How to Not Use Hands in Heavy Rough – Discipline

One of my students stated that he thought that my method of using the “Turn” and Large Muscles to hit the ball was great but, it would be hard to not help with the hands in heavy rough. Here is my reply that addresses a common short fall of many golfers that want to change their swing:

Heavy rough can change things and yes it does take concentration to not feel the need to help using the hands. What eventually eliminates the use of the hands is practice, discipline and a routine that does not use hands but just uses the “Mass” of the body turn. Everything throughout the body, arms and club is moving the ball the ball equally. The more my students groove passive hands during the swing, the more the Large Muscles control the swing. Once this is trusted and becomes automatic, hands are not an option (because they won’t help just disrupt). This is evolved but attainable with players who practice and trust their routine and visualization. This takes discipline for about 12 sec per shot but, months of practice to learn Discipline.
