Great video, Paul! I used to have my lead hand grip very much in my fingers. Now I know why I had such a cupped wrist! Now that my grip is more underneath my left heelpad, it is a definitely flatter left wrist. I was trying to bow my wrist to help prevent me from shanking my wedges, but I think my shanks came from stopping my rotation in the downswing and hitting with my wrists and arms, losing my angles. Still trying to adopt your body swing motion! Also; should I try to keep my right elbow tucked into my right side throughout the swing??? Thanks for all your help!

No, you would not want you back elbow tucked into your backswing, this would make your backswing too flat. It will go into your side slightly into the downswing, but if you work on the correct positions then you will get this in your swing. Check this out:

Paul – great timing. Everyone watches Dustin and sees pictures of his reverse cup and then is tempted to deviate from the neutral position. Thanks for saving me and others from wasting time trying to emulate another pro.
Thanks for the explanation of cupping or not cupping. I have been gripping in my fingers and have been really inconsistent with my irons and ball striking in general. Now I know why. I have been working with your videos for the last year and have lowered my handicap from 14 to 12. Hopefully with this grip change I can get to single digits!
Good work, keep it up!!
