Read an interesting article recently..and you know how you could read articles throughout the year(s) and over time tips and instructors go against what another article by another instructor said. Well this struck me as that at first. So we've always heard you should keep your grip pressure light..6 or 7 out of 10. that too much tension impedes the ability of the wrists to rotate, cock, etc. So I was reading this article from in Golf or GD, and the expert was saying yes that's true BUT in his working with tour pros and top caliber golfers, that their grip strength was significantly strongs than amateurs and therefore even at 7 out of 10 on a scale, they are still exhibiting more pressure than we do. I guess it's all relative ...their 6 of 10 and our 6 of 10 are similar percentage wise but that their actual grip pressure is still a lot more than ours. Which makes since given some of the more violent swings we've seen on tour over the years.
