After viewing this video, the thought of Hogan's right forefinger pressure point came to mind;
As explained by Ben in the Colman video.
If I lose that pressure on the handle, things tend to fall apart.

How crucial balance is.

Yes I am crazy........

From the top, Hogan's forefinger is receiving the pressure from the lagging clubhead, while through impact his pivot pushes the right forefinger against the shaft.  You can lose that pressure by pushing against it with the right hand independently of the pivot and end up chasing a thrown away clubhead.

You have to grip the club don't you?"

After viewing I had to try it as they looked liked golf clubs to me.

I took a woodenTom Weiskopf driver, a Taylor R580, and a 1 iron, within less than a minute they balanced.
My grandson was impressed.

Mike,

The thing I noticed was the use of the forearms antagonist and protagonist, The pressure between the last finger of the left and the fore finger of the right is great.
The remaining fingers and thumbs just touched the club, I really sense the weight of the club at the top, and with the pressure points working together I never lose
the feel of the clubhead, especially when using moderate to light tension between the two.

At impact I let go into ulna deviation.

Diz,

You are becoming an artist.
You have transformed your clubs from  bludgeons to fine instruments.


Now they are weapons.
