If your struggle with when and how to hinge your wrists, here is a drill to help you learn how to start  your swing.

Wrist hinge should happen naturally in the golf swing. If your grip is in a neutral position,the wrists will be able to fully hinge as you swing the club back to the top. There is no exact spot where you are supposed to hinge your wrists. Some players set their wrists very early in the swing and others create the hinge later in the swing. Most high- handicappers go wrong when they have no wrist hinge and have to end up hinging their elbows instead to get the club to the top.

Wrist Hinge Drill Variation-
  1. Set-up in your normal golf stance.
  2. Swing the club back and let the weight of the club hinge the wrists naturally.
  3. At about the halfway back point in your swing, your club and forearms should form a right-angle. Hold position for a moment.
  4. Return to start position.
  5. Do 8 to 10 repetitions.
