(To answer Femgolf1 question above)… Your “front” arm or “left” for a right hander should be straight at setup… stay straight (if possible) throughout the backswing and back down into impact position. Many golfers bend their front arm slightly at the top of the backswing, then straighten it back out before impact. This is okay, but is just one more variable to worry about. A flat to bowed-out front wrist throughout the backswing into impact, is also the most reliable position (I believe). I think cupping the front wrist at setup, or at the top of the backswing, to be the cause of many problems, because it will need to be flat or bowed out by impact… it is too unreliable (and has no benefit).
