The wipe is one of the key movement that separates the elite ball strikers from the good ball strikers. It is the start to the release, and without doing it properly, it is hard to have side bend and bracing near impact. The two major areas that control the wipe are the lead elbow bending and the trail wrist radial deviating (hinging more). Those two movements move the club more across the body as opposed to out at the golf ball.
The movement of the arms across the body allows for the side bend without hitting it fat or hooking it and helps create the conditions for the arms to extend through the shot. These are all hallmarks of great ball strikers.
