Hi there, 

I was reviewing basic fundamentals and my first aha moment came with the grip. 

Now I understand pressure points and their function and in my pre shot  routine I include how I grip the club.

First I grip the club with the left hand. I try to feel the cock and uncock of the left wrist and its pressure point #2 to allow do the job.

Then the pressure point #1 go on its position and try to feel how push the shaft down and how important is to be located on the 

correct position. Finally pressure point #3. For me its location affect how the face is going to be coming into impact.

If at impact the pp #3 is under the shaft the face will be open, the opposite if the pp #3 is more on top of the shaft at impact the face will

be more close. How could neglect something so basic!!!:hmm:

Some time we neglect obvious thing as the grip and it can ruin everything.

So I recommend to improve review basic and try to understand them

and if you can't try to ask to a good golf pro.:beer: 

Good luck this year

I don't know that much about pressure points, but I do know the importance of a good impact position, and how the hands on the club can make, or break that impact position. I tend to spend a lot of practice time getting/keeping my grip where I need it.

My grip is also a big part of my pre-shot routine, as is my alignment. I usually take my grip as I am standing behind the ball figuring out my target line. 

I don't hit my ball target line everytime, but with a good grip, and address/alignment position I can get pretty close more times than not.

On the grip you going to receive pressure by the actions as: The extension of the right arm, the cocking and uncoking the left wrist and the rotation of the left forearm and so on. Where the pressure is received on the grip. Are called pressure points. If they are not  positioned correctly on the grip they can destroy the geometry of the golf swing.

So, Imagine how unconsciously we use to play when we don't know these basic things.Then we complain abut our game doesn't get better.

I know what the PPs are but I don't ask students to know them. I just help them with their grips.

Also, you may be overstating their importance. The game of golf has been played with PPs and grips in very, very different positions. We've even had cross-handed players do very, very well within the game's top ranks.

PPs not matter cross-handed or standard position are PPs. They receive pressure. You can play with one hand or two also with prosthesis. Please don't hide information to your students. That is the same as lie to them. Reason why game fall apart. Lack of knowledge and ability to correct yourself in the middle of the round.

:doh: 

Yeah, that's me… always hiding information from my students. :-P

You should probably spend a little time poking around the site… Might serve you well.

Also, consider that you misread my post. Just because I don't ask my student to know what PP#1 is (or the corresponding accumulator or its action) doesn't mean I don't teach the grip and/or the actions that affect when and where and how the pressure is generated.

This is a long post for something so hard to understand without a diagram. So grip is important - I get that but don't understand much beyond that.

 I guess we could read the 1st chapter in Ben Hogan's book.

I'm sorry, sir, if I offended you, it was not my intention. What kind of punishment would be relevant?

No punishment needed. We all misread posts or aren't fully clear on our posts from time to time.

    • I’m simply sharing the thoughts and perspective of people who’s opinions on the subject seem to be a lot more relevant than yours and mine. I’m not at all embarrassed because you disagree with them.
    • Typhoid Mary never got sick either.
    • You keep digging yourself deeper in the hole dude. I find it pathetic that a white guy from Wisconsin gets so upset about this name change. Move on and stop embarrassing yourself.
    • Does it occur to you that your friend is not the arbiter of what is or isn't appropriate?  He is one man with an opinion. And you seem to think that that trumps anyone else's. You may as well say that I as an Australian, represent everyone in my country and have the final say over anything to do with my country.  Funny how this is similar to you you thinking that Florida is doing great on Covid - but then you'd know, so we'll defer to you, in spite of the numbers and facts. You are passive aggressive and a troll. Actually, I don't think you are a troll. I fear you believe your own simplistic arguments. For your information, the Chief Wahoo image is part of an exhibit at the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia.  
    • You really don’t get it. Not do you realize how dumb statements like that are, apparently, because nobody would make such statements intentionally if they did.
