Anyone had pain in their wrist/top of hand when driving? Been crushing some nice long drives (draws of course :p ) but some pain is creeping in on my right hand after these drives. Any idea what it's from? Or could be from?

You're waaayyy too young to begin having aches and pains!!! If I were guessing, I'd say you've dug a club into the ground and sprained the wrist. The driver swing tends to be somewhat longer/flexes the wrist more than the swings with shorter clubs. They make some pretty inexpensive wrist bands/supports that can be picked up at local drugstores. Might try one of those for a while and just give it some time to heal.

That's a good point Limp. Matty are you a picker or digger?

Yeah it only flares up when I'm using the driver. Irons I've never had an issue with this pain.
I can only think that my right hand/wrist has too much to do with the impact and post impact than it should, causing excessive tension and stress somehow.
This morning it's a bit worse, pain bending the wrist back and forward now. Pain is definitely the tendons on the top of my hand.

Sounds like you're speaking from experience.
I have no idea what you're talking about.
