Do you start the backswing with a wrist cock, or do you take the club back in one piece?  

Well, some players do, and some players don’t, so it depends on your instructor’s philosophy.  Johnny Miller and Hubert Green both started their backswing with a quick wrist set, Jack Nicklaus started back with a very little wrist set at the start.  My philosophy is simple, use the big muscles to generate power and eliminate the small muscles in the golf swing to improve accuracy.

Here I describe why I teach a “no wrist cock” backswing and how to master it! There is actually a wrist cock; you just do not do it consciously. The “secret is in the grip pressure.”
