Shallowing the shaft in the downswing can help stop slice and pull shots, while also increasing distance. In this video, I show you how to shallow the shaft in the downswing. I also look at the specific movements of ulnar deviation, wrist flexion and pronation to see how they can help different golfers shallow out their swings.

    Once DS has begun, there is insufficient time for golfers to make a conscious change to the movement,once DSis begun.

    To know where the club and hands are in real time during the DS is not possible.

    ie there is time for one thought before the DS begins. Choose wisely!

    The problem doesn’t originate in the lead hand wrist…. the problem is a protruding bellly that will interfere with a shallowed club handle. The big bellly causes a blocking of hip rotation because you can’t sling all that weight into followthru without shearing your spine!!!

    It would have been good to mention that a proper pivot can do this without worrying about the wrists.

      Yes… because you must swing over the top to avoid hitting your big bellly with the club handle if you shallow out the club.

      Cheers RJ,

      Agree a proper pivot, with body turn squaring the clubface is the answer.
      IF we allow the wrists to be free hinges,hands leading the clubhead, with a proper pivot, we are ‘side on’ at impact.
      ie no need to clear a fat gut. It all comes down to a PROPER PIVOT.

Yes, you heard me, one of the best drills we have is the battering ram drill. It is awesome for getting the relationship between body turn and arm swing correct, and improving your impact conditions. Enjoy the video, and hope this helps!
