Anybody have a straight left wrist at the top of your backswing - noticed mine was very 'cupped' especially when swinging hard and have tried to keep this straight - feels weird and everythings going leftish but I think it's meaning I'm not having to be so handsy at impact (odd hook or push)

I had a bowed wrist at the top of my backswing, I just had to move the thumb further to the left on my grip which has straightened it out.

Was everything going right before you made the change? I often suffer from an open clubface at impact and find that keeping the left wrist straight can help straighten things out.

PS- welcome back! OK

Do you have any images of your left wrist at impact? Far more important...

Not really, I think over the years I have used innate athleticism (ha!) to close the clubface using my hands at the last minute. This is fine when timing it well but awful if not. It's something I noticed a mate doing and after thinking about it seemed to make sense...
