Pressure on the grip
Q: Please please tell me the mystery of the pressure on the grip. I heard left hand only hits the ball. How much does the right hand play through the swing . I tried to keep equal pressure with both hands. Is this correct?
Good question....A more upright two-plane swing with the arms swinging up and down in front of you features a dominant left arm/hand. Conversely a flatter, one-plane swing with the arms swinging more around you requires using the right arm/hand to hit the ball. Hogan claimed he wished he had two right hands. I would adjust my grip pressure to one hand or the other depending upon your swing style.
