Video Golf Tip | Hands Control the Clubhead

Probably the most important thing that I can tell you about playing golf is to learn to control the clubhead. Our only union with the golf club is through the hands and we need to establish a relationship with the clubhead that allows our hands to know what the clubhead is doing in motion. What I want to see is the palms of the hand matching up with the leading edge of the club. I am demonstrating this with my right hand matching the leading edge also the left palm would be the same way. The club will fall across the left hand at a 45 degree angle and it will fall across the right hand at a 45 degree angle. What we have as we hold the club, my wrist angle is totally natural and my hands are in a very natural position. If I were to drop the golf club from my hands and my hands fell to my side you can see that I have not arched, turned or twisted my hands at all and I have established a relationship with the clubface. So since my hands have been on my arms my whole life I start to have a sense of what the clubhead is doing in motion. You get a better sense of how your hands relate to the clubhead, and you are going to get a better sense of how to control or shape your golf shot. Practice this, it is really important.
