What does the right hand do in the golf swing, particularly through the hitting area, for a right handed golfer? It's a very common beginning golfer question and one that is imperative that you fully understand. The answer in this golf instruction video may surprise you!
The reality is that the right hand is actually the culprit of many if not most golf swing faults in most amateur golfers! Yep, that's right, your right hand is probably doing more harm than good! But why?
Well, the answer is quite simple really and goes back to this golf physics lesson I gave that makes it quite clear regarding pushing vs pulling. Once you watch that video, your perspective of the golf swing will likely change and you will finally begin to understand why you've struggled so much with accuracy in the golf swing.
Physics in the golf swing can't be ignored. No, you don't need to become a mad scientist to play great golf, but you do need a very basic understanding of what's happening and the forces at work so that you can understand how to properly and more simply release the golf club.
In this golf instruction video, you'll see just how much easier it will be for you to square the club face and swing it on plane and even have a tour quality impact position, just by learning exactly what your right hand should do through the release, so take a look!
The golf swing makes a little more sense now, no? You just learned that by holding on tightly and trying to hit with the right hand you're inhibiting the release of the golf club! Even though it feels like you're swinging fast, the reality is that you're putting a lot of unnecessary effort into the swing and not getting the payoff.
This is one of the main things the tour pros do that you probably don't that makes their golf swings look so effortless and most amateur's swings look like they're swatting at a bobcat.
