Thanks for this tip. Very simple and effective.

Glad you liked it. Thanks.
I haven’t played out there. I just checked out the aerial view. Yes, looks great. By all account our clubhouse is exactly the same. Maybe some day I will get out there. Too humid though.

Excellent drill ,Paul ..
Will you show when you start hinging the wrists ?

Paul…on the takeaway…hinging and re hinging wrists should be automatic as you are going back…am I correct?
For the takeaway I am not doing anything but moving the letter why back intact to the right leg. My wrists are certainly not tight.
As you go to the top and down and through all of this would and should happen because your wrists are loose and grip is secure but for most people their wrists are way too tight so they have to work on setting the top and keep them loose int he down and through swing.
All I am doing is moving from setup to takeaway. Takeaway to halfway back. From there the momentum of the club swinging back starts to hinge my wrists. In no way am I trying to hinge them because I worked on hinging them year ago. My thought is to be loose so they hinge on their own but again this doesn’t start until halfway back.

Great drill! I am constantly working to slow down. I find that when I do go slow, the takeaway is nearly always correct. Since one fixed the other, might the reverse be true. If I do this drill when I swing, it would appear to automatically slow me down.
Also, could this drill also be used on the course while hitting real shots? It seems to automatically put one into a nice backswing tempo.
Give it a try on the course. Like I said in a previous answer 2 syllable word going back 1 coming down. Tiiiiggggeeerrrr Woods. Why would you go back faster than what you are saying it?

I still can’t get my wrists to hinge and unhinge correctly…..I can do it in practice, but then when I go to hit a ball, they are not fully hinged, and the swing in short.
So you are trying to hit the ball too hard with your arms. Why not do it slowly. Better to do it right at 1 mph then wrong at 100mph. Get it slowly and build it up. Too many people want to do everything at top speed when they are not good at it. So forget hitting long, amazing shots for now. Get the position. Get the position and you get the ball (in the future).

Paul how does this video relate to the pitching videos where you purposefully start the backswing by hinging right from the start?
May 6, 2020
This video would be for the full swing, pitching is different. Pitching is a smaller swing, so you would want to start hinging sooner to make sure you set the hinge. If you didn’t hinge right away with pitching then you would not be able to get the angle between the golf club and wrists need to hit the shot. You want to be working on the backswing going slow and this will help you achieve the positions. Also, if you didnt hinge with your pitchig then you would be chipping.
