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.

Pitching and Chipping Pitching and chipping is just a smaller version of the full swing. Maintain your triangle you create a set up and allow for some body movement
Slice Cause: Steep Swing Taking practice swings holding the club at waist lever, allowing yourself to feel the rotation of your shoulders, arms and the clubface
One-Plane Backswing Make sure to keep your right elbow behind your body during the backswing so that the left arm can continue to cross your chest and stay on the same plane as your shoulders.
