Peter, where do you get your knowledge of golf physics? Clubhead inertia will tend to cock the wrist, not bend it. If anything the outward pull of inertia will flatten the wrist. Bending the wrist comes from golfers trying to square the clubface for impact.

The clubface closes from cupping the wrist. Why do most amateurs try to close the clubface for impact by throwing the clubhead in front of the hands and bending the left wrist?
