Do You Have A “Handsy” Golf Swing?

Why is that golfers love to use their hands so much in the golf swing. Especially the closer they get to the green. Roll the face open, cock the wrists, you name it, I’ve seen it. Well in today’s video Mr. Short Game shows you how to eliminate, or at least, minimize the use of your hands in the golf swing, especially on those 30-40 yard shots. Removing hand action will keep the club face square in your back swing and through impact.

    Mr. Short Game. You rule the short shots!!! I recommend my fellow golfers who are struggling to watch your videos. They WORK!!! And it is something that you can start to do after watching your video. And it helps with the full swing. Thank you and keep the tips coming!!

    I can’t wait to try it this year, problem is I live in Buffalo and it is actually supposed to snow this weekend (May 9th & 10th!). I hope I don’t forget it before i get the chance to take it out on the course. At any rate I’ll keep watching to improve my game, thanks!!

    Mr. Short Game. I am on average a 8 handicap, from 70 yards out I have complete confidence in my swing. Anything inside 50 yards I become a complete disaster. I have tried for numerous years trying to hit with 2 hands on the club. I have tried cross-handed, gripping like a baseball bat with no interlock grip. I have tried 1 hand chipping with my right hand, currently I am chipping left hand only on the club. I played tennis in college and my right arm is very dominate on the chipping technique, I honestly can not feel my left hand on the 2 handed chip. I will dig into the ground and sometimes miss the complete ball because I hit in front of the ball, if I do make contact I will blade it across the green. I get so frustrated when all my golfing buddies tell me to do this, try this. I am a complete headcase.

    I definitely will try this drill today and see if I can get my confidence back. Thanks for doing this video and look forward to trying.

    Great video, but i’d love to see this same type of swing and hand motion as it would be applied in the full swing.Thanks.
