I'm working on keeping the right thumb and forefinger close together a la the Hogan book.  I know I re-grip sometimes withe the right hand and this certainly helps.  I have to say that it feels uncomfortable.

Has anyone in this forum gone into deep analysis of this aspect of the grip.  Hogan seemed pretty adamant about this lack of separation in Five Lessons.

thanks in advance!

Five Lessons is where I first started and so it's where I learned the grip and he is definitely adamant about it. I think his goal for the grip was to form a single unit working together instead of two hands on the club. The thumb of the right hand and the index finger of the right hand are not part of this single unit and he explains this by saying that to get the feel of a real, connected grip you should swing the club with those two fingers off the club and you will realize what the purpose of the grip is. I know that for me it just feels natural to do now and feels right.

I find that the details of my grip have a major impact on my ball flight.  I've found the 5 lessons by Hogan to be an excellent resource that I refer back to, time and time again.  Hogan shows and describes details about the grip that are really valuable.  I am just amazed at how many other golf books, some of them very good, just do not spend much time on the grip details.

The weaker is the RH grip the better is the connection between the thumb and the hand. It's biophysics. Do not concentrate on the connection but on making the RH grip weaker than the lead one - that's all.
