Hammer It!

In relating how the hand & wrist work to create power..I like to use the comparison to how the hand/wrist work to create power when using a hammer.

 Think of driving a nail with a hammer…large nails into lumber…if you grip it tightly and tense up your wrist you will only have power from your arm and shoulder…

if you keep the wrist  loose & grip light it allows the hammer to accelerate in the same manner we want the club to accelerate.

 Also notice how much more powerful your wrist is if slightly cocked…let you left arm hang, now point you thumb down (weak)..now have you thumb point to your front (strong).
