    What confused me about this one is that he continues the handle. Where does one stop the grip related to the body? Certainly not 18″ in front… There’s no release here?

    Homer Kelley in his seminal book The Golfing Machine identified the action of the right hand as Pressure Point #3 which is located at the palm side of the index finger. PP#3 is applied to the club handle from the Top of Swing throughout the downswing all the way into Impact in the Endless Belt event. Homer was a genius and Alistair and the rest of the golf instruction field is catching up to.

      Don’t waste your time posting swing explanations. This is a d!ckhead gearhead website forum where adolescent boys slobber over golf toys. Haven’t your figured that out?

    If this right hand placement video affects your game it is 100% spot on. Have not even tried it yet but I have struggled with the role and placement of the right hand for years. As soon as I began watching the video l realized my incorrect right hand grip. Thanks so much. Just tried it,what a completely different feeling. Was always “flippy” at the top, instantly cured that and feels much more solid and powerful through contact.

      Your right hand has been ‘neutralized’ with the new grip. The wrong pressure has been eliminate and that’s why you have stopped ‘flipping’.
      You are now a ‘swinger’ whereas before you were a ‘hitter’ and wrong.
      The reason you feel much more solid and powerful through impact is because you have realigned PP#3 under the index knuckle of your right hand against the club handle.

    “…center of gravity of the hand…”?

Yes, you heard me, one of the best drills we have is the battering ram drill. It is awesome for getting the relationship between body turn and arm swing correct, and improving your impact conditions. Enjoy the video, and hope this helps!
