Trail Wrist Unhinging

I am a big fan of using the "unhinge" as one of the key shallowers in the golf swing. Unfortunately, a lot of golfers will retain the angle of the lead wrist for far too long into the downswing; this can cause a whole host of issues related to consistency, low-point control, etc.

Usually, I will focus on the lead wrist when discussing this concept, but focusing on the trail wrist can be just as helpful. In terms of mechanics, you will want to use the same timing as before and work on combining the unhinge with a bit of the "motorcycle" and "wipe". If you want to take it a step-further, the unhinging of the trail wrist will need to come from supination; this will allow you to keep the extension of the wrist and still shallow the club.

Ultimately, combining these mechanics with your lead wrist work, will create a more cohesive feel and hopefully, more of a "tour" release when it comes time to make some full swings.
