When playing the most successful golf of their careers, players often talk about the sense of relaxation that they have within their game and the fact that they can feel the golf club do what they want it to. That feeling and that relaxation in the hands with the golf club is very, very important. It is not very often that you find a player who grips on to the club very, very tightly who plays consistently good golf.

Arnold Palmer is the big opposite of this, he used to grip the club very, very tightly but generally speaking most players play their best golf when they hold the club in a nice relaxed manner and they have a very good sense of feeling of the club head within their hands as well. if you can get the sensation and the feeling within the hands of the club head you will have more control. When the hands are more relaxed, you can feel distances better, you can shape balls better and you also have a greater command of how far that you swing the club. As added bonus, if you can keep the club relaxed or keep the hands relaxed and keep the grip relaxed you also have the option of hitting the ball further. It is one of the key slightly odd things with golf that if you grip the club lighter and you don’t put as much effort in, generally speaking you will be able to hit the ball further. And that’s what this video series is all about, take you through these key fundamental points and how you can apply them to your game to hopefully improve your ball striking, your distance and also your relaxation and hopefully with a few things around the green as well.
