i can't get a square face at the top of my swing without cupping my wrist or using a weaker grip which leaves me prone to a slice. This is with my fairway woods and driver. Somebody please help?

OJ. Search the golf instruction section and look for FLW. Heaps of info already here to review. From there I'm Sure further questions can be asked then

To get a FLW we need to use the supinator muscles in the target arm in the takeaway. The supinator muscles are the inner bicep and the inner part of the forearm. These are the muscles that make the clubhead go upwards. If you are using the tricep and outside forearm muscles then you are using muscles that make the clubhead go downwards. You will be performing one movement with the arms and its opposite with the wrists relative to the clubhead. Golf is a game of opposites, the opposite to our natural instincts. Instead of rotating the wrists away from the target in the takeaway, the target wrist rotates slightly towards the target and maintains this pressure to the top. Try it in front of a mirror and look at the positions. It takes strength in both wrists and forearms to achieve a FLW with the opposite elbow facing down and close to the body. It is not something that one can learn inside 6 weeks.

FFS. What do you mean that you can't get a FLW? Take a backswing, turn your head and look at the left wrist. If it's not flat, adjust it. Use a school ruler under your watchband as an aid if you must. Don't worry about where the club face is facing, at this point, you're only trying for a FLW. Just keep practising your backswing until you get it. Then you need to practise your downswing to impact, keeping your right elbow tucked in or 'down'. When you have that action right, adjust your grip so that, at impact, the club face is square. Well, that's a start, anyway.

ummm, not sure, line ball call. I guess it would depend if your angular speed lined up with your xyz axis and your impact position backdoored your biomechanical pressure plates. I guess if all those things worked well for you during your backswing, then yeah what the hell, also bring along the ground forces for a hit!
