Physical Parameters Causing Scooping and How to Diagnose Them:
There are many causes of Scooping, and several of them may be physical. Lack of or limited contribution of the lower body in the downswing is usually the primary cause. This causes the upper body to over work and typically breakdown through impact. So lack of lower body power, limited hip mobility and lack of core strength can all lead to Scooping. Any limitations in the wrists or wrist injury can make it difficult to properly release the club through impact. The lead wrist should have good flexion and the trail wrist needs to be able to extend to make a proper release of the club.
