I have been wondering what difference it would make whether the grip pressure is “tight” or “light” since the hands do not participate in the good golf swing in anyway other than to constantly pressure wise hold the club as we do the most important @ROTATING THROUGH TO FINISH . I am asking this question because I have been holding “firm” and I am still wondering whether I would have done better with lighter pressure. Please let me know your views about this for confidence and practice. Thank you and warm welcome to 2021 my teacher and mentor. Your loyal disciples
What is important is that the grip pressure remain constant. The best grip pressure for each golfer, is the one that will allow the setup shape (shaft in line with the front arm with a square club face), to return the same. If that takes a firm feeling pressure then do that. My experience has been the lighter pressures allow the wrists (hence club face) to move around and makes it more difficult to return square or even worse, to flip the club head creating off center hits and inconsistent direction.
