    this grip feels ultra secure at the top, very uniform. When i get to the top of the back swing and hinge, it feels like the club is on a spring, which is created by the grip, and then when it gets into that “V” it feels like a secure spring ready to fire down. This is with a 2 out of 10 grip pressure, too. Is this the right feeling? as soon as i feel the spring i start my hips and the hands and arms seem to fall with no effort whatsoever. Hitting mostly more solid shots than others . Is this the right feeling? the spring? Also, As you grip the club during your setup are you pushing your hands on top of each other so that, other than the trigger finger, your knuckles are as close as possible to one another? Thanks, getting closer everyday to greatness.

      Jason,

      Very good. It should feel secure. The grip starts at 2 out of 10 increasing to 8 out of 10 by the time hit the top. If you don’t increase it will be too loose and you will most likely let go of the club. While the grip is secure the wrists should be loose.

      It feels like a spring because you are actually letting the club fully hinge at the top. I would bet you have always been too tight. When you are too tight your club is too vertical at the top. Once you let it hinge fully this feeling disappears after about 2 weeks and it will keep hinging forever.

      The hands are molded on the club together. I am not really pushing anything. I am wrapping the right hand onto the left closing any gaps. Just check out some more grip tips if you need help with hand placement. Actually this tip would be good:
