Dustin Johnson have a significant amount of wrist
hinge in their backswing (particularly the right wrist for right-handed
players). At what point in the backswing should the wrists begin to
hinge? Any drills for us amateurs? Thanks.Hinging the wrists isn't something you should actively try to do. In a normal address position you already have 45 degrees of angle between the clubshaft and your left arm. A standard amount of hinge necessary at the top is around 90 degrees, leaving only 45 more from the start. If the hands and arms are relaxed going back the weight of the club will hinge your wrists enough to achieve at least 90 degrees. I would stop worrying about this part of the swing and focus more on the clubface, swingpath and pivot.
there a better swing for golfers with lower-back issues. Sean Foley
published an article about a swing he promotes that he believes is
better for the back. Basically turning the left shoulder more down than
around while maintaining the flex in the right knee. What's your
suggestion for someone who played single-digit golf but limited now by
back issues. Thanks
is it I can step up and hit my irons without a long, overdrawn pre-shot
routine. But, when I attempt the same thing with my driver, I get
worse results. Is there a definite DON'T when setting up with the
driver? Thanks in advance.
