The role of the hands in the golf swing is an important, yet often misunderstood, concept. Most of what you’ll find in golf instruction literature will focus on the configuration of your hands on the club, and how certain types of grips effect the ball flight, etc. However, the hands do so much more than just grip the club. Now in many instances in golf, more information can be detrimental. As my father once said, a clutter mind always says no. However, with the proper knowledge of how the hands interact with the club, and the rest of the body for that matter, you will find yourself hitting more accurately and consistently when out on the course.
