    I have noticed that i can grip the club tightly to very tightly and my wrists are still nice and loose and i still can hit decent shots
    i find if i grip the club loosely the shaft comes away slightly from my left hand at top of backswing
    What are your views on this?

  2. Hi Paul,

    This is my second month after I switch to your method. I am very thankful for your instruction and tips. Even if I am a weekend golfer with limited practice time, I already gained 10-15 yards for each iron club. My 7 iron was for my 150 yard, but now I hit it for 160-165 yards. At the same time, I am seeing the consistency.

    From the day one, the grip was and still is the most difficult thing to change because I used to have a finger grip on my left (I am a right handed golfer) and I preferred the tight feeling on my hands. I believe that must have locked up my arms and wrists along with my upper body driven swing style (I was from 1 plane swing method).

    I have seen a quite bit of improvement on my driver, also. (Especially, I am not worried about my duck hook or push at all anymore.) But I was still struggling in consistency. A couple of days back, I focused on gripping when I practiced. I tried to get an extreme feeling that my left hand barely touches the handle and wraps around it. The feel was that the grip was too loose and my hands couldn’t control the driver at all. However, that was when I started hitting the ball further and straighter consistently. It is like when I give up my hands’ control, I gain the control.

    In a nutshell, your method has been improving my golf tremendously. I will keep working on it.
    Thanks again.


    • Kwangsoo,

      That’s great news. I love hearing about improvement. It never gets old.

      The grip is one of the toughest changes. People give up on it instead of fighting through it. The grip is your connection to the club. Put in on in a weak (1 knuckle) or strong (3knuckle position) it will take the ball offline. You then need another flaw to get it back online. Now you have 2 flaws. Just see the hands and wrists as a hinge. The grip must be secure but the wrists loose. The club hinges then re-hinges. That is all it doing. If you are hampering this action that is not going to work very well. You will lose power and consistency. So don’t see your hands as hands. It is a hinging unit. No matter how bad it feels you need to get used to it. You’ll get it. Just stick with it.
