Paul, I tried some of your drills out today. I am in my 70’s and have always went half ways back to swing. Today, I decided to go all the way back and presto, my wrists rolled automatically because I hinged them more going back. On the downswing, I concentrated on keeping my left arm straight and moved by hips first. My ball went straight and a little further. I do not hit the ball 200 yds. Hitting it straight is fine.
I like hearing Presto. I can’t believe your swing was still short after all of this time. Going back farther gives you more time to roll it. See how important it is now? Plus, you have more time to increase clubhead speed.
This is a huge breakthrough. Keep at it.

I am guessing I would be rolling my hands as I practice; not as I am playing? What should I do when I am playing, if I slice the ball?
Yes, you are rolling in practice. If you roll on the course you will hit big hooks out of bounds left which will get you in a lot of trouble. So before you hit your shot roll it 5-10 times. Then when you hit your shot you are thinking coil (shoudlers) uncoil (legs). The roll over drill unlocks your wrists and gets you releasing it. If you are slicing it this needs to be you number 1 drill until you rarely every put slice spin on it. At this point you are working your body. It’s really not that hard to roll it. If you can’t do it at top speed do it at half speed. Get good at it then go faster. Remember this feeling of rolling it as you start thinking legs and hips to straighten it out.

This is good!
My worst shots are out and out slice when I get tense and lock up my wrists, especially on the first tee shot on rounds that matter and also on subsequent shots if my first tee shot was awful. I knew to roll over way early to cure slices but I found it difficult to do so in an actual swing when I care about the result of my shot.
Doing this a few times before the actual swing really loosened up the wrists and I am finding that I can choose to reproduce the feeling during the actual swing which usually results in a straight (& slight) pull shot for me or if I choose to not consciously activate my wrists then the shot is a mild fade. I can live with those because I know what I will be getting.
So good advice. Thanks.

Right, you are doing the roll over on the range to master the release. You then add body to straighten it out. On the course you are rolling it before every shot. Then whey you step up to your shot you are thinking body NOT roll. You watch your ball and determine if you need more roll or more body. If you still have not mastered the roll over you need to be doing this at home every night. Roll it thousands of times if you have too. This is a huge part of the swing. Once you have it master you are only every thinking body into the future. So start doing nightly roll overs at home precisely until you can do it.

In doing this drill while watching your tip, I find that I’ve been relying on only my right wrist for the “roll” – by doing the drill and activating roll with both wrists at same time makes a whole lot of difference. Make sense?
One more outcome concentrating on use of “both wrists” is that the “swoosh” is amplified greatly. Wow… that can’t be bad??
Good. Keep doing it.
Sure, you can do it however works best. I just need it to roll.
