"Pushing down on the handle" is just one way of describing how one c0cks their wrists. Clubshaft moves upwards in the vertical dimension during takeaway swing segment due to that motion. It is often described as one way to cure the death move of too inside the plane. But that inside move is mainly caused by improper use of the arms - NOT failure to c0ck the wrists properly in vast majority of golfers. The issue is the in/out dimension relative to the target line and to the shaft plane angle itself. Wrists play a role in the takeaway that I teach, in that I like to see near immediate start of the c0cking process at beginning of takeaway, and the c0cking 50% done by end of takeaway.
You are blending the in with the up by all three systems: upper arms pushing away, pivot of the body and wrist c0cking/hinging.
Folks who use their arms to create the "in" instead of their Pivot have the ASI problem.
Do not pull your arms in closer to your body - do the opposite. Push them away from your chest as your chest turns, 4-8" by end of takeaway.
