I’ve been playing golf for 2 years now and despite regular lessons from qualified pro’s I have struggled to get any consistency in my game.
The first pro I went to always said that I ‘used my hands too much’. His theory was that I should just do a full backswing then basically release the tension and follow through to the finish.
I found this to be too advanced a concept and was unable to incorporate it into my swing.
Rather than ‘release the tension’ I have a tendency to throw the club down the plane with my hands. This feels natural to me, and whilst it generates a lot of power I wonder if it is causing my lack of consistency?
Has anyone here been told that they ‘use their hands too much’? Is this a common error in beginner golf?
What is the established method of starting the downswing?
Thanks in advance.
