This question is from one of my students and will help you.
You suggest constant grip pressure throughout the swing. How strong a grip do you suggest on a scale 1 very loose to 10 strong grip?
Yes constant grip pressure. I think 3 on a scale from 1-10. 3 allows the momentum to automatically hinge the wrists correctly (square). If too tight you will not hinge, or worse use your hands to actively hinge incorrectly. One other thing about too tight, it tenses up your shoulders and restricts them from turning freely. Hold the club just tight enough that the club does not flop.
If you become aware of grip pressure and not let the hands take over, your body will take over and use theto control your swing… Use your front shoulder to push the and club to the top of the backswing, then start the downswing using the hips/thighs to unwind pulling the and club back down in front of the body, as your turn pulls your and club around to finish facing the target. You will know if you are totally up on your back toe with knees touching and you are balanced… Ross
