Rotate your fore arms

Don says you rotate your forearms, not break your wrists. Grip club with your right forearm up, elbow down (seems a strong grip) As you take the club back to what he says is where a catchers mitt would be you just rotate your left & right forearms clockwise (not a break). Then go straight up. Your wrists (he says) are not broke but will look like they are.

If you try this test, you will see he has a point. Grip a club with the right elbow down. Then rotate your forearms. This causes the club to go into an angle with the face wide open. If you partially finish the back swing from here you will have the club at about 90 degrees to your left arm. This is what he means when he says the wrists are not broken.
I too was very skeptical of the claim. I use Dantes early break with a backward wrist break. The appeal of method is not the lack of a wrist break but the claim that one doesn't need a 90 degree turn of the shoulders therefore not much of a hip turn. His personal concern was back injury.
