Yes, we are trying to maintain this setup angle during the backswing, and back down into and through impact*. Watch The duplessisgolf Setup (in the setup section). Some of my students let their front wrist raise up a bit at setup and some don’t and are both successful.

BTW, the shaft of the golf club bends down through impact raising the wrists up a bit due to inertia anyway.

* Many golfers feel the need to hinge so they can throw the club head at the ball for more power. Hinging and throwing causes many problems. If you learn to maintain the setup position on the backswing and back through impact you’ll be much more successful with solidness and direction.
