Maybe your just playing a new sport that forces you to use new muscles!Hi there,
I'm a new golfer (just started playing last summer) and my problem is that my wrists seem weak, especially after about six holes or so. I have thin arms, and I'm not sure if it's my form that's messing me up or if I need to strengthen my arms more.
I've never had terribly strong arms, and my wrists are very thin (no muscle at all!) but I was wondering if there's something I can do to improve this part of my game? My swing isn't that great yet, and I just wonder if my backswing is a little too wild and putting too much pressure on my wrists?
Maybe I'm just a weakling!
I haven't seen your swing, but I highly doubt that it is causing the problem, especailly if both wrists are hurting. It could be that your grip is way out of whack, but I think someone would have noticed and pointed it out to you. If your wrist muscles are stiff and sore, try stretching them out before, during, and after every round.
Play through it. It WILL get better. If you want to do something about it now, you could start lifting weights. All you have to do for forearms and wrists is to hold a dumbell in each hand, palms down, then rotate your wrists up and down slowly. Hope I helped.
P.S. Congrats on taking up golf!
