This video golf lesson will help you avoid the dreaded overswing. A lack of flexibility in the wrist is the primary cause of overswinging.
The ability to easily hinge the wrist is an essential component of a successful swing. It is also important to turn the shoulders and to have a good spine tilt behind the ball.
The practice drill in this video involves taking several short backswings in order to set up the position of the arms throughout the swing and also to get the proper hinge of the wrist. This practice will lead to greater distance and more consistency in your shots.
