Hinging your wrists in the back swing is essential for gaining extra distance and hitting it straight.

This wrist hinge drill is easy to try at home or on the range.

Many of us suffer with a bowed wrist in the backswing when we first start playing golf, and this can make it much harder to hit the ball.

Trying to hit the ball just using your left hand can feel a bit weird, but it will really help you can get the hang of hinging your wrists properly.

Give it a go!
